In this third book, Moses is trying to set his people free with his brother, Aaron's help. I loved getting to know this character, but the story is told from many people's viewpoint. This added so much more to the story being able to see things from the perspective of the Egyptian Pharaoh Rameses, Moses, and his wife. I am thoroughly enjoying seeing this Bible story brought to life. It was especially intriguing to see how H.B. Moore wrote about the plagues and pestilence which came to the Egyptian people, even though I've read about them for years, this added to the depth of drama and excitement in the story.
If you are looking for a great series to read, with book four still to come, The Moses Chronicles is one I highly recommend. This book is read quickly because frankly, you'll not want to put down this fast-paced novel.
Fans of this author's work will enjoy her last installment. Nothing is left out-the plagues, the parting of the Red Sea and the Lord's providing of manna and water for His chosen people as they sojourned through the desert. What might life have been like had we lived during this time? Would we have had the faith to rely on the Lord? Since the epic story of the most famous Bible prophet in history is too great to include in its entirety here, (the revelation of the Ten Commandments to Moses is given in the Epilogue) readers will be pleased with how Heather Moore chose to end her last book.
Once again there is nothing inappropriate or offensive. A fun story to get into. Everyone should read this series.
I loved Moses in this book. I love the way that you can tell just how much he cares for the children of Israel and also for the Lord and his commandments. I loved the way the story painted him as also caring for all of the people in Pharaoh's court that he would have grown up knowing and for Pharaoh himself, even though the Lord was chastising him.
I love in this series the way that Moses' wife becomes a real person and you can see the way that she sacrifices and cares for Moses and for their family. The same really with his mom and Miriam. It's hard for me sometimes to read the scriptures and realize just how many of the women are nameless and even if they have names, you really don't know them as a person. They're almost cardboard. I know this is a fictionalized account, but I love how it shows that Moses did have women in his life who were strong, caring and really just amazing women and they helped shape him into the amazing prophet that he came.
I liked the ending too. We all know what's going to happen, the Egyptian's eventually let Moses' people go, sort of, and then are killed in the Red Sea. I love how this scene was painted. It really came to life for me in a way that the jello Red Sea in The Ten Commandments never could.
I loved everything about this book and really the whole series. Can't wait for more books by Heather B Moore!
Exodus is a successful example of a story told from multiple perspectives; the author avoided repetition and the various points of view deepened my understanding of how both Egyptians and Hebrews were affected by the politics, plagues, and the Hebrews' exodus from Egypt, the only home they have ever known, into a dangerous wilderness. It was interesting to see Moses portrayed as an outsider and not initially perceived by the people of Israel as their leader, but as time progresses they accept his stewardship over them. Aaron's role as his brother and spokesperson is significant, and I didn't realize the hand he had in executing some of the miracles (time for a visit to my Old Testament...). I appreciated the continuing story of Moses' Egyptian mother Bithiah and Mered, one of the Hebrew scribes in the palace and the one who told her about the Lord, the God of Israel. The action doesn't stop after they leave Egypt, and it was a nice wrap-up to include some of the early experiences in the desert. I HIGHLY recommend this entire series!!! It is definitely one I will be reading again and keeping in my personal library.
