Can a Canaanite harlot who has made her livelihood by looking desirable to men make a fitting wife for one of the leaders of Israel? Shockingly, the Bible's answer is yes.
Pearl in the Sand tells Rahab's untold story. Rahab lives in a wall; her house is built into the defensive walls of the City of Jericho. Other walls surround her as well: walls of fear, rejection, and unworthiness.
A woman with a wrecked past; a man of success, of faith... of pride.A marriage only God would conceive Through the heartaches of a stormy relationship, Rahab and Salmone learn the true source of one another's worth and find healing in God.
In Pearl in the Sand, Tessa Afshar has created compelling characters that bring new meaning to this well-loved biblical tale.
-- Jill Eileen Smith, bestselling author of Michal and Abigail
Pearl in the Sand, the story of Rahab the harlot who became an ancestor of Christ, delivers a very powerful truth within its pages: forgiveness, redemption, and the changing power of God. An unforgettable read, Novel Journey and I give a high recommendation.
