The Crimson Cord, by Jill Eileen Smith, is a book in the Daughters of the Promised Land series that tells the story of Rehab. While I knew of this Bible story from past Bible studies, I really enjoyed reading this book to read Rehab’s story more in depth, based on what the author imagined she may have experienced. Rehab was sold into prostitution, due to the actions of her father and deceased husband. The book then looks at her actions when Jericho falls. She displayed great bravery throughout the story, as she went against her people to protect the Israelites.
I really enjoyed this book, and I think it provides a great way for people to learn more about the lives of those in the Bible. This book created a very realistic picture of what Rehab’s life may have been like. The book is a great example of forgiveness and also strength in the face of adversity.
