This marvel of a book is the great saga of the Jewish people ever since the beginning of civilization - describing how the nation that produced Jesus Christ has been following in His footsteps ever since - sacrificing itself over and over again just like Agnus Dei - the Lamb of God.
Michener's style is versatile - he composes several plots in the most intricate ways - combining the search of several archeologists who unearth layer beyond layer of one single spot upon the globe, specifically in the Holy Land, with the many stories of its ancient roots, meanwhile telling the magnificent historic epic of the whole most-special nation of Israel, reviving the accounts of the very Bible. The flowing writing simply makes you feel as if you yourself were there in person,- experiencing for the first time the presence of God around you - through each flower and petal and bird - not as a stone-statuette, but in spirit - invisible, and so, invincible - almighty - ever stronger... yet ever more compassionate...
This author has done wonders using this same unique style describing the history of South Africa, Poland and other countries,
and this very book was in its time a worldwide best-seller - one of the most popular books ever. And for good reasons...
It's simply a Must!!
You just have to start reading, and you'll be led into the unfathomable depths of the birth of the entire humanity, as well as of your own soul, reminded of everything moral you've ever imbibed - at least as a child - at school, in church, and at home.
In short,- most warmly recommended!!!
I was hoping to get a clearer overview of the history of Israel. Perhaps it;s there and I am just dense.
