Tessa Afshar: A SCARLET CORD

(September 1, 2010)
Rel Mollet
Tessa Afshar tackles the intriguing biblical tale of Rahab and Salmone in her debut, Pearl in the Sand (Moody). “The more I read about Rahab, the more amazed I became at her destiny,” Tessa shares. “This Canaanite harlot married one of Israel’s leading men, a man as close to a Jewish aristocrat as you can get in a country without kings and princes. How was that possible? I wrote this story because I hope the reader of this story will come away with a deeper glimpse into her own soul, and a more profound understanding of God the Father.”
