"What was it like to live in the world of Julius Caesar, Cleopatra and Herod, and how did the politics (and decadence) of the era impact the Jewish leaders when Jesus the Nazarene walked the earth?
The authors draw on the historical writings of Josephus, Roman historical documents and the Bible to put the times in context and suggest the daily challenges faced by all residents of the era.
The authors give the reader a vivid sense of the corrupt politics, in the fighting and scheming that went on between the Roman government, the powerful Roman generals, their puppet Roman leaders and the Jewish people, who had their own laws. One cannot help but compare it to the current events in Syria and the continued struggles in the Middle East.
A very enjoyable and enlightening read!"

"I could not believe how much I had learned after sitting down with for just 30 Minutes with one of these books! Fascinating and educational for children and adults! The world of art can open so many doors."
"Same town, same lawyer as Grisham's most popular novel - "A Time to Kill." A wealthy man hangs himself and leaves the majority of his wealth to his housekeeper. Question is why? With true Grisham flair of intrigue, conspiracy, suspense, courtroom drama and plot twists, but with the Old Southern ways. You will not be disappointed."
"Without a doubt one of the best works of fiction I have had the pleasure of reading. A young boys life is turned upside down after a family tragedy in New York City. The author's stunningly descriptive language makes every line a joy to read as she fleshes out the characters in a way that you feel you know them intimately. 5 STARS!!"
