STRETCH GOAL! $2,500 -- Fourth Destiny's Call book! We've basically completed the initial goal with plenty of time. If we can reach the stretch goal, it will give us that extra push to complete the fourth book!

[STRETCH GOAL! US $2,500 -- el cuarto libro de Destiny's Call! Básicamente hemos completado el objetivo inicial con un montón de tiempo. Si somos capaces de llegar a la meta de estiramiento (Stretch Goal), nos dará ese empujón extra para completar el cuarto libro!]

The first two Destiny's Call books are now in hundreds of homes around the world. They are collections of biblical fiction short stories that bring many of the characters and stories of the bible to life. 

[Los dos primeros libros de “Destiny's Call” se encuentran ahora en cientos de hogares de todo el mundo. Son colecciones de cuentos bíblicos de ficción que llevan muchos de los personajes y las historias de la Biblia a la vida. Aviso: Los libros, por ahora, son todos en Inglés.]

In this long awaited installation, Destiny's Call: Book Three - Leviticus, noted author, Ben-Tzion Spitz, current Chief Rabbi of Uruguay, delves into some of the thorniest, most arcane texts, and tells them over in vivid, engaging and memorable stories.

It gives an exclusive, behind-the-scenes view of life at the time of the Israelite nation, newly freed from Egyptian slavery, now camped out in the desert around the completed Tabernacle, with detail and drama that will whet your appetite for more biblical adventures.

[En esta puesta tan largamente esperada, “Destiny's Call: Book Three - Leviticus” el autor, Ben-Tzion Spitz, actual Gran Rabino del Uruguay, profundiza en algunos de los más espinosos y arcanos textos, y los cuenta en intensas, atractivas y memorables historias.

Nos brinda un exclusiva vista detrás de escenas de la vida en el momento de la nación israelita, recién liberada de la esclavitud de Egipto, ahora acampando en el desierto alrededor del Tabernáculo completo, con tal detalle y drama que abrirán el apetito para más aventuras bíblicas.]

Below is a glimpse of the stories in this collection:

[A continuación se muestra un vistazo de las historias en esta colección:]

1.Blood Link

Kolrev is wrestling with some inner demons. The Tabernacle and its sacrificial service calls to him. What does it mean? Will he follow the directives of the priests? Will it help him? Find out as Kolrev steps through the threshold...

[Kolrev está luchando con algunos demonios internos. El tabernáculo y su servicio de sacrificio lo llaman a él. Qué significa esto? ¿Seguirá las directrices de los sacerdotes? ¿Va a ayudarlo? Averigüe lo que sucede mientras Kolrev camina a través del umbral ...]

2. Bloody Dissonance 

Aaron and his sons have been designated by God himself to lead the ceremonial services. Should they not be proud? All of them are worthy. But are some worthier than others? Danger lurks beneath the surface as ugly emotions are stirred...

[Aarón y sus hijos han sido designados por el mismo Dios para dirigir los servicios ceremoniales. ¿No deberían estar orgullosos? Todos ellos son dignos. Pero son algunos más digno que otros? El peligro acecha bajo la superficie mientras las emociones desagradables se agitan ...]

3. Elisheva’s Grief 

Tragedy strikes. Two of Aaron's sons, Nadav and Avihu are struck down by God himself. Aaron reacts stoically to the divine punishment, but how will their mother Elisheva take it?

[Ocurre una tragedia. Dos de los hijos de Aarón, Nadav y Avihu son abatidos por Dios mismo. Aarón reacciona impasible al castigo divino, pero en que forma lo tomará su madre Elisheva ?]

4. A Father’s Wager 

After many years of trying, Libit is finally pregnant and hopes for a girl to be born. However, her husband Gavri wishes for a boy. To upset matters further, doubt is sown as to the true parentage of the unborn child. A wager is made. Who will win and who will lose?

[Después de muchos años de intentos, Libit está finalmente embarazada y espera una niña que va a nacer. Sin embargo, su marido Gavri desea un varón. Para alterar aún más las cosas, la duda se siembra sobre la verdadera paternidad del niño por nacer. Se hace una apuesta. ¿Quién ganará y quién perderá?]

5. The Gossipmonger 

Kartom has returned from a priestly-imposed exile a changed man. His old friends, Datan and Aviram can't believe it. They try to engage him in the gossip and intrigue of the Israelite camp, but he resists. Will Datan and Aviram succeed in turning Kartom against the leadership of Moses and Aaron? Did Kartom learn his lesson or will he revert to his old ways? 

[Kartom ha regresado como un hombre cambiado de un exilio sacerdotal impuesto. Sus viejos amigos, Datan y Aviram no pueden creerlo. Ellos tratan de hacerlo participe en chismes e intrigas del campamento de Israel, pero él se resiste. ¿Tendrán Datan y Aviram éxito en convertir a Kartom contra el liderazgo de Moisés y de Aarón? Aprendió Kartom su lección o volverá a las andadas?]

 6. The Butcher 

Tabael was the best at what he did. He was the greatest butcher of the Israelite nation. His skill with a knife was such that even the priests sought his guidance with the sacrificial animals. But Tabael had a dark secret. A sin he regularly committed. Would Tabael be able to control himself as the honor bestowed upon him grew?  

[Tabael fue el mejor en lo que hacía. Fue el más grande de carnicero de la nación israelita. Su habilidad con el cuchillo era tal que incluso los sacerdotes buscaron su guía con los sacrificios de animales. Pero Tabael tenía un oscuro secreto. Un pecado que cometía con regularidad. ¿Será Tabael capaz de controlarse a sí mismo mientras el honor otorgado a él crece?]

7. Metal Deception 

Ramin was a shrewd metals trader. He always knew how to get the best deal in the Israelite camp. Now he had a method, albeit dishonest, to ensure very profitable deals. But Ramin is not the only deceptive player in the desert market...

[Ramin fue un comerciante de metales astuto. Siempre sabía cómo conseguir la mejor oferta en el campamento israelita. Ahora él tenía un método, aunque deshonesto, para asegurar ofertas muy rentables. Pero Ramin no es el único jugador engañoso en el mercado del desierto ...]

8. The Blasphemer  

Moses and God Himself seem to be plotting against Tohuzar. Tohuzar had once been a leader of the Israelites. The son of a Hebrew woman and an Egyptian man, he had been an ideal candidate to bridge the divide of these two people. But now in his anger he has discovered a dangerous power. A power that threatens all of existence...  

[Moisés y Dios mismo parecen estar conspirando contra Tohuzar. Tohuzar una vez había sido un líder de los israelitas. El hijo de una mujer hebrea y un egipcio, que había sido un candidato ideal para reducir la brecha de estos dos pueblos. Pero ahora, en su ira ha descubierto un poder peligroso. Un poder que amenaza a toda la existencia ...]

 9. Insidious Interest 

Some powerful and cutthroat money lenders are exerting heavy pressure in the Israelite camp. But now God, through Moses, has commanded that they must stop. It is up to Prince Nathaniel to rein these criminals in. Will he succeed?

[Algunos poderosos y despiadados prestamistas están ejerciendo una fuerte presión en el campamento israelita. Pero ahora Dios, a través de Moisés, ha ordenado que deben detenerse. Corresponde al príncipe Nathaniel frenar a estos criminales. ¿Lo logrará?]

 10. “Seven Times More Plagues” 

At the end of the Book of Leviticus, Moses reveals future disasters for the people of Israel. Prince Nethaniel is able to envision these horrible curses, but will they really come about?

[Al final del libro de Levítico, Moisés revela desastres futuros para el pueblo de Israel. El Príncipe Nethaniel es capaz de imaginar estas maldiciones horribles, pero que sucederá realmente ?]

Risks and challenges

The book is written. What still needs to be done is editing, proofreading, layout, graphics and cover design. This will be my seventh book and third of the Destiny's Call series, so I have limited concerns about getting it done. I'm using Createspace, an Amazon service, for printing and shipping and have had very good experiences with them.

We had a great experience, with my first Kickstarter project, Joshua: Conqueror, and were very pleased with the results, both of the fundraising as well as the finished product. We expect the completion of Destiny's Call: Book Three - Leviticus to go smoothly and perhaps even ahead of schedule.

[El libro está escrito. Lo que todavía se necesita hacer es edición, corrección, diseño, gráficos y diseño de la cubierta. Este será mi séptimo libro y tercero de la serie “Llamada del Destino”, por lo que tengo limitadas preocupaciones en conseguir que sea hecho. Estoy usando Createspace, un servicio de Amazon, para la impresión y envío y he tenido muy buenas experiencias con ellos.

Tuvimos una gran experiencia, con mi primer proyecto de Kickstarter, Joshua: Conquistador, y quedamos muy satisfechos con los resultados, tanto en la recaudación de fondos como así también con el producto final. Esperamos que la finalización de “Llamada del destino: Libro Tercero - Levítico “ se realice sin inconvenientes y tal vez incluso antes de lo previsto.]
