As a young boy, 18-year-old Daniel witnessed his father's crucifixion at the hands of the Romans. Consumed by hate, his one desire is to drive the legions from Israel. But as he works with a band of outlaws using guerrilla tactics, he also begins to pay attention to the teachings of a wandering rabbi from a nearby town. Caught between his desire for revenge and the demands of his family, Daniel goes repeatedly to hear Jesus preach. Each time he leaves disappointed that Jesus doesn't take a stand against the Romans. Will Daniel learn to heed the message of forgiveness before his violent lifestyle leads to disaster? Twice awarded the Newbery Medal, Elizabeth George Speare also received the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award in recognition of her collected body of historical fiction. Narrator Pete Bradbury gracefully brings life to Daniel and deftly illuminates the world he lived in.

Professional reviews

"The story centers around Daniel, a young Jewish rebel with an intense hatred of the Romans. Daniel believes that Israel's only hope is for a battle that will drive the Romans away once and for all, and resists his reactions to Jesus's speeches about love and forgiveness. Pete Brad-bury's narration presents Daniel and the other characters, including Jesus, with a well-modulated and accentless presentation that highlights the emotional journey of the main character. Daniel's emotions and prejudices are the basis of this complex novel that is as powerful today as when it was awarded the Newbery medal over twenty years ago. E.J.F.
