by Bodie and Brock Thoene
The award-winning husband-and-wife team of Bodie and Brock Thoene again proves their historical fiction expertise with the first book in their long-awaited Jerusalem Chronicles series. Releasing March 19, When Jesus Wept (Zondervan) is based on the story of vineyard owner Lazarus, best known for being raised from the dead by his dear friend Jesus. The Thoenes utilize Brock’s extensive historian background, resulting in an historically and culturally accurate plot that vividly paints a picture of what might have been. We’ve all read the stories of Mary, Martha and Lazarus, but the Thoenes bring them to vivid life, connecting modern-day readers to these ancient figures in a fresh way.
