If you have read the bible then you already know how this story goes. This didn't spoil this book for me at all!! It was wonderful to see how God can use even the most infantile or feeble believers. The bible is read before and finishes with more passages, but in the middle there is the beautifully emotional story of Tamar (pronounced "Tae-mer" in this novel). I don't think she ever had a loving relationship until her children were born. You got to know all the characters in Juda's household and saw how he felt. I was appropriately duisgusted by his son's and rooted for Juda and Tamar's faith to uphold at every chapter. It is a short read, and one I recommend. Be forewarned, it is an emotional story, not a light read.
Words spoken in season is like a fresh rain.
Excellent read. Learned so much about Tamar from an different perspective.
She was good.
No extreme reaction.
This was a GREAT Book!
Good interpretation and knowledge,
memorable and also intriguing.
A small part of a bible story comes to life.
It helps you restructure your feelings towards our daily difficulties and our lack of understanding.
This story portrays courage and patience.
These stories are WAY better than television! What awesome insight into the challenging and rough life of one of the Bible's most intriguing women!
To read the story in its historical setting
To read about the experiences of each character, the tradition in that time and the problems they faced
It is like being right there when this story took place
Certainly Tamar, the problems she faced as a woman are to be taken seriously and not unlike those in some countries today.
I highly recommend this book. One experiences the story as if personally involved. It brings close the wider historical background and one gets familiar with these Bible characters and God Himself.
I really enjoyed listening to the story about Tamar and the narrator brought the story to life in the Bible and I had a greater understanding of the time of old in the Bible. How God used Tamar to show Judha that he needed God's forgiveness and to recognise once he confessed his sin God would restore Judha to the place he wanted Judha to be. Tamar was an amazing women because she suffered so much for a young girl at the age 14 , I have been truly blessed.
