The Zion Chronicles
The Zion Chronicles series covers the events surrounding Israel's statehood in 1948.
Each book vividly portrays the intense struggle of the Jewish people in the aftermath of the Holocaust and the forces, within and without, which engulf the Middle East in conflict and controversy even today.
These updated classics feature a new look and added study questions suitable for individual use or group discussion.
BODIE AND BROCK THOENE (pronounced Tay-nee) have written over 70 works of historical fiction. Over thirty-five million of these best-selling novels are in print in 30 languages. Eight ECPA Gold Medallion Awards affirm what millions of readers have already discovered: the Thoenes are not only master stylists but experts at capturing readers minds and hearts.
Bodie's byline appeared in prestigious periodicals such as U.S. News and World Report, The American West, and The Saturday Evening Post. She also worked for John Waynes Batjac Productions and ABC Circle Films as a writer and researcher. John Wayne described her as a writer with talent that captures the people and the times! She has degrees in journalism and communications.
In 2016, Bodie's writing returned to the big screen with the release of I'm Not Ashamed: The Diary of Rachel Joy Scott
Brock is described by Bodie as an essential half of the writing team. With degrees in both history and education, Brock has, in his role as researcher and story-line consultant, added the vital dimension of historical accuracy. Due to such careful research, The Zion Covenant and The Zion Chronicles series are recognized by the American Library Association, as well as Zionist libraries around the world, as classic historical novels and are used to teach history in college classrooms.
Bodie and Brock have four grown children: Rachel, Jake, Luke, and Ellie, and nine grandchildren.
