The bible is filled with women of faith, bravery, and cunning. Here is one woman’s tale—as it might have happened…
“And the city shall be accursed…and all that are therein…only Rahab the harlot shall live…”—Joshua 6:17
Once, she was Rahab the Beautiful, eldest daughter of a weaver—and secret believer in her dead mother’s cherished Judaism. But when her hateful stepmother accused her of witchery, Rahab was banished to almost certain death in Jericho. Now the girl known as Rahab the Outcast has no choice but to mingle with the city’s untouchables—and join its ranks of prostitutes…
Even from the mire, Rahab keeps alive her faith in God. Then two Jewish spies for Joshua appear on her doorstep, begging her to hide them. Now, Rahab faces the biggest decision of her life: stay safe and slam the door in their faces—or help her fellow believers, and transform herself from harlot to heroine.

Baker & Taylor
The beautiful eldest daughter of a rug seller and a secret believer in her late mother's religion of Judaism, Rahab is banished by her spiteful stepmother to the streets of Jericho where she is forced to sell her body to survive, until two Jewish spies give her the chance to embrace her religion and rise above the mire.
