KEEPERS OF THE COVENANT Kindle Giveaway and Live Author Chat with Lynn Austin!

  Lynn Austin's newest book in The Restoration Chronicle series is out!  Keepers of the Covenant is the second book in the series.  Read below to find out about this exciting new book, a giveaway and a live author chat!  You can also read my review of the first book in this series, Return to Me, here

About the book: 

The Old Testament Comes to Thrilling Life in the Latest from Lynn Austin
In one life-changing moment, the lives of the Jewish exiles in Babylon are thrown into confusion and despair when a decree arrives from the king's palace in Susa. It calls for the annihilation of every Jewish man, woman, and child throughout the empire on the thirteenth day of Adar, in less than one year. Ezra, a quiet Jewish scholar and teacher, is suddenly called upon to lead the community as they seek God for a reason for this catastrophe. When a second decree arrives, authorizing them to fight back, Ezra is thrust into the role of military leader as they defend themselves against their enemies.
When the battles come to an end, Ezra's brother Jude is dead and Ezra is required by the Law he so diligently studies to marry Jude's widow, Devorah, and provide an heir. Fatherhood changes Ezra, and he asks God to make a way for him and the other exiles to leave Babylon for good and return to Jerusalem. His prayers are answered and the exiles move to Judea to revitalize worship at the temple---but the fight to keep God's Law is never easy. As more and more of his community are tempted, a new battle emerges . . . this one for the survival of God's covenant and the souls of His chosen faithful.

My Review:
Lynn Austin is definitely one of my favorite author.  I was so excited to get the second book of this series since the first one was phenomenal!  This second book did not disappoint.  I love how her novels push me to want to read the actual biblical account of the story after finishing her books.  This continuation of the story of Israel in Babylon brought out many situations I hadn't thought through before.  When reading through the story of Esther, I always thought about Esther and her plight, but never really considered all that the Israelites would of felt facing the edict of their impending death from the King.  It's brought about a different perspective for me to consider while reading about God's chosen people.  The author has done a wonderful job breathing life into the characters of the story.  Her writing draws you into the story and takes you on a journey that will make a lasting impact on how you'll view the Scriptures dealing with the Jew's exile.  I highly suggest you pick up this series.  It's one that you'll definitely want to add to your library!  If you would like to read other reviews about this book, click here to head over to the blog tour.
