Giant Walls Will Come Tumbling Down.
In this second companion volume to Joshua Valiant, the story of the conquest of the Promised Land of Canaan continues. Moses has died, the Israelites stand poised to invade Canaan. Their first target: The impenetrable mighty walls of Jericho.
But God has been preparing a pagan harlot named Rahab to help Israel. They soon discover through prophecy that she is a crucial link to God’s plan of redemption for the Seed of Abraham. And she has fallen in love with an Israelite warrior whose child she bears.
Unfortunately, the Anakim giants of Canaan have also discovered Rahab’s identity and have sent assassins to take her out.
At the same time, Joshua and Caleb assault the Anakim stronghold and face the tallest, most ruthless of all giants: The brothers Ahiman, Sheshai and Talmai.
Worse yet, the patron deity of the Anakim is the storm god Ba’al. They’re going to need the archangels’ help or they haven’t got a chance.
This is what the War of the Seed has been building towards.

Author Godawa shares the scholarly research that undergirds the fictional adventure. Caleb Vigilant as an appendix that explores how the Bible writers used their literary skills to subvert the pagan god Ba’al of Canaan.
Biblical Fantasy Based on History and Ancient Mythology
Caleb Vigilant is written in the spirit of The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lord of the Rings, blending fantasy and mythopoeia with history to retell the Biblical narrative with a fresh perspective, making it come alive in a new way, while staying true to the original spirit of the Bible story.
It’s like connecting the dots and filling in the story between the lines of what the Bible tells us.
A NOTE ON THE AGE APPROPRIATENESS OF THE NOVELS
Some Christians have asked what “rating” the novels have in terms of the portrayal of sex and violence. I would say the series is rated PG-13. The Chronicles do deal with evil behaviors that would be appropriate for mature teens and above. The violence in the Chronicles is like the book of Judges. The sexuality is like Song of Solomon, alluded to poetically, but obviously. The description of sexual evil is like Ezekiel 16, sometimes shocking, but never glorified. There is an occasional profane word or vulgarity like in Ezekiel 23, revealing spiritual wickedness.
