The Bronze Bow is the story of Daniel Bar Jamin, a Galilean youth consumed by hatred of the Roman conquerors.  In the beginning, Daniel is part of the outlaw band whose leader promises to drive the invaders from the land.  The death of his grandmother and the need to assume responsibility for his sister force Daniel to give up the outlaw life and return to town.  There, he gradually gains perspective and, through a series of encounters with Jesus, comes to understand that only love can bend the bow of bronze.  The universal message of love as the source of life's strength is combined with power writing, rapidly moving action and excellent characterization.  This is a book that will speak to young people of all nations.
