The eBook paints a stunning portrait of ancient Biblical history. The new book is the third in the Empire of Israel series. The first book in the series, ‘Gideon: The Sound and The Glory,’ was a #1 bestseller, as well as his second book.

WILMINGTON, NC, December 03, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — Most of us like to believe we are familiar with the Bible. But are we? Bestselling author Joseph Ganci thinks perhaps there are many overlooked mysteries, gems of understanding waiting to be uncovered.

Vast wealth and greed. Envy, trickery, lust, murder, and underhanded power grabs. Assassination attempts and deadly family plotting. Human sacrifice and battling with giants. A bloody insurrection, a murderous palace coup, and a civil war between Israel and Judah. Not 21st-century tabloid headlines but the Bible that you THOUGHT you knew.

David and Solomon…Bathsheba and Absalom… Joab, David’s chief henchman, and Nathan, the fabled prophet.

Joseph Ganci’s new must-read novel, the third book in The Empire of Israel series, is a time machine, transporting the reader into ancient biblical times, revealing previously unforeseen mysteries, intrigue, and violence.

Ganci has a talent for transcending the familiar narratives. The lives of familiar characters like David and Solomon are marred by elements we often associate with contemporary tabloid headlines – vast wealth, greed, envy, trickery, and lust. Even the ancients lived in a world of murder and underhanded power grabs, and grappled with the same human vices that captivate modern audiences. His inclusion of hidden trials and lethal judgements, assassination attempts, deadly family plotting, and the chilling backdrop of human sacrifice, adds a layer of suspense and darkness that challenges modern-day perceptions of biblical history. Readers can explore these timeless stories with fresh eyes. Ganci masterfully transforms biblical accounts into a riveting narrative that transcends conventional wisdom.

The exploration of complex relationships, written with extraordinary depth and weight adding frail human weakness to the narrative. By delving into the underbelly of biblical stories, Ganci breathes life into these ancient tales, revealing a world marked by violence, giants, and the relentless struggle for power. In the style that turned the first books in the series into bestsellers, he makes the Bible an exciting and unpredictable journey, defying expectations and leaving readers eager to discover the untold facets of these ageless sagas.

The eBook version will be available at no charge at Amazon on December 5 and 6, 2023 at

Readers and reviewers alike have praised Ganci’s previous books:

“Although most people are aware of the story of David and Goliath, the giant, ‘David: God’s Chosen Crucible’ by Joseph Ganci is a brilliant retelling of all the stories about the Shepard boy who would one day become a King of Israel. Reading with all the informational value of a history textbook is deftly combined with the entertainment of an action/adventure novel.”
Michael J. Carson Reviewer for Midwest Book Review.

“David God’s Chosen Crucible is intelligently plotted, well-researched, and expertly executed. The writing by Joseph Ganci is wonderful, and the author has the gift of filling the narrative with exciting details, describing a setting that is colorful and transports readers to biblical times.” – Christian Sia for Readers’ Favorite.

“Joseph delivers an extremely believable story that fills the gaps smoothly and neatly packs various events into an intense, multiple-viewpoint narrative. The book also contains several lessons and messages to help believers grow in faith and knowledge about God’s ways.”
Foluso Falaye – San Francisco book review.

The new book is available on Amazon in e-Book and paperback versions.

Ganci takes a ground-breaking and revelatory path in his quest to bring awe-inspiring stories to life and, ultimately, to film. He believes that connecting facts is far more enchanting than loosely fitting fantasies. He works within an engaging and dramatized fiction framework that remains faithful to uphold spiritual principles while exceedingly rich in detail.

Ganci 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 and 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 sound biblical teachings.

Ganci is also the creator of ‘Incredible Bible Mysteries,’ a five-part video series now available on YouTube at

Ganci believes that Old Testament revelations are the Word of God. Simultaneously, many needful details remained buried until the information age of discovery made them prominent and visible to the naked eye. These insights create a middle ground of understanding. As a dedicated and highly motivated researcher, he proposes many undiscovered nuggets of spiritual gold in the original manuscripts. He shines a new light on ancient texts and removes the black-or-white argument of the all-or-nothing question of modern-day revelations. He is adept at untangling philosophical and theological human-made knots. He allows us to look at what some consider foregone conclusions.

Readers of his bestseller, ‘Gideon: The Sound and the Glory,’ will learn about the Jewish Tabernacle, the Ark of the Covenant, the mysterious Golden Ephod, why David found himself at 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 honored as one of the ’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 Ganci’s prose is arresting, peppered with fantastic imagery and succinct descriptions of plot, characters, and setting. The themes rise to a masterful recreation.
