Item description for Zipporah's Song by John L. Cowart...
Priests exercise great influence over the affairs of Jericho. They are military leaders, emissaries between the people and the gods, and counsels to the king. Jericho is a small kingdom pressed by the powerful Midianites on the East and the Philistines on the West. Zipporah, the wife of the Lawgiver Moses, and daughter of Jethro, the Priest of Midian, tells her father s story. From humble origins, Jethro rises to great prominence. A leader in battle, he humiliates his foes, and in diplomacy, he forms a bond with the Kingdom of Bethel by the marriage between Ruth, his sister, and Daniel, the son of the ambassador from Bethel , but he can never win the approval of his father who resembles the tyrannical Baal, the god he has sworn to serve. Jethro s struggle to discover the true religion plunges him from the heights of power but wins him freedom and peace.

Zipporah's Song Nov 23, 2008
If you've wondered about early biblical times in the Middle east, this is the book for you. Much research has been done on the history and customs of that era. When you have several hours to commit to reading this book, let yourself become engrossed in one of the most interesting stories about the lives and peoples of that time. I enjoyed it immensely and plan to reread it to get more of the story that I'm sure I missed the first time. So many times I felt as if I was there feeling all the pains and injuries of the battles that were being raged. J.B.
