Publishers Description In this bestselling series Bodie and Brock Thoene have thrilled readers with an epic tale chronicling the struggle for the world's holiest and most turbulent city. As "Jerusalem's Hope" opens, strategist Moshe Sachar remains hidden in a secret tunnel beneath the Temple Mount, safely removed from the chaos of Israel's 1948 war of independence, while the funeral of an elder rabbi proceeds above him. Using the instructions the rabbi gave him before his death, Moshe opens another sacred scroll and is once again transported to the dramatic biblical story of a charismatic but mysterious prophet. As word of the miracles performed by this seer spreads, bloody violence erupts, threatening the future of the Roman state and revealing the prophet's surprising identity.

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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Jerusalems Hope (Zion Legacy V6)?
A Must-read! Jan 21, 2007
This book and all the other books that are in the series is fantastic. The Thoene's writing is realistic, factual when necessary and I am trying to catch up on all their books. I would recommend this entire series for anyone who does not know much about what happened to Israel before and after they became a nation. Make sure you start with the first book in the series.
The Thoene's continue to surprise!! Apr 1, 2004
I am simply amazed at the incredible knowledge I have learned from this book. It is simply a wonderful read. From the telling of this story, I have learned about the Jewish faith and it's Passover and also about the belief they have in the coming of their "Messiah" which is prophesized throughout the Torah. After being a Sunday School teacher for 17 years, this says alot for the Thoene's. However, I did not just read this for it's biblical sense alone, I read it for it's characters too. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the development of Marcus and Miryam and what had become of the "Sparrows." If you have read the other books in the series, then you too will find this book a pleasant addition to the collection!
Another Wonderful, Rich Read Jan 29, 2004
I loved this book. It was very touching in many places and made so clear the importance of the lamb as sacrifice for sin for the Jewish people. The story of the children, the lambs and Zadok was wonderful. The ending of the book brought me to tears. I can't wait to read First Light!
Predictable Jul 1, 2003
I enjoyed (JERSALEM'S HOPE)but I would like to continue on with the original story. The story was so predictable that I knew what was going to happen before it did but I still continued to read.
Not as intriguing as the preceding books Apr 26, 2003
In just a few words, I can honestly say I agree with John Mort from Booklist. Read his review of this book and you will find my thoughts. I was disappointed.I had a difficult time finishing it.
