My Name Is Tamar – A Tale From Ancient Canaan
Humiliated, abused and in danger of being murdered, with only her sister to help her, Tamar devises a desperate plan to force the one man who can save her to tell the truth. Will Judah tell the truth, or will he lie and have her burned to death?
What had looked like a very lucky arranged marriage for Tamar quickly turned into a nightmare. Now she is challenging Judah and his stern God to give her justice.
My Name Is Tamar is an imaginative re-telling of one of the least read stories in the Hebrew scriptures and it is definitely not a story for children.
