More About Bodie Thoene & Brock Thoene
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.

Great Dec 31, 2000
I believe this book is very good and accurate. I did not like the way the series kept you hanging at the very end, until I found out about the Zion Legacy Series which takes up right where this book leaves off.
Great book! Jul 28, 2000
I read this series when I was in the seventh or eight grade. I found this to be a REALLY good series. It has a little bit of everything to make it a truely captivating book. It has historical facts in it, along with some of the Jewish language, romance, and lots of adventure! While I was reading this series, my father and I would sit around and discuss the books at night. I definatly recommend this book if you want something really good to read!
This was the best series ever! Jul 23, 1999
I absolutely loved this series. However, I feel that the ending was incomplete. You are left guessing at what happens to the characters. Were Ellie, Moshe, and Rachel reunited? Did Rachel see Yacov and Grandfather again? Do David and Ellie go back to the States? I think that Bodie Thoene needs to write another to wrap all this up! Please write to me, I want to know if others feel the same!
The best book books I have ever read Jul 10, 1999
The Zion Covenant and Cronicle books are all very inspiring. It helped my faith more than any other Christian book I have ever read. I couldn't put any of the books down. These are the exact kind of books you want in your Church library. Bodie Thoene's books are the best books I have ever read. She is clearly my favorite author.
Five stars isn't enough!! I've never read anything better May 6, 1999
Never have I come across a better author. Bodie Theone (tay-nee) is truly amazing. These books are full of drama. It's like the characters became my friends. When I finished the series, It felt as though I lost some good friends. I really don't know if I could be as entertained, enlightened and fulfilled by reading anything else after reading this series. Originally I was checking the series out one at a time from the library. But when I realized I'd finally found something I couldn't put down, I figured I better buy the whole series. I have never bought books before, because I've never found anything worthy of being read more than once. I was just so compelled and I want to share her writings with all my friends and family. She's spectacular. So is anything written by her husband Brock, who helps her co-write everything. It's almost like watching a movie, because there are so many plots intertwined. I was shocked to read the epilogue in RETURN TO ZION. You'll have to find out for yourself. Just don't start reading in the middle of the series. If I could never read another authors works but one it would be the Theone's. - Megan Villa
