Lineage of Grace - Francine Rivers

In Lineage of Grace we follow Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary through their lives as they are each intricately woven into the Lineage of Christ. Tamar shows the story of a woman betrayed, yet a woman determined to do what is right in the eyes of God. Rahab, a harlot, shows that no matter the sin God can still do wonderful things in each of our lives. Ruth, a love story of epic proportions...we see love given from daughter-in-law to mother-in-law, but we also see love shown from man to woman as Ruth takes her rightful place as the wife of Boaz. With Bathsheba, we again see how God can turn a sin into something that is for His glory, if only the participants are willing. And finally with Mary we get an interpretive look into the live of Jesus' mother and the struggles she went through watching her son, who she knew to be the Christ, grow up and be rejected by a world that was supposedly waiting for his arrival. We see with Mary how God can take the most illogical person to be someone that is important to His plan.


I really enjoyed the stories of Tamar, Rahab and Ruth, but started losing interest when it came to Bathsheba as it seemed to be more drawn out and less action oriented than the other stores. Rahab, the harlot, and Ruth's stories were my favorite story to read. They both showed extreme faith in a God they were not very familiar with, but they knew what He was capable of and chose to follow.

Francine Rivers is a very gifted writer, and author of one of my all time favorite books - Redeeming Love. I can't wait to read more novels by this author in the future!
