The Crimson Cord: Rahab's Story (Daughters of the Promised Land #1)The Crimson Cord: Rahab's Story by Jill Eileen Smith
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Biblical character of Rahab has always intrigued me. How did a prostitute factor into the Lord's plan so prominently? What was she like? How did she see the God of Israel for who He truly is? What made her hide the Jewish spies on her roof? What was there about Rahab that earned her a spot in the lineage of Christ?

Nobody knows the true answers to these questions. But via this fiction story, Jill Eileen Smith paints a very credible picture of the complex character of Rahab. She rounds out the character into a fully dimensional woman with faults and virtues and an amazing spiritual growth.

This is a darkly uplifting story. Darkly because we have to experience a time in history when people were brutal. There was no grace through Christ. It's a time in history that we can barely comprehend in today's culture. We think we have it rough today? We're clueless. But as with any good uplifting story, there is a hero and there is a way to rise above the circumstance. Love it!
