Sorting through the rubble resulting from BALAAM'S CURSE, Othniel, Acsah and their friends find themselves facing floods of disappointment, grief, and fear. Moses dies. The Jordan slowly rises to an impassable, raging torrent. And Yahweh makes it clear that Joshua is His choice to replace their beloved leader. How can this hesitant assistant man lead them across the river? To bolster confidence, Joshua sends spies into Canaan. When they escape Jericho only by the faith and bravery of a Canaanite girl, the Promised Land doesn’t seem so promising.
Although human eyes see only a river separating Israel from the Promised Land, primordial powers of darkness are determined to prevent a crossing that will change the world.
In the thrilling sequel to Balaam’s Curse, Acsah, Othniel, Jonathan and their friends sort through the rubble of the Midianite war for pieces of the simple and innocent life they’ve lost. But there is no going back. While nearly drowning in personal rivers of disappointment, grief, and fear, they hardly notice the Jordan River slowly rising to an impassable, raging torrent. By the time they do, Moses is dead. Yahweh has made it clear that Joshua is his chosen replacement, but the people have little faith that this hesitant man can lead them into Canaan.
To bolster confidence, Joshua sends Salmon and another young spy across the river in a reconnaissance mission that plunges them into a world where evil prowls in broad daylight and death waits in the darkness. They escape the depraved city of Jericho only by the quick thinking of a Canaanite girl who risks her life in exchange for a promise of rescue. Now her life and the future of the world depend on crossing that river.
