The story of Rahab, a great hero of the faith, is often glossed over because of her scandalous profession. In Tracy Groot’s “impressionistic retelling” of the Rahab account in Joshua 2, the artful novelist renames the character Brigitte and sets her in World War II France as a spy for the French Resistance. As she battles hunger, fear, and shame, Brigitte’s hope grows as she helps the cause, working with a downed American fighter pilot masquerading as a Dutch conscript. Scrupulously researched and lovingly written, Flame of Resistance plunges the reader into an exhilarating story of courage, grace, and one endearing woman’s leap of faith. (Tyndale House)
