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.
- Gory and plotless
This book has a quick pace.
Mr Graham tries to portray Caleb as a man of great faith.
That was the good stuff. Over half of the book describes the imaginary life of Caleb as a pagan who served in the Egyptian Army. The story moves from one gruesome battle tale to another.
Not only was I disappointed in the lack of character development, but I was also disappointed in the lack of plot. If you liked this book, you really should read Homer's Iliad, a true classic of battle. In short, there was very little story, but 1 bloody scene to another.
