NEW CHRISTIAN NOVEL FILLED WITH ADVENTURE
ZACCHAEUS EXPERIENCES ROMAN OCCUPATION AND THE FAMILY SHAME OF LEPROSY AS HE SURVIVES IN THE HISTORICAL SETTING OF 2000 YEARS AGO.
Betty Ruth Weatherby travels the world and uses her experiences to create the Biblical Fiction of “The Winnowing Fork” to convey the message of God’s sustaining, eternal love.
The tax collector’s mother is banned with a skin disease when his father is conscripted by the occupying Roman army.
Follow Zacchaeus as he grows to love the sound and glitter of gold coins while his greed consumes him, overcoming even his love of family.
Zacchaeus in his lonely, self-isolation discovers that the real author of peace and serenity is in a man called Jesus whose father is God himself. Jesus passes through Jericho on his way to Passover in Jerusalem.
Zacchaeus tries to see through the crowd as the entourage passes:
“He yanked the leaves back again, and found the Rabbi looking at him,
His eyes fastened on Zacchaeus.”

More from Betty Ruth
Zacchaeus was always a puzzle to me. How did he become a hated tax collector and only
One meeting with Jesus turned his life around. So, I imagined a story, gave him a family and neighbors to create a life around him as he accumulated his “taxes.”

The Winnowing Fork is the first book I have read by Betty Ruth Weatherby. I thought it was pretty good. The writing style is a bit different and took a little bit to get used to. By the quarter of the way through, I was hooked and wanted to keep reading to find out what was going to happen to the characters. I enjoyed the historical details that made feel as though I was living among them. I thought it was a wonderful story to read set during the Biblical times.
I am giving The Winnowing Fork four stars. I recommend it for readers who enjoy reading clean historical fiction. I am interested in reading more releases from Betty Ruth Weatherby.
I received a paperback copy of The Winnowing Fork from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
