THE PRIEST

Author(s): 

Join a master of fiction on a jaunt through the heart and mind of an unsung hero of the Bible—Aaron, Moses' brother and little recognized spokesman. We see Aaron develop from an embittered little boy to a man possessed by a like vision as his much-lauded brother was, but without the fanfare. The contrast between Aaron's lofty goals of the heart and his frequent failures of the flesh make the story all too real and personal.

Rivers delivers. Those two words say it all. Rich characterization and gripping plot are contained between the hard covers of this neatly crafted novella. This is the first in Rivers' series of five different men who served God faithfully in the shadows. (Apr., pp., $14.99)
