Book Launch Team!



It’s here! The Tamar Bible study is a go for



Nothing can thwart God’s plan for your life
—not even you.

If God can choose the Canaanite Tamar to continue the line through which Christ would come, can anything keep Him from weaving your story into His redemptive plan?

Tamar, daughter-in-law of Judah, is the first woman listed in the lineage of Christ. Mistreated, widowed twice, betrayed, and used as a prostitute… it seems impossible that God could redeem her story, but His plan of redemption was prewritten for all eternity-and nothing can get in His way.

Through this six-week, in-depth Bible study, you will discover that no matter life’s twists and turns or your sins and failures, there is a God working behind the seen, redeeming it all for His glory.


Shadia is a passionate Bible teacher, author and speaker who has a heart for seeing lives transformed by the power of God’s Word. She holds a master’s in biblical and theological studies from Western Seminary and a masters in criminal justice from the State University of New York. In addition to the TAMAR study, Shadia is author of several books and Bible studies, including HAGAR: Rediscovering the God Who See Me, LEGION: Rediscovering the God Who Rescues Me, and Worthy of Love: A Journey of Hope and Healing After Abortion.

If you enjoy squeezing every delicious drop of truth from the stories found in Scripture, Shadia Hrichi’s new study on Tamar will delight you! She handles God’s Word with exceeding care, pointing us to the many vital lessons worth learning and applying to our own lives. As a Bible teacher, I especially appreciate the options she offers small groups, from a light or moderate time commitment to in-depth or all-in. As an all-in woman, I love the depth and breadth of the questions to consider, the Bible verses to ponder, the word studies to review, and the compassionate unfolding of Tamar’s story. When you go Behind the Seen with Shadia, you are in very good hands!

After going through Shadia’s Bible study on Hagar, I couldn’t wait to see what she would do next.  Tamar is another outstanding Bible study, rich in historical detail, cultural insights, and applicable life lessons for us today. I appreciate Shadia sharing personal stories from her own life (some heartbreaking, some amusing), which help shine light on Tamar’s story. Perfect for personal and/or group study.

When you embark on a Shadia Hrichi Bible study, know that you are in good hands. I love how she talks directly to you, cheering you on . . . Tamar’s life altered the trajectory of human history, and this very engaging study will put those pieces together for you in this powerful picture of God at work in the midst of a mess. Highly recommended.

Shadia is an engaging and knowledgeable guide who holds her reader’s hand throughout the broader story of Tamar, while still creating room for individuals to listen for God’s truth specifically for them. She integrates passages from both the Old and New Testaments, so those looking for an interactive but comprehensive approach to understanding the Biblical narrative will be equipped to dive deep into this story of redemption.

From the first pages of this in-depth Bible study, Shadia Hrichi reveals her knowledge of Scripture and her desire for us to be transformed by truth. With consideration for the whole counsel of God’s Word, Hrichi dives deep into the story of an abandoned woman to show us that God makes the powerless secure and invites the abandoned to belong.
