Rahab is a prostitute whose home is built into the thick, strong walls of Jericho. Rahab didn’t choose her profession; her family did. She is physically beautiful and ashamed of what she does. When the Israelites offer her salvation if she will help them, she accepts. And this begins her journey to the One True God.
Salmone is a warrior, second to Joshua, the leader of the Israelites, in the tribe of Judah. When Rahab’s family joins the tribe, Salmone has difficulty accepting them. But she proves herself over and over. Still their relationship is stormy and confusing. Only God could bring these two to an everlasting love. (MOODY, Sep., 336 pp., $13.99)
