Journal Entry 2 by jennannej from Coronado, California USA on Saturday, May 21, 2005
A well written book. I am not sure what to say about this book. I found parts of it quite interesting and thought the author crafted her story very creatively. However, I did not enjoy her secular view of the old Bible story. Jacob and his sons were turned into brutal, unforgivable, barbarous men. God was turned into "El", one of many, many gods worshipped in this story. I agree that Jacob and his sons did some terrible things, and his family carried idols of other gods, but she went too far and changed too many things. In the book, Jacob works 7 months (not years) for Rachel.

It is interesting to get a different perspective on the story though, and to consider how things might have been. I appreciate that about this story.

Read the origial version of this story in the Bible in Genesis 20-50.

This will be sent off next week to nyisutter for a book club.

Thank you so much for sending this book! The First Baptist Readers will be reading this book in July. It should be an interesting discussion.

I have read the book before and agree with the previous journal. It was an interesting look at a familiar story but it was hard to stomach some of the changes to the Biblical account. But it was great for getting me to read the actual account more closely!

If you enjoyed this book, you might also try Thorn In My Heart, Fair Is The Rose, and Whence Came A Prince by Liz Curtis Higgs. She wrote on the same story, but in 18th century Scotland. Another interesting look at a familiar story, written from a Christian perspective.

Thank you for providing the St. Charles First Baptist Reading Club with The Red Tent, it was a very interesting read. Although I wonder about how much research she really put into the book. It was a very interesting version on the story in the bible, but so factually incorrect.

This was put back in the book exchange box. There were several copies in there, so I am offering this up on my book swap list.

I like this book but Im not in love with it. I like the story. The authur does an awesome job of telling a story. The only reason why im not 100% on board with it is some of the content I thought was upseting but thats no fault of the author.
