From 4-time Whitney Award-winning author, H.B. Moore comes the new biblical novel about Deborah the Judge, a woman who rises from oppression and leads her entire nation to victory.
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 oppressions 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.
Deborah: Prophetess of God is another well written and researched book by H.B. Moore. Once you start reading one of her books it's near impossible to put down. When I first picked it up in the evening (which was a big mistake) I kept telling myself..."Just one more chapter." Well, 9:00 p.m. turned into 1:30 a.m. very quickly. Moore's writing pulls you into the plot in a way that you forget you are reading a book and not watching a movie.
This particular book is about Deborah the Prophetess spoken of in the Holy Bible. There is not a lot written of her, so this makes this novel an even bigger achievement for Moore. Readers are swept away to the time when the Israelites are preparing to defend themselves against the oppressive Canaanites. With only little known facts of Deborah and her family, they are brought to life in rich, vivid detail. We learn a little about her upbringing and then go to years later when Deborah is made one of the judges of Israel. Deborah is portrayed as a woman of not only faith but great courage and wisdom. I enjoyed this book so much. I feel that this is one of her best novels yet and she has written A LOT of books. If you like historical/Biblical fiction with adventure and romance, you will truly love Deborah: Prophetess of God.
