"Prague Counterpoint" by Bodie Thoene

Hope in a lost world.
Hope in a lost world.

Prague Counterpoint is the second novel in the riveting Zion Chronicles by Bodie Thoene. It continues the story of Elisa Linder, John Murphy and Thomas von Kleistmann as they continue their attempts to stop the oncoming Nazi invasions and the slaughter of “inferior” humans. The base of this novel revolves around Elisa discovering her true calling in the fight against the Nazi's when she discovers the plight of two little boys. John Murphy continues to chase the truth and even finds himself somewhere a little more familiar. Thomas continues his fight with the Greater Reich from inside the government itself and Elisa discovers a new ally where she thought them least likely to be found.

An interesting aspect of Prague Counterpoint is the new perspective offered through two new characters and their flight from the Nazi thugs. The two boys, identical twins, have been hiding from the Nazi's since their birth due to a defect in one of the brothers at birth. The plight of these twins reveals an even harsher image of the hate that can be inspired in the hearts of man.

Prague Counterpoint allows readers to glimpse a broken, almost apocalyptic, world. However, instead of experiencing these historic events with cold realism, readers are given reasons of hope even through the hard times. God plays a crucial role in shaping the decisions and lives of most of the characters and when all other forms of hope leave, readers discover the continuing grace of God and His persevering presence in the lives of those who put their faith in Him.
