In The Priest you'll meet Moses' brother Aaron, the first high priest of Israel. How will Aaron support Moses while he struggles with being satisfied with God's plan for his own life? Be inspired by how this seemingly secondary character plays a key role in supporting his leader and impacting the faith for eternity.
In her Lineage of Grace series, the award-winning Rivers successfully explored the lives of five biblical women. Here, in the first of her Sons of Encouragement series, she turns her attention to the life of Aaron with less stellar results. A jealous Aaron grows up in the shadow of his younger brother Moses. Yet when God calls him to assist Moses in leading the enslaved Israelites to freedom, Aaron finds love for his brother. In the wilderness, disastrous disobedience to God follows, and Aaron must come face-to-face with the knowledge of his own unworthiness and the sins of the Israelites. "It would take a bigger miracle than plagues and parting the Red Sea to change the hearts of these people," he realizes. When he's chosen as high priest, the daily sacrifices Aaron makes torment him, and he dreams of fire and blood. The first portion of the book feels flat, as if Rivers may have relied too heavily on the scriptural text. Her ability to weave sexual tension throughout her novels has been one of the talents of this former general market romance writer, but she fails to take advantage of several opportunities here. By the last third of the book, however, the narrative improves, as Rivers convincingly envisions the emotions and intrigue that surely permeated the biblical events. Rivers is a deservedly popular author, and her loyal fans will likely embrace her new series despite some shortcomings. (May) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Shirley Shoemaker4 Stars Out Of 5September 3, 2010Shirley ShoemakerPriest - volume 1. Really gave me a different point of view of Aaron since I always had a bad opinion when he led the building of the golden calf. As always with Francine Rivers it gets you thinking about the characters in the Bible that she writes about. It is well worth reading.

Rachael Tamayo5 Stars Out Of 5June 7, 2008Rachael TamayoThis is an amazing account of the life of Aaron, a wonderful retelling of the classic tale we all learned in Bible school as children with an amazing humanity attached. The entire series is great, it is inspiring to read these books and relearn these old stories, and take encouragement that these old testament heroes were actually real people with real problems, just like you and me.
Mary5 Stars Out Of 5October 28, 2004MaryI really loved this book. It gave such a great perspective on Aaron that I had never thought of. Even though Aaron sinned and had many flaws, God was able to use him in a mighty way.
