Powerful Leaders Who Compromise Their Integrity Through Attacks On Women Is Nothing New States Joseph Ganci, Award-Winning Author Of Biblical Historical Fiction Novel ‘Gideon The Sound And The Glory’

Powerful Leaders Who Compromise Their Integrity Through Attacks On Women Is Nothing New

Yet again Donald Trump has been accused of making unwanted advances. According to a recent article on the Intelligencer website, the latest accusation by E. Jean Carroll brings the number of accusers to 16. While many of us see this as a modern-day problem, these types of situations have taken place throughout recorded history – many in the Bible itself. The Biblical versions often read as mere accountings of sordid historical events. Award-winning author Joseph Ganci however, through both meticulous research and modern-day revelation, brings some of these stories to life through historical fiction in ways that are engaging and compelling.

Ganci has a finely tuned flair for the dramatic. He uses this to turn the little-known account of Gideon into a Bible-based novel that reads like a modern-day major motion picture. He shows us that Biblical stories can be more than just dusty history – they can be keenly entertaining. He brings the Bible to life and rekindles the fires of ancient passions. He offers practical application of revelatory insights of faith, visions, and spiritual determination for modern-day living. He does it all in ways that will entertain, motivate and enlighten. He recently had this to say:

“She’s not my type.” said Donald Trump, and so too said David, king of Israel also claimed his innocence. ‘Indeed, not a married woman for the penalty of adultery is stoning, and it makes no difference either beggar or prince; it is a worldly as well as a spiritual death.’ David even goes so far as to collude with his nephew, his chief captain Joab to orchestrate the ultimate penalty on an innocent man Uriah, his loyal soldier to cover his evil intentions and shield him from any consequences.”

“Did David, already married to six wives, take Bathsheba another man’s wife to his bed because he is king and you cannot deny the king anything, even adultery. Did Bathsheba entice, seduce, and arouse David’s insatiable ardor knowing full well his weakness for youthful and beautiful women? Was Bathsheba’s marriage to a Hittite a grave mistake? Did she remain an unfulfilled and then an unfaithful woman from a powerful and wealthy family? Was David seduced, or was it by David’s command that keeps us guessing as to the actual events over these past three millennia? The Devil might be in the cracks and the crevices, but God is certainly in the details. The details in the timing and the location of the planned seduction lead me to only one conclusion that David, was a willing accomplice seduced by a woman’s wiles. But that is not an excuse even for a king or any man to compromise his integrity and blame his sexual attraction and then his brutish actions because of a woman’s alluring beauty, either hidden or breathtaking.”

Gideon coverHis eyes are straining against the deepening dark for one more fading glimpse of this mysterious vixen. The two women hoisted the flaming torches and disappeared behind closed doors leaving a void where only moments before David’s exotic fantasy was born.

David still reeling from the hot sweat of passion desperately inquired of all his household servants, saying, “A strange woman has suddenly appeared like a water nymph bathing on Ahithophel rooftop bath. Who is this bewitching creature?

Silence hung for only a moment when a servant girl both bashful and private uttered, “From your description and location sire it has to be Bathsheba, daughter of Eliam and so too the granddaughter of Ahithophel. Sire, she is also the recent wife of Uriah the converted Hittite. I know this my lord from the gossip of chambermaids and kitchen servants. David, pondered, “Why is that I had never seen her before?” The servant girl anxious from her ongoing conversation with the king took a nervous breath and continued, “She lives with her husband Uriah in Captain Eliam’s former residence located in the old Benjamite quarter of the city.”

David dismissed all that were in attendance but two of his most loyal and trusted bodyguards, Ahava, and Saval. He commanded, “I need you two to go and deliver a message to the lady Bathsheba who is at Ahithophel’s adjacent mansion with haste and discretion” David hurriedly set to work on a royal request with heartfelt words of love, desire, and ravenous passion. David procured a new clay writing tablet from his open cabinet.

Bathsheba, comely daughter of Eliam

By chance, design, or by divine coincidence, my eyes have beheld the fullness of your loveliness. My breath catches, and my aching heart is filled and ready to burst at the mere thought of your beauty. Under every violation, the pursuit of you, my most ardent and longing desire, and by everything holy, I should not be coveting another man’s wife.

So, dear lady, please forgive me for you have captured my soul, will, and emotions. I find myself adrift in a whirlwind of love since the moment that my eyes beheld the very first sight of you. I beg and beseech you for your presence if nothing but to talk so that I can hear the pleasant-sounding of your voice and feel the comfort from your closeness.

If this earnest plea does not sway you, then I command you, as your king and sovereign, for I will not take no for an answer.

David, son of Jesse.

Ganci takes a ground-breaking and revelatory path in his quest to bring the awe-inspiring story of Gideon to life and ultimately to film. He believes that connecting facts are far more enchanting than loosely fitting fantasies. 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 historical biblical geography.

* The creative arch is revelatory in its timing and issues.

* The research is concrete, firmly rooted in customs, languages, and traditions.

Ganci fills in the blanks with rock-solid research and prophetic revelations. It is a style that has allowed him to create breakthrough approaches that are exciting and breathtaking while remaining within the limits of believable biblical teachings.

Mysteries long hidden in ancient shadows now leap to life blazing unto the pages of revelation. Details that link passages, peoples, and places are the most exciting part of the storytelling process. Details give possibilities a firm foundation as bones give form and strength to living flesh. Details long since lost or misunderstood, now ring true, giving texture, and breath, to long-forgotten gems of perception resurrected from ruins, dust, and ashes.

Ganci believes that Old Testament revelations are the Word of God. At the same time, that many needful details remained buried until the information age of discovery made them obvious and visible to the naked eye. These insights create a middle ground of understanding. As a dedicated and highly motivated researcher, he proposes there are many undiscovered nuggets of spiritual gold in the original manuscripts. He shines a new light on ancient texts and removes the black or white argument of the all-or-nothing question of modern-day revelations. He is adept at untangling the philosophical and theological human-made knots. And he gives us an opportunity to take a fresh look at what some consider to be foregone conclusions.

Readers of ‘Gideon The Sound and the Glory’ will learn about the Jewish Tabernacle, the Ark of the Covenant, the mysterious Golden Ephod, how, and why, David found himself at his battle with Goliath, and much, much more. This work illuminates the dark corners of scripture while engaging readers in a gripping narrative.

Joseph Ganci was recently chosen as one of ’50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading’ in the 2017 Book Awards. ‘Gideon: The Sound and the Glory’ has received rave reviews from readers and reviewers alike. A recent reviewer stated, “Joseph Ganci’s prose is arresting, peppered with fantastic 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 laced with intense action.” Other reviewers have used phrases such as “riveting,” “amazing” “deftly crafted” and “highly recommended.”

Bathsheba’s beguiling bath of intrigue

David Sees Bathsheba Bathing

Bathsheba bathingAs you know, your grandfather Ahithophel’s mansion is directly adjacent and slightly below the king’s rooftop garden. I have observed David often engaged in his regular and predictable evening ritual. His maidservant known for her gossip when she is in her cups confided in me that David rests most days and arises just before sundown, the time of poets and philosophers. He goes up directly to his rooftop garden alone most every day when he is in attendance for quiet prayer and meditation. David is known for staying up late and long into the night.

Bathsheba shook her head. What are you getting at Almah? Almah, with a wicked wink, laid out her plan of conspiracy and seduction. Ahithophel’s rooftop has a mikveh, the ceremonial bath that can collect rainwater and purify you from your uncleanness once your regular issue of blood had ended and then judged sanctified by the law, but not until after sundown. At the very same time, I might add, that David will be on his rooftop retreat and in full view of your natural beauty, just like God made you.” “I am both puzzled and enchanted by your outrageous proposal,” Bathsheba curiously continued, “But he already has six wives, does he not?” “Yes, my lady, he does, but he also has a keen eye for beautiful women. David is brilliant; he is handsome as he is virile and a renowned poet-musician. There is no prohibition in the Torah for the number of wives a man might acquire. It is good to consider that David is king, and no one says no to the king for such would be treason.”

“Bathsheba lamented, “There is a flaw in your cunning plan for I have not had an issue of blood since the dreadful end to my pregnancy. I believe God has sealed up my womb and has taken away my creative spark.” Almah, would not be dissuaded, and said as much, “Your flow will begin again, I know it, and your health renewed. A new life will be your reward for God blesses his faithful. When your issue of blood ceases the ritual mikveh bath filled to the brim with rainwater will purify your unclean period. Then and only then we will be ready to entice the unsuspecting prince on the roof of your grandfather’s mansion.”

Just as Almah had predicted, Bathsheba’s natural monthly cycle reappeared with cramping, fatigue, and eruptions of anger. Almah was delighted that her prophetic insight had so rapidly come to pass. Almah insisted, “It is time to prepare, we will go to the mansion and help make ready for the mikveh bath. Your timing is crucial; you need to be exiting the tub just as David approaches the very edge of his overhead balcony. The sun still emitting enough light so that he can feast his eyes on your youthful nakedness, glistening wet, vivid, and striking.

Early afternoon found the two plotters setting off for the house of Ahithophel. “If we are well-prepared fate and luck will ensure our success.” Almah quipped. “Where is Uriah, your doting husband, will he not be curious as to your whereabouts?” Bathsheba shook her head, “No, not at all; he is on a training mission in the desert. There is some invasion or big battle about to take place. Uriah is very closed-mouthed about such happenings.”

The two women briskly approached the mansion they entered freely being recognized as family.” Where is my grandfather, Bathsheba inquired?” The head servant replied, “The master is away in a foreign land, an ambassador promoting the goodwill of the king. I believe he is on a trading mission to Egypt” The two women smiled at each other for the timing of Ahithophel’s absence could not have made things easier.

Almah, addressed the head servant, “We need to prepare the mikveh for my lady’s purification ritual. Gather up the rainwater from the rooftop cisterns. Heat the water at the downstairs hearth and fill the tub until it is steaming hot. Most importantly make sure everything stands ready so that my lady can enter into the water shortly before sundown and while the light from the dying sun still lingers on the horizon.”

All the needful things were in their proper place. The sun and the stage were both ready to set.

Bathsheba disrobed her stunning figure brightening the dimming light. She slipped into the steamy brazen tub moaning with delight — the warm water began caressing her tingling flesh and heightening her senses.

Almah kept a watchful eye until she spotted David’s long shadow approaching from his upper gallery. Almah hissed, “He comes.” At the perfect moment, Bathsheba stood up dripping wet, water droplets glistening in the freshly lit torchlight. She refrained from looking up as she felt hungry eyes drinking in her primal beauty.

Almah approached with a warm towel, slowly circling the tub squeezing out every desire filled second. Almah began by drying her mistress, shrewdly patting Bathsheba’s shapely legs, rounded buttocks, and dabbing gently at upturned breasts.

David was enchanted, a tempest of lust washed over him with every sensual gesture. His eyes are straining against the deepening dark for one more fading glimpse of this mysterious vixen. The two women hoisted the flaming torches and disappeared behind closed doors leaving a void where only moments before David’s exotic fantasy was born.

David still reeling from the hot sweat of passion desperately inquired of all his household servants, saying, “A strange woman has suddenly appeared like a water nymph bathing on Ahithophel rooftop bath. Who is this bewitching creature?

Chapter Twenty-Four, The Cruelest Cut of All.

The house of the king was broad and grand as the smell of cedar increased as Horite drew near. The Ahithophel’s mansion was not quite as bold and slightly to the rear of the king’s stately castle. Horite approached the lesser manor and was immediately challenged by the gate keeper, “Who goes there and what is wanted? Horite showed himself from out behind a late afternoon shadow and replied, My name is Horite, and I wish to speak to Bathshua. A yawning guard muttered to his drowsy cohort, “Is that not the name of the man that the master is so keenly seeking?” The alerted guard called out, “hold fast stranger; I will inquire of lord Ahithophel, my master. Scurrying down the passage way, he called back, “Keep your eyes fixed on this fellow and do not let him escape your grasp or your gaze.” Two additional guards were quickly dispatched and escorted the waiting stranger to Ahithophel’s study chamber.

Ahithophel stood up and attempted to put the seducer of his granddaughter at ease, “My name is Ahithophel, and I am Bathshua’s grandfather, and so too the chief counselor to the king. Ahithophel in a comforting tone bade, “Have no fear or misgiving, and please enter and be assured no harm will come to you for we have an urgent matter to discuss, Can I offer you a cup of wine or something to eat? Horite was watchful of the two burley sentries that stood firm blocking the only exit, “Thank you, lord, my mouth is dry, and I will need a drink to wet my lips and slake a parched throat. Ahithophel nodded to one of the sentries who nodded back and then quickly withdrew to provide a quenching vintage from his master’s cellar. Ahithophel inquired, “Your name is Horite and you are a Hittite from the north and east around about the Syrian border. “Yes, my lord, it is all true.” “So then young man what has brought you to Jerusalem?” Horite was pleased to tell his tale, “My clan was being compelled to join forces with the Syrians to fight against David and Israel. I wished to have no part in such a recruitment, for I reverend David as a champion and Israel as a choice people. I escaped at night and offered my sword to the chief captain, Joab. He promised me a regular place in the army, and passage back to Jerusalem as a hero.

It was my first night in your magical city when I met Bathshua, please forgive me lord for it was love at first sight and I did succumb to my base desire. I have searched for her as a man possessed since that night of reckless abandon. I would honor Bathshua and so impart my offer of marriage.” Ahithophel was surprisingly impressed with Horites forthright candor and said so “As you have been searching out Bathshua I have been searching for you.” “For me lord?” Horite puzzled. Ahithophel snapped, “Yes, and this because Bathshua is with child and to all signs the child is yours.

Gideon The Sound and The Glory

Power Politics, Donald Trump, And The Supreme Court Justice Confirmation Hearings Reflect Back To Old Testament Biblical Upheavals, Says Award-Winning Author Joseph Ganci

In ‘Gideon, The Sound, and the Glory,’ Ganci combines Old Testament revelations with modern day revelations, action, and adventure to provide audiences with a unique, emotionally charged experience.

Joseph Ganci, old testament revelationsThe sideshow atmosphere of modern-day political shenanigans and constant power struggles appeal to us for many reasons. They entice and captivate our sensual desires in the same manner as our favorite dramas, thrillers, and action / adventure movies. Why is this so? It is because both political chicanery and epic movies allow us to live vicariously through both hero and villain from a position of relative safety while skirting the fringes of reality on the other side of our internet connections.

These types of gripping human dramas have been playing out since Biblical times. While political dramas and action/adventure themes may not be our first thought when considering stories from the Old Testament, author Joseph Ganci has managed to turn the little-known account of Gideon into a Bible-based novel that reads like a modern-day major motion picture. He shows us that Biblical stories can be more than just dusty history – they can be keenly entertaining. He brings the Bible to life and rekindles the fires of ancient passions. He offers practical application of revelatory insights of faith, visions, and spiritual determination for modern-day living. He does it all in ways that will entertain, motivate and enlighten. His readers attest to his skill and his ability to do just that. The public reviews for ‘Gideon’ say it all:

“Joseph Gauci’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.”

“Joseph Ganci takes a story that is recounted through just a few select chapters in the Old Testament book of Judges and creates a beautiful, strikingly visual novelization. In this book, the author shows himself in as a researcher, a Biblical word-scholar, and a master narrator.”

“The tale itself has a great table to set. Mr. Ganci does this with style, and then lights the match so that the action (like a Harry Potter book) carries the reader through the entire second half.”

“Reading has always been a real escape for me. I remember back reading books that one could not put down until the end of the final chapter: “The Godfather,” Books by Dan Brown, The Harry Potter series and others. This book, Gideon, The Sound and the Glory, is one of those books that one can’t put down . . . I hope that this book is made into a movie soon.”

“The author, Joseph Ganci, a biblical scholar, visionary, prophetic interpreter and great storyteller . . . His book Gideon: The Sound and the Glory takes the reader on a poetic journey of exciting adventure, intrigue, romance, deceit, murder, honor, betrayal, prophesy and war. Would liken his book to episodes in a Star Wars movie.”

“I enjoyed the book very much. Joseph Ganci has brought to life an Old Testament story. What is only a couple of chapters the Book of Judges, becomes a novel of over 350 pages. The characters in the novel come to life with all the emotions, feelings, and anxieties of real-life beings. The pages are full of intrigue, romance, deceit, murder, honor, betrayal, prophecy, war; all the makings of a first-class epic thriller.”

Many more reviews are available at Amazon.

Ganci takes a ground-breaking and revelatory path in his quest to bring the awe-inspiring story of Gideon to life and ultimately to film.

Old Testament Revelation, Modern Day Revelation And Trump’s Power Struggles – Nothing New Under The Sun Says Award-Winning Author Joseph Ganci

In ‘Gideon, The Sound, and the Glory,’ Ganci combines Old Testament revelations with modern day revelations, action, and adventure to provide audiences with a unique, emotionally charged experience.

Joseph Ganci, old testament revelationsFor award-winning author Joseph Ganci, author of ‘Gideon, The Sound and the Glory,’ the political upheavals and power struggles we read in our headlines nearly every day are nothing new. “There is nothing new under the sun.” King Solomon. These only appear to be something new, as today all the conflicting and sordid political details are easily available to public opinion. In many ways, however, these modern-day political dramas play out familiar storylines that harken back to Biblical times. “We have learned by sad experience,” Ganci stated, “that it is the nature and disposition of almost all men, as soon as they get a little authority, as they suppose, they will immediately begin to exercise forceful domination and embrace the illusion of control over the affairs of men.”

Ganci has a finely tuned flair for the dramatic. He uses this to turn the little-known account of Gideon into a Bible-based novel that reads like a modern-day major motion picture. He shows us that Biblical stories can be more than just dusty history – they can be keenly entertaining. He brings the Bible to life and rekindles the fires of ancient passions. He offers practical application of revelatory insights of faith, visions, and spiritual determination for modern-day living. He does it all in ways that will entertain, motivate and enlighten.

“So he took him (general Abner) aside from his own followers, as if he would speak with him in private, and brought him into a void (secluded) place of the gate, having himself nobody with him but his brother Abishai; then he drew his sword, and smote him in the groin; upon which Abner died by this treachery of general Joab, which, as he said himself, was in the way of punishment for his brother Asahel, whom Abner smote and slew as he was pursuing after him in the battle of Hebron, but as the truth was, out of his fear of losing his command of the army to Abner, and also his dignity with the king, and lest he should be deprived of those advantages, and out of the dread that Abner would replace him and obtain the first rank in David’s court.

“By these examples anyone may learn how many and how great instances of wickedness men will venture upon for the sake of getting money and authority, and that they may not fail of either of them; for as when they are desirous of obtaining the same, they acquire them by ten thousand evil practices; so when they are afraid of losing them, they get them confirmed to them by practices much worse than the former, as if no other calamity so terrible could befall them as the failure of acquiring so exalted an authority; and when they have acquired it, and by long custom found the sweetness of it, the losing it again: and since this last would be the heaviest of all afflictions they all of them contrive and venture upon the most difficult actions, out of the fear of losing the same. But let it suffice that I have made these short reflections upon that subject.” – Titus Flavius Josephus, first-century Romano-Jewish scholar, historian, and hagiographer.

Award Winning Author And Keynote Speaker Joseph Ganci Uses Modern-Day Revelations Redefining Old Testament Revelations To Entertain, Motivate, And Enlighten

In Ganci’s innovative and highly praised novel, ‘Gideon The Sound and the Glory,’ book lovers find themselves in the very midst of ancient conflicts, only to be swept away with an entirely fresh perspective on mystical teachings found in scripture – now living lessons – filled with action and adventure.

Joseph Ganci, old testament revelationsPeople dismiss the Church’s ancient teachings for many reasons. Some people believe that the Old Testament has little or no relevance in this fast-paced digital age. Others believe everything that could be said has been said. For some those old, well-worn stories from the Bible have lost their appeal. Many stories are viewed as supernatural tales told children.

Award-winning author and keynote speaker Joseph Ganci believes that Biblical accounts can be more than just dusty history – it can be passionately entertaining. He brings the Bible to life and rekindles the fires of ancient storytelling. He offers practical application of revelatory insights of faith, visions, and spiritual determination for modern-day living. He does it all in ways that will entertain, motivate and enlighten.

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 geography.

* The creative arch is revelatory in its timing and issues.

* The research is concrete, firmly rooted in customs, languages, and traditions.

“I wrote my book,” Ganci stated, “as one day I was reading the Bible. 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 camel cavalry. Gideon would drive the enemy like hounds to the hunter. A long-held mystery started to unravel, and with that, I was off to the races.”

“Fresh insights are unearthed when discovering hidden connecting details found in ancient scripture. These viewpoints are only revealed when man’s ability has sufficiently grown, and that he is now ready to receive them. My speaking goals are to entertain, motivate and to have the audience leave enlightened and satisfied.”

Ganci believes that Old Testament revelations are the Word of God. At the same time, that many needful details remained buried until the information age of discovery made them obvious and visible to the naked eye. These insights create a middle ground of understanding. As a dedicated and highly motivated researcher, he proposes there are many undiscovered nuggets of spiritual gold in the original manuscripts. He shines a new light on ancient texts and removes the black or white argument of the all-or-nothing question of modern-day revelations. He is adept at untangling the philosophical and theological human-made knots. And he gives us an opportunity to take a fresh look at what some consider to be foregone conclusions.

Readers of ‘Gideon The Sound And The Glory’ will learn about the Jewish Tabernacle, the Ark of the Covenant, the mysterious Golden Ephod, how, and why, David found himself at his battle with Goliath, and much, much more. This work illuminates the dark corners of scripture while engaging readers in a gripping narrative.

Joseph Ganci was recently chosen as one of ’50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading’ in the 2017 Book Awards. ‘Gideon: The Sound and the Glory’ has received rave reviews from readers and reviewers alike. A recent reviewer stated, “Joseph Ganci’s prose is arresting, peppered with fantastic imagery and succinct descriptions of plot, characters, and setting.

Surprising Modern-Day Revelations Redefine Old Testament Revelations In ‘Gideon The Sound And The Glory’ By Award-Winning Author Joseph Ganci

In Ganci’s innovative and highly praised novel, book lovers find themselves in the very midst of ancient conflicts, only to be swept away with an entirely fresh perspective on mystical teachings found in scripture – now living lessons – filled with action and adventure.

Joseph Ganci, old testament revelationsRegarding the possibility of modern-day revelation, there are but two conflicting schools of thought. Catholics and Protestants hold that no modern-day revelations are possible. The Jewish faith, along with the Quakers, the Pentecostals, Charismatics and Latter-day Saints hold fast to the opposing opinion, trusting that modern-day revelation is a certainty. The arguments have been going on for centuries. Both groups remain grounded in their deeply rooted positions.

So, did God give men everything they needed to know such a long time ago? Or does revelation and the prophetic process continue into our modern day? It is a troublesome question, for both camps have millions of followers. But the question is not “Which BELIEF is correct?” The real question is instead, “What is TRUE, and what is God’s will?”

Joseph Ganci, the award-winning author of ‘Gideon The Sound And the Glory,’ believes that Old Testament revelations are the Word of God. At the same time, that many needful details remained buried until the information age of discovery made them obvious and visible to the naked eye. These insights create a middle ground of understanding. As a dedicated and highly motivated researcher, he proposes there are many undiscovered nuggets of spiritual gold in the original manuscripts. Shining a new light on ancient texts and removing the black or white argument of the all-or-nothing question of modern-day revelations. Untangling the philosophical and theological human-made knots. And it gives us an opportunity to take a fresh look at what some consider to be traditional forgone conclusions.

“My goal was to make Gideon come alive, now and for all time,” Ganci stated. “To accomplish this feat, it had to be entertaining, inspiring, and enlightening. Mysteries long since hidden came alive, line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little and there a little, until ancient puzzle pieces began to fit together. It was like going to the top of a mountain every day where no one had ever gone before. The more I pressed on to the rocky summit more and more was uncovered. Eventually, the work was accompanied by visions and dreams. Scripture study was essential as my understanding kept expanding. Serendipity and synchronicity went beyond normal coincidence. Seemingly unrelated incidents became timely in the opening of new horizons and in the very moment when required. The commentaries of noted scholars were made available and I could cherry pick the wisdom of the ages. Gideon’s saga is about unsung heroes and murderous villains that leap to life and blaze onto the pages of revelation. I press to give this work wings, but my timing and God’s timing does not always agree. This work is a classic and will remain so through future generations. This work was 101% collaboration with God. God did 101%, and I did all the rest. I have dedicated the novel to God, and by doing so, it remains a labor of love.”

Readers of ‘Gideon The Sound And The Glory’ will learn about the Jewish Tabernacle, the Ark of the Covenant, the mysterious Golden Ephod, how, and why, David found himself at his battle with Goliath, and much, much more.

Modern Day Revelations Explain Old Testament Revelations In ‘Gideon The Sound And The Glory’ By Award-Winning Author Joseph Ganci

In Ganci’s innovative and highly praised novel, book lovers find themselves in the very midst of ancient conflicts, only to be swept away with an entirely fresh perspective on mystical teachings found in scripture – now living lessons – filled with action and adventure.

Did God give men everything they needed to know a long time ago?

Or does revelation and the prophetic process continue into our modern day?

Is Scripture a set of understandings that must be blindly followed without the agreement of wisdom or reason?

Or does Scripture serve as a tool that enlightens minds of every age in a never-ending progression?

Some understandings have been routinely accepted for centuries by churches and organizations that hold to certain closed-minded agendas. But, is it a black and white issue?

Is it a one-or-the-other kind of question, with no in-between – no gray areas?

Joseph Ganci, award-winning author of ‘Gideon The Sound And The Glory’ believes there are many undiscovered nuggets of spiritual gold in the original manuscripts, thereby removing this conflict once and for all.

Ganci stated that “Fresh insights are unearthed when discovering hidden connecting details found in ancient scripture. These viewpoints are only revealed when man’s ability has sufficiently grown, and that he is now ready to receive them.”

“A thousand years from now,” Ganci stated, “our folklore will confirm that as a society we all took advice, knowledge, and direction from an all-knowing Oracle named Google.”

“I think that this is the time of the ‘quickening,’ meaning that man’s complete store of knowledge will continue to double. It is a time when a well-structured question can bring to light, deep wells of understanding, and a variety of possibilities long since hidden in dust and shadows.

“The earliest comments attached to biblical writings were found soon after its original publication. Modern explanation of the Old Testament, however, is harder still when considering the vast amount of time between passages. Attempting to connect the many missing dots, dates, and dashes from well-worn scriptures correctly is a massive undertaking. It is a stretch to follow the complicated ideas, language, and culture of such a bygone race of people. Making sense of their spoken customs, going over every little hint of a shadow is especially challenging. Connecting the many puzzle pieces from olden times that has been combed over by one hundred and fifty generations of scholars is especially daring. Fragments of seemingly unrelated events naturally stitch and hem together, here a little, and there a little, thus creating a patchwork of connecting threads that become a bright, attractive picture, insightful in its presentation, and yet simple and easy to imagine.”

This work is a one hundred and one percent collaboration with God. God did one hundred and one percent, and I did all the rest.”

Readers of ‘Gideon The Sound And The Glory’ will learn about the Jewish Tabernacle, the Ark of the Covenant, the mysterious Golden Ephod, how, and why, David found himself at his battle with Goliath, and much, much more. This work illuminates the dark corners of scripture while engaging readers in a gripping narrative.

Ganci recently announced that the complete Kindle version will be available as a no-charge download for five days, March 12 through March 16, 2018.

Author Joseph Ganci Announces New Spiritual Book Detailing Epic Adventures, ‘Gideon: The Sound and The Glory’

Author Joseph Ganci Announces New Spiritual Book Detailing Epic Adventures, ‘Gideon: The Sound and The Glory’

In this innovative debut, book lovers find themselves in the very midst of ancient conflicts, only to be swept away with an entirely fresh perspective on mystical teachings found in scripture – now living lessons – filled with action.

Author Joseph Ganci has announced the release of his spiritually inspiring book, ‘Gideon: The Sound and the Glory.’

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.

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.
