Publisher's Summary

In this stirring tale of the last days of the Temple at Jerusalem, robber bands and political infighting set the stage for the Roman destruction of the city in 70 A.D. In the face of overwhelming odds, John of Gamala does his best to save God's Temple, harassing Roman work parties, burning Roman camps, defending Jerusalem during the Roman siege, and even fighting Titus himself in hand-to-hand combat, forging a relationship with the Roman leader that lasts until after the war. In spite of fighting a losing battle, John keeps his integrity and honor intact.

great story

This was a great story!!! It was very entertaining and had a lot of history from the time around the fall of Jerusalem.
The narrator was just okay - so only 4stars instead of 5 ;-)

Great Book

This is a great book, but the person that reads the story does not change character voices very well. The book makes it worth the purchase though

Great historical fiction! This book provides great insight into the time when the Romans burned the temple in Jerusalem.
