Litfuse Review: Until My Name is Known by:Sonya Contreras

Until My Name Is Known (Tell of My Kingdom's Glory, #1)
About the Book:
It’s a love story between God and His people. God woos His people to Himself as He prepares them to leave Egypt. Before leaving, God must fight Pharaoh for possession of His people.

Can you trust a God Who destroyed a nation before your eyes?
Would you want Him as your Friend?

See God free His people from Egypt’s bonds
Before a watching world.
Trace His Finger in the lives He touches.

The Time: 2450 BC
The Place: Old Kingdom of Egypt
Pharaoh is god.
His people worship him.
Israel’s God arrives.
He challenges Pharaoh.
His power touches all people.
They must change.
Some don’t concede. They suffer.
Others yield. They find freedom.
Until My Name Is Known brings all to see the one true God.
Read it to see Him.

Today’s historians and archaeologists puzzle
over the fall of the Old Kingdom of Egypt,
But the world at that time heard of God.
The world knew that He is the Lord.
His Name was proclaimed in all the earth.

My Review:
 Very similar to Lynn Austin, Sonya Contreras blend a rich Biblical history with a fictional account. This book actually appealed to me more because of the type of story that was written. Sometimes it's nice to get a break and read something based on a real situation or happening. The author managed to give each character in the story a strong voice, so we get a chance to see the vantage point from each character, no stone was left unturned. Each vivid character comes to life through the words and writings of the author. Very rich, strong and very believable.

 The story the Israelite's exodus from Egypt. That Biblical account is a pretty huge one that saturates the Bible. The world now turns towards Israel and watches how history once again will unfold, but will God's people be protected? And I think we all know what the outcome will be in that situation. It is one situation I hate to watch but at the same time I'm believing God for a victory. after all they are His people and He will do whatever it takes to protect them. That is why a story like this is so fitting and this moment in time. It was a good reminder of past and future as well as present events.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from Litfuse Publicity.
