From Publishers Weekly

Although Jerusalem's Hope, book six in the Zion Legacy series with Viking, was supposedly the conclusion, this new offering from Tyndale picks up the same basic story line and many familiar characters. It's now 2002, and Moshe Sachar takes his youngest son, Shimon, through a secret passage to an underground library chamber. There, Shimon is shown a cache of 70 scrolls and told to begin studying the fourth (other scrolls were the premise of earlier books in the series). The words of the document begin, "Those who lived in darkness have seen a great light..." Several pages later, the novel's time period changes to that of the document-New Testament times-where the story revolves around a young blind beggar named Peniel. Other familiar characters from the earlier series, including Zadok, Miryam, Nakdimon and Marcus Longinus, make appearances throughout. The text, which is a retelling of New Testament events and history at the time of Christ, is heavily padded (Peniel is repeatedly visited by Old Testament characters, and their stories retold), and the pacing drags. Although the Thoenes are veterans of historical fiction, this plot sags under the weight of choppy dialogue and one-dimensional characters. CBA readers may recoil at some fairly gruesome incidents, as when Susanna bat Maccabee carries what she believes is her lover's heart around with her in a jar, or when another character is viciously blinded with a hot dagger. While hardcore Thoene fans will add this to their collections, many readers' patience will be sorely tested by this too-long rehash of scriptural stories.

Booklist

Viking canceled the Thoenes' Zion Legacy series after its sixth entry, Jerusalem's Hope [BKL S 1 02]. Undaunted, evangelical fiction's second-best-known duo (after Jenkins and LaHaye) have come home, as it were, to Tyndale, with a new series called A.D. Chronicles. It's simply a continuation of Zion Legacy, telling the story of Moshe Sachar in present-day Israel, whose discovery of ancient scrolls frames the historical story of Yeshua. Marcus Longinus, arguably the strongest character in the series, has a vital presence in this outing, doing his best to prevent the slaughter of Jews before Passover. The Thoenes introduce several new characters, the most appealing of which is a blind teenage beggar-boy, Peniel. The shepherd Zadok and the three Sparrows return from Jerusalem's Hope, though their travails are submerged in the larger story of Jewish revolt, Roman unease, and the imminent Crucifixion. Though every public library will want First Light, it lacks the narrative punch of its predecessors, perhaps because the Thoenes have now entered territory already famously, and more passionately, treated by such novels as Quo Vadis and The Robe.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 L'AMOUR DE DIEU POUR L'HUMANITE 26 juillet 2004
Par "chsst4"
Format:Broché
Quand j'ai ouvert la première page du livre, je n'arrivais plus à le poser!! C'est une histoire fascinante et bouleversante qui relate le triomphe de l'amour sur le mal. Car Dieu a tant aimé le monde qu'il a envoyé son Fils Unique afin que quiconque croit en Lui ne périsse point mais ait la vie éternelle ( Jean 3:16). Les personnages de cette saga sont tellement attachants. J'ai été touchée par ces gens ordinaires qui, malgré leur doutes et manquements, ont été transformés par la grâce et l'amour de Jésus-Christ pour devenir des champions de la foi qui soulève des montagnes.
Ce livre relate avec justesse comment le déni dela différence peut engendrer la haine,l'intolérance et la destruction.
Jésus-Christ est la solution aux problèmes de l'humanité. Car Il est le même hier, aujourd'hui et éternellement (hébreux 13:8).
C'est un livre époustouflant que je recommanderai à quiconque. Quant à moi, j'attends la suite avec impatience...

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Danger and Intrigue in 1st Century Jerusalem 22 août 2003
Par Mark Baker - Carstairs Considers - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
The Passover riot is dieing down. But the political turmoil is just heating up. Pilot and Herod Antipas want someone to blame. Centurion Marcus Longinus is caught in the cross fire and must carry out a mission to Alexandria to avoid being falsely accused. Meanwhile, Susanna is caught in a high stakes battle between brothers battling for her hand in marriage. And Manaen just wants his share of the inheritance. Blind beggar Peniel waits for the coming Messiah. Maybe he'll come this Pentecost.

While this may be the official start of the Thoenes' new series, it doesn't feel like it. The story starts moments after the end of their last novel, JERUSALEM'S HOPE, so it's best to read that book first. (Like that's a real chore.) After a brief update on Moshe in the prolog (set in 2002), they proceed to bring us back to the characters we've gotten to know in the first Century.

I love these books because of the background they bring. While combining familiar Bible stories together in novel form, they give a historic context that I enjoy getting. I also enjoy watching the workings and politics of the Roman Empire. My favorite character is probably Marcus because of his journey toward faith the more time he spends around Yeshua.

Unfortunately, this book didn't live up to the recent books the Thoenes have written. They sometimes got so caught up in explaining Jewish life and customs that they over do it. Some passages skirt across a fine line and come across as more preachy then expository. Finally, the non-Biblical climax seems rushed. They can do better then this.

Long time fans will relish another story from these masters of the craft. While not their best, it is still an entertaining read that will transport you to another place and time.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A sobering story of hope 6 décembre 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com

I was greatly uplifted by this book. It is very well written and quite imaginative, but also based in good research. You might say that it combines the historical adventure of Ben Hur by Gen. Lew Wallace, and the political-religious intrigue of The Day Christ Died by Jim Bishop (written some 40 years ago). You might say that, but you'd be wrong. There is artistry in this story that gives it an original perspective on the final days of the Second Temple period. In a rather oblique way, Jesus is not the central figure in this narrative, yet He is the core that animates almost every character. Some can see Him, others can't. But Jesus is there, nevertheless, and he does have some minor speaking parts. This is a story of redemption of frail and fuming people, like ourselves today. Actually it is very much like today. Not much has changed in 2000 years, or 4000 years, or even 6000 years. It is a true historical novel and a great drama of life. It will give you insights into the New Testament story. If you've been to Jerusalem, you will experience the old city as if you were there at the time of Herod, the ancient Sanhedren, Nicodemos. The story revolves around a poor Jewish begar who is blind from birth. I was so touched by the story that I listened to the CD set after reading the book. What a story! I saw myself in so many of the characters and I felt the compassion of the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in my own life. The most wonderful parts of this story are when the blind boy is visited in his dreams of the Ushpazin -- by Isaac, Jacob and others. I can't describe the skill with which these parts were read in the CD version. I guess all I am trying to say is that this book touched my heart when I needed it, and it helped me through my own dark nights and days. If you are a Christian, you will come away with a greater love for the Jewish heart and the G-d that gives us hope. If you are a Jew, you will possibly understand better that gentiles need salvation as much as anyone, and that G-d was so kind to provide a redeemer of such enduring strength and compassion. This novel gives hope because it deals with The Hope -- Hatikva.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 insightful, touching 19 mai 2004

I just finished this wonderful story and rushed to my computer to order #2. The Thoene's do their usual masterful work of historical accuracy, great character development, and insight into the complexities of the human condition. I strongly identified with Peniel and when he was healed, I wept. This is a moving account of how lives are set free by the great I AM when we choose to seek Him. It is different in style and scope than their previous works, so don't expect it to be the same as their past series. I can see in this book the culmination of the Thoene's writing and research experience, as well as the fruit of their maturing faith. Enjoy!!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Fast paced ... 5 septembre 2003
Par Huntress Reviews - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Appreciation of the world in which Christ walked perhaps is not essential to enjoyment and edification when reading the gospels, but it helps. As you read First Light, that time and place will become clearer to you, and you will gain new insight into the depths of the Messiah, despite the fact that He plays only a peripheral role in the story.
First Light's story is told through many eyes. Mananen emerges as the young man who asked Jesus to judge the matter of inheritance between him and his corrupt brother, Demos. The fact that Demos' name resembles the word demon is not a coincidence. Demos is wily and diabolical as the name implies. It is not only money that divides the brothers, but the love of a woman, Susanna. She truly loves Mananen, but Demos is powerful and determined to have her, no matter what blood price that demands.
Then, there is Mananen's truest friend, a blind beggar who offers him and Susanna what help he can. Peniel, blind from birth has greater vision than many who can see. His kind and generous heart is displayed in many ways, and he is rewarded by helping prove that Yeshua (Jesus) is truly the Son of the Living God.
**** Fast paced and detailed, the Thoenes give us a tale that will give new life to Bible reading. The unheard voices of the gospels come to life and bring new depth to old stories. You will gain a new appreciation for the wit and wisdom of Christ by the time the last page is turned. ****

What a special book. I loved when this series changed directions, and looked at the past through ancient scrolls. I'm so glad I kept scanning this series till Jerusalem Scrolls (book 4). So when the latest one arrived from Amazon, - First Light, I actually hugged the book, anticipating these next moments of reading a special book. You readers know what I mean - when you know it means cuddling up in a corner with a good book. Now that I've started reading this one - First Light - I'm absorbed again right away with the continuance of the characters. The characters are so special and intertwined into this story. I've smiled a lot, teared a bit. For you who would like to read something special in the time of Yeshua, enjoy (but make sure you begin with book 4 - Jerusalem Scrolls). I can see many other sides of the times of Jesus. What great fiction! So excuse me while I curl up on my couch to finish this great book. Thanks a bunch, Thoene's.
