But I have to tell you this, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. I did! It brought the Old Testament stories to life, helping me to understand the real threat of bandits, understanding the rivalries between peoples, and the need to trust God. Realistic battle scenes mixed with vulnerability not only of a physical nature but also of an emotional ones.
I had a hard time in some areas of the book with the severity of Caleb's reactions to discipline within the Israelite camp, but I understand how he came to the way of being based on the life that was described in the book.
Wow... interesting life Caleb led. And through the life and beliefs of the Egyptian people came to life. Seeing the hardness of Pharoah's heart. How the plagues hit into the very hearts and lives of the people and their religious beliefs.
God's hand in play even when he didn't know it.
Strength and discipline, and later a learned dependance on God.
God's hand firmly on Caleb's life.
Interesting book, and yeah, you should read it if you get a chance. :)
