After catching her boyfriend cheating on her, Becky Sawyer decides she’s had it with love. This declaration puts her in quite the predicament, however, when she learns that not only is her beloved grandfather who raised her dying, but his last wish is to see her happily married. Turning to scripture for solace, Becky comes across the story of the deep love and commitment shared by Isaac and Rebekah even though they had an arranged marriage. Her mind made up, she asks her best friend to accomplish the impossible in modern times- find a man who is willing to marry her without even meeting her first. Lisa finds the perfect match in Luke Masterson- her boyfriend’s cousin. After presenting the arranged marriage idea to Luke, he immediately refuses. But as he, too, begins searching for God’s direction, he finds himself thinking about Becky and the idea of marrying her constantly until he senses the Holy Spirit nudging him to make a commitment to love Becky and marry her. As the two tie the knot and are joined as husband and wife, they face many challenges including getting to know one another, slowly building intimacy, and creating a foundation of trust as they try to carve a path to lasting love.
In a modern culture where commitment seems disposable, The Isaac Project stands as a beacon of promise of what God’s vision of “death do us part” should look like as love being a choice made daily by two people. I was so intrigued with the concept of this plot because arranged marriages in modern day America are completely unheard of. As I read, I found that the arranged marriage was the perfect backdrop for displaying what “commitment” truly means. I love that Luke went into the marriage with eyes wide open choosing to love her, protect her, shelter her, partner with her, and woo her with the expectation that the “romantic” type of love would eventually follow. Oh my and his wooing! How sweet, tender, and at times playful it was! Amazing story that showcases the depth of love God intended a couple to share in the cocoon of marriage.
This review contains my own thoughts and opinions. I have not been compensated by the publisher or author in any way.
"The Isaac Project" was a beautiful, modern tale version of a popular Biblical story. In this novel, we find Rebekah looking for her 'Isaac,' instead of 'Isaac' looking for his Rebekah; however, this does not stop this resilient young lady from finding the man that God has destined for her.
Can Becky and Luke make a marriage work, while also being two strangers? Can they trust that God has everything planned for their good according to His purpose? Will this work or are they destined to fail? Only faith in God above can take a relationship such as this and turn it into praise to Him alone!
God truly works through a man that is totally sold out to him
Thanks for a really good read.
When Becky decides to request her friends help in finding her a husband, things get a little crazy. As the end nears for her grandfather, Becky is adamant that she must get married before his death.
This is when Luke comes into the picture. He is the cousin of her friend's boyfriend and he is a HOT fireman. But most importantly, he is a Christian. He will have to relocate to accept this arrangement. And so he does.
An adventure begins as these two try to get married, get to know each other, develop a relationship and fall in love.
The book was engaging and emotional, it kept me captive all the way through and anxious to start reading again the next day.
