Jerusalem Rising: Adah's Journey (Tribes of Israel)

By Barbara M. Britton

Description:

When Adah bat Shallum finds the governor of Judah weeping over the crumbling wall of Jerusalem, she learns the reason for Nehemiah’s unexpected visit—,God has called him to rebuild the wall around the City of David. Nehemiah challenges the people of God to labor on the wall and in return, the names of their fathers will be written in the annals for future generations to cherish. But Adah has one sister and no brothers. Will her father, who rules a half-district of Jerusalem, be forgotten forever? Adah bravely vows to rebuild her city’s wall, though she soon discovers that Jerusalem not only has enemies outside the city, but also within. Can Adah, her sister, and the men they love, honor God’s call? Or will their mission be crushed by the same stones they hope to construct?

Book Takeaway:

Be strong and courageous and do God's work.

Why the author wrote this book:

I was amazed that the Bible listed the daughters of Shallum as workers on the wall of Jerusalem. Women construction workers in Nehemiah's day were rare.
