Bethlehem’s Brothers is a work of fiction in the action and historical genres and was penned by author Ronald Hera. The first novel in the Brothers Series, this compelling tale is set during biblical times in the earliest era of Christianity. The story centers around the titular brothers as they grow up in a time of deep unrest, battling conflict from an early age and struggling to understand where the solution to peace may come from. When the brothers meet a figure who offers that solution, they must decide whether to trust this new and enigmatic stranger and, in turn, challenge everything about the society they know in the process.
Author Ronald Hera brings a mysterious time in history to life through atmospheric writing and extensive research. It’s clear even from the opening pages that Hera has done this investigative work, bringing little details and big picture cinema descriptions together to fully flesh out the scenes in which his actors take their places. Whether you’re a Christian or not, the biblical setting comes to life and is fully explained, whilst the brothers weave in and out of its complexities and discover the verge of a new social, cultural and religious revolution. One of the things I liked the most about this tale was the fact that it felt relatable to modern-day humanity because the brothers face the same crises and dangers that many developing countries still do now. Overall, Bethlehem’s Brothers is a highly compelling and recommended read for one and all.
