Some Of The Best Historical Fiction I Have Ever Read

Until My Name is Known

My husband and I, and even my friends and I have often imagined what it was like living through the stories we read from Scripture. We can almost visualize how things happened and how people must have felt during those times. We call this "sanctified imagination". Of course we can't know exactly how people felt, or what went on in their head, or even how it really looked, but people are people and we think very much the way the very real people of the Bible did.

Sonya Contreras has written a book that can really put you in the story of Moses and the Jews leaving Egypt. This biblical fiction story is accurate in the events that took place, as in biblically sound, but focuses on specific characters who went through those amazing times by telling you their story. She draws you in quickly with her knowledge of history and life in those times, painting a visual image in your mind. As you read on, you feel as though you are a part of the story and living it with the people. It's fantastic historical fiction!

About the book:
The Exodus of the Jews from Egypt is a love story between God and His people. God woos His people to Himself as He prepares them to leave. Before leaving, God must fight Pharaoh for possession of His people. See how God changes all people: some for the better, others not. None stay the same. How will He change you? Can you trust a God Who destroyed a nation before your eyes? Would you want Him as your Friend?

See God free His people from Egypt’s bonds before a watching world. Trace His Finger in the lives He touches. The time: 2450 BC. The Place: Old Kingdom of Egypt where Pharaoh is god. His people worship him. Israel’s God arrives. He challenges Pharaoh. His power touches all people. They must change. Some do not concede. They suffer. Others yield. They find freedom.

Until My Name Is Known brings all to see the one true God. Read it to see Him. Today’s historians and archaeologists puzzle over the fall of the Old Kingdom of Egypt, But the world at that time heard of God. The world knew that He is the Lord. His Name was proclaimed in all the earth.
