Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We ordered this product through Amazon, but it was provided by buy.com. The lamp worked fine when it arrived, but began to fail in fewer than six months of regular usage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great historical fiction, September 25, 2008
This book presents biblical history in a completely new way! It reads like a fantasy-adventure novel, but is packed with details about the Bronze Age and what life was like for people living then. Huge battles, larger-than-life heroes, near-mythic creatures, a race of giants, and the dark reality of Canaanite magic all come to life in a dramatic way. (You will love the battle against the aurochs!) It starts a little bit slow, but fairly quickly draws you into the worlds of the 12-year old boy Samuel and the warrior-prince Manoah of the tribe of Dan. Vivid descriptions of ancient Isrealite worship and of the people living during this time will have you turning to your Bible again and again saying "I never knew that..."

The story has a great human element as well, portraying the anguish of a barren woman and her husband during a time when having children was the most important thing for every couple. It also helped me realize how Samuel must have been affected by being given up by his mother when he was only 3 years old, and growing up in a place ruled over by corrupt priests.

The appendices are great reading in and of themselves, giving explanations for some of the more controversial decisions the author has made and showing the incredible amount of research he has done to make this story realistic and historically accurate. Probably the most interesting is the essay that shows that King David and his life are the real basis for the stories of King Arthur and his knights of the round table.

I highly recommend this book, and I eagerly await the sequel.
