Unsung heroes and murderous villains, hidden forever in ancient shadows, now leap to life - blazing onto the pages of revelation.
Gideon, a lowly woodcutter, is blessed by an angel to be the savior of all Israel. He does not know why or how and shrinks from this dangerous mission. The commandment to conquer the Midian Empire as one man seems all but impossible. But Gideon’s confidence grows as God guides his every step until he stands fearless and faithfully fulfills his destiny as, “A mighty man of valor.” The fierce warriors, burning towers, and devastated cities contained in Gideon’s Journey are but silver threads that weave into a sweeping tapestry of ancient intrigue. Running through and stitching together the entire saga is The Lord of the Covenant, or The Baal-Berith, also known as Gideon’s mysterious Ephod of Gold. The Canaanite age of iron finds a simple woodsman lost in the forest of fear and doubt; challenging Ba’al, the Amorite god, to rescue his one true love, and grows into a mighty man of valor conquering the Midian Empire.

The Bible to him is like reading the Daily News as it is vivid and alive and provides deep wells of knowledge and practical applications of simple understandings.
Moreover, this is where the grist from this novel finds common ground through his endless rounds of scripture study. For the laborer is worthy of his hire and the eyes of his understanding has been opened by a loving God.
Lest we forget, a thousand years hence - the anthropologists will conclude that our society communed with an all-knowing oracle named Google.
