Judea has always been the crossroads and battlefield of contending nations. It is no less so in this biblical time of the Judges. Uriah Tarhund's Hittite home is destroyed by invading Greeks. His dying father tells him to go south to seek a Canaanite named Sisera. "He will help you. For my sake. . . ." Uriah is plunged into the tumult of an uneasy Judea. When he saves a young boy from being sacrificed to Moloch, he is given succor for a time by the Hebrews. Later, he finds Sisera and joins him in war against these same people. When the Canaanites are defeated, the young Hittite has the opportunity to come to peace with himself, the Hebrew people and their God.

Review: Hittite Warrior

User Review  - Mathias Seiwert - Goodreads

Fantastic book that I read out-loud to my ten year old daughter J. Started slowly, but built up momentum and interest. Superbly highlighted life in the Middle East in the 13th century BC Provided fascinating background/historical information to Bible accounts in the book of Judges. Read full review

About the author (1999)

The author has lived with her husband and two daughters most of her life in Charlotte, N.C. She became fascinated with the history of the area, called "A hornet's nest" by redcoats during the revolution. Trouble mentioned in the book is thought to have led to a Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence that preceeded the U.S. Declaration.
