Steve Liebowitz went for a vacation and visit to the Holy Lands. He returned home determined to learn more about his own heritage. One major result has been the creation of a trilogy of books, the first of which is titled Devorah. 175 years after Moses led the Children of Israel out of Egypt, Devorah, a prophet, became the first and only female Judge to rule ancient Israel. Surrounded by pagan Canaanites practicing ritual sex and human sacrifice, Devorah must find ways to maintain the Hebrews’ belief in the One God and overcome the Canaanites’ overwhelming military supremacy. (Do you remember our show with Richard Blackstone—Nuts and Bolts Spirituality—in which he discusses “Theory One” and “Theory Two” of who God is to us humans? Steve is also addressing this issue). Devorah’s story is the first in Steve Liebowitz’s The Covenant and The Scrolls series of novels based on these conflicting views of God and its influence on the lives of Kings Saul, David, Solomon and other Old Testament characters. He is a fantastic writer; and his book was edited by none other than our dear Deki Fox! Don’t miss this fascinating exploration.
While Dr. Steve was unable to join us for this exploration of Devorah, his editor (and the show's best friend) Deki Fox was able to join us and give a fascinating "read" on this first installment of The Covenant and The Scrolls Trilogy with host Ilene. Don't miss it.
