From the Back Cover: Canaan has ravaged Israel. The people are in hiding. All that stands between surrender and hope is one untested woman.
Deborah will never forget the day her father and brothers left to worship at the Lord’s tabernacle–or the wails of her mother after finding their bodies at the city gates. The memories of Canaan’s cruelty haunt her and all of Israel. Now in this dark time, the Lord calls on Deborah to lead His people away from the idols of other nations and back to Him.
Deborah never asked to be a prophetess or a judge over God’s people. Still, she cannot deny His voice or the visions that accompany it. Will her family ever understand? Will her people even believe God’s calling on her life? And can the Canaanite menace be stopped?
With her trademark impeccable research and her imaginative storytelling, Jill Eileen Smith brings to life the story of Israel’s most powerful woman in a novel that is both intriguing and inspiring.
You can find the story of Deborah and Barak in The Bible in the book of Judges chapters 4 & 5. It is very dramatic and exciting but I think the focus is primarily on Israel and there is a lot of back story on Deborah that is completely left out from The Bible. Jill Eileen Smith to our rescue. Wow, the depth of information that Ms. Smith presents to us is quite interesting and captivating. Because of all this research and information we are given quite a picture of this woman that makes her very interesting and someone to really care about. Ms. Smith makes Deborah come alive and we get a chance to walk with her and share her adventure intimately. We see what she sees, we feel what she feels simply because Ms. Smith is such a great storyteller.
