I absolutely love Lynn Austin's books. Does anyone know where I can get a copy of The Lord Is My Salvation?

I am reading Lynn Austin's newest book, and it is excellent! I should be done but I am a teacher and stay pretty busy! I love the Chronicle of the Kings series! It helps make the old testament more real life and more interesting to read when you think about it like she does!

I've read all of Lynn Austin's books that she has released except for Faith of my Fathers--still waiting for it to become avaiable at the library. I actually discovered her randomly, picking up one of her books because I had nothing else to read. Now she is my favorite author! I actually finished All She Ever Wanted today (really good book!), but my favorite book from her is Eve's Daughters. It's a powerful emotionally gripping tale. However her Chronicles of the Kings series is what interested me--history has never been so real to me before as it is in the pages of her books. She's working on another stand-alone novel according to her newsletter. I know that it will end up in my hands before long...can't wait for her future releases!

I have just discovered Lynn Austin's work. This book was donated to our school library and I took it home to read. I loved Eli. What a wonderful mentor to a young Caroline who was willing to do God's work even when she knew what she might have to sacrifice. Eli made her think about what she really believed. There was so much Civil War history and it was used in a very special way to bring Caroline to a crisis of belief. We all face similar tests in today's world. I will watch for more of her encouraging work.

I just finished this book. This is the first book by Lynn Austin that I have read, and I am hooked. I am an avid reader, but usually the books that I choose do not enlighten my Christian walk. I will search for and read all of her books. The characters are so real, the events are believable, but more than that; it makes me want to understand the lives of the women in my family more than ever. What a waste it is when we fail to try to understand the people around us and shut people out of our lives. I could not put the book down.

Take it from me! I was a person that did not like to read, now I am a reader! These books are excellent. I have read all 10 of her books so far. I am ready to read more.

I have read several of Lynn Austin's books, Wings of Refuge, Hidden Places, Candle in the Darkness and Fire by Night. She is one of the best Christian authors I have read. She ranks right up there with Francine Rivers! I love the characters she writes, they are flawed and have weaknesses! I have read so many Christian authors that make their characters too perfect and strong. I appreciate characters that show their weaknesses along with their strengths.

I've read Gods and Kings, Song of Redemption, and now The Strength of His Hand. I am going to read Faith of My Fathers when it comes out. I am really enjoying the series. While searching for more books by Ms. Austin, I found some titles that were not on her website. The descriptions of the books seem to be similiar to The Chronicles of the Kings series. The names of the books are the Lord is My Strength, The Lord is My Song, The Lord is My Salvation, My God's Father, and among the Gods. Can you shed some light on this for me? Are these Ms. Austin's books with the same content, but different covers? Or are they totally different? Or are they written by another author all together?

It was a thought provoking jouney reading this particular book. As a West Indian of Africian ancestry, slavery was and is a part of my heritage. The emotions I had to deal with was surprising because I claim to be a christian. The pashion and graphic brutality my fore fathers endured and survived attest to the indominable will of the human spirit. A spirit that not even the instution of slavery with its brutality was able to destroy.
Thank you for showing the world the injustice, inhumanty and the horror that one race of people have inflected on another.

A Light to My Path is SUCH a great book!!! It taught me a lot about how us white folks treated blacks back then. It also makes me ashamed that some of those slave owners/traders might me my ancestors. I realized how unfair blacks were treated back then. I mean jeez they're just like whites.they're human beings! I think that blacks were treated unjustly! I think that everyone should be treated equally. That's what the law says right? Actually, I'm not really sure,but-it's a shame that some people are still being discriminated against today. Maybe not as bad physically but as bad emotionally-Charlie
