DEBORAH BY H.B. MOORE

ABOUT THE BOOK

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 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.



MY REVIEW

If you're a fan of Biblical fiction like me then you'll love this story about Deborah.

Taken from the book of Judges Deborah was Israel's 4th prophet.
I think it's amazing how all of these authors can take the characters from the Bible and let us readers get to know them personally. This is Biblical fiction at it's finest and it is well worth the read and yes even rereading!!
This is the 1st book I've read by this author and I was hooked!
I spent most of the night reading this book. I was taken back to Biblical times and felt like I was invisible by Deborah's side as the battle with the Cannanites and truly felt God's power as He helped His ppl. I was like get get him! I was hooting and hollering until my husband told me to be quiet and that he was trying to sleep but I just stuck my tongue out at him lol!! He really doesn't know what he's missing by not liking to read. I feel sorry for him. My son only reads when he has to. But anyway, this is story you won't soon forget! It will leave you thinking about it long after it's over. I hope this book will bless you and remind you of God's love for us.
I think this is the most exciting biblical story I've read in awhile.
My thanks to Covenate Influencer reading group and Netgalley for a complimentary copy of this book. NO compensations were received. All opinions are my own.
