Quick Overview:

Join author Naomi Zacharias in traveling to different parts of the world, meeting people who have endured injustice and broken dreams. Read and gain a new awareness of global issues and the resilience of the human spirit while finding the adventure designed specifically for you by God!
Follow Naomi as she talks to women working in brothels in Mumbai; survivors of an Indonesian tsunami in which more than 160,000 lives were lost; a young girl waiting on an operation to save her life; and victims of domestic violence horrifically burned by fire. Be still with her when she realizes the pain she feels in the face of these extreme injustices reveals a common struggle that exists within all of humanity. And rise with her as she wrestles with confusion over her identity, comes face to face with redemption, and then begins to understand her own story … and to find her calling. The Scent of Water will open your eyes to the complexities of the world, showing you pain can also be beauty, and how each are found in the unlikeliest of places. Zacharias doesn’t have all the answers. But she has hope and encouragement that will empower you to find and begin the adventure of your life.

Review by Wendy
Overall Rating
God led me to Naomi's book through my interest in her father's lectures. My heart knows her story, many of those she told of others and so deeply feels her desire for all of us to rise up to meet God in the needs of ourselves and in others. To give grace, the same grace God freely gives us. I find so much joy in knowing I am not alone in the world feeling as I do about myself, the grace withheld from me by others and the grace I fiercely desire to give more of because of that. I also find so much joy knowing I now have the gift of this book to share with others who will find the echo through her words in their own story, as I did, while reading it. I'm just so thankful for God, our Grand Weaver, and His love for all of us...His children. :) Naomi...I'm forever grateful for your honesty and the truth you boldly stand for out loud! Thank you!
