Have you wondered how they lived, where they trod, even what their flocks were like? Through Shepherd, Potter, Spy and the Star Namer, Peggy Consolver has done her best to help us better understand the plight of the Gibeonite people as they lived day to day.
Shepherd, Potter, Spy and the Star Namer by Peggy Miracle Consolver tells the story of the Gibeonite people. The story is centered around a young shepherd boy named Keshub. Keshub fights hard to keep his flock and his people safe from harm. He longs for adventure outside of the grazing lands, to be someone more than he is.
