Even though all of that is so true, I was wary to read "Sons of Encouragement." That's because I love reading about women... I can relate to them so much more than men, naturally! But I wound up at the library hungry for something new from Francine Rivers or George MacDonald (my favorite non-modern author). All they had to choose from was "Sons of Encouragement" or... "Sons of Encouragement." So, I chose.
And my low expectations were so off! The fact that the main characters of these books are men didn't do anything to diminish my enjoyment of these stories. They drew me back to the beginning of God's word and to the Stories of these 5 men who really were just regular men but who were chosen by God for something great. I love Miss River's books because they show you so clearly God's plan, His goodness, His sovereignty... all in a new way that will make God and the people whose lives we see in the pages of the bible so much more real to you. "Sons of Encouragement" includes 5 novellas that were originally published as separate books. Here, you have them all together which is much more convenient. All of their stories come together to make one marvelous story.
The book includes the stories of Aaron, Caleb, Jonathan, Amos, and Silas. None of these men are as well-known as the ones they encouraged (Moses, Joshua, David, Israel, and Paul) and we don't hear as much about them as others. Each of these stories remain as true to the bible as possible, and the author combines accurate history and culture with her own imagination to bring their stories alive and touch your heart.
No matter what religion you are, you learn from opening the Bible about our history and how to live a good, Godly life. These books will help motivate you in a way that something else might not have.
#1 Aaron (The Priest) Aaron the brother of Moses was the chief priest and who helped Moses lead God's chosen people from bondage to safety and away from the hands of Pharoah. Aaron heard God's voice but was despised by the people who thought him to be a traitor.
#2 Caleb (The Warrior) Caleb rallied around Joshua, increasing his faith and confidence to lead the people after the death of Moses. Caleb's leadership abilities did not go unnoticed.
#3 Saul (The Prince) Honor is important to him and he is concerned with pleasing of his men, however in the midst of battle one cannot discredit their enemies. Sauls son Jonathan sees much and he is God fearing. He (Jonathan) joins forces with David. After David's marriage to Michal Saul becomes violent.
#4 Amos (The Prophet) Amos was a shepherd carer of lambs and goats who felt cheated by the temple. Joram the temple overseer was interested in amassing great wealth through wool. God helped Amos and showed him a vision of what is to come. Amos kept his faith strong but he was bullied by others who were oblivious of what was to come.
#5 Silas (The Scribe) Secretary to Peter, Silas could write as well as speak both Hebrew and Greek fluently. He spoke of being present when Jesus taught and was eyewitness to the crucifixion.
Watching these men "come alive" through the writing of Ms. Rivers was quite enjoyable as I was transported to another time period. My favorites were Amos and Saul. I recommend this series to others as these are novellas which can each be read in a sitting.
