Customer Review

on 9 December 2012
This is time travel at its best. It's one thing to write a book set in its own time and another to write a book now, set in another time. In the latter case, it is unusual to have a book which has the atmosphere and pace of that period. Here is a book where the author has managed to do so.....well, as far as we can be aware. The period is thoroughly researched and the voice authentic. We enter the world of the Bible, some 3000 years ago, where stories are told in a different way - slowly, carefully, step by step rather like the long journeys of Damariel, the priest around whom the changes in his world are taking place. We read about unfamilar religious customs and values but can detect traces, beginnings of the world we know. We see also the more recognisable human dilemmas and responses to those changes. Communications between communities is slow...the next village is days away. There is space and time to reflect. The atmosphere of that is captured....for those who can leave their twitters and instant lives to one side, and be patient.

A great companion reader for the GCSE RE curriculum.
