About the Author
Audiobook Narrator: Jim Hodges began reading aloud in the second grade with a stirring rendition of Dick and Jane. He continued to volunteer to speak throughout his schooling years, performed as a newscaster while in the Navy, and participated in community theater groups. His wife, Monica, once asked what his dream job would be. He answered, ''I'd record books.'' And so began Jim Hodges Audio Books, producing unabridged recordings of the G. A. Henty historical novels, children's books, Overtly Christian titles, and classic literature.

"For the Temple" re-ignites my love and passion for God's chosen people. The Lord will restore and already is restoring to them the years which the locusts have destroyed! Praise the Lord!!!!
All in all, this is a fantastic read. I recommend that everyone read this if they get the chance.
I bet Heirloom Audio will do an audio drama soon. And I bet it will be great!
I have several of Henty's books, and they are all excellent. An easy way to learn about history.

3 stars & 3/10 hearts. This is a bit of a tough book to read. The fall of Israel/the Temple was a terrible, horrible event full of death & destruction. And yet the saddest part is how wicked & foolish the Israelites were. But I do like John, and I can’t help liking Titus... and there is still humour. The book is very thought-provoking, and while I don’t agree with everything, it is clean (although full of the distressing & bloody events of the war) & mostly accurate on the religion side.
A Favourite Quote: “‘Brave men should always be gentle,’ John said, positively.”
A Favourite Humorous Quote: “Castor himself stood on the parapet, and offered Titus to surrender. Titus promised him his life[.] He then asked Josephus, who was standing beside him, to go forward and assure Castor and his companions that their lives should be spared. Josephus, however, knew the way of his countrymen too well, and declined to endanger his life.”
