The sideshow atmosphere of modern-day political shenanigans and constant power struggles appeal to us for many reasons. They entice and captivate our sensual desires in the same manner as our favorite dramas, thrillers, and action / adventure movies. Why is this so? It is because both political chicanery and epic movies allow us to live vicariously through both hero and villain from a position of relative safety while skirting the fringes of reality on the other side of our internet connections.

These types of gripping human dramas have been playing out since Biblical times. While political dramas and action/adventure themes may not be our first thought when considering stories from the Old Testament, author Joseph Ganci has managed to turn the little-known account of Gideon into a Bible-based novel that reads like a modern-day major motion picture. He shows us that Biblical stories can be more than just dusty history - they can be keenly entertaining. He brings the Bible to life and rekindles the fires of ancient passions. He offers practical application of revelatory insights of faith, visions, and spiritual determination for modern-day living. He does it all in ways that will entertain, motivate and enlighten. His readers attest to his skill and his ability to do just that. The public reviews for 'Gideon' say it all:

"Joseph Gauci’s prose is arresting, peppered with wonderful 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. The book explores powerful spiritual and political themes, capturing the conflicts and the dynamics of life within the community of God's chosen people. Gideon: The Sound and the Glory will appeal to fans of political thrillers, adventure, and conflict-driven stories that are laced with intense action. I was hugely entertained by the writing and the plot. A real page-turner."

"Joseph Ganci takes a story that is recounted through just a few select chapters in the Old Testament book of Judges and creates a beautiful, strikingly visual novelization. In this book, the author shows himself in as a researcher, a Biblical word-scholar, and a master narrator."

"The tale itself has a great table to set. Mr. Ganci does this with style, and then lights the match so that the action (like a Harry Potter book) carries the reader through the entire second half."

"Reading has always been a real escape for me. I remember back reading books that one could not put down until the end of the final chapter: "The Godfather," Books by Dan Brown, The Harry Potter series and others. This book, Gideon, The Sound and the Glory, is one of those books that one can't put down . . . I hope that this book is made into a movie soon."

"The author, Joseph Ganci, a biblical scholar, visionary, prophetic interpreter and great storyteller . . . His book Gideon: The Sound and the Glory takes the reader on a poetic journey of exciting adventure, intrigue, romance, deceit, murder, honor, betrayal, prophesy and war. Would liken his book to episodes in a Star Wars movie."

"I enjoyed the book very much. Joseph Ganci has brought to life an Old Testament story. What is only a couple of chapters the Book of Judges, becomes a novel of over 350 pages. The characters in the novel come to life with all the emotions, feelings, and anxieties of real-life beings. The pages are full of intrigue, romance, deceit, murder, honor, betrayal, prophecy, war; all the makings of a first-class epic thriller."

Many more reviews are available at Amazon.

Ganci 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.

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.

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 Gauci’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. The book explores powerful spiritual and political themes, capturing the conflicts and the dynamics of life within the community of God's chosen people. Gideon: The Sound and the Glory will appeal to fans of political thrillers, adventure, and conflict-driven stories laced with intense action." Other reviewers have used phrases such as "riveting," "amazing" "deftly crafted" and "highly recommended."
