The Bronze Bow, by Elizabeth George Speare, tells the story of eighteen-year-old Daniel bar Jamin, a young Jewish Zealot bent on revenging his father’s death by driving the Romans out of the land of Israel. Daniel’s hatred for Romans wanes only when he starts to hear the teaching of the traveling carpenter, Jesus of Nazareth. The Bronze Bow, which won the Newberry Medal in 1962, is a moving work for young and adult readers alike.
