Such a great interpretation of the life of Rahab! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and loved reading it. Jill Smith has written beautifully of one of the Bible’s important women from the Old Testament. The gripping details of her life prior to meeting the two spies sent from Joshua created a redeeming love story by the end. The fleshing out of what little we do know resulted in a powerful story. It left me holding this scripture passage tenderly in my heart with more meaning than ever before. Rehab bravely defied the role she was given and the rules she had to live by to assist the spies. Then she believed with a faith she had little knowledge of that they would come back to rescue her and her family. A moving account is given of her soul changing as she discovers the Israelites God and His ways. You must read The Crimson Cord: Rahab’s Story. I highly recommend it and now want to read more of Jill Eileen Smith’s writings.
I was given a copy of this book by Revell Publishing through Net Galley for my honest review.
