Like the previous book in the series, this one was rather predictable (although a couple of things at the end surprised me). We spend a lot of time with the lepers in the valley of Mak'ob¿I wonder if they shall return in future books. In all, a heart-wrenching and heart-warming story.

Rumors of Yeshua and His healing power have reached a leper colony. Some of them venture outside to find Him and bring Him back. Will He come heal the rest? Will it be in time? The characters are rich and deep, which makes the climax powerful, but the story does drag at times.

I just love the way the authors weave real history and the Bible characters at the time of Christ. Reading these novels has brought to life the gospel and the New Testament times. Jesus is portrayed as a real live human being who laughs and relates to others and not just some blond impersonal guy strolling around making religious statements. I can know and see Him so much more through the eyes of the authors.

This series of books is right up there with the left behind series. Start with First Light and go through them all. they bring Christ to life like no other book you've read.

Second in the series, I found Broch and Dodies writing to be compelling and insightful. I had to pace myself so I didn't finish too soon, as I don't have the next in the series, yet! It was insightful in the fact that there are lots of cultural laws that the Hebrews followed which I had never knew about. Many of them explain why they did what they did in the attempts to stay righteous and holy. As to the impact the ministry of Yashua on the Jews, well lets just say they had reasons to want him dead. Too bad they didn't see Him for who he really was.

Another great work of fiction from the Thoene's! The characters come alive for the reader, and the Thoene's have a way of writing which takes the reader back in time, and makes one feel as if you are a part of the story. These books are such that I felt such a part of them, not only were they hard to put down, but when I did finish the book, I found myself constantly thinking about the characters and wondering how they would deal with some of the common problems we face today.

Mama suspected and when Lily turned twelve knew that her little darling suffered from tsara¿at though papa remained in denial. Lily like all lepers is pronounced dead by her family and her villagers. She is forced to leave to live in exile in the Valley of Sorrows where all the lepers reside until they die................................ Six years has passed since Lily stumbled into the Valley scared and alone. Now rumors abound that a great healer has been performing miracles. . Cynics are beginning to come around in support of and belief in Jesus, but some of the most powerful question this newcomer who is shaking the establishment. Peniel saw his FIRST LIGHT due to Jesus and vows to lead the oppressed ill to the astonishing teacher. However, Lily is caring for a newborn and refuses to depart until the infant is properly placed even if it means saving her life and returning to her family or worse costing her the love of fellow outcast Cantor................................... The second AD Chronicles novel is a terrific biblical historical tale that like its predecessor FIRST LIGHT shines a deep look at the period in which Jesus is just starting to teach and perform miracles. Besides the insight to the era, the story line is exciting because the cast seems so very real though they vary in personality as some are heroic, some are cowardly and at least one is Machiavellian (over fifteen hundred years before). Characters like Lily make the tale so that the audience receives a fabulous tale of Jesus, but from the perspective of those whom he touched............................. Harriet Klausner
