In her second Wives of the Patriarchs book, Smith makes biblical fiction unforgettable and worthy of our attention. This incredible author’s ability to recreate biblical settings and transform dialogue delivers a God-given message that is just as relevant today as it was thousands of years ago.
The love story of Rebekah and Isaac, and how God sent messengers to bring them together, sends us a clear message of God’s plans for those He loves. Relationships throughout the story become entwined and encourage us to make inferences about God’s care. The great prayers of our forefathers and foremothers have such power to move us to action. Will the sons of Abraham fulfill their individual destinies? How do the challenges they face bring forth compassion, forgiveness and fulfillment? (REVELL, Feb., 304 pp., $14.99)
