The Scarlet Cord

Full Product Description

  • For ages 9-13
  • This book is a dramatic retelling of Jericho's fall that will appeal to children
  • Kids will have a new way of approaching the Bible through novels such as this
From the writer of "Fire By Night" and the winner of SU's fiction competition comes another fiction story set at against the background of a great Bible adventure. Sekani and Tabia live in Jericho. They are great tricksters, but when they notice foreigners arrive at their Aunt Rahab's house, they find themselves having to fool the king's soldiers as they hide these men - Israelite spies! Not convinced the spies will protect their family when Israel attacks, they set out from the city to find the spies and get reassurance.

Gurion and Daya are Israelite children from the tribe of Asher. Gurion is frustrated by his father's lack of confidence in him and sets out across the plains to make a name for himself in the battle against Jericho. Trying to stop him making a big mistake, Daya sets out after him.In the deserted fields of Jericho the four children meet and both pairs realise that they are in the wrong place.

To play their part in God's plan, they need to be back home - Sekani and Tabia in their aunt's house, Gurion and Daya with Israel. The children realise that they have followed their own ways, rather than what God wants and face a struggle to get back. As the Israelites march round the walls of Jericho on the seventh day with Gurion among their number, Sekani and Tabia hang from a rope beneath the window marked with a scarlet cord.

Daya is hiding in the fields, watching the Israelite army get nearer and nearer... Through this fantastic adventure story, children aged 9+ will be able to explore the story of Joshua and Jericho from the point of view of children like them. They will investigate what it means to be part of God's bigger plan, and how sometimes we don't understand or want to do something we think is more exciting. They will encounter the idea of promises of protection and how God never breaks his promises.
