Wife to a gambler who took one too many risks, Rahab is sold as a slave to cover his debt. Forced into prostitution, she despairs of ever regaining her freedom and self-respect. But when Israelite spies come to Jericho and lodge at her house, Rahab sees an opportunity and glimmer of hope. In one risky moment she takes a leap of faith, puts her trust in a God she does not know, and vows to protect the spies from the authorities. And when the armies of Israel arrive weeks later, Rahab has no idea what kinds of challenges await her.
