    1 thought on “A Lineage of Grace: Five Stories of Unlikely Women Who Changed Eternity”

    1. I am a big fan of historical fiction, and historical fiction that stirs my affection for the Lord is even better. I really enjoyed these five stories. In each book I was struck by how awesome God is -- that he would use such broken, unremarkable people in such amazing ways. A prostitute, a foreigner, an adulteress, a peasant -- all used by God, ultimately leading to the birth of the son of the God of the Universe.The stories themselves are also enjoyable and quick reading. I am familiar with eac [...]

    2. Overall, this book was a terrific read, and it was difficult for me to put it down, because it was easy, intriguing and engaging. I appreciated the addition of the Bible study incorporated at the end of each novella, even though I did not engage myself in them. I was more interested in reading the book rather than lengthen the time by engaging in the Bible study at this time.Particularly, I am looking for leadership principles and this gave five women, each of historic and Biblical validity and [...]

    3. These 5 woman in the linage of Christ are simply amazing ladies! Francine Rivers tells their stories in such a heart warming way. You laugh, cry, get angry and truly feel for each of them. I have read their stories several times over the years in the Bible account but never really felt that I understood them like I do now! Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba and Mary. It's no wonder they are listed in the blood line of Christ. Francine follows the Biblical account but has researched the historical asp [...]

    4. A Lineage of Grace profiles the lives of Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary with imaginative and fictional stories created by the author. Sometimes the accounts seem overly romanticized and probably more true to modern western thinking than historic Jewish culture. It is helpful, though, to remember that these biblical women were real people. It’s also a good reminder that God uses the humble, lowly, sinful ones among us to be part of His overarching plan of redemption.

    5. This is all five stories via five women and how they find the grace of the Lord including the lineage of Jesus Christ. I believe this is the first time I read this author and loving it so far!Unveiled: Tamar's story of being unloved but not forgotten. It was believed that she had a curse on her husbands, or the first two line of Hebrew men since it was there custom on both sides (Canaanite and Hebrew Jew) to marry next male child in line if your first husband dies. She had to dress and become a [...]

    6. This book is a mixture of 5 different women's stories from the Bible. I think the biggest obstacle for any writer tackling the Bible is turning it into somewhat of a fiction story while still keeping the original message in tact. I loved the first two stories immensely (Tamar and Rahab). Not a lot of information is in the Old Testament about the two women and the way Francine wove in historical information and their faith really inspired me. Ruth was decent, but by Bathsheba, I was losing intere [...]

    7. Beautifully written and easy to comprehend, this book gives the stories of five prominent women of the bible and their struggles. Rivers does an excellent job of putting biblical allegory in laymen's terms and even includes studies at the end of each story. I highly recommend this book. The only reason it didn't receive 5 stars is because the study questions were not as thought provoking as they could have been. I suppose I was looking for a study that was a little more atypical, however, the qu [...]

    8. I am just about done with this book. and I LOVED it! (love itnce I am still in the midst of the last story about Mary). The first story just kind of.ended. However as you read the following stories, they are much more in depth and very well written. Although it is historical fictionI understand so much more about these women and why they may have made the decisions they made. Very well written, very intriguing. And that cover! Beautiful!!!

    9. Francine Rivers is the only Christian fiction author I can stand to read. She develops plots and characters in an enchanting way. This collection of stories is particularly wonderful because it is Rivers' interpretation of the lives of five women who made up the lineage of Christ. Rivers reconstructs what their lives must have been like in biblical times and the struggles they overcame to bring a royal Messiah into the world.

    10. I can't even explain the spiritual effect that book had on me. Yes, it was just a book full of old, some well known, others not as familiar Bible stories of women as perceived by one author. But if anything is clear about this book it's that God used it in my life. May God bless every person who uses there talents for the good of His Kingdom. I highly recommend this book, as well as the author, to anyone who enjoys reading.

    11. Great book. Loved how the author made their stories relatable and personable while staying true to the Bible's account.

    12. Beautiful collection of stories recounting the 5 women who played irreplaceable roles leading up to Jesus' life. Powerfully and beautifully written!

    13. A compilation of Francine Rivers’ previous ‘mini-books’, Lineage of Grace shares the lives of the women who are in Christ’s bloodline. What some readers may recognize as the books Unveiled, Unashamed, Unshaken, Unspoken, and Unafraid are now all firmly ensconced in one cover for your reading pleasure.Rivers writing remains strong, insightful, beautiful and touching. With deep revelation and understanding about the lives of these women, Rivers touches on common sense ideas that most would [...]

    14. This book told the stories of Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary from their point of view. It was amazing to see what these women went through on a daily basis just to survive. I can't imagine the strength these women had to withstand the treatment they received from society, men, and even other women. The author's writing is powerful and engaging. The book shows you different aspects of their lives, both good and bad. You get a true sense of how these women felt, and you will feel for them [...]

    15. I loved this book. Five stories of five important women in the Bible. Whether prostitute or peasant, their faith put them in the path of God's grace, and a lineage to our Savior. Another author who does her historical homework and adds flesh to her characters. Beautiful.

    16. This contains the story of 5 unlikely women, Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary, whom God used to bring about His promised Messiah. Each woman is portrayed, I believed, accurately based on Scripture, but with some imagination from the author to "flesh" them out and fill in the gaps of their stories. One thing I love about the Bible is that it doesn't shy away from people's faults. This book also shows these women and the things they did well, and not so well. I loved it. These were real wom [...]

    17. i loved this book. i am, in general, a francine rivers fan, but i thought this was some of her best work. it's five short novels about five of the women in jesus' lineage. the author makes them REAL people. i think a lot of times i romanticize biblical characters, and although FR is a romance novelist, she does a really good job in this series particularly of showing how broken these women are, and how messed up life is, yet how God works amidst them. refreshing and encouraging.

    18. I am a huge fan of Francine Rivers and her writings. That being said, I went into this without high expectations for some reason. I just finished the last story last night and I am in awe. Although this is fiction, I was really impressed with all of her insights and observations about very familiar Bible stories.

    19. Overall an interesting read that encouraged me to go into the Bible and read the original story of each of these women. I did struggle with the authors license to flesh out the stories of what could have been, enjoyed it nonetheless.

    20. Muy bueno! Super recomendable, ayuda a pensar y meditar mucho más profundamente sobre personajes que nos pueden enseñar un montón y a veces los pasamos por alto

    21. I liked the stories of Tamar, Rahab & Ruth, but the stories of Bathsheba & Mary had a little bit too much creative license for me.

    22. This one's a collection of five novels. Or maybe they were novellas. All I know is that they were originally published as individual books. Each book took a story from the Bible and retold it (with some embellishments) from the perspective of the story's heroine. I read the first two back when I was desperate for something to read and decided I wanted the first one on my shelf. Years later, I picked up this compendium and bit by bit read through them all. Of course, such a lengthy reading schedu [...]

    23. Often times we read the Bible as an account of facts and history. It is easy to loose sight of the humanity of the Scriptures. The men and women spoken of in the Bible were real people with raw emotions, sinful tendencies, and negative self-talk. They were real, just like you and me. A Linage of Grace is a refreshing reminder of the humanity each character in the Bible possessed. This book challenges you to read the Bible and look beyond the words on the page and into the emotions of those whom [...]

    24. In my opinion, it is extremely difficult to write Christian fiction, and not make it sound sappy. Most Christian fiction try to revere the Bible, I get that. But the outcome isn't always the best that the authors could've done. A Lineage of Grace, by Francine Rivers, is just such a book. While I get she's trying to be as close to the Biblical text as possible, the stories feel like they are over-dramatised. There is too much crying, and it feels like the author is forcing me to feel the pain and [...]
