Publisher's Summary

In this stirring tale of the last days of the Temple at Jerusalem, robber bands and political infighting set the stage for the Roman destruction of the city in 70 A.D. In the face of overwhelming odds, John of Gamala does his best to save God's Temple, harassing 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.

Great Book

This is a great book, but the person that reads the story does not change character voices very well. The book makes it worth the purchase though

Great historical fiction! This book provides great insight into the time when the Romans burned the temple in Jerusalem.

great story

This was a great story!!! It was very entertaining and had a lot of history from the time around the fall of Jerusalem.
The narrator was just okay - so only 4stars instead of 5 ;-)

For the Temple.

If you close your eyes on the last 5 min of this book ( Christian doctrine ) ,it's a good story based on real historical facts.

Gripping and Action-packed

Thus was my 3rd G.A. Henry novel and I was not disappointed. His likeable and noble characters won my loyalty from the start. Their adventures through actual events were believable and the historical knowledge I gained was fabulous.

Preview recommended

I highly recommend G A Henty - I didn't care to much for the narrator - on some devices it may be difficult to understand so I highly recommend listening to the sample first.
