Publisher's Summary

It Takes Men of Giant Faith to Face the Giants of Canaan. 

After 400 years of slavery in Egypt, the Israelites are prepared to enter the land of Canaan.   

There’s only one problem: It’s crawling with giants.   

They’re the Seed of the Serpent with many clans: Anakim, Rephaim, Zuzim, and others.   

Two Israelites, Joshua and Caleb, have the faith to lead Israel against these monsters.   

Their first target: King Og of Bashan, the last of the mighty Rephaim giants.   

But the goddess he worships has plans to annihilate Israel with an evil occultic army.   

The War of the Seed is climaxing in this first of two companion novels, including Caleb Vigilant. Joshua Valiant is the fifth book of the series Chronicles of the Nephilim, a biblical epic story of the fallen angelic Watchers and their offspring, the Nephilim giants of Genesis 6.   

Written by respected Christian and best-selling Biblical author, Brian Godawa.

Good book but the Audible file is messed up.

Any additional comments?

Starting in Chapter 6 (marked as 9 by the chapter marks) the books starts to skip around and longer you go, seems to get worst. Book needs to be fixed. Happens in all versions. If it gets fixed, love to change the review.

Can't wait for the next one!

What made the experience of listening to Joshua Valiant the most enjoyable?

The prologue which explains the use of the Bible verses and biblical archeology/history. I understand so much more and it makes the author 's story so believable. In his first book I wasn't sure I would care for the author's narration.but now I feel he is the right person and his voice has become familiar. I will investigate other books he has written outside this series.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Joshua Valiant?

The strong belief of Caleb.

What about Brian Godawa’s performance did you like?

His ability to voice each character.

Who was the most memorable character of Joshua Valiant and why?

'Ole grumbling Moses. I see him in a more human light and have a better appreciation of what he did for the Israelites.

Any additional comments?

Recommend this series to anyone that wants fiction to relate to and share the biblical history.

Simply Brilliant

This series is amazing. Literally the most engaging novels I’ve ever read. The story is so rich in heroism and godliness that it titillates the mind. Makes me appreciate that authors of Christian fiction still appreciate their male audience.

They just get better and better.

Another great story in making both biblical and spiritual characters come to life. The strategy, integrity, grit and faith of Joshua illustrates through this book. Also, when you read Joshua 2:12 you see Rahab's heart, and then in this book you see what Jesus ment when He said He came for the lost Luke 19:10.
It Makes you think about there are SOME lost but chosen (Acts 10:41) people out there. But, because either through circumstances and or wrong choices they are where they are, just waiting to hear about Jesus' love for them. This is the inter-woven Sovereignty you see in Brian's books. Don't just read them for the entertainment, read them for the Lord to show you something.

Another fun & informative novel in this series

Biblical characters and their contemporary enemy characters of the time well woven into a fascinating plausible edventure. A unique way of exposing the subversion of the culture from the Godly to the ungodly down through the centuries. The educational tidbits woven into Godawa's story series make them so very interesting to read or listen to. He puts a lot of passion into his narration skills.

Joshua Valiant

Bible stories come alive

I love how Brian Godawa is able to make these stories come alive! I wish he would have left out the more graphic details of sex and violence he has begun to include in the later books.
