I love this! It's like the Lineage of Grace if you liked it. I highly recommend it.

This book encompasses the lives of 5 important men in the history of Christianity and helped to shape the time as it was then. #1 Aaron (The Priest) Aaron the brother of Moses was the chief priest and who helped Moses lead God's chosen people from bondage to safety and away from the hands of Pharoah. Aaron heard God's voice but was despised by the people who thought him to be a traitor. #2 Caleb (The Warrior) Caleb rallied around Joshua, increasing his faith and confidence to lead the people after the death of Moses. Caleb's leadership abilities did not go unnoticed. #3 Saul (The Prince) Honor is important to him and he is concerned with pleasing of his men, however in the midst of battle one cannot discredit their enemies. Sauls son Jonathan sees much and he is God fearing. He (Jonathan) joins forces with David. After David's marriage to Michal Saul becomes violent. #4 Amos (The Prophet) Amos was a shepherd carer of lambs and goats who felt cheated by the temple. Joram the temple overseer was interested in amassing great wealth through wool. God helped Amos and showed him a vision of what is to come. Amos kept his faith strong but he was bullied by others who were oblivious of what was to come. #5 Silas (The Scribe) Secretary to Peter, Silas could write as well as speak both Hebrew and Greek fluently. He spoke of being present when Jesus taught and was eyewitness to the crucifixion. Watching these men "come alive" through the writing of Ms. Rivers was quite enjoyable as I was transported to another time period. My favorites were Amos and Saul. I recommend this series to others as these are novellas which can each be read in a sitting.

I started reading this because I had read "The Lineage of Jesus Christ" 5 books written by Francine Rivers. This book did not disappoint me. I know the ending of the story and can hardly put it down.

If you enjoy historical biblical reading, this book is for you! It gets you in the minds of real people back in biblical times, but is so appropriate to our lives today.

You'll want to read the whole series if you haven't already. Francine writes about the men that sought the Lord and gave all they had for Him without recognition. Aaron, Caleb, Amos, Silas, and Jonathan, courageous, obedient men. They come to life in the books, they give you hope and encourage your faith.

I was inspired by this fabulous account of the mostly unknown heros of our faith.

Francine Rivers creates stories that make people in the Bible come alive all the while teaching us lessons with the use of scripture. I have read several of her books and my hope is that she keeps them coming!!
