The Red Tent by Anita Diamant

An Inspiration and Enlightenment Workshop Book Review

The Red Tent CoverHow did nomadic, Mesopotamian women live at the time of Jacob? The author Anita Diamant answers this question with vivid images. The Red Tent is fine historical fiction that fills the wide gaps between the Old Testament’s dry verses. Historical fiction enables us to empathize with the people who lived at times long gone. This leads to a much deeper understanding of history than studying facts and dates only. Kudos to Anita!
