He trains my hands for war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze. ??from the Song of David (2 Samuel 22:35)

The Bronze Bow, written by Elizabeth George Speare (author of The Witch of Blackbird Pond) won the Newbery Medal in 1962. This gripping, action-packed novel tells the story of eighteen-year-old Daniel bar Jamin??a fierce, hotheaded young man bent on revenging his father's death by forcing the Romans from his land of Israel. Daniel's palpable hatred for Romans wanes only when he starts to hear the gentle lessons of the traveling carpenter, Jesus of Nazareth. A fast-paced, suspenseful, vividly wrought tale of friendship, loyalty, the idea of home, community...and ultimately, as Jesus says to Daniel on page 224: "Can't you see, Daniel, it is hate that is the enemy? Not men. Hate does not die with killing. It only springs up a hundredfold. The only thing stronger than hate is love." A powerful, relevant read in turbulent times.

A moving re-read, a decade after memorizing portions of the story to perform. My perspective has changed and new elements stood out to me. But it's still interesting historically and culturally, and both inspiring and challenging religiously and personally. ( )

After Daniel bar Jamin's father is crucified by the Roman Empire, Daniel wants nothing more than to rid his land of Israel of Roman control once and for all. Yet when David meets Jesus of Nazareth, a traveling carpenter with a gentle message of love and forgiveness, David starts to realize that the hate festering in his heart might be his true enemy after all.

The book documents the slow change of heart for a boy with every reason to hate the Roman occupiers in his Palestine home. By letting family obligations and friendships intrude into his one-track life path toward revolution, he unknowingly opens himself up to love and friendship. He further spoils his plans by spending time listening to Jesus of Nazareth teach, opening his mind beyond the small definition of the Kingdom of God and the desire for revenge. It’s a slow change, as often happens, and the ending leaves many loose ends, but the story is still told - a story full of doubt and a little bit messy, but very beautiful. ( )

Reminded me a bit of Ben-Hur. Speare has a gift of delicately building up to the climax. It wasn't until the last twenty pages that I realized how I cared for the characters. It was a lovely journey, thoughtfully paced, that ended with a message which, although obvious, was not overly preachy. ( )
