    Shepherd, Spy, Potter and the Star Namer is a fantastic book. Peggy Miracle Consolver is a new to me author, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I can't wait to read more from this author. This book tells the story of a teen boy, Keshub, and his Gibeonite family during the time of Moses. It is a well told story and the characters are well developed. I felt like I was an observer to the events portrayed in the book. This is a biblical fiction, but the author really did her research. I love how she encourages you to go back to your Bible and read the true story again for yourself. I have already recommended this book to friends.

    I received a copy of this book from the Publisher in exchange for my honest review which I have given.

    Whenever I encounter a new author, I experience feelings of excitement, wondering what I am going to read as well as how well the author weaves the tale. Peggy has experience as a woman dedicated to reading the Word of God, teaching Sunday School and has been on an archeological dig! Her dedication to being a student of the Word and having traveled overseas on a dig shows up in the depth and heart of this work of fiction. If you havent been a reader or student of the Old Testament, perhaps this novel will pique your interest. If you have read the Old Testament, some scenes will jump off the pages!

    The tale encompasses a time in ancient history prior to the Hebrews conquering the Promised Land. It is really interesting how the point of view is from those who had already lived in the land for generations. I got captivated, wondering if those settled on what God was giving the Hebrews saw them as a threat or as a possible ally. How influenced were the foreigners fears or views of the Jewish people coming by the millions towards their homes by those who sought to destroy them before they crossed into Canaan?

    Never before had I even thought how others viewed the Hebrews in the desert before conquering Gods enemies and settling into the land. I found this a fresh perspective, even though it is fictional. So remember to read the Word with attention toward the Gibeonites in Joshua 9 & 10, Genesis 10 to Psalm 114. The Bible will give you the truth as God revealed it and we can learn from that portion of Scripture. The novel isnt inspired, but a very good tale based on the actual events and persons in the passages mentioned above.

    It was fun to travel back in time via the authors imagination and story as I pictured it in my own mind. Yes, it involves a time we can relate to very little, but we sure can behold the God who is the same yesterday, today and forever. Grab your Bible and read the text mentioned above and then when you read the novel it will be even more astounding to you; I promise!

    Shepherd, Potter, Spy, and Star Namer by Peggy Miracle Consolver is the story of Gods grace to the Gibeonites. Relying upon the Bibles historical record, the world museums records, and archeological records the author has created a believable tale that explains events leading up to the encounter between the Hebrew people and the people of Gibeon. The greater part of the story focuses on a young shepherd boy, Keshub, who tends the family sheep and does chores relating to his familys pottery business. While he does these things, he dreams of faraway places and adventures such as those of the caravanners tales.

    His entertaining experiences in military training school, his challenging duties with the sheep herd (including defending them against a predator), everyday life with his family, and a unique opportunity to accompany a caravanner to mighty Jericho dim in comparison to his fathers assignment to spy on the Hebrew forces whose proximity imposes a major threat. The author realistically presents the story of these two ancient Bible peoples among others and gives insight into the day-to-day existence of that time.

    I recommend this book to those interested in learning more about this particular time in history. The author spins an interesting story about the boy, Keshub, and his life at that time. I received this book through TBCN in exchange for an honest review.

    When I first saw this book, I judged the book by the cover. Honestly, I kind of thought it was a Christmas story, maybe about the wise men. I am not sure I really read the description very well. It started out slowly for me, and I had a difficult time getting into the story. But, when I finally figured out the characters, and got into the story, it picked up a bit. The author has done an incredible job describing details and the time period she is trying to portray. From what I heard, she went to great extremes to accurately portray the Gibeonites in her book. I really enjoyed the story, but it was not a quick read for me. Actually the delay in reading it was quite providential, as I ended up reading it during the same time period as I was reading a few other middle eastern stories and so the similarities made things a little more clearer.

    Keshub, is a Gibeonite shepherd boy, during the time when the Isrealites have just finished up serving their forty years in the desert and are beginning to conquer the promised land. There are rumors of the Hebrews, people are afraid and making alliances with each other against them. However the Gibeonites are not ready to ally themselves with the surrounding countries. They hold off. Keshub's family are potters. Not only is he a shepherd and a potter, but his life is not for lack of adventure. And this book is written pretty much from his point of view.

    The book also includes other characters such as a boy in Joshua's family, Hosiah and the Hebrew people. And Dagan, son of an Amorite, a bully, who seems to always be doing something to make Keshub end up looking like a fool. You'll read an account and maybe get a glimpse into what it was like for the Israelites in the desert when Moses lifts up the serpent. And the crossing of the Jordan River and the fall of Jericho. What did the Gibeonites do in the end to save themselves from the Hebrew God's wrath? It is quite interesting. Is this God the same one their ancestors may have worshiped? Keshub gets a chance to see His ways upclose and personal.

    Maybe this book is just your style, or maybe it will take you a little bit to get into the story. Either way, give it a chance and I think you will learn something and enjoy it.

    I received this book from the author and bookfun.org in exchange for my honest opinion. I am not required to review it positively.

    Shepherds led dangerous lives each and every day. Between predators, wandering sheep, and the weather their lives were never boring. Keshub is a shepherd who feels like he has something to prove to his older brothers. One day travelers stopped by leaving a feeling for life beyond the valley for Keshub. This story shares tension, and excitement as he becomes a spy who keeps an eye on the Hebrews in the Jordan Valley. This story stays true to the Word as the treaty is made with Joshua by the Gibeonites.

    I love this view of Joshua's story with a young shepherd as an important player throughout the book.

    I would recommend this to anyone that enjoys historical, Biblical-based, stories.

    I was given this book by bookfun.org in exchange for my honest review.
