Overview

Women of the Bible: Deborah's Story: A Novel by Ann Burton

The Bible is filled with women of faith, bravery, and cunning. Here is one woman’s tale—as it might have happened. . . .
 
“Wake up, wake up, Deborah!
Wake up, wake up, break out in song!
Arise, O Barak!
Take captive your captives,
O son of Abinoam.”
—Judges 5:12
 
Though Deborah’s master has abused her for as long as she can remember, there is one thing he cannot take from her-her nightly dream of a stranger destined to bring her joy. Then, by a twist of fate and with an act of courage, Deborah manages to save the life of Lappidoth, the man she soon realizes is her dream lover, by warning him that her master is plotting against him.
 
Furious, Deborah’s master sentences her to death. But Lappidoth saves her life. Now, as she recovers in his house, Deborah’s dreams all come to pass-so she puts her gift to use. And so will Deborah be known as a heroine in Israel’s fight against the Canaanites, a prophetess for God’s chosen people, and one of the greatest judges of all time. . . .

Great book! Was hard to put the book down! This book was moving and so well written that it made the story of Deborah come to life. I will definately be reading the other stories like this that were written by this author.

This was a very good book! It was hard to put down. It brought me closer to God, knowing what this woman went through. It has everything. You must read it!

What a splendid read. Never thought of Abigail in this fashion when I read her short blurb in the bible. I will never look at her story as simple again. Loved how the author sensitively portrayed David (Poet, Warrior & Anointed King) as a man in love with a woman. Great love & sensuality without harshness or crudeness. I was swept into the moment, as if I was right there with Abigail. This is a love story for all time.

It was a quick read, the battle between the Canna aides and Hebrews at Mt. Tabor was as I remember from bible teachings. These kind of fictional history bible stories make it easier to remember actual bible stories.

Wonderfully written. It was easy to visualize what it must have been like at the time Rahab had lived. It made me want to go back and read about Rahab in the the Bible itself.
