Product Description

It is a time of great tumult.and even greater evil. When the Moavite King Eglon's reign of terror ends abruptly in the 14th century BC, the yoke of bondage is at last broken for the people of Israel. Now is their chance for a new start.but will it be enough to turn their hearts? Devorah, the oldest child of doting parents, has grown up beloved by her entire community. Everyone senses something different about her-that God has specially placed His Hand on her-but for what purpose? Yael, a purchased bride, is torn from her home and plunged into a life she never wanted. Can she learn to love this man she must now call husband...or is there too much of a chasm between them? And what of her dreams? Has God forgotten her? Little could these two women guess that their lives would become polished arrows in God's quiver, targeting an entire nation.

    Deborah Galiley has written a masterful recounting of the Bible story from the book of Judges about Deborah and Jael, one of the lesser known or understood stories. She takes us into the lives of these two women and shows us what it must've been like for Deborah who was a wife and mother as well as prophetess. Details of her life with her children and her husband make her someone we can easily identify with. Jael, an abused wife who is taken far from her family and people to live with pagans is also drawn with empathy and a realization that as tough as her life is, she has been brought by God to be where she needs to be for "such a time as this." Very well done. I recommend it especially for those who want a better understanding of one of the darker chapters in the Bible.

    Polished Arrows entwines the lives of Devorah, the Prophetess of Israel and Jael, the wife of Hever the Kentite in a way that hasnt been done before. We get to see these two women grow in their lives and their faith to the point where they are themselves the weapons of the LORD God of Israel. Polished Arrows is true to the Tanakh account, but expands the lives and times of the people to let us observe their faith and power.Both men and women will enjoy this novel and the courageous characters who fill it. The world of Jael changes when she is taken from her family as the bride of Hever the Kenite. She leaves everything she knew and loved to become the wife of a cruel man of the desert. Devorah lives in peace and comfort with her family in Ramah. She grows in strength with the LORD God, marries, and raises a family, then her life changes tooshe is called to become a prophetess and Judge in Israel.You will hear the battle cries and the howl of the shofars as the forces of the Canaanites and the army of Devorah and Barak come together. This is battle they have prepared for for twenty years. This is the battle to determine the fate of Israel. We pray with them that the depth of their faith sustains them and that leaves a message for readers in this time too. If want to taste a slice of the times of the Judges, read Polished Arrows--you'll cry out along with Deborah Galiley's characters "Baruch ha Shem."

Author/Artist Review

Author: Deborah Galiley
Located in: Upstate New York
Submitted: December 11, 2008

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I'm Jewish and married to a tall, dark,handsome Messianic Jewish Rabbi (Messianic Jews believe that Jesus (Yeshua)is the Messiah), have five fabulous children, live in Upstate New York, enjoy baking bread, cooking, long walks and playing worship music, and am currently battling breast cancer for the fourth time.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I wanted to write a book where every page counted, and where you weren't merely flipping through, looking for the plot resolution.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope they will draw closer to God as well as gain a deeper understanding of their Jewish roots. I also hope they will have a terrific read!

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  There were days when I felt like the Holy Spirit was "down-loading" information to me as I typed! In many ways, the writing was a time of worship for me.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  My biggest literary influence (aside from the Bible) has definitely been C.S. Lewis! Next is J.R.R. Tolkien. Robin McKinley's earlier works (e.g., The Blue Sword) gave me a glimpse of excellently written fantasy with a heroine who is clever, funny, and real. I like to think that I gleaned some ability to write wisdom literature from Hannah Hurnard (Hind's Feet on High Places, Mountains of Spices).

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  I've been very gratified by the huge amount of positive feedback on Polished Arrows. People are telling me that they can't put it down, they're becoming more intimate with God, they love the Jewish aspect, and that as they're reading, they feel like they are right there, in 13th century B.C. ancient Israel!
