Item description for The Priest: Aaron (Sons of Encouragement Series #1) by Francine Rivers & Chris Fabry...

The Priest begins Francine Rivers' series of the lives of five men who stood behind the great heroes of the faith. Building upon her tremendous success with the Lineage of Grace Series, The Priest finds Rivers at her best when we meet Aaron, brother of Moses, and first High Priest of Israel. Listen as Rivers takes a man seen as part of a supporting cast and elevates him to his rightful place - as a key leader who impacts the faith for eternity.

More About Francine Rivers & Chris Fabry

Francine Rivers Francine Rivers began her literary career at the University of Nevada, Reno, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and Journalism. From 1976 to 1985, she had a successful writing career in the general market and her books were awarded or nominated for numerous awards and prizes. Although raised in a religious home, Francine did not truly encounter Christ until later in life, when she was already a wife, mother of three, and an established romance novelist. Shortly after becoming a born-again Christian in 1986, Francine wrote Redeeming Love as her statement of faith. First published by Bantam Books, and then re-released by Multnomah Publishers in the mid- 1990s, this retelling of the biblical story of Gomer and Hosea set during the time of the California Gold Rush is now considered a classic work of Christian fiction and continues to be one of the Christian Booksellers Association’s top-selling titles; it has held a spot on the Christian bestseller list for nearly a decade.

Since Redeeming Love, Francine has published more than 20 novels with Christian themes - all bestsellers- and she has continued to win both industry acclaim and reader loyalty around the globe. Her Christian novels have been awarded or nominated for numerous awards including the RITA Award, the Christy Award, the ECPA Gold Medallion, and the Holt Medallion in Honor of Outstanding Literary Talent. In 1997, after winning her third RITA award for Inspirational Fiction, Francine was inducted into the Romance Writers’ of America Hall of Fame. In 2007, the feature-length film version of her novel The Last Sin Eater was released in theaters by Fox Faith. In March 2010, Francine officially became a New York Times bestselling author, when Her Mother’s Hope debuted at #12 on the hardcover fiction bestsellers lists. The sequel, Her Daughter’s Dream, debuted at #12 on the same list just 6 months later, in September, 2010. Francine’s novels have been translated into over twenty different languages and she enjoys best-seller status in many foreign countries including Germany, The Netherlands, and South Africa.

Francine and her husband Rick live in Northern California and enjoy the time spent with their three grown children and every opportunity to spoil their five grandchildren. She uses her writing to draw closer to the Lord, and that through her work she might worship and praise Jesus for all He has done and is doing in her life.

Francine Rivers currently resides in the state of California. Francine Rivers was born in 1947.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Priest: Aaron (Sons of Encouragement Series #1)?

Slight disappointment  Jul 14, 2008
Rivers is a wonderful author and I expected these books to be as good as her Lineage of Grace series. They were not quite there...
Disgusted  Oct 15, 2007
I have read behind many fiction writers and it disgusts me when one will write and not follow according to scripture. When a writer deals with biblical teachings or history, it is a lie if they do not re[present the truth to the fullest. According to Genesis, it was Moses who spoke to Pharoah and nmot Aaron.
The Priest  Oct 11, 2006
This is the first of this series by Francine Rivers that I have read, and though it was a good read, I felt it fell a little short of the high standard she has set for herself. I guess the adage that you cant hit a homerun every time holds true. Perhaps my disappointment comes form the subject itself. The subject being Aaron, who, in many ways could be considered a poster child of Biblical failure. They Bible presents Aaron as somewhat of a "side kick". He was Moses' Tonto, if you will. And certainly one of the countless perplexing questions I intend to ask God when I stand before the throne is, "Why Aaron?" Why was he chosen to be the High Priest of the Jews? He was certainly not a mature believer and seemed a rather bad choice for the position. Was he the most prepared candidate? Surely Caleb, or even on good days, Joshua, was more qualified.

At any rate, I digress. The book is meticulously accurate, as with all of River's works, but failed to have that page turning passion that her books normally provide. It follows the life of Aaron from childhood to death and Rivers clearly illustrates Aaron's many failures and weaknesses along the way.

I'll certainly read the other books in this series. I just hope to see a return of the type narrative I've come to expect from the very gifted writer.
Understanding the people in the Bible  Jul 31, 2006
I loved this little book because it gave me insight into the life of Aaron and his brother Moes; allowing me to see the heart of God toward His people. The book is an easy read, but its insights will stay with you forever.
Be patient, it's well worth the read  Mar 6, 2006
I have to admit, I have read all but 2 of Francine's books and this one took me the longest to get through. To me, it was slow and redundant, not necessarily something I attribute to Francine's writing, but more so to the biblical account of the story itself.

The repetition comes from the Isrealite's repeated loss of faith in God, which they seemed rather quick to acquire; and the severe complaints and actions that they take in disobedience to Him as a result. I found myself thinking..."again!", and then, "Again!" regarding their blatant rebellion, over and over, when reading this book. God must have been annoyed with His people (granted, the word Isreal does mean "to struggle with God"). Moses and Aaron really had their work cut out for them with these "stiff-necked" people, and there inlies the beauty of this book. The reward comes in realizing what Aaron went through over the span of his life. And I think it serves the Biblical account well in depicting the constant rebellion of the Isrealites during the first few years of their journey out of Egypt, which may not be so easily picked up on by reading a few chapter of the Bible at a time.

When I read this story in scripture, it is spread over so many chapters and books that Aaron's story seems woven throughout and somewhat thinned, therefore, I appreciate that Francine brought the events of his life together in this book.
