About our Book
II Kings 19:35 “That night the angel of the Lord went out and put to death a hundred and eighty-five thousand men in the Assyrian camp. When the people got up the next morning – there were all the dead bodies!” The Holy Bible, New International Version, 1984
The Black Angel of the Lord addresses one of history’s biggest mysteries – what transpired at Jerusalem in 701 B.C.E. The Assyrian army encircled Jerusalem in a lengthy siege, threatening death and destruction. Then one morning the people of Jerusalem awoke and found thousands of dead Assyrian soldiers outside their city walls. This event changed the history of the world, and our book theorizes how it may have happened.
In three strangers from three differing cultures are on a collision course that serves to shape the history of the world. They are: Ramtouses, a young African driven by a destiny dream; Holofernes, a general in King Sennacherib’s mighty Assyrian army; and Judith, a noble Hebrew woman who devotes her life and soul to her God, Yahweh.
The strong forces of historic military dominance, religious beliefs, and tribal superstitions combine with the devastation wrecked upon Africa by prolonged drought and set the stage for an incredible adventure.
