The reason I chose 5 stars was because this series usually I walk past, but on a friends recommendation I picked up the first book I was pleasantly surprised I loved this book So much that I bought the entire series in a nice collection I loved the History and the fact that the characters and the events are actual events and real people that lived in these most trying times of faith and perseverance I loved the fact that this book brought this History to life for me about the creation of th The reason I chose 5 stars was because this series usually I walk past, but on a friends recommendation I picked up the first book I was pleasantly surprised I loved this book So much that I bought the entire series in a nice collection I loved the History and the fact that the characters and the events are actual events and real people that lived in these most trying times of faith and perseverance I loved the fact that this book brought this History to life for me about the creation of the Jewish state of Israel I liked the characters and the fictional conversations I think sometimes the folks that give this book a dismal review are probably not Christians and every book they read has to be epic of sorts I cat wait to get into the other continuing series from Thoene This book was like reading a B movie Some books can seamlessly blend historical fiction, romance, adventure, suspense, cultural issues this is not one of them The closest is comes to fulfilling any of these would be historical fiction The characters are generally stereotypical and shallow, the premis is grossly biased, and I have to balk at any theme that makes one race of people the bad guy it takes a subject that is complex, historical, and sensitive and reduces it to the cognitive le This book was like reading a B movie Some books can seamlessly blend historical fiction, romance, adventure, suspense, cultural issues this is not one of them The closest is comes to fulfilling any of these would be historical fiction The characters are generally stereotypical and shallow, the premis is grossly biased, and I have to balk at any theme that makes one race of people the bad guy it takes a subject that is complex, historical, and sensitive and reduces it to the cognitive level of a fourth grader One redeeming area can be found in a few religious Judaism vs Christianity conversations between various characters Yet, it s easy to feel that these islands of intellect are there to bolster the progaganda of the book rather than from the depth of the characters personality.There is really no feeling of suspense when there should be, and with the possible exception of Reb Lebowitz and Yacov, who are minor characters, you could really care less who loves who or who lives or dies
