I just finished reading “Shadow of the Mountain”, by Cliff Graham. Great novel about the time of Exodus! “The greatest victories come when you never have the most powerful chariots or most numerous armies.

I really enjoy Lynn Austin’s novels. This one is a great read – set in the period just following the end of the Civil War. Great characters.
Here’s what the book says about itself: “Written in a riveting narrative style, The Harbinger opens with the appearance of a man burdened with a series of messages he has received in the form of nine seals. Each seal reveals a prophetic mystery concerning America and its future that takes you on an amazing journeyContinue reading “Books I Am Reading “The Harbinger”- Jonathan Cahn”
