Sons of Encouragement 5-in-1 by Francine Rivers
A companion to A Lineage of Grace, this book includes five novellas that peer into the lives of five biblical men who stood behind the great heroes of faith:
The Priest: Aaron
Meet Moses' brother Aaron, the first high priest of Israel. How will Aaron support Moses while he struggles with being satisfied with God's plan for his own life? Be inspired by how this seemingly secondary character plays a key role in supporting his leader and impacting the faith for eternity.
The Warrior: Caleb
Illuminating the life of Caleb, a man whose faith and zeal for God helped lead God's people into the Promised Land. Discover a man full of passion, humility, and faith; a man who encouraged Joshua and stood strong in the face of sin. The Warrior also includes a Bible study on the life of Caleb, suitable for individual use or group discussion.
The Prince: Jonathan
Behind the men who shaped history are the heroes who forever changed it. In The Prince, beloved author Francine Rivers illuminates the life of Jonathan.
The Prophet: Amos
In The Prophet, the fourth book in the Sons of Encouragement series, beloved author Francine Rivers illuminates the life of Amos. Francine examines the life of Amos and his relationship to Israel during its prosperous years. Amos's message—and his relationship with God—made him unpopular. But his challenge to those who were enjoying the blessings of prosperity was crucial then and is strikingly timely today as well.
The Scribe: Silas
The Scribe, the fifth and final book, tells the story of Silas, the man behind the spotlight who recorded most of the New Testament Scriptures we read today. Along the way readers will be captivated by the growth of the early church and the trials Paul suffers before he is martyred for the cause of Christ.
