The Prophetess; Deborah's Story by Jill Eileen Smith

Monday, February 29, 2016

Outspoken and fearless, Deborah has faith in God but struggles to see the potential her own life holds. As an Israelite woman, she'll marry, have a family, and seek to teach her children about Adonai--and those tasks seem to be more than enough to occupy her time. But God has another plan for her. Israel has been under the near constant terror of Canaan's armies for twenty years, and now God has called Deborah to deliver her people from this oppression. Will her family understand? Will her people even believe God's calling on her life? And can the menace of Canaan be stopped?

About the Author

Jill Eileen Smith is the author of the bestselling The Crimson Cord and the Wives of King David series, along with the Wives of the Patriarchs, Daughters of the Promised Land, and The Loves of King Solomon series. Her research has taken her from the Bible to Israel, and she particularly enjoys learning how women lived in Old Testament times.

My Take~

I am a huge fan of biblical fiction and this one is Jill at her best. Her imagination along with superb research has created a story that takes you back to Israel when the Israelites where worshiping the gods of Canaan. I felt as if I was right there among them as Deborah judged and they went to war to defeat Sisera. One of the reasons I love biblical fiction so much is that it draws me to the story in the Bible.
I highly recommend this book!
