Reviewed by: Donna Waln, ECLA board member

Church: Compass Church, Wheaton Campus


Title: Thief of Corinth

Author: Tessa Afshar

Publisher: Tyndale

Publication Date: 2018

Format: print book

Length: 359 pages


A young woman learns how to be a thief from her father. Family dynamics are convoluted. In some ways this book seems very contemporary. Healing is available.


Rating (1 to 5)

4 stars

Suggested Audience

Teen and adult women

Christian Impact

With it’s powerful ending, this book would be appropriate for an unbeliever.

Other Notes:

I would like to have had a map of the places mentioned and a list of characters and how they relate to each other.
