Hi, Ann. I’m the author of The Sandal Maker, a new novel about the public ministry of Jesus from a unique point of view, a little controversial at times. It’s a story that will take you on a fascinating journey in first century Galilee. A “must read” for those on a spiritual quest. You can read reviews at Amazon.com. I’m including here the publisher's notes. Let me know what you think.
In 70 A.D., a father and daughter risk their lives traveling through a war torn, Galilean countryside on a mission to reach Jerusalem, a fascinating journey that will change their destinies forever. Caleb, an elderly Jew, leaves the safety of his home in Cana on a mission to find a man he believes is in Jerusalem. Miriam, Caleb's only remaining child, accompanies him disguised as a boy. In the desolation of the war struck Galilean countryside, father and daughter risk their lives to journey south on the Jordan River trail. As they walk, Caleb intrigues Miriam with a captivating story of his youth that will change her future destiny. A story of a time forty years prior when he became a sandal maker in order to observe a man some called the Miracle Worker. Caleb secretly kept notes of the events he saw and heard as he followed the crowds. With his objective, skeptical point of view, he reveals the fascinating ministry of the one he called the "Master." Heart pounding perils and the threat of death endanger the two travelers, but nothing could foretell the fate awaiting them in Jerusalem!
From the Publisher
A. Michaelson's new novel, The Sandal Maker, takes the reader on a fascinating journey back to the year 70 A.D. in worn torn Palestine. The author creatively weaves two stories together, one in the present, the other in the past. Heartwarming, enlightening and tragic, The Sandal Maker paints a portrait of one man's life and his involvement in how the gospel came to be.

Hi Ann, thanks for your view on Beth Moore. "Believing God" is the first study/book I ever read of hers. She is a dynamic speaker! It had a slow start for me but I got into it near the middle. Not everything about it, but I loved her tour through the Hall of Faith (Hebrews 11 I think) and some of the other themes in there. It was a stretch of the mind! It was fun to do with a group. I might get some more of her stuff eventually, but I am slow with reading books these days! Amy
We haven't seen you much lately in the Women of Faith group. We have some awesome discussions going, be sure to chime in! We're also voting for our next group read... your ballot is due by June 8th, so take a look at your options and cast your vote.
Ann , my apology for not answering earlier. I was reading two books with that title. One was about the collection of Yiddish books and the other about a women in the french resistance. The first book also comes in an audio tape. I was amazed where the author discovered them and in what situations he came. The second book is also recommendable. I am sure that there were more of those brave and daring women, who managed to help others escape the Nazis, and were able to get away for themselves.
Eclectic Book Club Peeps:
All righty, let's have those nominations for our next big read. What's everyone in the mood for?
Post your selections in the "Genres" thread and we'll hash it out. If that takes too much energy, I will put all genres nominated in a hat and pick one at random!
Amazon.com and I have had a relationship for years now. The last time I moved I had 300 books that were mine and that didn't include any books that I bought for use at school or any textbooks or reference books. I had over 100 books that I took to school each year for my students to read that I purchased for them. Since then I've donated many to the local library for their book sale. I just didn't have room anymore! I joined PaperBackSwap.com to exchange paperbacks with other readers.
