Unveiled is a beautiful and uplifting story about the Canaanite woman Tamar, who was married to the great-grandsons of Abraham and the daughter-in-law of Judah.Although Christianity is often disparaged for the poor treatment and bland roles of women, this novelization points out the intense courage and faith of a woman who took YHWH as her own god.Risking a slow, painful death by stoning or burning as well as eternal shame and humiliation, she made sure she had a son to carry on the name of Judah and to care for her.
To read these stories and see past the role of the men to what the women are doing in the background, you really see how the God of all uses both sexes.Women, as the ones who bear children and (traditionally) manage the household, are actually in a place of great responsibility and honor.Tamar, Ruth, Esther, Mary, and all the other women of the Bible took risks as great as the ones Joseph, David, and all our other Biblical heroes did.
As a Christian women, it's comforting and uplifting to hear the unsung stories of my foremothers in the faith.The risks they took and the humility they showed in the face of danger, death, and dishonor helps me to remember my faith in trials.Faith is the single hardest commodity to hold on to, but each woman's story shows it.It's a vital and uplifting lesson.
Tamar's story was short, but I loved it and greatly commend Francine Rivers for taking on the task of writing it.Now, I'm off to find the other four in her series!
