    Her name meant "date palm," and like her namesake, Tamar hoped to survive the harsh environment she was placed in: to bend but not to break. Rubbed with scented oil and arrayed in wedding finery, 14-year-old Tamar is thrust into a world of abuse, betrayal, and disillusionment when she is given in marriage to an evil, idol-worshiping man. In the face of her suffering, she must make choices: Will she let her new husband, Er, destroy her innocence and corrupt her? Will she leave the religion of the Canaanites and embrace the God of the Hebrews despite the life of misery she is cast into? Or will she fall into despair and become as wicked as her husband and his brothers?

    4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 59 libraries worldwide
    Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, ""she of Uriah"" and Mary all initially occupy places on the margins and consequently represent both those who are outsiders to Israel and those on the margins within Israel. The inclusion of these women in Matthew''s gospel serves to signal the importance of those on the margins in the ministry of the Messiah and to anticipate Matthew's rhetoric concerning the broadening of Israel's boundaries to include Gentile outsiders
