Great Book!

Great book as all of Francine's are, they make you think and ponder what the lives of our Christian forefathers and mothers lives were like. Can't wait till the next one is available.

Insightful Narration

I loved it! This book has given me a better understanding on Caleb's life and his impact to the Jewish community. The narrator was on point and had a so nicer tone to follow through!

Mostly enjoyed

I so enjoy Francine Rivers writing and her ability to use verses in each of her stories without preaching and shows the weakness and frustrations and fears we all deal with.
My area f aggravation with the Caleb story was nearing the end when he was older and becoming more frail and his daughter reached out to him and he was short, impatient and disrespectful...then his sons treated her the same as he did, and then he noticed. Very demeaning actions toward women and that bothers me

Adds life to the Biblical narrative

I felt the challenge personally, i In fact I have to shamefully admit i felt sympathy for Israel's unbelief, I Am Them, the choice to remain comfortable and safe seemed like it was the better option. Caleb's example showed that even in one's vulnerability one can still conquer, but we must first "inquire" of the Lord. what a great narrative.

Wonderful story

Francine Rivers brings bible characters to life in such a way you feel like you are right there with them. Adan Verner is a wonderful story teller in his narration of these books. Great job and thank you both.

Great!

Francine Rivers did a great job fleshing out scripture and gave us a much better understanding of details that we had discounted.

Excellent story close to the Bible

I really loved this story about Caleb. Ms. Rivers followed the scriptures but filled in the blanks in beautiful detail. The reader could have been just a little less dramatic or sing-songy but that did not significantly detract from the story. I have listened to other Biblical stories by Francine Rivers and will look for more. Thank you.
