Movies based on Old Testament biblical events have been with us since the beginning of filmmaking. Over the past decades, we've seen films such as 'The Ten Commandments,' 'The Story of David,' 'The Book of Ruth,' 'Noah' and a host of others. Few are true to ancient events, missing critical connections and certain vital details. Most are highly stylized versions of Biblical dramas, with extremely theatrical storylines that push the envelope of credibility for the sake of sensationalism.

Joseph Ganci, award-winning author 'Gideon, The Sound and the Glory' takes a ground-breaking and revelatory path in his quest to bring the awe-inspiring story of Gideon to life and ultimately to film. He believes that connecting facts are far more enchanting than loosely fitting fantasies. He works within a framework of an engaging and dramatized fiction that, while exceedingly rich in detail, remains faithful to uphold spiritual principles. He bases his work on three primary pillars:

* The rock-solid cornerstone is historical biblical geography.

* The creative arch is revelatory in its timing and issues.

* The research is concrete, firmly rooted in customs, languages, and traditions.

Ganci fills in the blanks with rock-solid research and prophetic revelations. It is a style that has allowed him to create breakthrough approaches that are exciting and breathtaking while remaining within the limits of believable biblical teachings.

"An early editor and accomplished ghostwriter confided in me that when he read my detailed depiction of Gideon’s second and final battle that he was transfixed by the vision," Ganci stated. He said, 'I could see the scene vividly play out with curtains of fire, low lying fog, and the determination of faith only known to the nearly dead and the dying.' He was inspired, and revealed to me that, 'It was as if that fierce battle had already been made into a major motion picture.'

"The Bible is sparse as to the particular details of that battle. The Bible account had three hundred starving men nearly all but spent and perilously near death. Gideon and the 300 are camped in a desert wilderness void of food and water. Their prize is to live or to die by giving the victory to the will of God. The enemy is an army of fifteen thousand battle-hardened warriors that are fortified on a secure plateau. What is known is that Gideon and his men prevail and that the battle concluded before the sun came up. Gideon’s men take the spoil of life-sustaining bread, 43lbs of gold earnings or 1700-shekel weight of gold from the fallen enemy soldiers. The two Midian kings are captured alive providing evidence of both victory and trophy. The brutal battle’s reward is the destruction of a sworn enemy of Israel and the settling of scores for a long overdue and simmering blood feud."

'Gideon, The Sound, and the Glory,' Mysteries long hidden in ancient shadows now leap to life blazing unto the pages of revelation. Details that link passages, peoples, and places are the most exciting part of the storytelling process. Details give possibilities a firm foundation as bones give form and strength to living flesh. Details long since lost or misunderstood, now ring true, giving texture, and breath, to long-forgotten gems of perception resurrected from ruins, dust, and ashes.

Ganci believes that Old Testament revelations are the Word of God. At the same time, that many needful details remained buried until the information age of discovery made them obvious and visible to the naked eye. These insights create a middle ground of understanding. As a dedicated and highly motivated researcher, he proposes there are many undiscovered nuggets of spiritual gold in the original manuscripts. He shines a new light on ancient texts and removes the black or white argument of the all-or-nothing question of modern-day revelations. He is adept at untangling the philosophical and theological human-made knots. And he gives us an opportunity to take a fresh look at what some consider to be foregone conclusions.

Readers of 'Gideon The Sound and the Glory' will learn about the Jewish Tabernacle, the Ark of the Covenant, the mysterious Golden Ephod, how, and why, David found himself at his battle with Goliath, and much, much more. This work illuminates the dark corners of scripture while engaging readers in a gripping narrative.

Joseph Ganci was recently chosen as one of '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading' in the 2017 Book Awards. 'Gideon: The Sound and the Glory' has received rave reviews from readers and reviewers alike. A recent reviewer stated, "Joseph Ganci’s prose is arresting, peppered with fantastic imagery and succinct descriptions of plot, characters, and setting. The themes are masterfully created, and they are woven into the story in a way that allows the reader to enjoy both the inspiration the story offers and the accompanying action.

Gideon: The Sound and the Glory will appeal to fans of political thrillers, adventure, and conflict-driven stories laced with intense action."
