Book Description

When a mysterious stranger enters Gina Elliot's life just as her world crashes down, she has a decision to make. Will she listen to his story? Can this stranger help her turn her life around?

Lessons from Jericho is a story within a story. Interwoven into the novelette's narrative are life lessons from one of the Bible's most intriguing stories. A short discussion guide is included. This novella is akin to a parable. It is a snippet in one person's life, and is a story of how one person can influence others.

In this short work Kristie Dean introduces us to Gina, a rising young professional on the fast track to achieving all she thought she wanted from her career, a fine reputation and money, lots of money. Things don’t go according to Gina’s plan, but God has a far greater plan in store for her life. He has placed in her path a mentor. Gina is invited into a series of life lessons by Ben Mather, a millionaire, who is “paying forward” the gift bestowed upon him by his own mentor when he was a young man. This story rapidly and completely endears the reader to the characters. It leads the reader through the biblical story of Joshua and his struggle to have faith, to listen, and to wait upon God. There are many lessons for the reader to take away from this tale of God’s providence. Readers will be enthused to find a summarized list of the lessons at the close of the book. They will also find a set of questions designed to guide readers through a study group or personal introspection. This work is written on a level to appeal to readers of all ages, and all levels of faith. Prepare for a fulfilling reading experience, and enjoy “Lessons from Jericho”.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read! February 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoyed Lessons from Jericho immensely. The lessons that the author gleans from the biblical story of Joshua are ones that the reader relates to and can use in life. Like the main character in this book, I once lost a job and had to learn to rely on God. I am thankful every day that His plans are better than mine! Lessons from Jericho reminds us that God is in control. We only need to trust in Him. Thank you, Kristie Dean, for allowing God to use you to extend His message to us.

4.0 out of 5 stars Is that all? May 19, 2013

This is a nice light read, and I did enjoy the story. An prolific reader will finish this book before they are fully settled into their favorite chair. Things progress so fast that I felt I was reading a RD Condensed Version. The story is not so much about Israel & Jericho but uses the events of Jericho as a backdrop. The tale is spun around two lives that 'just happen' to cross paths at a critical time for both. Remember however, the Bible is not about you, and inserting ourselves into bible stories is a misapplication of scripture.

A delightful story of how God comes into your life; simple but true. It's a short read with thoughts for discussion. Great for a family group. Enjoy
