The Scent of Water
Naomi Zacharias’s new book The Scent of Water is now available. 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.
Reflecting on The Scent of Water, renowned speaker and apologist, Ravi Zacharias, offers the following: “Naomi has, in her young life, seen so much. Soon after graduating from Wheaton, she left for the Dominican Republic to work with orphans in the mountains of Jarabacoa. I remember going to visit her and seeing her get off a public bus with her backpack. I have watched her over the years visiting the world’s wounded and rejected. Her whole ministry is to women and children at risk. From Malaysia, to Pakistan, to India, to Thailand, to South Africa, to Kenya, to Holland, and numerous other countries, she has been in the center of listening to the cries of the human heart.”
