Brings Old Testament world to life and illuminates life style of women. ( )

The book is grouped into three books. Book one was necessary to lay a foundation but I found it difficult to enjoy. Books two and three were more focused on Dinah and I was completely immersed. The places, era, and use of biblical persons added to the story.
This was recommended to me and I'm glad I followed the advice. ( )

This had me gripped right from the very first pages. The story of Dinah, daughter of Jacob and Leah, sister of Joseph and his 9 brothers and how her destiny was formed. The Red Tent is the story of the women, of the secrets and rituals they held and the pleasures and tragedies each lived. Dinah is the only daughter mothered by Jacob's four wives and because of that, she is petted and adored by all her mothers. She learns the way of midwifery from her mother Rachel and the guidance of Inna - a midwife who joins Jacob's train. This is a tragedy and there were definitely places where I just could not believe what I was reading, but it still held me wanting to read more. It gives a believable idea of what life would have been like for the women of the era, how, before Judaism and the other major religions were properly formed, different people and tribes accepted and embraced other gods, or certainly lived in respect of other's beliefs. Dinah's fate is that of a girl who is forced to grow up too quickly in a cruel world, where her greatest love becomes the root of misery for many. Beautifully written, engaging characters and evoking a huge amount of sympathy from the reader, I highly recommend this novel. ( )

Not as good as the original Road Less Travelled. Some early chapters showed a similar feeling of inspiration, but I felt it went quickly downhill and I felt little further urge to read after about page 120. ( )

Further Along The Road Less Travelled takes the lectures of Dr. Peck and presents his profound insights into the issues that confront and challenge all of us today: spirituality, forgiveness, relationships, and growing up. In this aid for living less simplistically, you will learn not to look for the easy answers but to think multidimensionally. You will learn to reach for the “ultimate step” which brings you face to face with your personal spirituality. It will be this that helps you appreciate the complexity that is life.
Continue the journey of personal and spiritual growth with this wise and insightful book.
