Israel-Arab War, 1948-1949--Fiction;Jews--Palestine--Fiction.
Jerusalem Vigil is the first novel in a planned Zion Legacy series that will chronicle three millennia of Jerusalem's history. Jerusalem Vigil unfolds over a period of five days during the British withdrawal from Jerusalem in 1948. Its Jewish, Christian, and Arab characters find themselves drawn into a mysterious and violent tangle of events that can only be understood in reference to ancient prophesies, particularly those of the book of Isaiah. The historical detail of this book is impressively deep, and its use of Scripture is always clever and surprising. With more than 6.5 million books in print, Bodie and Brock Thoene's writing conveys the historical knowledge of authors like James Michener and Herman Wouk and has made them popular in the Christian fiction market for over a decade.
