ARAM – Foreshadowing the Covenant
A great cat is stalking Aram’s people and he must lead them into a new land before it strikes again. His wife never tires of asking leading questions while his trusted friend is contemplating treachery. Challenges from within and without propel Aram into a future he could never have foreseen as he battles slave raiders, rescues a defenseless clan and learns the truth about a curse which reaches out to him from the long dead past. ARAM is an epic story of a man’s journey from dark shadows towards faith filled light as he learns to trust in the unnamed God.
Ishtar is a youth burdened with a violent father who has offered his soul to the dark spirits of power and corruption for the accomplishment of his personal glory. As Ishtar breaks away from his father’s path he must face the dark forces within himself who, though hidden, still tug at his soul. He must forge his own trail through the fires of repentance so that his sons may lead lives of honor and peace.
Onias is the leader of a simple Grasslands Clan which has lived in quiet peace for generations. They are a productive people who have learned the arts of farming and raising animals. Enjoying lives of peaceful security with strong traditions they are not at all prepared for the evil attack which is planned for them. When the truth of the danger is made clear to him, Onias chooses to plead for peace at the cost of their very village and that decision foretells their doom to a man who cares nothing for tradition and learning.
Neb is the evil leader of Ishtar’s people and the man who must be defeated at all costs. It takes the joint efforts of Aram’s warriors, and an adopted clan member named Eoban, who comes to the rescue of the innocent despite their own reluctance to do battle. The Clans of Aram, Ishtar and Onias collide in a tumultuous encounter in which the choices made in peace must be ratified in battle. But the biggest battle of all yet awaits Aram as he encounters the sorrows of life in the form of a deformed daughter, a debilitating injury, challenges to his authority and the never ending stalker of old age and death. He faces these challenges with the wisdom gathered in the memory of an old man, a transformed wife, and undying faith in the mystery of his Creator.
