Book Review - Stone Tables
4 out of 5 Stars. This was a book given to Jen by Pete/Sheralie for Christmas last year and she recommended that I read. It is a 'behind the scenes' look at the life of Moses from Egypt to Sinai and beyond. I appreciated the personalities that Card created for each of the characters and the plausible explanation for events that happened. He portrayed Aaron as a jealous little brother of Moses, spending his life struggling against his natural tendencies to question or second guess his older brother and prophet. It is this character flaw that eventually leads to the golden calf episode at the foot of Mt. Sinai and the breaking of the stone tablets.
