After witnessing his father’s crucifixion by Roman soldiers, Daniel bar Jamin yearns for vengeance. Consumed by hatred, he lives dangerously among outlaws in the hills outside of his village, spying and impatiently plotting. 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 along his own destructive path. Winner of the 1962 Newbery Medal, The Bronze Bow is the story of a boy’s tormented journey from a blinding hatred to the acceptance and understanding of love.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The scene is Jerusalem at the time of Christ, the characters vividly real, the story gripping.” Boston Herald 
“A moving, vivid, and well-written picture of the spiritual vs. the material, vengeance vs. love.” School Library Journal (starred review)
“The story centers around Daniel…[whose] emotions and prejudices are the basis of this complex novel that is as powerful today as when it was awarded the Newbery medal over twenty years ago.” AudioFile
“A dramatic, deeply felt narrative whose characters and message will long be remembered.” Booklist
