Hurtful gossip swirls around newlyweds Yosef and Mary concerning the timing of Mary's pregnancy, while the prophetess Hannah foretells the birth of Israel's true King, and astronomer Melchior notes the changes in the night sky signifying the birth of Jesus.

The little town of Nazareth is a long way from Jerusalem and King Herod's evil clutches. Yet is anywhere in Judea far enough? In their most dramatic, ambitious, and significant historical series to date, Bodie and Brock Thoene once again transport readers back in time to first century A.D. to the birth of Christ—the most critical events in the history of the world.

Fifth Seal continues the journey of Mary and Yosef as they begin their journey to Bethlehem. With danger swirling around them, will they be able to keep themselves – and those they love – safe? Thoene's fifth book of the A.D. Chronicles series was surprisingly disappointing. I love the Nativity story, and I was excited for this book. However, my enthusiasm dimmed with the completion of Fourth Dawn. It seems good things come in threes – the first three books of the series were excellent, yet the next three seem to pale in comparison. The writing feels forced, the plot stretched out (three books to tell the story of Christ's birth is a little much), and there is little new material or challenges. It's worth breezing through to get on with the series, but it's not one of the Thoene's better works.
