Biblical fiction is very popular among readers right now. I asked for your input about the genre on social media recently, and on this episode, we discuss what you like and what you dislike about it. Below are links and descriptions for some of the books I mention on the program.
Seal of the Sand Dweller by Regina Rushing
A slave rises from a garrison prison to save Egypt, but first, he must save the king.
There are things more dangerous than interpreting the dream of a sovereign, like convincing him of corruption among his top officials.
Integrity has its price, one Yoseph has already paid at the hands of jealous brothers and his master's wife.
On the whim of a king, he is raised to inconceivable heights as second in command of the realm. And with the authority of a king's seal, this time, integrity might cost him everything...even his life.

From Book 1: Gods and Kings is the story of King Hezekiah, heir to the throne of King David. When his evil father plots to sacrifice him, Hezekiah's mother, Abijah, searches frantically for a way to save him. But only two men can help her, and neither of them seems trustworthy. In a time and place engulfed by violence, treachery, and infidelity to Yahweh, Abijah and her son must discover the one true Source of strength if they are to save themselves and their country.

Building Benjamin by Barbara M. Britton
Love Grows Where God Grafts the Tender Shoot. Naomi desires to dance well enough to catch the eye of a wealthy landowner. Her father needs a substantial bride price due to the deaths of her brothers at the hands of the tribe of Benjamin. But when Benjamites raid the Ephraimite feast and capture young girls, Naomi is bound and carried from her home by Eliab, a troubled shepherd who needs a wife. As Naomi awaits rescue, she finds Eliab has a strong faith in God and a just reason for abducting her. A reason that affects all the tribes of Israel. The future of the tribe of Benjamin hangs in the balance, but if Naomi follows her heart and stays with Eliab to rebuild his lineage, she must forfeit her family and become a traitor to her own tribe.
