(Bethany House) is the much-anticipated sequel to Don Hoesel’s Elisha’s Bones. “I got a lot of emails asking if there would be more Jack Hawthorne adventures,” Hoesel explains, “I was happy to do another.

And the brass serpent staff of Moses—the one that healed the Israelites after they were bitten by snakes that God had sent among them—fit the bill. The trick was to construct a plausible history for the staff that didn’t completely fly in the face of the more established legends—or the fact that the Bible says that Hezekiah actually destroyed it.”
