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 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.
Timeless Oct 30, 2006

AD Chronicles Nov 30, 2005
I have read the first 3 books in this series and all I can say is WOW!!! I can't wait to read the Fourth Dawn! These books have given me a renewed interest in bible study and examining His word. I love how they go into more detail about the people that Jesus touched on His many travels throughout the Holy Land. I have enjoyed every moment of reading these delightful books and will read the other series once I have finished this one!
