Publisher's Summary

Wife to a gambler who took one too many risks, Rahab finds herself sold as a slave to cover her husband's debt. Forced into prostitution, she despairs of ever regaining her freedom and her self-respect. But when Israelite spies enter Jericho and come to lodge at her house, Rahab sees a glimmer of hope and the opportunity of a lifetime. In one risky moment, she takes a leap of faith, puts her trust in a God she does not know, and vows to protect the spies from the authorities.

When the armies of Israel arrive weeks later, Rahab hopes they will keep their promise, but she has no idea what kind of challenges await her outside Jericho's walls - or if she will ever know the meaning of love.

Under Jill Eileen Smith's talented hand, the familiar story of Rahab bursts forth in high definition. Immerse yourself in a world of dark and dusty streets, clandestine meetings, and daring escapes as a mysterious biblical figure claims her full humanity - and a permanent place in your heart.

    "Truly forgiven"

    I hated hearing all the hardships Rahab went through and how she suffered so much. But I loved how God redeemed her, forgave her and blessed her. I have experienced his love that way and it makes me love him even more. Thank you for this book.

    "Inspiring"

    The Crimson Cord is a story that illustrates the love and mercy of Adoni, brought to life in this story of Rahab, a forgiven child of God blessed to become a part of our Lord's lineage. Listening to this story drew me to read the book of Joshua and reminded be of how much our God loves and is willing to to forgive and restore us.

    "Rahab really came to life!"

    The author did a wonderful job developing the characters and giving us an in depth look at what life may have been like then. Her focus on the internal struggles of each individual really immerses the reader in the story and gives a view from all sides. The narration was a major disappointment. It lacked emotion and natural flow, and is the only thing that prevented a five star rating.
