I was looking forward to read this book, I had like the book about Mary maybe because we all know the story of Mary the mother of Jesus and I never heard of Rahab before but to me Mary seem more real and we could really feel her faith in God in her book but with Rahab I could not feel it. She got on my nerves, she was to harsh, she was so mad that her family and her people didn't believed in the God of Israel but how could they, they were raise to think in another God. The story was boring, Salmon saw her, she was so beautiful he fall in love with her and save her and her family, the story keep repeating itself and they show a punish God not a loving and forgiving one. So it was right that the Israelite killed everybody in Jericho, men, women, kids, young, old, animals, everything because God told them too, I don't think it's right, God is not suppose to be a forgiving one? Also they were told not to take anything for themself but only gold, silver...for God for his treasure, why he need that, he his materialistic??? And saying we have to obey God, we are the servants of God, I prefer the saying we are all a part of God, we are all his children and not just the Israelite!!! I really didn't felt the strong feeling of Rahab for God, why she have it, they just say, she don't really know but she felt it, well I could not feel her having it! In the Old Testament it seem like God his a punishing one, I prefer the one from the New Testament! The only good thing in this book it's a fast reading!
