About Deborah: Prophetess of God
After years of mistreatment, the Israelites prepare to defend themselves against the oppressive Canaanites. Readying for war not only takes secret military training but also an Israelite leader who is willing to both stand against generations of oppression and follow God.
Deborah, a young Israelite woman, lives a quiet and isolated life with her father and brothers. As a shepherdess in the hills near her home, she knows well the perils of her work. But when faced with incredible danger, she witnesses a series of remarkable events that preserve her life. The hand of the Lord is apparent, and it is clear that hers will be no ordinary life.
Years later, Deborah is a faithful wife and mother when she learns that the Third Judge of Israel has died–and she has been called to take his place. It is a tumultuous time in history, and soon, Deborah–prophetess, judge, and military leader–faces a seemingly insurmountable task: alongside the commander of the Israelite army, Deborah must lead ten thousand soldiers in their final campaign against their Canaanite oppressors with only her faith in God to guide her.
H B Moore has such a way with writing these Biblical historical novels. I love the way she makes the scriptures come alive. Deborah became a real person to me, not just a word on the page. I love that!
Deborah is just a girl when this book begins. She’s a shepherdess, living in the hills, just trying to stay away from the Canaanites. The reader gets to see how she was favored of the Lord, being led by him from a very early age. They also get to see the way she’s able to protect her family and sheep when she needed to. She really was a remarkable young woman.
I loved the way this book helped me understand what would have been going on in the time period between the Israelite and the Canaanites. It’s not a time period I’ve studied, but it really helps to put the whole framework of the Bible together.
If you like to read historical fiction, you won’t want to miss this book!
I was sent a copy of Deborah: Prophetess of God as a gift from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
