The Scarlet Longing




Rahab. Jericho. The mere name evokes images in our minds of a prostitute, trumpets, and walls falling down. Of childhood Bible stories and songs with actions. But there is oh, so much more to the story than this!

Reading Proverbs 31 is maddening for every woman on the planet, and an unrealistic laundry list of unattainable perfection. What if we’ve been reading it all wrong? What if the most unexpected woman in the Bible is, in fact, a picture and foreshadowing of the Bride for whom Jesus will return? What if the Proverbs 31 woman is displayed for us to see through the life of Rahab, the harlot?

Men despise Rahab and long for the perfect woman of Proverbs 31. Women are amazed by Rahab and despise the impossible Proverbs 31 ideal. What if a fresh understanding of each could lead both men and women to emotional and spiritual, and creative freedom? In The Scarlet Longing, author Brenda VanWinkle shows the way out of our walls of limitation into the freedom and joy of fresh starts and new beginnings. Journey with the author back to Jericho and move from the confinement of being who you never wanted to be, to become the person you never dreamed it is possible to be.
