This book explores Zipporah (Moses' Ethiopian, Black, Midianite wife who was the daughter of Jethro [Raguel]and the sister of Hobab) as the heroine who God chose to assist Moses' efforts to lead his people from Egypt to the promise land. Few realize that she actually saved Moses' life. The book points to many other actions of women such as Abraham's wife, Keturah, where God has chosen Black women to step up to and meet the challenges in accomplishing His will. It shows that although God created races and kindred, He also expects us to look beyond the differences, reach for the gifts that each has to offer and work in love and unity on one accord.

It seems we no longer look beneath the surface of a person’s skin anymore, seemingly unable to get beyond the wrappings, ribbons, and box to see the gifts within each person. Instead of letting love teach us to see, we are letting hate blind us to the potentials and possibilities each one of our brothers and sisters in humanity has to offer, if only we ware willing to open our hearts and minds and receive.

This is the core of the message presented by Pastor Thornton Bell in his thoughtful treatise, Zipporah. Using biblical history and specific scripture, he explains Moses’ wife, Zipporah as one of the true unsung heroines of the Black race. Her actions set the tone for all Black women to follow in her footsteps, as Pastor Bell explains by tracing her lineage and relating her attitudes, behavior, faith, and beliefs to Black women today.
Concise, thoughtful and factual, Zipporah is an inspirational work for women of all races and faiths as they walk with God.



When I first read that Moses’ wife was a Black woman named Zipporah, I was ecstatic. Later, when I learned that Abraham had also married a Black woman named Keturah after the death of Sarah, I thought, it couldn’t be. I had read the Bible - how could I have missed that? Then, I asked myself, why not? Why could not these men have married Black women? Now, who would benefit from understanding their part of the story? Have twentieth century attitudes tainted our biblical perceptions of races? How much of what I think I understand about me is rooted in someone else’s subjective opinions?
The Holy Bible is full of stories about all kinds of people. So, since it is about all people, it must be about Black people, too.
Most commentaries tend to avoid head-on discussions about Blacks in the Bible for fear of being “politically incorrect”. When attempts are made, the truth is often replaced by contemporary racial considerations. Still, we will need to learn the truth about what God says about the Black people that He created. This book tackles the subject openly and honestly.
