Book Description

2009 Retailer's Choice Award winner!
In this compilation of the five books in the best-selling Lineage of Grace series by Francine Rivers, we meet the five women whom God chose—Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary. Each was faced with extraordinary—even scandalous—challenges. Each took great personal risk to fulfill her calling. Each was destined to play a key role in the lineage of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the World.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lineage of Grace by Francine Rivers January 4, 2010
Format:Paperback
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.

This book, Lineage of Grace, is a compilation of 5 separate books written by Francine Rivers several years ago. Each book (then called Unveiled, Unashamed, Unshaken, Unspoken, and Unafraid) included a section at the end called "Seek and Find" where the reader could take a deeper look at the Scriptures pertaining to each story. There were questions to consider and ideas to ponder in order to gain a better understanding of the story itself, but also of how the story and the Scriptures might apply to the reader's spiritual life. Thankfully, the "Seek and Find" sections are included in this new publication as well! Granted, each book is a fictional expansion of what the Bible gives to us, with Rivers using her imagination to add details.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! October 25, 2009
By megan
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
These are amazing stories told by an incredible author. Rivers makes the Bible more understandable and interesting to women through this book. It is beautifully written and draws you to the heart of God more and more each day. The scripture and questions at the end of each "book" are great for individual devotions or Bible studies. They are great to dive deeper into the Bible for further understanding and application. This is a must-have, along with any other Francine Rivers books. My favorite--Redeeming Love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Biblical characters come alive October 26, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition
These books really brought this women of the Bible alive. Although they lived in very different times and faced different physical and social challenges than women of today, their spiritual and emotional lives were much like ours. My favorite was Mary's story. The mother-son relationship between her and Jesus was much like that of other loving mothers and sons, yet all the time she recognized He was the Messiah.

5.0 out of 5 stars better than I could have imagined. February 14, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my wife to read for her bible study group. I read a few pages then couldn't put it down. It gives the passions and talks about what the women were thinking that caused them to do their actions. I had to read it. It is absolutely fantastic and easy reading. It sheds a lot of light in how people think in that part of the world as far as respect and how it is even still viewed today. Really worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Bible Study November 20, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We are using this book in our ladies bible study class. It has been a very eye opener, helping us to look at the stories in the bible from the point of view of the women involved. When you here the stories of women in the bible, you very rarely think about how hard their lives were and what life was like for women in those times. This gives new perspective in a way that brings the women to life. The writing is detailed and the questions at the end of each story is a wonderful guide to use in a bible study.

The will of woman has the power to change the world. "A Lineage of Grace" is a collection of Christian fiction from Francine Rivers as she presents the tale of five women and their relationships with God. Tragic pasts, oppressive environments, obedience, and more, "A Lineage of Grace" is a collection of spiritual tales that will lift the spirits of many Christian women, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular Biblical Representation February 19, 2011
By Franw
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have read many of Francine Rivers books, and, now this account of five faithful women, have never failed to encourage me to read more in the Bible. Rivers takes passages in the Bible and creates mental images that are so easily understood that it is almost like living in the pages of the Bible itself. An excellent must read!

More About the Author

"New York Times" best-selling author Francine Rivers began her literary career at the University of Nevada, Reno, where she graduated with a bachelor of arts degree in English and journalism. From 1976 to 1985, she had a successful writing career in the general market, and her books were highly acclaimed by readers and reviewers. Although raised in a religious home, Francine did not truly encounter Christ until later in life, when she was already a wife, a mother of three, and an established romance novelist. Shortly after becoming a born-again Christian in 1986, Francine wrote "Redeeming Love" as her statement of faith. First published by Bantam Books and then rereleased by Multnomah Publishers in the mid-1990s, this retelling of the biblical story of Gomer and Hosea, set during the time of the California Gold Rush, is now considered by many to be a classic work of Christian fiction. Redeeming Love continues to be one of the CBA's top-selling titles, and it has held a spot on the Christian best-seller list for nearly a decade. Since "Redeeming Love," Francine has published numerous novels with Christian themes--all best sellers--and she has continued to win both industry acclaim and reader loyalty around the globe. Her Christian novels have been awarded or nominated for numerous honors, including the RITA Award, the Christy Award, the ECPA Gold Medallion, and the Holt Medallion in Honor of Outstanding Literary Talent. In 1997, after winning her third RITA Award for inspirational fiction, Francine was inducted into the Romance Writers of America's Hall of Fame. Francine's novels have been translated into over 20 different languages, and she enjoys best-seller status in many foreign countries, including Germany, the Netherlands, and South Africa. Francine and her husband, Rick, live in northern California and enjoy time spent with their three grown children and taking every opportunity to spoil their grandchildren. Francine uses her writing to draw closer to the Lord, and she desires that through her work she might worship and praise Jesus for all He has done and is doing in her life.
