What does a Roman Soldier, a Yemeni headdress, and the Bride of Christ have in common? Do gems, silk and honey have something to say together? What if the message of eternity was found in antiquity?Through practical research into down-to-earth materials, history and workmanship, Marilynn draws some interesting parallels to character God longs to see in the Bride of Christ. Lovers of history, archaeology, fine jewelry, fine food, bridal attire, fashion, and faith are invited to join her as she makes forays into Egypt, Yemen, Canaan, Rome and ultimately, the New Jerusalem.
This book seeks to answer the question, “How does God adorn His Bride in the Scriptures?” At first glance, this question seems entirely scandalous, particularly to the protestant evangelical or charismatic Christian. But as Marilynn observes, the notion is not out of line with those who worship female deities or who place prominent women in eternal places. Analogies, conclusions, and questions face men as well as women in this very different and eye-opening book.
