More About Bodie Thoene, Brock Thoene & Sean Barrett
BODIE AND BROCK THOENE (pronounced Tay-nee) have written over 65 works of historical fiction. Over thirty-five million of these best-selling novels are in print. Eight ECPA Gold Medallion Awards affirms what millions of readers have already discovered—the Thoenes are not only master stylists but experts at capturing readers’ minds and hearts.
Bodie began her writing career as a teen journalist for her local newspaper. Eventually her byline appeared in prestigious periodicals such as U.S. News and World Report, The American West, and The Saturday Evening Post. She also worked for John Wayne’s Batjac Productions (she’s best known as author of The Fall Guy) and ABC Circle Films as a writer and researcher. John Wayne described her as “a writer with talent that captures the people and the times!” She has degrees in journalism and communications.
Brock has often been described by Bodie as “an essential half of this writing team.” With degrees in both history and education, Brock has, in his role as researcher and story-line consultant, added the vital dimension of historical accuracy. Due to such careful research, The Zion Covenant and The Zion Chronicles series are recognized by the American Library Association, as well as Zionist libraries around the world, as classic historical novels and are used to teach history in college classrooms.
Bodie and Brock have four grown children—Rachel, Jake, Luke, and Ellie—and eight grandchildren. Their sons, Jake and Luke, are carrying on the Thoene family talent as the next generation of writers, and Luke produces the Thoene audiobooks.

Reviews - What do customers think about First Light (A.D. Chronicles)?
Not bad Jun 9, 2008
I read this book after reading "The Kingdom and the Crown" trilogy by Gerald N. Lund and I thought it was an incomplete repetition of those books. Whereas I completely fell in love with "The Kingdom and the Crown", I found "First Light" boring and hard to read. I personally don't recommend this book.
Great May 20, 2008
I loved reading about blind Penial...wonderful history lesson and gave you a feel of really living in the time of Jesus
Great series! Mar 4, 2008
I really love this series! It's so well written and each novel after the first was tied together in such a great way. I can highly recommend this book!
A Time Line Jun 18, 2007
I get lost in time when I read books during this time period. I just finished reading another series similar to this. Very inspirational and focused on the one true Light.
Great story Feb 23, 2007
What can words say for books written by the Thoene's? I have not read any Christian books until these and I find that these are the best! They enlighten you on the life and times of Jews in Israel in the first century.
