Publisher's Summary

His courage covered his brother's fear. His sacrifices atoned for the peoples sin. His voice carried the words of God. Moses parted the red sea. But in his shadow stood a man who symbolizes forever our great High Priest: Aaron.

Bible based, enjoyable and thought provoking.

The author does a great job of setting the scene and providing additional background information to justify and perhaps explain the choices of the character. The listener is left to feel they know the character so well they can almost understand and predict the characters decisions. Although fictional to a fashion it's obvious the writer has explored the culture and history of the era.
The objective of the book is not to teach doctrine but nonetheless its insightful and thought provoking nature leaves the reader with glimpses containing some great lessons and truths pertaining to the Old Testament.

The narrator does well conveying many different voices and is constant in the tone and pitch presented. Perhaps not as skilled as some of the great narrators but takes little away from the book. The narration was easy to listen too and held my attention but may be subject to individual taste.

Thoroughly enjoyed. A worthwhile book.

This book opened up such a greater understanding.

This is a book I would recommend to anyone wanting greater understanding of the old testament. The Father's love and why we need Jesus sacrifice. we to are just like Moses Aaron and the Israelite slaves coming out of Egypt.

Pointing to the perfect High Priest

The story of a man. A man who is called by God, and set aside. He is molded into a more humble person as he is faced with challenges that he cannot fulfill to perfection. He fails, repents, regrets and obeys as good as he can. He is ordained as high priest, and set apart, sanctified. Yet, he is constantly reminded of his shortcomings, and at the end of his long life he pleads for God to send a perfect High Priest, a Saviour who can bring the perfect sacrifice. Again, Francine Rivers has written, from a wonderfully personal angle, of the spiritual struggle that a person is faced with in his life on this earth. Pointing to the Saviour who sees our struggle and forgives our trespasses, making us His children as we trust in Him.

I love Francine Rivers but...

This story feels a little flat, and the character development a little too modern and predictable. I've always loved the way Rivers brings historical details and context into her stories, but I didn't see it much here. It felt more like a modern take on an ancient story. The worst part however is the narration. The narrator has this constant dramatic tone that is just too much. At times, it's a whispery drama where it does not need to be. His style is just over the top drama as if every scene is an edge-of-your-seat, pay attention, something-awesome-is-happening play. It's tiresome and it skews the story. I may return this book and get the print version to see if I like it better reading it myself.

Thought provoking

This was a very intriguing book and very thought-provoking. it seems as though things have not changed much but thankfully we have Jesus Christ!

I'm glad I persisted

I found this book a little slow but I persisted and am glad I did. It follows the Bible events closely bringing alive the realities of the exodus from Egypt, and the wilderness wanderings. The lessons to be learnt from these events stood out to me as the storyline progressed. I will be listening to this book again.
