    A History few of us know about (well i knew little about) As a Christian i know we were first classed as He's that Believe CHRIST to be the Messiah and in the early days those of the way lived as Jews to this effect.

( You probably know this) but how much off our Jewish heritage do we know our understand. This is a important part of the history of Judaism which came about from their time in Exile and is the time between the exile and the Roman conquest which was active in the times of CHRIST earthly journey (,your right I'm sure there is a better way of putting that) . The story very much based on fact and researched in great detail tells of Judah his parents and brothers and many important people from this era both friends and enemies and unfortunately they had fellow Jews doing the job for them at times. Mind is that not the case for every group in history.

    Wonderful book I had heard of the Maccabees but didn’t know very much about the family or their times. This book goes into great detail about the times of the people and the locations. I like the footnotes very much as well as the videos that accompany the story. I would buy more of Amit Arad’s books no matter what he wrote about.

    History of God's Warriors 5 Stars for bringing this piece of Jewish history to light for a Christisn and Jewish audience.

    Really good Just really good. I enjoyed every book in this series. Well written, it always comes across to my kindle with typos/spelling errors but that is only a little bit distracting from the readability.

    Fascinating historical record I loved the historical texts and the notations of historical figures versus author created figures for a backstory I found this book very exciting .

    Wonderful historical series about a relatively unknown Judean leader who rose to prominence during a critical period of time for Judaism and it’s survival. Well written and highly entertaining.

    Enjoyed every minute reading both books Excellent and insightful glimpse of this pivotal time of history. Historical novels such as this give us a more intimate view of life and personal experiences of people who made an impact during this time period. Amit Arad did an outstanding bringing these people to life.

    This was an interesting read, as it put flesh on the history of the Maccabee rebellion, and this Book gives an interesting insight to the history of the Jewish nation and Judas Maccabee. I enjoyed this book, but preferred the earlier book The Lions of Jacobee as it gave the background history that I lacked.

    I have often wondered about the Maccabee Rebellion, and took a chance on these 2 books. Very interesting reading with movies inserted along the way. As with the first book, this one used terms, phrases and even words that I thought were out of place, or even inappropriate, for the books. That said, they were book genre's I normally wouldn't read, and I'm happy to say I really enjoyed them. I have often wondered about the Maccabee Rebellion, and took a chance on these 2 books.

    Great book. I don't give very many five stars I loved this book. Great writing and description of what went on during this time in Israel and surrounding lands. This was a good time of year to read this with Chanukah coming a little over two weeks Great book. I don't give very many five stars I loved this book.

    It's OK The characters are a bit less wooden and the writing a little less stilted - with some verbal anachronisms - but it is at least interesting It's OK The characters are a bit less wooden and the writing a little less stilted - with some verbal anachronisms - but it is at least interesting
