{More about Until My Name is Known}

Until My Name is Known (Bull Head Press, July 2015)
The Exodus of the Jews from Egypt is a love story between God and His people. God woos His people to Himself as He prepares them to leave. Before leaving, God must fight Pharaoh for possession of His people. See how God changes all people: some for the better, others not. None stay the same. How will He change you? Can you trust a God Who destroyed a nation before your eyes? Would you want Him as your Friend?
See God free His people from Egypt’s bonds before a watching world. Trace His Finger in the lives He touches. The time: 2450 BC. The Place: Old Kingdom of Egypt where Pharaoh is god. His people worship him. Israel’s God arrives. He challenges Pharaoh. His power touches all people. They must change. Some do not concede. They suffer. Others yield. They find freedom.
Until My Name Is Known brings all to see the one true God. Read it to see Him. Today’s historians and archaeologists puzzle over the fall of the Old Kingdom of Egypt, But the world at that time heard of God. The world knew that He is the Lord. His Name was proclaimed in all the earth.

My Thoughts:

I am a huge biblical fiction fan, so when I was asked to review this book I said yes without hesitation.
This is a different take on Moses, Sonya doesn't start at the beginning of his life where he is found floating in the basket of the Nile river, she begins her story after he's killed the Egyptian and has run from Egypt. I've studied Exodus quite a bit as a Bible quizzer as a child and teen, and then I coached quizzing of Exodus as an adult. I found the book interesting like a companion to the book of Exodus as a commentary. Her research is extensive considering the bibliography that she includes at the end of the book. I did enjoy it, I wish it had pulled me in to the point that I didn't want to put it down.
Recommended!
