Can a Canaanite harlot who made her living enticing men be a fitting wife for a leader of Israel? Shockingly, the Bible’s answer is yes.
This 10th anniversary edition of Pearl in the Sand includes new features that will invite you into the untold story of Rahab’s journey from lowly outcast to redeemed child of God. Rahab’s home is built into a wall, a wall that fortifies and protects the City of Jericho. However, other walls surround her too, walls of fear, rejection, and unworthiness… Years of pain and betrayal have wounded Rahab’s heart—she doubts whether her dreams of experiencing true love will ever come true…
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.
Biblical Fiction at its Finest
If you enjoy Francine River’s historical or biblical series, you will love this! So good. Made me cry and made my heart beat fast a few times. Seriously, the best retelling of Rahab I have ever read.
The writer second guesses her writing ability but I as an avid reader including Bible studies this is one of the best books I have ever read. I mean that sincerely. The story was believable in fact you wanted it to be true. The characters grabbed me within seconds of starting the book and I could hardly put it down. But the best part was relating to the issues Rehab dealt with. You related her to each of us in so many ways. I may not have ever been a “zohan” but I have dealt with rejection from a loved one, disappointed in what I thought was true, and believing that God‘s love, forgiveness, His view of who I am didn’t apply to me. I still deal with hurt but learning to deal and your book helped me to grab hold of God’s love, strength, confidence not matter what anyone does to me. Sincerely Thank You from the bottom of my heart! Keep writing!
Rahab fascinates me. I love how the author brought her to life!
