Pearl in the Sand | Book Review


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.

Publisher: Moody Publishers

If you love biblical fiction, do not skip Tessa Afshar’s Pearl in the Sand!

Rahab’s story is not an unfamiliar one, as she plays an important role in the battle of Jericho. Still, Afshar depicts her in a fresh way, exploring not only the possibility of walls built by fear and shame, but also how they crumble when faced with faith and love. It is a story of redemption and new beginnings—it is so, so good.

This 10th anniversary edition of Pearl in the Sand beautifully repackages this lovely story. Whether you pick up a copy to read for the first time or to reread, it is worth it, I promise.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
