    Florida Author Releases New Historical/Religious Fiction Novel – The Reluctant General

    Florida author, Herb Sennett is pleased to announce the release of his historical/religious fiction novel, The Reluctant General.

    Their world was falling apart. They had come to the land of the Canaanites to find a home where they could live in peace after years of slavery in Egypt. But, now the ancient Israelites faced opposition and persecution from a cruel and vicious king named Jabin and his cold-hearted commander of the army, Cisera. The persecution and hellacious taxation policies continued for over twenty years until a woman named Deborah and her reluctant hero led a rag-tag group of men to the rescue!

    The story of Deborah and Barak from the biblical book of Judges describes amazing courage and fortitude beyond modern comprehension. In this modern retelling of the old story, Herb Sennett brings to life the people of 1150 BC in such a way that their hopes, dreams, struggles, pain, and suffering help us face our own problems in the light of God’s willingness to help his people whenever they are threatened with extinction. The Jewish people of that day knew little of warfare and tactics, but they were able to defeat the most powerful army of the day and then conquer the most heavily defended city in the area. This novel tells of their struggle to live free of oppression and fear through their faith in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

    The Reluctant General is available in print and ebook format.

    About The Author:
    Herb Sennett has spent the last thirty years as a college professor (Palm Beach Atlantic College, Louisiana College, Southeastern University, and currently at Broward College and Palm Beach State College). He was trained in speech and drama education (B.S.E.) at Arkansas State University and holds master’s degrees in speech (M.A., University of Memphis) and theater (M.F.A., Florida Atlantic University) as well as a doctorate (Ph.D.) in theater awarded by the Louisiana State University.

    In 2010, Herb decided to bring his years of research, training, and ingenuity to a new creative effort: writing novels that are historically accurate as well as compelling and exciting to read. Herb believes that some of the greatest stories ever written are to be found in the pages of The Holy Bible as well as in the myths of ancient Greece; and it is these stories he wishes to share in a new and exciting way for the modern world.

    Herb writes, teaches, and lives in South Florida with his wife of more than forty-five years. They have two children and one grandson.
