Historian and educator Richard Di Giacomo brings us a multi-generational tale about a family's journey to define and defend their faith. First their is Agga, a humble potter in Ur, in Ancient Mesopotamia. He is struggling to escape the hopelessness of polytheism when he encounters the new faith of Abraham. Then there is Tola, a leader of Israel in the time of the Judges, who must find a way to defeat the Philistine invaders when he knows nothing of war. Next, there is Shemayah, who believes in an exciting new teacher named Jesus, but must somehow convince his skeptical brothers. Finally there is Valeria, a gentle Byzantine scholar who feels compelled to tell the incredible story of God's miraculous provision for her family, but lives in a world where gifted women are not taken seriously. As you read the story of how this strong and dedicated family overcomes spiritual and physical challenges, your own faith will be inspired and uplifted! (Recommended for mature students only.
