A Fearless Leader: A Bible Story About Deborah
Based on the Old Testament story in Judges 4-5, A Fearless Leader follows the biblical narrative of the heroine Deborah, imagining how she responded to the events recorded in Scripture.
In this retelling of the story, Deborah is an imaginative and perceptive young girl who makes good decisions in the heat of the moment. When she sees her village is about to be invaded by King Jabin and his general, Sisera, she bravely warns the people of danger, and everyone manages to escape. But that doesn't stop Jabin and Sisera's vicious attacks.
As Deborah grows up, she becomes a natural leader, sharing God's will with the people and helping them solve difficult problems. Eventually, God calls her to help defeat Sisera's army so Israel can finally live in peace.
Reading this together with your child will give opportunities to talk about following God and being courageous even in very difficult situations.
