The Prophetess: Deborahs Story by Jill Eileen Smith is an eye-opening story following Deborah’s life. Deborah is an Israelite woman who just wants to serve the Lord and raise a family. But God calls her to judge the people of Israel. This book will take you to a time where Israel was struggling with false gods. Their enemy, the Canaanites, have been terrorizing the Israelites for twenty years. And God has called Deborah to deliver His people.
This book really brings the Bible story to life for me. To be honest I haven’t thought much of Deborah’s role in delivering the Israelites from oppression. But this book shows us what Deborah could have been thinking, or even going through at the time. I absolutely loved the book, and will recommend it to my friends and family to read. It helps you get a better glimpse of an ordinary women who God called to do extraordinary things.
