Until My Name is Known by Sonya Contreras Book Review



The Exodus of the Jews from Egypt is a love story between God and His people. God woos His people to Himself as He prepares them to leave. Before leaving, God must fight Pharaoh for possession of His people.

See how God changes all people: some for the better, others not. None stay the same. How will He change you? Can you trust a God Who destroyed a nation before your eyes? Would you want Him as your Friend?
See God free His people from Egypt’s bonds before a watching world. Trace His Finger in the lives He touches. The time: 2450 BC. The Place: Old Kingdom of Egypt where Pharaoh is god. His people worship him. Israel’s God arrives. He challenges Pharaoh. His power touches all people. They must change. Some do not concede. They suffer. Others yield. They find freedom.

Until My Name Is Known brings all to see the one true God. Read it to see Him. Today’s historians and archaeologists puzzle over the fall of the Old Kingdom of Egypt, But the world at that time heard of God. The world knew that He is the Lord. His Name was proclaimed in all the earth.

My Thoughts:

I love historical Biblical Fiction. You have to realize that when you read a Biblical Fiction story they have to add in some unknown events and behind the scenes action we don’t see within God’s word. If you are disturbed by that then I wouldn’t recommend you to read this type of genre. There are some good and bad. I like to see how they follow the Biblical account that we already know. That is one of my pet peeves in this genre.

Sonya Contreras does an excellent job keeping the events in tack with the Word. She has done research of the era and has used the Hebrew language correctly. The characters came alive and she really drawn out the personality of the characters.

 Overall, I have enjoyed the story and it was a decent read. Some things I didn’t like and felt that some things are a bit too farfetched in the Hebrew culture. I was also disappointed not reading about Miriam in the story.

You will have to decide for yourself if you like this story.

Litfuse Publicity Group has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book. In no way was I asked to give a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
