Pearl in the Sand
by Tessa Afshar
Moody Publishers
PB, 316 pages

Rahab is a character in the Bible who is a mystery. She plays a significant role, but little is told about her. The Bible lays a small foundation, but with little detail. Afshar took this knowledge and ran with it. Using the third person view of Rahab and the Israelite army, Afshar reveals how the Lord works in many ways. From the roots of her life of prostitution to her fear of love, Rahab’s story reveals how the love of God covers...
