Joseph Ganci pierces the veil with a penetrating vision of long held Bible mysteries that are far and away daring and unusual. He works within a framework of an engaging and dramatized fiction that, while exceedingly rich in detail, remains faithful to uphold spiritual principles. He bases his work on three primary pillars:

The rock-solid cornerstone is biblical history and geography.
The creative arch is revelatory in its timing and issues.
The research is concrete, firmly rooted in customs, languages, and traditions.

The result is that booklovers are transported into the very midst of ancient conflicts and come away with an entirely fresh perspective on mystical teachings found in scripture, now living lessons filled with adventure that inspires wonder yet remain practical answering the challenges of everyday life.

Gideon: The Sound and the Glory by Joseph Ganci is a masterpiece of a story, a historical fiction read that will transport readers back to the biblical era, rich in history and culture. The novel follows the story of Gideon, a woodcutter and a simple man charged with an incredible mission: free Israel and conquer the Midian Empire. Consumed by fear and doubts, Gideon learns to trust in God and to take steps that soon become bold as his confidence in God grows even stronger. Get ready for an epic adventure with this warrior and watch giants tumble and monuments fall to the flames as he rides to glory, under the shadow of God’s protection.

Here is a tale that powerfully captures the essential elements of the spiritual journey of Israel, a story that vividly brings to life one of the many biblical heroes that are often forgotten. The story is written in an excellent manner and readers will love the balance that comes out neatly between character, plot, and setting. Joseph Ganci’s prose is arresting, peppered with wonderful imagery and succinct descriptions of plot, characters, and setting. The themes are masterfully created and they are woven into the story in a way that allows the reader to enjoy both the inspiration the story offers and the accompanying action. The book explores powerful spiritual and political themes, capturing the conflicts and the dynamics of life within the community of God's chosen people. Gideon: The Sound and the Glory will appeal to fans of political thrillers, adventure, and conflict-driven stories that are laced with intense action. I was hugely entertained by the writing and the plot. A real page-turner! - Readers Favorite Review

Gideon - The Sound And The Glory

Unsung heroes and murderous villains, hidden forever in ancient shadows, now leap to life - blazing onto the pages of revelation. Gideon, a lowly woodcutter, is blessed by an angel to be the savior of all Israel. He does not know why or how and shrinks from this dangerous mission. The commandment to conquer the Midian Empire as one man seems all but impossible. But Gideon’s confidence grows as God guides his every step until he stands fearless and faithfully fulfills his destiny as, “A mighty man of valor.” The fierce warriors, burning towers and devastated cities contained in Gideon’s Journey, are but silver threads that weave into a sweeping tapestry of ancient intrigue. Running through and stitching together the entire saga is The Lord of the Covenant, or The Baal-Berith, also known as Gideon’s mysterious Ephod of Gold.


A Message From Author Joseph Ganci

Gideon: The Sound and The Glory

The book that wrote itself

I was encouraged by a score of folks in as many years to write a book. When my nine-year-old granddaughter Claire, also pleaded to share my insights and acquired knowledge. At the time I did not contemplate a subject or a theme, the possibility was pressing but nothing concrete. I was reading the Bible, and it was my fifth pass from cover to cover. I had just reached Judges Six when a phrase leaped off the page. ~

And Gideon sent messengers throughout all mount Ephraim, saying, come down against the Midianites, and take before them ‘the waters unto Bethbarah’ and Jordan.

I started digging down and found it meant the shallow waters and the only fording place of the entire Jordan River. It was in effect a military dispatch directing the army of Ephriam to cut off the desperate flight of the remaining Midian cavalry.

I was intrigued, but the thought of a novel seemed far out of reach. I continued with the rest of Gideon’s story and touched upon Chapter Eight and the finale when another strange expression stirred my imagination. ~

Then said he unto Zebah and Zalmunna, What manner of men were they whom ye slew at ‘Tabor’? And they answered, as thou art, so were they; each one resembled the children of a king.

And he said, they were my brethren, even “the sons of my mother’: as the Lord liveth, if ye had saved them alive, I would not slay you.

Gideon’s brother’s suffered slaughter at the hands the Midian kings at the battle of Mount Tabor. I had discovered a timeless mystery hanging like a low-lying plum ripe for the plucking. The one word ‘Tabor’ created the first seven chapters, and it fashioned the first Trojan horse battle scene drawn from accounts in Bible history. There are fourteen battles of four of which have conclusions that have never before seen the light of reason. There is a hidden love story with a cast of characters that are both wondrous and yet remain eerily familiar. There are murder and mayhem and the slaughter of innocence. It was an exciting adventure to follow the ancient trail to the top of mountains and across hot desert wastelands. I was going places where no one had ventured for 3000 years. The novel starts with the battle of nine hundred chariots of Iron and ends with the maddening and murderous pursuit by King Saul of David the Shepard boy through the wilderness of Mason.

I am confident of your entertainment, excitement, and enlightenment. If you enjoy the reading half as much as I had enjoyed the writing, it will be well worth your time, for you will have acquired a pearl of great price.
