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 Badrayan 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?
As usual Moore’s writing sucked me right in to this time period and the lives of the people in this story. Moses’ world came to life for me like it never has before, even in THE TEN COMMANDMENTS. Of course I can’t help but compare the two scripture retellings in my mind I love them both. Books always shed more light because we can hear the character’s thoughts. Having the two stories to compare helps me try to sort out fact from fiction. I always learn so much about any culture that I read about in Moore’s books. Her research and understanding is amazing. I love the characters too. They are dear to my heart. I am so glad this series will continue so that I can follow their story even further.
