Tokens of Promise by Teresa Pollard. Isbn: 978-1938708145

Teresa Pollard took a simple story from the Old Testament and fleshed it out to give us an idea of what really happened between Tamar and Judah. She makes you want to know more.

This book is the story of Tamar and Judah from the bible. Can Tamar get Judah to take a second wife after he vowed never to do this. Teresa tells us how Tamar is pushed from one of Judah’s sons to the next as they die. Will she get to be Judah’s wife or will she end up with Shelah?
Most Christians should enjoy this and those who want to learn more about stories from the Old Testament.
One message is to show that women do have some rights even back in the Old Testament though not near what they should have.
This story was both romantic and enticing. I needed to know more about this because I had not heard this story before.
I was not expecting there to be two parts to this story. It did give time for Tamar to age since she was very young when she met Judah and first became we’d to his sons.
I would recommend this book to most Christians and to anyone wanting to know more about the books from the Old Testament.
This was well written and easy to follow along with. Sometimes books written about the Old Testament can be very hard to understand. This was not hard to read.
I received this book free from the publisher through the bookcrash.com book review program, which requires an honest, though not necessarily positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
