Let my people go ...
A plea has been made in behalf of the children of Israel. Now comes the epic climax years in the making—the final showdown between two of the most powerful men in history—one fueled by pride, the other guided by the world of God. Moses has received an extraordinary call from the Lord: he is to lead the exodus of the Hebrew people out of Egypt, ending generations of bondage. And he must return to the land of his birth to boldly petition a man he does not want to challenge ... or lose to: Ramses—pharaoh of Egypt. Ramses, harboring years of feeling betrayed by his best friend, is determined to stop Moses no matter the cost. He will not yield, even as a dark veil of plaques and pestilence descends over the land of Egypt.
What follows is a powerful chronicle of the struggles of the children of Israel as they traverse uncharted territory, both physically and spiritually. Amid the horrific catastrophes devastating their land and through the dramatic evens that follow, the Hebrews must face their fears and their faltering faith. For even in the darkest of times, there are manifestations of the Lord's constant care to inspire their hope for a bright future.
This series has so far been great! I didn't know how book two and three could be as good as book one, but both have been just as good or even better. If you read my reviews you know I love books written by H.B. Moore (Heather B. Moore), just alone for the fact that she is an amazing writer. She writes realistic historical characters that are brought to life in a big way. Her research is clearly shown in her novels as the setting and the background shine in the story. You feel like you are there and can see and smell everything.
In this third book Moses is trying to set his people free with his brother, Aaron's help. I loved getting to know this character, but the story is told from many people's viewpoint. This added so much more to the story being able to see things from the perspective of the Egyptian Pharaoh Rameses, Moses, and his wife. I am thoroughly enjoying seeing this Bible story brought to life. It was especially intriguing to see how H.B. Moore wrote about the plagues and pestilence which came to the Egyptian people, even though I've read about them for years, this added to the depth of drama and excitement in the story.
If you are looking for a great series to read, with book four still to come, The Moses Chronicles is one I highly recommend. This book is read quickly, because frankly you'll not want to put down this fast paced novel.
