Item description for Eighth Shepherd (A.D. Chronicles V8) by Bodie Thoene & Brock Thoene...
The Good Shepherd is rescuing lives across Israel...
But is this hope for all or just for His flock?
And why do so many leaders want Him dead?
Zachai, chief tax collector of Jericho, is the most hated man in all of Judea. Outside the walls of his estate, he's surrounded by four giant Nubian bodyguards. But at night he's a prisoner of his aching heart. What would it be like to be loved? To have a family?
Shimona, former leper from the Valley of Mak'ob, returns to her hometown of Jericho to proclaim that Yeshua has healed her. When no one believes her story, she is shunned and sent to live alone as the caretaker of a grove of sukomore fig trees. Month after month she holds on tightly to hope in the midst of her loneliness.
A former prince among the Nubian tribes, Salmon was betrayed and sold into slavery. Now one of the few treasures he has, his little daughter Marisha, is dying. Salmon has heard stories of Yeshua's miracles. But would the Great Shepherd have mercy on a sheep that's outside Israel's flock? Each day Marisha grows weaker.

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.

Eighth Shepherd (A. D. Chronicles, Book 8) Aug 21, 2008
Once again, I didn't want to put this book down. These writers are EXCELLENT!!!
Eighth Shepherd - Book 8 Aug 10, 2008
I started reading the Thoene's books several years ago and enjoy them with my heart and mind. They bring history to life. I started out with the Zion Legacy & went on to A.D. Chronicles. I couldn't get enough so I began the Zion Covenant and only need to read the last two of the Zion Chronicles. I have a total of 22 of their books. I just can't get enough of their writing. Their books bring out so many emotions - they are all about God and His son, Jesus, and how they intervene in our lives. Their books are about hope - don't we need that in these days, too?
Review of Eighth Shephert Aug 1, 2008
This book is faithful to the Biblical message, but "fleshes out" the biblical narrative with fictional characters and events. It is very exciting, very inspiring, and very Biblical.
Eighth Shepherd by the Thoene's Aug 1, 2008
Loved the book -- continuing the fictionalized (but historically accurate) story of Jesus' time on earth.
C.D Chronicles - 8th Shepherd Aug 1, 2008
I love Bodie Thoene's books...all of them and have read most everything she has written and recommended them to others. Brock does the research and it is super! The insight into the Scriptures is beautiful and very informative. This book gives you a lot to think about and has gotten me to not only think about what she has written, but has had me check out the Scriptures again. I have shared her books with friends and now they too are fans. I never start a series of her books until she has quite a few of them out as I hate to wait for the next one. 8th Shepherd doesn't disappoint and the C.D. Chronicles will be rated as among her best.
