Product Description

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.

    The Prophetess is book 2 in the Daughters of the Promised Land written by Jill Eileen Smith. This is a Biblical fiction book of Deborah based on Judges 4:1-5.

    Deborah is Lappidoths wife, and mother of Lavi, Elior and Tayla. Lappidoth is a Levite who is also a scribe, writing copies of the law and writing letters for the elders. He teaches Deborah how to read and write so she can also do this. Deborah learns the law and spend her time sitting at the city gate as a Judge answering peoples questions regarding the law.

    Deborah also receives visions from God. As the country is being terrorized by Sisera who travels around killing people and taking the girls, God reveals to her that this will not end until everyone stops worshiping idols.

    The story also introduces us to Deborahs extended family as well as Barak, a man whose wife was murdered by Sisera. Deborahs daughter, Tayla, is interested in Barak and would like to be his wife, but he rejects her.

    I enjoy reading stories of women in the Bible and this story is really good. I like how the author brings the customs of the time into the story . I appreciate the research the author has done to bring this story to life. I also appreciate that even though this is a series, the book is a stand alone story.

    I was gifted this book from conniewithay and Baker Publishing Group for an honest review

    Jill Eileen Smith in her new book, The Prophetess Book Two in her Daughters of the Promised Land series published by Revell gives us Deborahs Story.

    From the Back Cover: Canaan has ravaged Israel. The people are in hiding. All that stands between surrender and hope is one untested woman.

    Deborah will never forget the day her father and brothers left to worship at the Lords tabernacleor the wails of her mother after finding their bodies at the city gates. The memories of Canaans cruelty haunt her and all of Israel. Now in this dark time, the Lord calls on Deborah to lead His people away from the idols of other nations and back to Him.

    Deborah never asked to be a prophetess or a judge over Gods people. Still, she cannot deny His voice or the visions that accompany it. Will her family ever understand? Will her people even believe Gods calling on her life? And can the Canaanite menace be stopped?

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

    You can find the story of Deborah and Barak in The Bible in the book of Judges chapters 4 & 5. It is very dramatic and exciting but I think the focus is primarily on Israel and there is a lot of back story on Deborah that is completely left out from The Bible. Jill Eileen Smith to our rescue. Wow, the depth of information that Ms. Smith presents to us is quite interesting and captivating. Because of all this research and information we are given quite a picture of this woman that makes her very interesting and someone to really care about. Ms. Smith makes Deborah come alive and we get a chance to walk with her and share her adventure intimately. We see what she sees, we feel what she feels simply because Ms. Smith is such a great storyteller.

    THE PROPHETESS: Jill Smith.

    The Prophetess is Deborahs story that is found in the book of Judges chapter 4.

    While the bible only gives her one chapter in the bible with very little written about her life, the author has created a very well rounded, believable character that was truly interesting. The author weaves a brilliant story of this remarkable woman that God has gifted to judge people of Israel. The book filled with realist detail of everyday life in ancient Israel and characters that are realistic and vibrant.

    The author spends the first half of the book on her early life, getting married, children, and her visions from God. I really enjoyed the way the author wrote about how God revealed His vision to her. The second half of the book is more about what we read in Judges chapter 4.

    On the other hand, there seemed to be several sub-plots and characters that seemed to overshadow Deborahs story. I understand how these character worked within the story, I personally thought that the author seemed to draw out their stories a bit more than necessary.

    I have never been disappointed with any of the biblical fiction this author has written. True I have issues with some parts, but isnt that the way it always is because we all have our own opinions. But I have and will continue to recommend this authors books.

    First off, I must say that Jill Eileen Smith did a great job with this book. With so little information about Deborah, I can only imagine the huge challenge writing this book must have been. Of course, she took lots of liberties with the characters and their background, but who could blame her!

    I think this book actually was my first biblical fiction ever. I loved how this book threw me back in time and depicted the lives of the people living in the Promised Land at the time of king Jabin's reign. The characters are very believable and realistic. As the author says in a note at the end of the book, Deborah can appear a little too perfect in Judges, but her novel really shows her as a human being with her flaws as well as her strengths.

    I think that even if we don't necessarily imagine Deborah the same way Jill Eileen Smith does, the book can be highly enjoyable for everyone. Of course, none of us knows for sure how her life was, but this version is a great inspiration and gives us a glimpse of what her life might have been.

    Thanks to the author for providing me a copy of the book. It did not affect my review.

    Deborah and Barack's Story in Exciting, Living Color

    The Prophetess, by Jill Eileen Smith, takes Judges 4 and 5 and brings the story of Deborah and Barack to life in living color. Well-researched, true to Jewish culture and history, we are fearfully caught up in the lives of Deborah and her family, starting with her marriage and proceeding all the way through Israel's victory over Canaan.

    This is more than a story of Deborah, though. It also is a novel of backslidden,desperate Israel, looking for a rescuer from cruel oppressors. It is a tale of Barack and his background and growth as an Israelite leader. We even are treated to an inside view of Jael and Heber's family. While we don't know exactly how history occurred, Smith stays true to Scripture while weaving a dazzling novel of fear, faith, love, uncertainty, and forgiveness.

    I loved that while the "big" sins were addressed and dealt with, several characters realize that pleasing God is keeping ALL the commandments, something we humans cannot do. These people urged their compatriots to forgive the major, obvious sins, pointing out that we all displease God and need His amazing grace!

    Jill Eileen Smith has created a book sure to be a bestseller! I gratefully received a copy of this book from Revell Reads and Connywithay.
