Exodus, the newly released volume 3 of The Moses Chronicles is another captivating story filled with stress, fear, and faith. I’ve really enjoyed reading this series and Exodus was as compelling as the previous two books in series. Author H. B. Moore does a stellar job bringing this Bible story to life in an intense, believable way.
I like how H. B. Moore created strong, vulnerable and authentic characters in this series. She captured well the emotional struggle that Moses must have felt as Pharaoh repeatedly gave his word that the Israelite slaves could leave and then changed his mind. I like how some of the plagues made everyone suffer, Hebrews as well as Egyptians and how that tested the faith of the Hebrews in their new prophet. I like how Moses’ Egyptian mother Bithiah is part of the story and how she brings an Egyptian perspective to everything that happens leading up to the Exodus.
Overall, Exodus is a compelling story that brings the story of Moses to a whole new, realistic level. Nicely done. Heather B. Moore gave me a complimentary copy of Exodus for my candid review.
Deliverance, the newly released volume 2 of The Moses Chronicles is the enthralling sequel to volume 1 Bondage. In Deliverance, author H. B. Moore follows Moses into the wilderness as he runs from the Egyptians, fearful of being pursued after killing an Egyptian taskmaster for beating a Hebrew slave. With the knowledge of his birth newly revealed by his Egyptian mother, Moses runs into the wilderness to run away and at the same time to find out who he really is.
With a seemingly random string of fortunate events, Moses finds himself in Midian welcomed by Jethro’s large family. While working to ingratiate himself into this new tribe, Moses feels drawn to Zipporah, Jethro’s intriguing and still single daughter.
With creatively and authenticity, H. B. Moore recreates the story of how Moses found his wife and learned to trust the true and living God of the Hebrews. Amid touching everyday activities, and heart-stopping plot twists, we follow the story that prepared Moses to accept God’s call to return to Egypt to deliver the Hebrews from bondage.
Deliverance is the strong, captivating story that draws us into the everyday struggles of an ordinary man that God is preparing for extraordinary tasks. Heather B. Moore gave me a complimentary copy of The Moses Chronicles: Deliverance by H. B. Moore for my candid review.
