Bestselling Authors Bodie & Brock Thoene Sign Four-Book Deal With Zondervan




Zondervan announced it signed award-winning and bestselling authors Bodie and Brock Thoene to a four-book contract with the first title, Beyond the Farthest Star, to release December 2011.

Beyond the Farthest Star is a novel based on the major motion picture screenplay by Andrew Librizzi with the film (Pathlight Entertainment) anticipated to release nationwide in time for the holidays. The emotionally compelling novel tells the tale of a father desperate to reconnect with his daughter and regain the love of his wife. In it, he discovers that reconciliation and trust begin, not with words, but with the revelation of the heart.

“Beyond the Farthest Star is a powerful story with gripping characters and fascinating twists and turns,” said Bodie and Brock Thoene. “We are excited and proud to be partnering with the dynamic Zondervan publishing team as this film and novel come to life.”

After the release of Beyond the Farthest Star, the Thoenes will begin their most powerful and climactic writing project ever with a new historical fiction series titled “A.D. Scrolls.” The series begins with the first book, releasing in October 2012, which focuses on those who followed Jesus into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday and continues on with a new release each year which will take readers through the Last Supper, the Crucifixion, Resurrection and on into the first tumultuous days of the Church.

“Bodie and Brock Thoene are a wonderful addition to the Zondervan family of fiction,  quo; said Sue Brower, executive editor for Zondervan. “I have wanted to work with these legends in Christian fiction for a long time and am thrilled that the opportunity has finally come.”

Bodie and Brock Thoene have written more than 65 works of historical fiction with more than 25 million of these bestselling novels in print. They have won eight ECPA Gold Medallion Awards affirming what millions of readers have already discovered—the Thoenes are not only master stylists but experts at capturing readers’ minds and hearts.

  1. I have read this incredible book and was mesmerized by both the action and the way my emotions were pulled along for the ride. Shattered lives are buried beneath lies and people who are leading lives of quiet desperation are afraid to love or to be loved by others. The impact of our words and actions upon the lives of others, and the realization of what truly is important are touched on in an unforgettable manner. I give it 5 stars!

    Not only have the Thoene’s skillfully portrayed a broken family being mended together, but there is more to come! Beyond The Farthest Star is also a film being released in a few weeks. The Thoene’s based their novel from a powerful screenplay by Andrew Librizzi, and I am eagerly anticipating watching these characters come to life onscreen. It is sure to be an amazing film!

  2. Hey Cindy,
    So great to hear from you. Man your review of their book makes me want to read it so bad, and the movie sounds like its going to be awesome too. So excited about the Thoene’s ministry resonating so powerfully.

    • Please check out more on the upcoming film at I believe it will reach out to many broken and scarred people. I really do not work for them…just a very enthused fan! 🙂 However, I have also gotten to know some of the people involved and their commitment to sharing the love of Jesus to others is very real.

      Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!! May God bless you!!!
