I have always enjoyed the Thoenes’ books. They are able to take the Scriptures and add fictional aspects that make the original stories come alive. This particular story is written about a young boy who has been born to be the cupbearer of the Lord. It was young Nehemiah’s job to take the chalice cup that was bestowed to him and to clear the years of tarnish and give it to Jesus at just the right time.
Obstacles stand in his way throughout the journey, and Nehemiah finds himself traveling alone. He is forced to rely on individuals that he doesn’t know.
The novel is full of vivid imagery, and it will draw on your heartstrings. I highly recommend this novel to individuals who enjoy a bit of Biblical history.
