After the challenging, science-laden heavy academic writing of our last book, here is something completely different! It is The Lineage of Grace by Francine Rivers.
It is a book of five novellas about five women of the bible, Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary. Each was faced with extraordinary--even scandalous--challenges. Each took great personal risk to fulfil her calling. Each was destined to play a key role in the lineage of Jesus Christ.
