Rebekah Book Review by Jill Eileen Smith


Every time I read a book about one of King David’s wives or the Patriarchs the authors make me think about the story in a different light. This was the case with Rebekah by Jill Eileen Smith in the second book of the Wives of the Patriarch’s series.

I enjoyed reading Rebekah and Isaac’s love story, as it is on of the most amazing in the Bible. Rebekah trusted God and a servant when she agreed to marry Issac without ever meeting him. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I could possess a faith like that at all.

Jill’s angles in the relationships between Abraham and Sarah, Isaac and Rebekah, and Isaac & Rebekah and sons made me think about wonder about their full stories. I enjoyed reading Jill’s perspective. I cried too, but that’s a given when you empathize with characters you read about right?

I recommend this book just so you think about the different circumstances in Isaac and Rebekah’s meeting, marriage, and parenting. This book is sure to make you pensive if anything about the lives of Isaac and Rebekah.

“Available February 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.”
