Barbara Britton has created a series of Biblical fiction books that bring life to the story of the Israelite’s journey to the Promised Land. Heavenly Lights tells the story of the fall of the wall of Jericho. Showing her understanding and love of the Old Testament, she stays true to the setting of the time period, creating fictional characters who could well have been there.

In this book we also see the power of God take many forms, from reward to punishment. The All Powerful God. The bravery of a shepherd, Jeremiah, who can neither hear, nor speak, but is willing to fight for what he desires is powerful. And the object of his desire, Noah, who stands with him throughout hardship from his injured animals to his injuries. Through these characters, Ms. Britton reminds her reader that God has a plan for all of us. As with Lioness, Heavenly Lights is both uplifting and insp

Jeremiah, a deaf mute and Noah have no problem communicating with each other and find their friendship growing into something stronger.

Care for the herds and the camels and other animals was described in several parts of the story. Situations like a difficult birth of a camel resulting in a potentially lame baby, pre
