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.
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.
Yes, it is well written and narrated.
The story is from Genesis and is a lesson on what we are expected to do in God's eyes.
No I has no extreme emotions, initially it was written by the Holy Spirit.
Francine Rivers has a talent for making biblical stories come alive. She shows us what happens when we point a finger at the other guy. It's sort of an examination of conscience.
The narrator is the best one I have heard in making her characters sound totally like a man as well as a soft voice of a lady. No confusion in identification.
Probably not. I can't remember ever reading or listening to a book more than once, except for when I was a kid.
It brought the bible story to life. It was incredibly interesting and the narration is excellent.
