After years of mistreatment, the Israelites prepare to defend themselves against the oppressive Canaanites. Readying for war not only takes secret military training but also an Israelite leader who is willing to both stand against generations of oppressions and follow God.
Deborah, a young Israelite woman, lives a quiet and isolated life with her father and brothers. As a shepherdess in the hills near her home, she knows well the perils of her work. But when faced with incredible danger, she witnesses a series of remarkable events that preserve her life. The hand of the Lord is apparent, and it is clear that hers will be no ordinary life.
Years later, Deborah is a faithful wife and mother when she learns that the Third Judge of Israel has died—and she has been called to take his place. It is a tumultuous time in history, and soon, Deborah—prophetess, judge, and military leader—faces a seemingly insurmountable task: alongside the commander of the Israelite army, Deborah must lead ten thousand soldiers in their final campaign against their Canaanite oppressors with only her faith in God to guide her.
“I have enjoyed reading Heather’s books since her first novel appeared in print and have proudly recommended them to family and friends for years. Deborah: Prophetess of God is no exception. Once again, she has created a world that lets readers see into the life of this amazing woman, mixing biblical narrative with imaginative and compelling fiction. Another triumph!” —David A.
