Waiting On:
Title: Exodus
Author: Cliff Graham
Publisher: Bethany House
Publication Date: May 5th, 2015

Synopsis:
From GoodReads
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.
Why I'm Waiting:
 Yes! A new series. I discovered Cliff Graham's Lion of War Series about a year and a half ago. The writing is superb and it has a fantastic realism to it. There is a grittiness to the story and flaws to the characters. These characters felt like they were alive in front of me. I love that in a story. I can't wait to see what this series brings. He has a talent to bring these Biblical stories back to life and helps you immerse yourself in them and he doesn't take away from the Bible in the slightest. The stories make you want to research more about the people.

What are you waiting on this week?

This one looks interesting! I'm not sure I'm ready to commit to a series, but at least I'd be getting in at the beginning instead of playing 'catch-up' so I may take a closer look at this one. Hope you enjoy it.
Here's my WoW!
