Journey to Faith begins with Moses' marriage to an Ethiopian princess, the daughter of Queen Tharbis, of ancient Sheba. It continues with Pharaoh Hatshepsut acquiring frankincense trees to beautify the former pharaoh's tomb. The spice growers of Sheba smuggle frankincense and myrrh trees to grow them in Sheba. Now having frankincense and myrrh to add to their cinnamon trade, Sheba's trade in spice increases their trade and wealth on the Silk Road. In time, the Silk Road finds a pathway across the Arabian Sea. Seaman tired of the sea become prospectors find the gold mine of the queen of Sheba. 
 
King Solomon is visited by the queen of Sheba. She converts to Judaism and bears his son, Menelik. Solomon loses the Ark of the Covenant and in despair abandons the god of Israel. The Solomon dynasty of Ethiopia continues to the twentieth century.
