Consuming Fire
The Story of Josiah, King of Judah
by Robyn Langdon

Hamutal is a humble shepherdess who follows the mesmerizing voice of God. When rowdy criminals assault her at Jerusalem’s cistern one afternoon before Sabbath, she feels hopeless until Josiah rescues her and leaves the men bleeding in the street. Young King Josiah’s journey to find truth leads him to Jehovah’s altar and— together with the woman he rescued from both tedium and peril—he seeks to leave behind the scandalous past of his grandfather’s monarchy in exchange for a revolutionary plan. What will he do when restorers of the Temple at Jerusalem unearth an ancient scroll that spells doom for them all?

“King Josiah’s narrative has never been more crucial to the timeline of human history than it is today. Robyn Langdon has captured the wisdom and leadership of this courageous king, creating ancient ties that link modern life to the original sin, unearthing similar horrors of trafficking and abuse, and showcasing the enduring freedom and hope that underscore the entirety of the gospel.” —Dr. Lisa Dunne: Speaker, Educator, and Author of The Multigenerational Marketplace “Consuming Fire weaves a beautiful tapestry of faith and devotion against a backdrop of doubts and apostasy. As you follow the story of a king and a shepherdess who search for Jehovah and follow His call, you find yourself caught up in the emotional decisions they must face. This book is not only well-written, it is an opportunity to look deeply into our own faith and how far we are willing to go to put that faith into action.” —Rev. Laverne Weber, Motivational Speaker and Author of Victory’s Journey and Moving On “Robyn Langdon is a fresh voice in Biblical fiction, and she paints a word picture that places the reader in the center of the story. Consuming Fire shows Josiah’s search for God, as he simultaneously finds a young shepherdess. Learning the truth about who they are, who their God is, and what He expects of them leads them into more than they anticipated. Their love story, combined with the ultimate love story, reminds the reader that a relationship is always worth fighting for.” —Suzanne Schaffer, author of Simple Things

Robyn Langdon has loved writing since her childhood. Her stories and articles have been published in Chicken Soup for the Mother’s Soul and Enrichment Magazine. Consuming Fire is her first novel and she hopes it will motivate her readers to examine the original accounts of King Josiah in the Bible. She is a wife, minister, mother, sister, author, and business owner, but, first and foremost, she is a daughter of the King of Kings. When she’s not writing, Robyn enjoys hiking, playing games with her family, and helping people use essential oils.
