"Act of God" by Jill Ciment
Part horror story, part screwball comedy, Ciment’s brilliant suspense novel looks at what happens when our lives—so seemingly set and ordered yet so precariously balanced—break down in the wake of calamity. See more

Gilbert Morris' "Till Shiloh Comes" is one of the most memorable, brilliant novels I've ever read. The touching story of Joseph is brought to life in this page-turner, his troubles with his brothers and in Egypt wonderfully illustrated; I couldn't put it down. The realistic views and the accurate accounts make this a must-read.

I loved this book. I've read it so many times I've kind of worn out my copy. I had previously read Morris' novels on Noah and Jacob (and Joseph appears in the latter), and was quite eager to check out his portrayal of Joseph, one of my favourite Biblical heroes. I was not at all disappointed.

I loved how Morris showed Joseph's character development from a spoiled brat to a very seasoned vizier. It was really inspiring, and had me sympathising and cheering with him. I loved, too, how the author portrayed the chemistry between Joseph and Asenath, a factor so often overlooked (and even missed) in retellings of Joseph's life. It was most intriguing, how Asenath hated Joseph at first, then eventually came to love him. Er, I'd elaborate, but then, it would give too much of the plot away. Just read it to see what I'm talking about.

One caveat: there were a few things Morris could have developed on further, as it would have made the story even more interesting than it already was. Firstly, he had Asenath as Potiphar's wife's best friend (named Kesi in this book), and that would have created an opportunity for gripping intrigue and conflict between the two women after Asenath's marriage to Joseph. Yet, he (the author) simply had Kesi fade into the background. Quite disappointing, I think.
Also, in the preceding novel (The Gate of Heaven), Morris had Joseph and Dinah as best friends. Yet, here, the two have no contact, and there isn't even any mention of Dinah's Cretan husband, Demetrius. Again, the author could have brought back Demetrius and Dinah, to see how their brother rose to power in Egypt.

But overall, it was one of the best portrayals of Joseph's story I've come across. It was gripping and emotional, and kept me turning the pages. I hated to see it end. I hope to come across more books on Joseph like this in the future.

Of all the books in the series so far, I would have to say this one is the one so far that follows the original Biblical account the closest. While Morris added a lot of filler to the lives of Noah, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the first three novels, very little is added to this novel. The "technicolor dreamcoat" (I don't know what else to call it, so I'll give Broadway's name for it), the selling of Joseph to Potiphar, his seduction by Potiphar's wife and subsequent imprisonment, and his rise to power, can all be found here. Rather than being boring by being familiar, I believe this helps add to the book. There's not such a feeling of the author shaping the characters to fit a good/evil mold (like with Leah in the third book or Hagar in the second), instead staying truer to how they are found in the Bible. We are also given plausible reasons for Potiphar's wife turning to Joseph, and Joseph tricking his brothers.

Overall, I highly recommend this novel. It was my most favorite of the series since the first one with Noah.

Gilbert Morris brings the characters of the Old Testament to life. The ways of life of the Chosen People of God is detailed in their nomadic lifestyle. Their human weakness and never ending faith in God is the source of their strength.
Joseph in my mind from Sunday School seemed to be bullied by is older brothers. Morris portrays him a the spoiled favored son of Jacob a tattletale and trouble maker. Upon sale into slavery with God at his side, intelligence, morals and ability to understand dreams allowed him to rise to a high member of Egyptian hierarchy thus fulfilling his childhood dream.

Reading is my passion and I read all types of books. However; Gilbert Morris is becoming a go to author when looking for a good book. He hasn't let me down yet.

This was a truly fantastic fictional account of Joseph's life. It is amazing how you can often miss the smallest of details when you read the bible and then comes along an author who opens you eyes to a whole lot more. Joseph was not perfect. He was boastful, spoiled by a doting father, and a tattle tale to boot; but oh how amazing that God can use the worst of us to accomplish His will and divine purpose. It's truly great to know through lives like Joseph's that we all have an equal chance of doing something great for God in our life time despite our failures and shortcomings. We just have to surrender and let Him have His way. And He will, eventually, even if it means taking us through the fire. That's exactly what happened to Joseph. He left Caanan a brat strongly hated and despised by his brothers and entered the courts of Pharoah of Egypt a man full of wisdom and humility. A man fit to rule as second in command. Morris painted Joseph's story with bold strokes and vivid colors. A fantastic must read!!!!!!!

I'm so glad I was introduced to this series via Book Gorilla. True to the Biblical stories of Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and more, Gilbert Morris makes the characters and stories come alive. If I were still teaching religion classes, the Lions of Judah books would be required reading. While each book could be read as a stand-alone, reading the series in order was a treat. I am easily annoyed with Kindle books that contain multiple spelling and formatting errors. This series is remarkably "clean"--I may have found 2 typos in four books. I appreciated the quality of the Kindle edition, as well as the engaging way these books are written. If you've tried to read these Old Testament stories in the Bible, but "didn't get it," try this book! If you enjoy Bible fiction, you'll enjoy this entire series.
