THE TRIUMPH OF DEBORAH (History)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:35PM
Description: "... add[s] sparkle to an ancient story. . . illustrate[s] the pervasiveness of sexual politics. . . in a world bereft of even the semblance of political and sexual equality."--Lilith, Summer 2008 “This novel will be devoured by lovers of historical fiction and romance alike.”—Library Journal, February, 2008. Recently published by Plume/Penguin, it brings to life the riveting tale of one of the most beloved biblical figures: the revered leader, judge and prophetess Deborah. In ancient Israel, war is looming. Deborah has coerced warrior Barak into launching a strike against the neighboring Canaanites, who threaten their people with destruction. Against all odds he succeeds, returning triumphantly with two daughters of the Canaanite King as his captives. But military victory is only the beginning of the turmoil, as a complex love triangle develops between Barak and the two princesses. Deborah, recently cast off by her husband, becomes part of the turmoil. Yet she struggles to rebuild her existence on her own terms, while also groping her way toward the greatest triumph of her life: the attainment of peace.

Description: A biblical thriller. Recently published by Plume/Penguin, the novel offers a daring interpretation of the riveting tale of one of the most beloved biblical figures: the revered leader, judge and prophetess Deborah. In ancient Israel, war is looming. Deborah convinces warrior Barak to launch a strike against the neighboring Canaanites, who threaten their people with destruction. Against all odds he succeeds, returning triumphantly with two daughters of the defeated king in his tow. Yet military victory is only the beginning of a personal turmoil, of which Deborah becomes part. Despite setbacks in her own life, she gropes her way toward her greatest triumph: the attainment of peace. Will she be able to persuade Barak to be her emissary of peace, as he had previously carried out her design for war?
THE TRIUMPH OF DEBORAH (Literature & Fiction)

Description: THE RICHLY IMAGINED SAGA OF DEBORAH, THE COURAGEOUS BIBLICAL WARRIOR, PROPHETESS AND LEADER WHO SAVED HER PEOPLE FROM CERTAIN DESTRUCTION In ancient Israel, war is looming. Deborah has coerced warrior Barak into launching a strike against the neighboring Canaanites, who threaten their people with destruction. Against all odds he succeeds, returning triumphantly with two daughters of the Canaanite King as his captives. But military victory is only the beginning of the turmoil, as a complex love triangle develops between Barak and the two princesses. Deborah, recently cast off by her husband, develops a surprising affinity for Barak. Yet she struggles to rebuild her existence on her own terms, while also groping her way toward the greatest triumph of her life: the attainment of peace. Based on the book of Judges , and filled with brilliantly vivid historical detail, the novel shows that in her own life Deborah was very much a woman, and that her femininity did not detract from her stature as national leader. Thereby it pays tribute to Deborah's feminine strength and independence from which present day women, seeking to build lives of their own and assert themselves in whatever way they choose to do so, may derive inspiration. The Triumph of Deborah describes a prominent woman leader who led her people to war but also to peace. Hence it should be of special relevance in an American presidential election year in which a female candidate is a front runner. It should also be of relevance on the occasion of the sixtieth anniversary of Israel, where women's leadership is becoming increasingly prominent, a year in which the topic of female leadership in time of war and peace will be most prominent on both countries' agenda. Paperback. The Triumph of Deborah is p ublished by Plume, a division of Penguin Group (USA)
