Book Review

“I bless you with strength, courage, determination & love.”

The Scrolls of Deborah was released on February 20, 2024. It is a testament to the enduring legacy of Deborah and Rebekah. Two extraordinary women whose stories challenge and reshape our understanding of history, faith, and the limitless possibilities of the human spirit.


About The Book 

 This book explores seminal Biblical/Jewish history that reignites old stories with a fresh lens for our current time.

Modern-day theologists and readers deserve a new and enlightened perspective on life in biblical times. The stories we’ve heard are not the only stories. This book is an eye-opening experience. 

It is a new take on an old story that can ring truer for today’s reader. This story allows the reader to look through the feminine gaze. To hear, see, and acknowledge their efforts.

While reading this book, I was fascinated that Egyptians believed in God. They called him Yah and had a simplistic way of perceiving Him. They were able to connect with Him through simple breathing techniques, that elevated their God consciousness. This technique is now called yoga or meditation.

 This book was more than a good read. It was inspirational and refreshing. It is a sensory journey across holy, historic lands in a day-to-day, believable, and realistic way. 

This book is great for women’s bible study or book club. It is full of complexity and opportunities for discussion. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
