I am a fan of biblical fiction. This is the fleshed-out story of what Rahab might have gone through to be the salvation of 2 Hebrew spies. The story is well written and gives a plausible storyline that is historically and biblically accurate. This is the first book of the Women of the Bible series offered by Signet. ( )

2nd in the series of "women of the Bible," this one tells about Rahab, the harlot who was the only one spared when the Jews conquered Jericho. Fascinating look at a woman who played a pivotal role in the Bible, but about whom not much is said. ( )
