strategies, she is forced to marry Yahweh’s high priest and enters the

My Review

The name Jezebel has become synonymous with a fallen, wanton, promiscuous woman. But what struck me about her in Mesu’s book was the power she wielded over three generations, across two nations. Through a depraved discipleship, she extended her reach far and wide, down to her granddaughter Sheba, the heroine of the book. In the Shadow of Jezebel illustrates in stark detail THE influence one person can have. But another powerful example from Jezebel is that of the hero, who through patient service, love, and prayer gently woos Sheba from Baal to Yahweh. The power of God will always be greater than the power of evil.
