The Warrior

By

“For the first time, the term was spoken without derision. Caleb. A new name for a new alliance. So be it.” This second novel in the Sons of Encouragement series focuses on Caleb, the man who could have been lost in the Exodus of the Jewish people from Egypt but who learns in stillness to listen to the voice of God. As in The Priest, the first novel in the series, the listening is difficult because Caleb’s mind is full of the Jewish people’s complaints and reactive advice, which usually lead to disaster. Instead Caleb learns to fear only the loss of faith. Inspiring to those seeking answers to life’s turmoil and inequities, as well as those whose faith is strong, The Warrior is a fine addition to understanding and contemplating the history of biblical men. A study guide is added at the end of the novel.
