New Release: Delilah

Book Title: Delilah
Author: Angela Hunt
Publication Date: June 7, 2016
Publisher: Bethany House

Description:
A Complex and Compelling Glimpse at One of the Bible's Baddest Girls

Life is not easy in Philistia, especially not for a woman and child alone. When beautiful, wounded Delilah finds herself begging for food to survive, she resolves that she will find a way to defeat all the men who have taken advantage of her. She will overcome the roadblocks life has set before her, and she will find riches and victory for herself.

When she meets a legendary man called Samson, she senses that in him lies the means for her victory. By winning, seducing, and betraying the hero of the Hebrews, she will attain a position of national prominence. After all, she is beautiful, she is charming, and she is smart. No man, not even a supernaturally gifted strongman, can best her in a war of wits.


My Review:
I was really interested to see how Angela Hunt would take a not-so-likeable character in the Bible and write a story on her. From the very beginning I liked how Delilah was portrayed.

What I love so much about Angela Hunt's books is that each one makes me think of the Biblical stories in a deeper sense. What past events may have caused the person to do the deed that they did? How were they affected afterwards? And what was God's ultimate will for their life? In Hunt's Delilah, I saw the story of Samson and Delilah in a whole new light.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
