Sonya Contreras in her new book “Until My Name is Known book coverUntil My Name is Known” Book One in the Tell of My Kingdom’s Glory series published by Bull Head Press brings us into the lives of The Israelites when they were in Egypt under Pharaoh.

From the back cover:   The Time: 2450 BC
The Place: Old Kingdom of Egypt
Pharaoh is god.
His people worship him.
Israel’s God arrives.
He challenges Pharaoh.
His power touches all people.
They must change.
Some don’t 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. Book One of the series Tell of My Kingdom’ s Glory

I think the best movie version of the Exodus story is Cecil B. DeMille’s “The Ten Commandments” starring Charlton Heston as Moses. I think, so far, the best book version is this one. Ms. Contreras has done a magnificent job of bringing Moses and Pharaoh to life and their clash of wills. She has also done the same with all the supporting characters giving them their own unique identities. The story begins after the incident with the burning bush and takes us all the way to the crossing of The Red Sea. Even though you know the events that are going to happen let me tell you this is one very exciting book. Ms. Contreras has done a great job with her research and her skill is evident in her presentation as a story rather than a message. “Until My Name is Known” is a wonderful, interesting story that will keep you flipping pages.  I recommend this book highly and I do look forward to the next book in this series from this highly talented author.

Tim LaHaye & Ed Hindon in their new book, “Target Israel book coverTarget Israel” published by Harvest House Publishers gives us Caught in the Crosshairs of the End Times.

From the back cover:   What lies ahead for Israel?

Does this mean the Last Days are almost here?

As the conflicts in the Middle East grow in intensity, we cannot help but wonder what lies ahead for the nation of Israel and whether any of it means we are drawing closer to the last days.

In their exciting new book Target Israel, prophecy experts Tim LaHaye and Ed Hindson explain why Israel is at the center of God’s prophetic plan for the future. As you carefully review the Scriptures with them, you’ll learn about…

  • the miracle of Israel’s modern-day existence
  • Israel’s unique purpose in the world
  • the ways in which Israel serves as a super sign of the end times
  • the coming alliance of nations that will attempt to annihilate Israel
  • Christ’s return to Jerusalem to rule the world

You’ll be inspired as you see how God will bring all His prophetic promises to pass, and be encouraged to share your faith with greater urgency in light of Christ’s second coming.

A fast-paced and remarkable survey of God’s regathering of the Jewish people to Israel in our age!

From Moses, who wrote the first five books of The Bible, to Paul, who wrote sixteen books of The New Testament, even to John who wrote Revelation these men have all been Jewish. The primary focus has been on God’s People and the nation of Israel. Tim LaHaye & Ed Hindson take a look at the absolute miracle of Israel’s existence and then take it even further to explain how Israel’s history was foretold throughout The Bible. The authors delve into Israel’s Divine Purpose and go into The Future Millennial Kingdom and The New Jerusalem. At the end they have included an Appendix “Frequently Asked Questions About Israel and the End Times. Tim LaHaye & Ed Hindson have given us an easy way to read and understand the role of the Jewish People and Israel in The Bible. I recommend this book highly.

Book Review: “The Magician’s Daughter” by Judith Janeway

Judith Janeway in her new book, “Magician's Daughter book coverThe Magician’s Daughter” Book One in the Valentine Hill Mystery series published by Poisoned Pen Press introduces us to Valentine Hill .

From the back cover:   Magician Valentine Hill always begins her act with:  “Reality is illusion. Illusion is reality, and nothing is what it seems.” Valentine herself is a case in point:  she is unquestionably real, but she has no legal existence. Her mother, a skilled con artist, has never revealed Valentine’s real age, birth place or her father’s identity–except to say that he was a magician.

No grifter herself, the scrupulous Valentine has spent years searching for her evasive mother, desperate to learn the basic facts of who she is. Literally, to get a life. Robbed of her stake in Vegas, she chases it to San Francisco where a series of odd events reunites her with her mother who, Valentine is sure, despite her respectable façade, is playing one of the city’s super rich. And Valentine quickly enters a world where truly nothing is what it seems. A socialite is a ruthless criminal, a car mechanic a psycho killer, and a cab driver a seductive gangster. After a friendly FBI agent is killed, Valentine forces herself into playing a grifter’s role to put the criminals –and her mother –away. Or at the very least, get what she wants from mom. Will her skills as a magician prove enough to help her maintain the illusion?

If you think about it for a moment being a magician is really no different from being a con artist. The magician deceives you by creating a false reality, so does a con artist. The real difference is that we want the magician to deceive while we do not want the con artist at all. Valentine is on a search to find out all her real birth information. For that she needs to find her mother. And she actually does. that is when she finds trouble. And a dead body. And it spirals out of control from there. The story hums along at a fast pace as Valentine is working to figure out just what is going on. Valentine is an amazing character. The pain she reveals about her past and the search for her birth details give real depth to her character. “The Magician’s Daughter” is loaded with twists and turns and red herrings that will leave you guessing all the while you are flipping pages to find out what happens next. Ms.  Janeway has provided us with a marvelous character in Valentine and I look forward to reading about her next adventure.
