Publisher's Summary

Within one of the Old Testament's most famous battles lies one of the most tender love stories. Hidden within the battle of Jericho is the story of Rahab, a beautiful and brave young Canaanite woman who aided the Israelites by hanging a piece of scarlet cord from a window. This act of faith changed her life by placing her in the genealogy of Christ.

Rahab is the youngest daughter of a Canaanite farmer, taken to Jericho for the pagan New Year so her father can find her a wealthy spouse. Sala, the Israelite boy who had once saved her from being kidnapped, is also in Jericho. When the two young people meet again they admit their love for one another, but their different religions make marriage impossible. Their love story plays out against the background of Jericho's pagan rites. It is only when the One True God of Israel comes into Rahab's life - and she realizes what He is calling her to do - that she and Sala can come together. Witness Rahab as a young woman determined to find her destiny as she follows her heart toward true love... and the One True God.

    "First time actually "reading" an audio book..."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was not the first audio book i've read, but it was the very first that i was able to finish. It was captivating! I would most definitely recommend this book. And no i look ofrwar to reading more...

    What was one of the most memorable moments of This Scarlet Cord?

    I loved the scene when Rahab and the king were to perform the marital rights of the gods and she had prayed to Elohim to save her and her reaction when he did.

    If you could take any character from This Scarlet Cord out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Lol! It would have to be Lord Nasham. I just love his character, so poised and disciplined. I would like to see if he relax a bit.

    "Average book"
    Would you try another book from Joan Wolf and/or Brooke Sanford Heldman?

    Not sure

    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Going deeper in the issues the book brings up rather than just merely stating the facts as a series of events.

    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator should have used a different "voice" for Rahab as a child. The way Rahab's voice as a child was delivered did not come accross as authentic.
