God of Chaos by R.M. Strong

In the lush and verdant land of Khemet, an ancient royal returns after a lifetime away. He brings with him a new god and the worst chaos the land has seen since the beginning of time. Young King Men-Kheper-Re is the only one on earth able to convince the gods to stop the wanton destruction of the land, but is unwilling.

Not even Hapiseneb, the young king’s most trusted advisor, is able to persuade him to allow this new god’s only request. A god himself, Men-Kheper-Re instead chooses to engage this newcomer in a battle of wits and wagers, choosing instead to replay the same contests fought millennia ago.

Everyone in the land of Khemet suffers from the gods’ battles. Far away from the palaces and politics, Yered, a foreigner, hears about this god of his ancestor–this god his fathers forsook that had promised them everything before abandoning them to slavery. The ancient royal promised a land flowing with milk and honey, but all Yered can see is mud and straw.

Children of the Magi: A Sacred History of the Kurds and the Persians by Christopher Crossan

Few societies on earth are as privileged as the Kurds and Persians. Unlike other nations and continents, the people living in Mesopotamia, the Zagros mountains, and Persia have witnessed some of the key historical events affecting all humanity which were recorded in the sacred writings of the Jews. These include the dispersion of Noah’s grandchildren, the building of the tower of Babel, the deportation of the Jews, the arrival of the prophet Daniel, the rise of Queen Esther, the commissioning of Ezra the high priest, and the visit of the Magi to Bethlehem. Four Medo-Persian kings – Darius, Cyrus, Xerxes, and Artaxerxes – are mentioned in these writings. Furthermore, the primeval events of history took place in Mesopotamia, including the creation of Adam and Eve, the garden of Eden, the fall of man, early human civilization, and the great flood. Sadly, today’s Kurds and Persians know little of their sacred history. This book is an attempt to re-introduce them to their rich inheritance, namely, the revelation of the Most High God, and to enlighten readers from other cultures who would also like an encounter with the central character of human history.

Of Such Is The Kingdom, PART I: Discontent and Insurrection: A Novel of the Christ and the Roman Empire (Of Such Is The Kingdom, A Novel of Biblical Times Book 1) by James Becher

Intriguing historical fiction novel of Biblical and Roman times developed from a prize-winning story. Powerful blending of stories of seekers from different walks of life who might have lived then.Step back to Ancient Jerusalem at the time of Christ and the Roman Empire, and ask: What could a cynical, non-conformist dry-goods salesman, a disgruntled blacksmith, and a musing mendicant all have in common? The answer: Down deep, they all seek something better. But will they find the true fulfillment they are seeking? The non-conformist, Manaheem, Herod’s foster brother, is hired by Herod to foment an insurrection against Pontius Pilate, whom he distrusts. Manaheem recruits the blacksmith, Barabbas, to be the insurrection leader, to the dismay of Barabbas’ Godly but fearful wife (when he finally tells her). The mendicant, an unfortunate but pensive young man named Timotheus, joins with an older beggar completely unsympathetic to his musings. Pontius Pilate sees himself as a weak ruler, but his wife pushes him to be stronger and to even take over Herod’s territory. Manaheem re-unites with his former wife, Claressa. In need of more money, he tries to blackmail Herod over the latter’s illicit affair, but fails. Read the book to see why. Herod’s palace is attacked, and suspecting Pilate, he tells Manaheem to go ahead with the mission. Will the insurrection succeed?
