Temples of Gold offers a fresh perspective on God’s people from the time of King Solomon to their return from exile. By using Old Testament narratives and imagined scenes, this novel follows four lesser-known Biblical characters and their experiences during this period. This is the final instalment of The Line of Shem trilogy, which builds up a comprehensive overview of the Old Testament and seeks to bring fresh insights to both new and established Bible readers. Through vivid storytelling, Temples of Gold is a captivating read that will deepen your understanding and appreciation of the Bible's rich history.
‘Once again, Corinne Brixton has vividly brought to life the world, events and people of ancient Israel. Her great skill is to do this by focusing in on the lives of actual people, ‘minor’ characters imaginatively fleshed out, persuasively and engagingly portrayed against an impeccably researched background. In doing so, and with a light touch, she airs some of the biggest questions: what is God’s meaning in the things that happen? And what might faithful people yet hope for?’ J. Gordon McConville, Professor Emeritus of Old Testament Theology, University of Gloucestershire
