Release date: September, 2022
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.”

The author weaves a backstory of Zacchaeus riddled with hardships for him and family which brings culture relevance to the forefront as we see what shapes Zacchaeus into the man he was when he encounters Jesus. I loved how the setting of what was happening in that time period and area and religious culture and beliefs comes alive and makes you feel as if you're there experiencing it for yourself. If you enjoy Christian Fiction or Historical Ancient/Biblical Time Period Historical Fiction this book is a must-read! This book had me hooked from the very beginning and kept me engaged to the very end!

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.”
