A NOVEL ON THE FALL OF JERUSALM 70 A.D. WRITTEN FOR TEENS BUT ADULTS WILL PROFIT AS WELL!!
A stirring tale of the last days of the Temple at Jerusalem. Robber bands and political infighting sets the stage for the Roman destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70. In the face of overwhelming odds, John of Gamala does his best to save God's Temple, harrasing Roman work parties, burning Roman camps, defending Jerusalem during the Roman siege, and even fighting Titus himself in hand-to-hand combat--forging a relationship with the Roman leader that lasts until after the war. In spite of fighting a losing battle, John keeps his integrity and honor intact.
This tale follows the adventures of John of Gamala during the years of Roman occupation, political infighting, and lawlessness that resulted in the destruction of the Temple in AD 70. It puts the reader at the heart of the conflict between Rome and the greedy political groups and robber bands of Palestine.

Henty has surpassed himself with this genius piece of work. This story of the fall of Jerusalem to Titus and the Roman Army is magnificent in every aspect and deserves full credit. The words eloquent and flowing. The battle scenes real and exciting. A very well researched book taken directly from Flavius Josephus, a Jewish historian, who wintessed the siege himself. Although the speeches sometimes become rather long they are perfect examples of the way one might think in their position. The entire book is graced with stories of courage, love, greed, and God making it the crown of Henty's masterful writing.
