An 18 year old boy named Daniel ran away from his home in the village to join a group of zealots fighting against Romans for the freedom of Galilean Jews. On one of his missions for new recruits Daniel meets an old friend named Joel who tells him about a preacher named Jesus. Daniel then returns to his leader and finds a message saying his grandmother had died and he needed to go to the village again and help his sister. So he goes to the village and has to move with his sister to a Blacksmith shop one of his friends gave to him to use. His sister was, as all the neighbors thought possessed for she was afraid to go outside and got sick when ever she was made to. But with the help of his neighbors he got her to the new house. Every day Daniel went to visit Jesus in Capernaum and came home to tell Leah the stories he heard. Leah wanted Jesus to come to their town and soon he did. When Daniel started going to Jesus in his town great things happened. Leah was healed and Jesus taught him that he should treat the Romans as his neighbor and that he was equal to them. The moral of the story is that When God strengthens you; you can bend a bow of Bronze.

 

The Bronze Bow is an interesting and a Great book. When you start reading it you canít stop. The book has many suspenseful moments and sad ones. Each Chapter brings more exciting events that lead to the end. The book is a little long but is worth the wait because the end is phenomenal. In all the Bronze Bow is one of the best books Iíve ever read.
