Young people across America are rediscovering G. A. Henty, the nineteenth-century literary genius whose historical adventures inspire boys toward honesty, courage, and duty. Writing from a Christian perspective, Henty weaves the adventures of a fictional boy hero together with real-life events.

This stirring tale chronicles the last days of the Temple at Jerusalem. As robber bands and political infighting set the stage for the Roman destruction of Jerusalem, John, a fifteen-year-old Galilean, finds himself in the forefront of events. After escaping the massacre at Jotapata, John becomes a hero to the Jews and a scourge to the Romans. He defends Jerusalem during the Roman siege and even fights Titus himself in hand-to-hand combat. Though he is fighting a losing battle, John proves his enduring integrity and honor.

    " This is one of my new favorite Henty books. Henty does a great job with blending history, into an action/adventure story of the fall of Jerusalem. "

    " Great historical fiction about the fall of the temple in Jerusalem in 70 AD. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Darren Anderson | 7/4/2009

    " Although it falls to second place on my list of Henty books, it was certainly the most informative. This was a fascinating period of history, and it is brought to life through the eyes of a very realistic young character. Amazing stuff. "

    " Highly recommend this book to anyone interested in Henty's works. This is one of his more interesting books in terms of "earlier" history. "
