The new book is the second book in the Empire of Israel series. The first book in the series, ‘Gideon, The Sound and The Glory’ was also a #1 bestseller.
WILMINGTON, NC, May 12, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — Bestselling author Joseph Ganci has announced that his latest book, ‘David, God’s Chosen Crucible,’ has achieved bestseller status in the Christian Historical Fiction category.
Bringing Biblical characters and events to life, adding vibrancy to ancient stories and historical personalities with odd-sounding names, and living in odd-sounding places, is the unique talent Ganci brings to his Christian fiction novels. Reading his books brings us to a stark revelation – human beings have not changed much in over 2000 years. And that is what makes them so intriguing. A perfect example of this is the current furor over the issue of abortion:
“David had a life-and-death decision to make. If Nathan, the prophet, was made aware of David’s adultery with Bathsheba, now pregnant with David’s baby. Her condition would only stand to confirm the illicit romance. Bathsheba and the child that she carried would be stoned to death. David either had to abort his offspring to save face and his soulmate’s life or have Uriah the Hittite slaughtered. As a result, of her husband’s murder, Bathsheba became available for marriage. Or she could be compelled to drink the bitter waters, her belly swell, and her thigh would fall off, killing her and the baby, and her name blotted out forever. Uriah is ultimately sacrificed on the altar of love and expediency. Consequently, unnamed and unmourned, David’s love child dies seven days after birth.
“The practice of abortion — the termination of a pregnancy — has been known since ancient times. Abortion laws and their enforcement have fluctuated through various eras. During the 20th century, abortion-rights movements successfully had abortion bans repealed in much of the Western world. While abortion remains legal in most of the West, this legality is regularly challenged by anti-abortion groups. The Soviet Union under Vladimir Lenin is recognized as the first country to legalize abortion on demand.”
In ‘David, God’s Chosen Crucible,’ David is every man’s man, an outlaw prophet, a man of war, and a man of God. He is a ruthless warrior, an ardent lover, a skilled musician, and a poet-philosopher. God sees in him the heart of a lion, the tenacity of a bear, and an ever-faithful man of action. Thus, God calls an unlikely and lowly shepherd boy to become the king of the Jews and the fighting prince of Israel.
David overcomes all odds in escaping every snare, evading every trap, and learns from every encounter, growing in understanding and effectiveness in the love of his Creator. He protects, defends, and enlarges the stakes of Zion, the resting place of God’s chosen people. David reaches the pinnacle of all worldly success. He marries the love of his life and is the master of all that he surveys, even surpassing his imagination. Witness the steamy twofold seduction of Bathsheba, a married woman and her soul mate, the insatiable romantic David, her king, her equal, and her indomitable lover.
Readers will relish this incredible enchanting historical fiction. Experience the heart-pounding narrow escapes from the vengeful King Saul, be a party to the kidnapping of David’s two wives and his ferocious battle against the shapeshifting Amalekites, and be present as he wins them back and, in doing so, captures a vast treasure trove of flocks, herds, and gold that helps to secure his two kingdoms. Readers will join the battle at Mount Gilboa. Witness the destruction of Saul and his sons foretold by the witch of Endor, celebrate the fall of the city of waters and the last puzzle piece needed to establish the empire of Israel, look down from the high walls of Rabbah and learn of the required destruction of Uriah the Hittite. Then stand invited to the marriage ceremony of David and his soulmate Bathsheba, the future mother of King Solomon, the future monarch of Israel.
The new book is available on Amazon in e-Book, paperback, hardcover, and soon an audio edition.
Ganci takes a ground-breaking and revelatory path in his quest to bring the awe-inspiring stories to life and ultimately to film. He believes that connecting facts is far more enchanting than loosely fitting fantasies. He works within an engaging and dramatized fiction framework that remains faithful to uphold spiritual principles while exceedingly rich in detail.
Ganci bases his work on three primary pillars:
* The rock-solid cornerstone is historical biblical geography.
* The creative arch is revelatory in its timing and issues.
* The research is concrete and firmly rooted in customs, languages, and traditions.
Ganci fills in the blanks with rock-solid research and prophetic revelations. It is a style that has allowed him to create breakthrough approaches that are exciting and breathtaking while remaining within the limits of sound biblical teachings.
Ganci is also the creator of ‘Incredible Bible Mysteries,’ a five-part video series now available on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCK0Op2dYhMXtz7nh2D__keQ.
Ganci believes that Old Testament revelations are the Word of God. Simultaneously, many needful details remained buried until the information age of discovery made them prominent and visible to the naked eye. These insights create a middle ground of understanding. As a dedicated and highly motivated researcher, he proposes many undiscovered nuggets of spiritual gold in the original manuscripts. He shines a new light on ancient texts and removes the black or white argument of the all-or-nothing question of modern-day revelations. He is adept at untangling philosophical and theological human-made knots. He allows us to take a fresh look at what some consider to be foregone conclusions.
Readers of his bestseller, ‘Gideon, The Sound and the Glory’ will learn about the Jewish Tabernacle, the Ark of the Covenant, the mysterious Golden Ephod, why David found himself at battle with Goliath, and much, much more. This work illuminates the dark corners of scripture while engaging readers in a gripping narrative.
