Delilah: Treacherous Beauty


I was excited when I saw that Angela Hunt had written Delilah: Treacherous Beauty, because I have also read her novels about Bathsheba and Esther (Bathsheba: Reluctant Beauty and Esther: Royal Beauty). What is great about Hunt’s books is that she takes Biblical characters who are often given a bad rap, and portrays them as likeable, multi-faceted human beings (in a similar fashion to Jill Eileen Smith’s novel about Rahab, The Crimson Cord). Though Hunt obviously adds many fictional details throughout the novel, the basic storyline¬†still stays faithful to the Biblical account. I like novels based on Biblical characters, because they often influence people to read their Bibles more and delve deeper into Bible stories.
