Experience the life of Moses as never before, following his journey from fugitive of Egypt to prophet of God. In this exhilarating follow-up to H.B. Moore’s biblical drama The Moses Chronicles: Bondage, the account of Moses’s flight from Egypt continues. Moses’s life as he knew it is over. He has chosen to stand for his beliefs at the cost of being cast out of his royal home and family. He is free of the wickedness of Egypt, but peace is not to be found, for Moses is as much an aimless wanderer as those in the nomadic tribe he encounters in the wilderness. Exhausted by long weeks of travel, he nevertheless jumps to action when he observes a group of young women accosted by a band of Bedrayan men at a communal well. These lovely daughters of Jethro are grateful for his help, and their Midianite tribe welcomes Moses with open arms. As he learns the ways of the Midianites, his kinship with Jethro grows—as does his admiration of one of Jethro’s daughters, Zipporah. But when Moses suddenly receives a burning call to free the very people he has long oppressed, will he have the courage to return to the land from which he has been exiled?
Another compelling read from a talented author. DELIVERANCE picks up right where BONDAGE ends. Every turn of the page brings a new adventure, full of suspense and a great amount of action. The story is constantly moving and the pages turned fast as I was eagerly awaiting what would be next for Moses. The conflicts with the other tribes were intense and suspenseful. This is a very exciting story full of action. I loved the point of view switches between Moses and Zipporah. I enjoyed seeing what each character thought in certain situations. Moses's character leapt off the pages, as well as Zipporah's. I loved how she was her own woman, and knew what she wanted. Heather also took great care in writing the supporting characters too. I loved Jethro, Zipproah's father. He was a wonderful man full of compassion and trust. This book really got my thinking about who Moses really was and what an incredible man he was. Full of faith and strength. I loved his devotion to his new life in the desert, and how he followed the Lord to deliver his people. I am anxiously awaiting the last book in the series.
5 out of 5 stars.
