Publisher's Summary

After witnessing his father's crucifixion by Roman soldiers, Daniel bar Jamin is fired by a single passion: to avenge his father's death by driving the Roman legions from the land of Israel. Consumed by hatred, Daniel leads a dangerous life living with an outlaw band in the hills outside his village, spying and plotting, impatiently waiting to take revenge.In nearby Capernaum, a rabbi is teaching a different lesson. Time and again Daniel is drawn to the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, only to turn away, disappointed and confused by Jesus' lack of action in opposing the Romans. Headstrong and devoid of tenderness, Daniel is also heedless of the love and loyalty of those around him, dragging them down his destructive path toward disaster.Winner of the 1962 Newbery Medal, The Bronze Bow is the story of a boy's tormented journey from a blind, confining hatred to his acceptance and understanding of love.
