The Book of God, by Walter Wangerin Jr.Helen wrote this quote in my “quote journal” back years ago when we both read The Book of God, by Walter Wangerin Jr.

Achan knew the names of his blood-kin.  They were the names of his identity.  Achan, the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah.

Achan was not one.  He was many.  The children of Israel, they were one, and little Achan was a part of that.
