One of the best books I have read in a long time. I deeply appreciated Afshar's tale of this story and accounting of some of the amazing things about storytellying and God. Truly a delightful read. It read like the mythology movies (Thor, Wonder Woman). Truly truly enjoyed this book!

I have just discovered Tessa Afshar's books, and I am so thrilled with them! I love how she weaves together historical details and spiritual truth. This book tells the story of Rahab. I love how the author explores the walled off isolation of Rahab and her journey from shame to acceptance in the Lord's (and her husband's) eyes.

Just finished this book and loved it. Tessa Afshar is a creative writer with depth that made this story so appealing and also challenging. It can be read on different levels--a love story, historical fiction, or devotional reading. Francine Rivers also has a book on the life of Rahab that was good. I wish I could remember what it was called. Maybe "Unashamed"
