Two Thieves by Paul Joesph Luiso

My review today is on a book sent to me, Two Thieves. The review is my own thoughts and feeling. This book is well written and well researched. It's not a book that I can say I loved becaues it a dramatic subject. I would liken it to Ben Hur. There is much violence in this book but that was what life was like in Jesus time. I'm sure the book will inspire you.

The book starts in Jerusalem in 2 AD. Emoonah and her son watched as her husband was beaten to death because he didn't pay the temple tax. They had a really bad year and had no money to eat let alone pay taxes. Caiaphas, a priest, ordered the widow and her son to be sold to pay his debt. The widow and her son manage to escape by the help of Nicodemus, a priest. He leads her out of a secret tunnel and tells her to find a caravan of Magi. She is abducted by slave traders and her son is sodomized. He blames her. The Magi had just returned from Bethlehem and when the slavers attack them they save Emoonah, her son and one of the others slave that had befriend her, Mara

The head Magi falls in with Emoonah. He tries to talk her into going with him to Persia. She found her family and her cousin is now dead but her husband and their child are a mess she is determined to help them. Jamal, the Magi, built her a business. Then after many months he leaves her.

The cousin is a mess; a liar, a thief, and a maker of strong drink. He turns her son into a thief, a murder, and a maker of strong drink. They live in Nazareth and watch Y'shua grow to be a man. They are finally are force to leave.

The story goes clear through to the crucifixion. A dramatic story but well worth reading.
check out the book. You will love the end.
