First Line Fridays: Redemption of the Mighty by Kenyon T. Henry

Welcome to First Line Fridays, hosted by Hoarding Books!

Anyways, I’m back and I’m so excited to talk to you about the book I’m featuring today.

And the book I’m featuring today is:

February 2019 Book Haul!

Happy March! How is everyone doing? February was such a short a month that it was hard to keep up. Anywho, are you curious to see which books made my book haul? Awesome, because that’s exactly what today’s post is about.

As always, there are all books that I either received from the author, publisher, of blog tour program for free in exchange for an honest review or books that I purchased. Any opinions expressed are completely my own and can be found in bold italics.

About the Book:

The Old Testament book of Daniel comes to life in this novel for readers of Lynn Austin’s Chronicles of the Kings series or Francine Rivers’ Mark of the Lion series.

Survival. A Hebrew girl first tasted it when she escaped death nearly seventy years ago as the Babylonians ransacked Jerusalem and took their finest as captives. She thought she’d perfected in the many years amongst the Magoi and the idol worshippers, pretending with all the others in King Nebuchadnezzar’s court. Now, as Daniel’s wife and a septuagenarian matriarch, Belili thinks she’s safe and she can live out her days in Babylon without fear–until the night Daniel is escorted to Belshazzar’s palace to interpret mysterious handwriting on a wall. The Persian Army invades, and Bellili’s tightly-wound secrets unfurl with the arrival of the conquering army. What will the reign of Darius mean for Daniel, a man who prays to Yahweh alone? 
Ultimately, Yahweh’s sovereign hand guides Jerusalem’s captives, and the frightened Hebrew girl is transformed into a confident woman, who realizes her need of the God who conquers both fire and lions.

About the Book:

Insecurity is easily the most pervasive struggle of women in America today. We have more ways than ever to compare ourselves to others–who are all prettier, thinner, smarter, more successful, and more put together than we are–and our sense of self-worth takes a serious beating on an almost daily basis. We’re tired of simply commiserating with writers and bloggers who share their own struggles–we want real, workable solutions about how to find peace with ourselves.
