Great Books!!!

I just finished reading Francine River's "A Lineage of Grace." She had written these books a while ago and sold them as separate hardbacks, but has just put them out in a paperback and it has all of the books in one! It was amazing!!! "We meet the 5 women whom God chose-- Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary. Each was faced with extraordinary--even scandalous--challanges. Each took great personal risk to fulfill her calling. Each was destined to play a key role in the lineage of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the World."

I love Christian Historical Fiction, so this book was right up my alley! I felt like I was friends with the characters. I felt their joy and their pain. I learned more about the Bible and it helped me to dig into Scripture I had not read in a long time. I highly recommend these!!

Next, I will be reading "Sons of Encouragement."

"Francine Rivers illuminates the lives of five Biblical men who stood behind the heroes of faith and quietly changed eternity. Aaron, Caleb, Jonathan, Amos, and Silas each faithfully sought after God in the shadows of His chosen leaders. They answered God's call to serve without recognition of fame. And they gave everything, knowing their reward might not come until the next life."
