Being considered a professional is important. But most of us are 'old' professionals, not old in age, but old in thinking style and approach to living. Old professionals separate science and spirit and think in terms of either/or - 'you're either for me, or against me.' New professionals connect science and spirit and think in both/and terms.

The Story the Bible Couldn't Tell
A Note from the Author
Devorah is a work
of historical fiction, based on
biblical, scholarly and archeological data. Some characters as well as names
for places and things are made up to support the story and are not intended to
be correct, accurate or factual. The relevant Old Testament portions are Judges,
First Samuel and Second Samuel.
One of my favorite
references is Chronicles: News of
the Past, Volume One, now out of print, which describes biblical events as a
modern contemporary newspaper would. The book is actually printed on newsprint
broad sheets to add authenticity.
The Bible tells
us that 175 years after Moses led the Children of Israel out of Egypt, there
arose a woman, Devorah, a daughter of Ephraim, to be a Judge over her people, a
prophetess and a righteous example unto them. The Bible also tells us of
Devorah’shusband, Lappodoth; Barak, the
great Haibru general;Sisera the
Canaanite general; Yael the Kenite, slayer of Sisera; and of Sisera’s mother,
Betheena. The Bible touches only the
high points of their lives. What follows is a more complete story.
