About "The Prophetess - Deborah's Story (#02 in Daughters Of The Promised Land Series)"

God has other plans for outspoken, fearless Deborah than the typical life of an Israelite woman. The Lord has raised up Deborah to save his people from decades-long Canaanite oppression. But will her family understand? Will they even believe God's calling on her life?
- Koorong

:Outspoken and fearless, Deborah has faith in God but struggles to see the potential her own life holds. As an Israelite woman, she'll marry, have a family, and seek to teach her children about Adonai--and those tasks seem to be more than enough to occupy her time. But God has another plan for her. Israel has been under the near constant terror of Canaan's armies for twenty years, and now God has called Deborah to deliver her people from this oppression. Will her family understand? Will her people even believe God's calling on her life? And can the menace of Canaan be stopped?

With her trademark impeccable research and her imaginative storytelling, Jill Eileen Smith brings to life the story of Israel's most powerful woman in a novel that is both intriguing and inspiring.

Prophetess review
4 stars By Anna, Dec 28 2017
a good story, read within 2 days. However;got bored upon reaching the middle chapters and skipped through Jael's boring tale.  Thoroughly enjoyed the war chapters to the end.

Deborah Retelling
5 stars By Joy, Jan 11 2017
I found this book very catchy and it was hard to put it down when the words kept sucking me in. The story was soo clear and interesting at the start that I almost felt like I was Deborah and I was judging all the people of Israel under a palm tree, or smashing a stone to break an idol and getting lost in the woods like Tayla, or fighting in battle like Barak. I would suggest this book for people who love the story of Deborah

Exactly what Biblical fiction should be
5 stars By Katie Donovan, Feb 05 2016
This novel is exactly what Biblical fiction should be - or any kind of historical fiction for that matter: History brought to life on the page; names given flesh, muscle, bones, and a beating heart; and a story that is completely authentic to its setting. I really cannot recommend this novel highly enough, especially for lovers of Biblical fiction.  It is emotionally and historically rich, and hooked me from the first page right up until the last. Deborah is portrayed as having a strong personality, and yet the author never colours her with modern egalitarian notions.  Deborah embraces her role as a wife and mother, even struggles against her disappointment at her husband's eternal amiability and willingness to compromise for her sake, and her growth in these roles form as much a part of the story as her roles as a judge and prophetess.  Barak and Jael (Heber's wife) are also very well drawn characters, as is the fictional character, Talya.  I actually paused in my reading at one point to go back and read the two chapters from Judges because I was sure there must have been details there that I had forgotten about.  There were not.  I sincerely admire the thought and study that must have gone into not only conceiving such a realistic picture of these characters from the scant details available to us, but then also portraying them to the reader so convincingly.
