Serpent of Moses by Don Hoesel Book Review


“Just three years after the recovery of Elisha’s bones, Dr. Jack Hawthorne has given up teaching and resumed the practice of archaeology, although his frequent absences have put a strain on his relationship with Esperanza. Things heat up when Esperanza receives a call from an antiquities dealer with troubling news about Jack, and her fears are confirmed. Jack has gone to Libya in search of another biblical artifact: the Nehushtan, the serpent staff of Moses.

After Jack arrives in Libya, he soon discovers he isn’t the only one searching for the Nehushtan. Later, in attempting to steal it, he finds himself in the hands of a man who just might be his match. Jack and his friends must stay one step ahead of the Libyan government, an overambitious member of the Vatican hierarchy, and an Egyptian assassin–if they stand any chance of staying alive long enough to recover the staff.”
(Description from

Because I am a blog review book person, I get emails about books to review. I came across this book in an email, and after I read the description for this. I got super excited. Basically it sounded, to put it short, ‘Indiana Jones and the Staff of Moses’.

There was maybe a part of it that I felt could have been shortened a bit

It was such an exciting book to read! full of action, suspense, archaeology! It’s just like Indiana Jones, but it’s totally not! it’s an amazing read.  Since it is a Christian book, Don does a good job with it in here, but I think maybe there could be more in it? Anyways, if your an Indy fan and you like that kind of stuff, you definitely should give this book a read. I Didn’t know this was a sequel so I’m definitely going to be reading the other book now!
