Serpent of Moses Review | Missouri Made Momma

How would you like to travel the Middle East and look for a sacred staff from the Bible?  Ok, so maybe that doesn’t sounds like fun to most of you but, to me, it sounds like a great time.  I got to take that trip, in the comfort of my home, through the book Serpent of Moses by Don Hoesel. 
 In Hoesel’s most recent book, you will take a trip through the Middle East, Milan, and London in search of the Nehushtan.  Moses’ staff with the serpent on the top.  Such a beautiful, historical artifact.  Who other than Jack Hawthorne, world renown archeologist, to take you on that journey.  Don’t worry, it won’t be a boring trip, there will be some bumps in the road.  
 Along the road you will meet a long time girlfriend of Jack’s named Esperanza, and Jim Ducket, former CIA agent, colleague, and friend of Jack’s.  Also, don’t forget about the Israeli army, villagers in Tunisia and others sent to recover the staff and kill whoever gets in their way.
 I have to admit that even though this book was a great adventure it took me a few tries to get started with it.  The first chapter is a little slow, even with everything going on in it, but, if you can sit down and read a few chapters without stopping you will be hooked.  I had no problem visualizing everything that was happening and places that I traveled to because of Hoesel’s writing.  It was wonderful.  Who know’s it might have just been me having problems getting into it but, I am really glad that I pushed through and read it.  I loved the adventure it took me on.

I received this book free from Bethany House.  I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255
