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.

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.

Great Story Feb 23, 2007
This book is excellently done. I plan on buying more of their books.
Great book Aug 11, 2006
I am not one who makes a habit of writing reviews but felt compelled to after reading this book. This is a first Thoene book for me and I will most certainly read more of them. The book so vividly portrays the attitudes toward Christ during his ministry from many different vantage points, from Pharisee to Sadducee to leper to Gentile. It is told through the lives of main characters whose lives have been influenced then changed by the ministry of Christ. It is so very easy to see oneself in each and every one of these characters and draw parallels to your own relationship with Christ today. Very thought provoking and not one to just whip through. A great book for a Christian. Non Christian may or may not like it.
A look at Christ through a different glass Jul 13, 2006
This book is exceptional, as was the one before it. For those individuals who have an abiding faith in Jesus, this series is exceptional. I, personally, enjoy the way the authors have written the story, taking several people, who could have lived in the time of Christ, and told "their" stories, and how Christ helped them. It is truly an enjoyable series.
Second Touch will touch you! Jan 10, 2006
This series is wonderful! "Second Touch" is quite possibly my favorite book from this series to date. The historical facts about lepers and their colonies combined with the heart wrenching story of one is the definition of truly brilliant historical fiction. Give this series a try. You won't be disappointed! Even if you have never read the Thoene's works before this would be a great series to start with.
Wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sep 9, 2005
I read the first book in this series because a local christian store was selling them for $5 with a new membership. I loved it so much that I could not wait to read the second. I am 2 chapters in and have already ordered the 3rd!!!!!
