From Publishers Weekly

In her Lineage of Grace series, the award-winning Rivers successfully explored the lives of five biblical women. Here, in the first of her Sons of Encouragement series, she turns her attention to the life of Aaron with less stellar results. A jealous Aaron grows up in the shadow of his younger brother Moses. Yet when God calls him to assist Moses in leading the enslaved Israelites to freedom, Aaron finds love for his brother. In the wilderness, disastrous disobedience to God follows, and Aaron must come face-to-face with the knowledge of his own unworthiness and the sins of the Israelites. "It would take a bigger miracle than plagues and parting the Red Sea to change the hearts of these people," he realizes. When he's chosen as high priest, the daily sacrifices Aaron makes torment him, and he dreams of fire and blood. The first portion of the book feels flat, as if Rivers may have relied too heavily on the scriptural text. Her ability to weave sexual tension throughout her novels has been one of the talents of this former general market romance writer, but she fails to take advantage of several opportunities here. By the last third of the book, however, the narrative improves, as Rivers convincingly envisions the emotions and intrigue that surely permeated the biblical events. Rivers is a deservedly popular author, and her loyal fans will likely embrace her new series despite some shortcomings.

The Priest is the first book in a new companion series to A Lineage of Grace. Each novella peers into the life of one of five biblical men (such as Aaron, Jonathan, Silas) who stood behind the great heroes of faith.

In The Priest you'll meet Moses' brother Aaron, the first high priest of Israel. How will Aaron support Moses while he struggles with being satisfied with God's plan for his own life? Be inspired by how this seemingly secondary character plays a key role in supporting his leader and impacting the faith for eternity.

4.0 von 5 Sternen fine biographical biblical fiction 28. April 2004
Von Harriet Klausner - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
At three years of age a jealous Aaron misses his mama who seems to spend all her time with one year old brother Moses. His older sister Miriam tries to provide solace, but that fails to ease the ache in the little boy's heart perhaps because she too misses her mama. Three years later, a heartbroken mama tells her two oldest children that the daughter of the Pharaoh loves Moses and he will live with her as his mother.
Years later, God speaks to Aaron to go to the wilderness and help Moses lead the enslaved Israelites to the Promised Land. Putting aside his jealousy, Aaron becomes Moses' right hand man as they seek freedom. Over time he becomes the First High priest only to watch his flock fail God. Though feeling undeserving of his role and a failure, Aaron in his low key manner encourages his people to properly worship the Lord. While performing the seemingly impossible but critical tasks without acclaim, he also finds a brotherly love to his charismatic younger brother, leader of the wandering Hebrews.
Starting with Aaron, Francine Rivers, in her Sons of Encouragement series, is telling the tales of five influential individuals who in the background of a charismatic superstar shaped religion. The first novel, THE PRIEST, is a biblical fiction work fans will enjoy though the book starts off a bit slowly as readers are introduced to the key players as described in the Torah. This historical fiction novel turns into a deep character study in the second half of the novel as the audience feels the emotions especially self doubts, disbeliefs and concerns during forty years of wandering.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well weaved tale 3. September 2004
Von Timothy Daiss, M.A. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
In "The Priest," author Francine Rivers brings together an oft quoted/written about story (the Exodus story and subsequent events) and brings new life to them. First, I note that she does, indeed, rely heavily on Scripture (I state this to nullify the Publisher's Weekly review and criticism about this). Moreover, this actually adds to the story's authenticity. Rivers also sheds light on the Exodus events that few if any other writers have done before. Namely, she tells them through the eyes, not of Moses, but of his younger brother Aaron. In doing so she does a service to people who enjoy reading fiction and those who are serious students of Scripture.

For those interested in applying the life lessons from Aaron, she includes a study guide in the back of the book.

In all, it is an enjoyable read, and often an inspiring one also. Well worth, the price of admission.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Priest 11. Oktober 2006
Von Monty Rainey - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is the first of this series by Francine Rivers that I have read, and though it was a good read, I felt it fell a little short of the high standard she has set for herself. I guess the adage that you cant hit a homerun every time holds true. Perhaps my disappointment comes form the subject itself. The subject being Aaron, who, in many ways could be considered a poster child of Biblical failure. They Bible presents Aaron as somewhat of a "side kick". He was Moses' Tonto, if you will. And certainly one of the countless perplexing questions I intend to ask God when I stand before the throne is, "Why Aaron?" Why was he chosen to be the High Priest of the Jews? He was certainly not a mature believer and seemed a rather bad choice for the position. Was he the most prepared candidate? Surely Caleb, or even on good days, Joshua, was more qualified.

At any rate, I digress. The book is meticulously accurate, as with all of River's works, but failed to have that page turning passion that her books normally provide. It follows the life of Aaron from childhood to death and Rivers clearly illustrates Aaron's many failures and weaknesses along the way.

I'll certainly read the other books in this series. I just hope to see a return of the type narrative I've come to expect from the very gifted writer.

5.0 von 5 Sternen ahhhh-mazing 17. Juni 2005
Von Destiny Sue - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
this book was definitely a work of art by francine rivers. her writings continue to amaze me as I read her books. the priest was an amazing depiction of the story of Aaron, brother of Moses. It gave a new perspective on looking at the characters from a "real" standpoint rather than just historical figures. She gave them personality. I loved this book, and I definitely suggest it as a must-read!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Be patient, it's well worth the read 6. März 2006
Von Farm Girl - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I have to admit, I have read all but 2 of Francine's books and this one took me the longest to get through. To me, it was slow and redundant, not necessarily something I attribute to Francine's writing, but more so to the biblical account of the story itself.

The repetition comes from the Isrealite's repeated loss of faith in God, which they seemed rather quick to acquire; and the severe complaints and actions that they take in disobedience to Him as a result. I found myself thinking..."again!", and then, "Again!" regarding their blatant rebellion, over and over, when reading this book. God must have been annoyed with His people (granted, the word Isreal does mean "to struggle with God"). Moses and Aaron really had their work cut out for them with these "stiff-necked" people, and there inlies the beauty of this book. The reward comes in realizing what Aaron went through over the span of his life. And I think it serves the Biblical account well in depicting the constant rebellion of the Isrealites during the first few years of their journey out of Egypt, which may not be so easily picked up on by reading a few chapter of the Bible at a time.

When I read this story in scripture, it is spread over so many chapters and books that Aaron's story seems woven throughout and somewhat thinned, therefore, I appreciate that Francine brought the events of his life together in this book.
