A Changed Heart
Who was your favorite character and why?
My favorite character was Facia becuase she was intuitive in how she responded to all characters and was a link that held the different world views and cultures together.
What three words best describe Mary Woods’s performance?
Good reading of the novel but not a lot of change was given to dramatize and represent the changes in characters and the changing heart of Daiel.
If you could take any character from The Bronze Bow out to dinner, who would it be and why?
I would take Leah out to dinner. After Jesus frees her to live life to the full- it would be refreshing to watch the childlike wonder as she encountered experiences outside of her former life.

60's Newberry Award Winner
Set at the time of Christ, this childrens book was an enjoyable little read, reminding me of "The Big Fisherman" or "The Robe." An orphaned Jewish boy has an intense hatred against the Romans and is involved with zealots hoping to overcome the Romans. He meets Christ and eventually is able to lay the hatred aside. There are some interesting sub-plots and it would be a good read for a child who is Christian. There is an underlying Sunday School feel to it and an overt promotion of Christianity. It touches quite a bit about the Jewish rituals and law, showing them through the Christian view as being for show and not necessary. I don't think Jewish or atheist parents would be thrilled with it for their children to read, but still a nice book for the right audience.
