For the Temple (large print)

ByG. A. Henty

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
G. A. Henty writes: "In all history, there is no drama of more terrible interest than that which terminated with the total destruction of Jerusalem." Oppressed by Rome for decades, the Jews fought zealously during the years 66 - 70 A.D. Drawing upon the eyewitness narrative of the Jewish historian Josephus, Henty presents the desperate conflict through the eyes of John of Gamala, a young man who fights valiantly for the sanctity of the Temple, and the freedom of his people. Although it is a mere footnote for many historians, this tragic confrontation with Rome was predicted by Jesus nearly 40 years before, and marks a major historical turning point for both Christians and Jews. (6"x9" large print paperback with 8 full page illustrations; includes footnotes defining obscure or uncommon words)
