Litfuse Blog Tour: When Jesus Wept by Brock and Bodie Thoene

The Thoenes never disappoint. Their painstaking research, passion for Israel and its compelling history and keen ability to breathe life into Biblical settings leaves me in constant awe.

But, alas, my schedule has been disappointing. What with a full-time job and trying my hand at this author thing, I have fallen behind in my reading and, unfortunately, have not yet completed this book I have been so anxious for.

While it's still fresh in everyone's minds and continually showing up on the  ECPA best-seller lists each week, I wanted to ensure that my readership knew it was out there and available NOW...even if your friendly neighbourhood Rachel has fallen a bit behind.

Our friends at Litfuse offered a Chat with Brock and Bodie regarding the story and... if you missed it... you can catch up by visiting the still-existing facebook site here  . If you're anything like me, you enjoy the moment when readers as voraciously passionate about the written word as yourself have a moment to zealously squeal with the authors of said words.

About the Book:

Book 1 in the Thoene’s new  Jerusalem Chronicles.
Brock and Bodie Thoene’s most powerful and climactic writing project to date, When Jesus Wept, captures the power and the passion of the men and women who lived through the most important days in the history of the world.
Lazarus occupies a surprising position in the Gospel accounts. Widely known as the man Jesus raised from the dead, his story is actually much broader and richer than that. Living as he did at Bethany, near Jerusalem, Lazarus was uniquely placed to witness the swirl of events around Jesus. When Jesus Wept, the first novel in The Jerusalem Chronicles series by bestselling authors Bodie and Brock Thoene, unfolds the turbulent times in Judea during Jesus’ ministry, centering on the friendship between Jesus and Lazarus. With rich insights from vineyard owners and vine dressers, the Thoenes explore the metaphor of Jesus as the True Vine, harvesting the ancient secrets found in the Old Testament.
Weaving the life of Lazarus, who owned a vineyard, into the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ will help you understand it is the hand of Love Divine that holds the knife, that cuts and breaks with such tender and loving touch, and that we who have born some fruit, after the pruning, can bear much more.
