See History Come Alive
Lions Of Judah by Kirby Lee Davis is a fabulous Christian historical novel. It is the second book in The Jonah Cycle series but can be read as a stand-alone. I recommend reading book one first for maximum enjoyment.
This book blends fact and fiction as its’ roots are in history. The masterful pen of Kirby Lee Davis brings the past to life. All the characters are fully rounded, springing to life for the reader.
The action is fast paced as we follow various skirmishes between good and evil. Uniquely we witness the scenes and hear the narration in the first person from the perspective of a lion. He stands apart from the humans as he witnesses their faith in action.
We see that life is always a battle between good and evil. We need to tie our colours to the mast and say a big yes to our Maker.
Though a beast of the field, the lion “saw the heart of the Maker” in the humans. When God lives in us, His light shines through us.
Despite our circumstances, we can know peace. “Conversing with the Maker renewed their peace.” As we lean into God, we will recognize His presence and receive His peace in our hearts.
Lions Of Judah helps bring Biblical times alive. It will aid you with your Bible reading as you view familiar scriptures with fresh eyes. I will leave you with my favourite quote:
“I must do what the Maker places upon my heart – not because He compels me, but because I love Him.”
