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.


My Review: 5 Stars

These books need to be read in order, as they are chronological. The Bible isn't an easy book to understand sometimes and I often look at those prophets and think of them as almost legends. That combination makes it an intimidating book to tackle. This installment of the series follows the multiple requests of Moses to the pharaoh of Egypt, and his former best friend, Ramses, to release this people from bondage. Each time, the answer is "no," and plagues come over the land.

What I absolutely love about this book (and series) is the incredible way H.B. Moore has of bringing these characters to life and on my level. I'm learning more about how human they actually were--they had real thoughts, feelings, relationships, and struggles. I love that these great people are brought down to my level and these events are told in a way that I could visualize so well. I feel like I grasp things so much better now.

I can't imagine trying to approach a childhood friend with such a scary request, yet Moses does it over and over again. He's an inspiring man. I loved getting to know Bithiah (the woman who raised him) better, as she became a favorite of mine. These people had great trials and I loved understanding them and their reactions more intimately. H.B. Moore is a master at awakening these scriptural stories for a reader.

This is a great read for those who enjoy clean, historical fiction, especially relating to the Bible.
