A Man Called Blessed
Book of Caleb #2
the sequel to Blessed Child. Caleb is now a man of 25. The Ark of the Covenant is discovered at the monastery where he and his parents now reside. An Israeli woman and an Arab man are the other 2 main characters. Ends with the ark melting, the Arab dying and the Israeli probably going to marry Caleb.
The thrust of this book was that God no longer dwelt within an ark of wood and gold, but within the ark of our hearts. Not nearly as good as its predecessor.
