Description: A Time To Be Deborah is a study of the Biblical Book of Judges focusing on the account of the prophetess Deborah and the Israelite military general, Barak. It is a political and historical work that compares and contrasts today's American political scene with that of the Israelites, circa 1200 B.C., complete with pointed commentary and detailed statistics of the day. This book is a call to arms intended for contemporary Christian women supporting a need for education, activism, and a return to Christian values in our nation. Further, it is a plea for obedience to God's laws and commands coupled with a faithful desire for deliverance. This book reiterates a timeless warning that is as sobering in twenty-first century America as it was in twelfth century B.C. Israel. That warning may very easily herald the removal of God's hand from this land if historical lessons learned are not now applied. Do not consider entering the voting booth without assimilating this information and committing yourself to the prevention of the demise of this great land. Endorsements: ""Though addressed to women, this book will appeal to men as well. A Time to be Deborah is teeming with keen commentary that is clever, humorous, and stimulating. The book is insightful, compelling, and motivating. A must read--a powerful book "" --Pastor Bernie Larson, New Covenant Christian Center, St. George, Utah ""Joyce Carlin not only knows what she believes, but she cares enough to share her convictions with others. We are the beneficiaries of her efforts. Taking her cue from the book of Judges and the prophetess Deborah, Carlin provides a rapid-fire account of what truth has accomplished in the lives of faithful individuals, and what it ought to produce in the lives of people today. Carlin confronts the reader on nearly every page, combining a quick-witted style with a clear vision of what can happen when Scripturally-driven fervor grips our hearts. Though some may be infuriated (her word choice) by what she has to say, even those who don't agree with every nuance of her strategy will be unable to resist her humorous logic and her clear spiritual passion. Get ready to be challenged in a way that will make your smile, cause you to wonder, raise your ire, and ultimately challenge you to act. Through the prism of Deborah, Joyce Carlin prompts us to 'fight the good fight' of faith, to seriously and excitedly embody the truth that sets us free."" --Carmen C.
