Text - The Stones of Gilgal, an epic series of Biblical novels
Golden sword with C.L. Smith on the blade and scabbard
By C.L. Smith

An old story emerges from the mists of ancient biblical history as a freshly told epic saga. Moving forward in his plan to defeat the stranglehold of Evil on planet Earth, Yahweh freed the Exodus generation from the bondage of Egyptian slavery with a magnificent display of power. Their mission was to free Canaan from the grip of darkness and set up a center of goodness and light—but they failed miserably. Now a new generation of untested, youthful warriors fills the ranks of Joshua’s army. Can they cross the Jordan and dislodge the dark powers entrenched in their ancient homeland?

“I don’t know when I’ve read work by an author who can make you feel and experience the sliminess of sin and the pure essence of God in all his white-light holiness. I wouldn’t have thought it possible to put the reader right in the middle of Old Testament happenings, but C. L. Smith has done it.”
