about the book....

Caleb and Joshua Roar to Life in this High-Impact Old Testament Saga

Two men were brave enough to tell the truth about what awaited the Hebrews in Canaan. This is their story. From the slave pits of Egypt to the efforts of an eighty-five-year-old Caleb as he drives out the last of the giants, Shadow of the Mountain is a vivid portrait of two of God's chosen champions, and a meditation on masculine mentorship and the challenges and blessings of growing older.

For the sake of his new God and his loyalty to his friend Joshua, Caleb will not spend his twilight years resting, but taking the battle to the enemies of God's people until his dying breath. From his early days as a mercenary for Pharaoh in Egypt watching the Hebrews suffer under the yoke of slavery, all the way through a desperate fight with giants in the dark forests of the hill country, this is a story filled with epic battles, gritty intensity, and supernatural events that made Graham's Lion of War series a hit. Shadow of the Mountain is sure to ignite a love for the Old Testament in popular culture.

my review....

Whoa! Men, this is the series that you have been waiting for! (And women, don't get me wrong - you'll enjoy this one too).

Cliff Graham has written an absolutely spellbinding read in "Shadow of the Mountain: Exodus". I have never really considered what the life of Caleb was like, apart from what is depicted in the Bible. But Graham's fictionalized account of Caleb's life has given me a whole new appreciation for this Biblical hero, one he expertly brings to life with historical details and settings that make for fascinating reading. Within the first couple of chapters, the action simply explodes onto the pages and doesn't stop until the end. Now, some readers may find themselves a little uncomfortable with some of the violence depicted here. But the scenes simply ring true to the times Caleb was living in, a time when you had to fight to survive within Egypt, a time of living through the horrible ten-plagues when Pharaoh wouldn't let the Israelites go, a time when God called on Israel to conquer the Promised Land he was giving to them. I became so caught up in this story, that I couldn't put it down (and that's not something I often say about Biblical fiction). While the author has taken much poetic license with this story and obviously added things that are not within the Bible, the themes and values ring
true and faithful to the scriptures. And I can promise you that you will never think of Caleb the same way after you turn the final page of this story, but will be encouraged by the example that he sets for men to live their lives with courage and completely dedicated to God. May all men be mighty in worship and mighty in service to God!

I simply couldn't get enough of this intense, well-written book. Men, do yourselves a favour - if you only read one book this summer, let it be this one. But no matter your gender, you will turn the last page of this story with a new appreciation for the Old Testament and a hunger to revisit the scriptures for yourselves.

5 out of 5 stars.
