Within one of the Old Testament’s most famous battles lies one of the most tender love stories. Hidden within the battle of Jericho is the story of Rahab, a beautiful and brave young Canaanite woman who aided the Israelites by hanging a piece of scarlet cord from a window. This act of faith changed her life by placing her in the genealogy of Christ.
Rahab is the youngest daughter of a Canaanite farmer, taken to Jericho for the pagan New Year so her father can find her a wealthy spouse. Sala, the Israelite boy who had once saved her from being kidnapped, is also in Jericho. When the two young people meet again they admit their love for one another, but their different religions make marriage impossible. Their love story plays out against the background of Jericho’s pagan rites. It is only when the One True God of Israel comes into Rahab’s life - and she realizes what He is calling her to do - that she and Sala can come together. Witness Rahab as a young woman determined to find her destiny as she follows her heart toward true love... and the One True God.

This was not the first audio book i've read, but it was the very first that i was able to finish. It was captivating! I would most definitely recommend this book. And no i look ofrwar to reading more...
I loved the scene when Rahab and the king were to perform the marital rights of the gods and she had prayed to Elohim to save her and her reaction when he did.
Lol! It would have to be Lord Nasham. I just love his character, so poised and disciplined. I would like to see if he relax a bit.
Going deeper in the issues the book brings up rather than just merely stating the facts as a series of events.
The narrator should have used a different "voice" for Rahab as a child. The way Rahab's voice as a child was delivered did not come accross as authentic.
Revealing, Rivoting, Revolutionary
The way the character of Rahab was revealed through her thoughts, actions, reactions.
Awesome performancen in nuance of expression. Great interpretation of character.
Rahab, to hear one on one how her conversion to the Hebrew Elohiem and Yaweh became a reality in her life.
A great new perspective of the Battle of Jericho.
