"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 word 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 plagues 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 events 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 is the last installment of the Moses Chronicles. Finishing this series is bitter sweet. I know the story from the Bible, as do most people, but Heather has taken another historical event and expanded it making those past events come to life.
Moses is now reunited, not just with his biological family, but the mother who raised him. He has brought his own little family out of the wilderness to do the Lords work. Trials and tribulations run rampant effecting not just the Egyptians, but the Hebrews.
Moses needs to find his strength and courage to lead his people out of the grip of Ramses. Thank goodness for his brother Aaron and those close to him. Family is a powerful influence.
Read all the Moses Chronicles, follow the Prophet who led the children of Israel out of bondage and on the path to freedom.
