Book Summary:

Book 3 in The Moses Chronicles series.

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.

Cheryls review
I enjoyed reading about Moses, Miriam, and other family members in this historical fiction presentation. The characters came to life for me. This book dwelt more on the plagues and exodus as recorded in the Bible than on the personal stories of the characters involved. It also dealt with Bithiah, Moses’ Egyptian mom’s story. I was surprised to find her name and geology listed in the book of Chronicles when I was looking for references to her her in the Bible. I love that reading this series sends me back to the Bible to verify facts and help me find details that I had either forgotten or never found before. With those details in mind, I can then imagine what it might have been like for the people of that time. I gained a greater appreciation for how much the plagues devastated the Egyptians. I also came to see the Hebrews more clearly. I really appreciate the understanding I have gained. I love Moore’s devotion to the truth and her insights into these people.
