Overview

The author of the groundbreaking Sacred Journeys returns with a book to treasure and to share with the women in your life. Jan Richardson, a gifted author, poet, and artist, believes it is essential for women to listen to one another and to bring the fullness of their lives, with all their wonders and messiness, into their life of prayer. Drawing from the often hidden wellsprings of women�s wisdom in Jewish and Christian history, this devotional book highlights six women from around the world and across the centuries: Eve, St. Brigid of Kildare, the Desert Mothers, Hildegard of Bingen, Harriet Powers, and the woman of the Song of Solomon. As she explores the themes their lives offer, Richardson invites us to enter the mysteries that lie at the heart of who we are.

What People are saying about this

Peter Storey
"To enter the Sanctuary of Women with Jan Richardson is to risk deep transformation, proof that this book is a God-gift. It journeys into the daunting spiritual landscapes traversed by those brave enough to wrestle with God's heart at close quarters. These womanly wisdoms are richly varied in their topography, but in each whether scripture's surprising Eve or Celtic Brigid or a Desert Mother or an emancipating Sojourner Truth or Jan herself is a wellspring of reflection and prayer dug very deep." --(Peter Storey, Former bishop, Methodist Church of Southern Africa )
Joyce Rupp
"This refreshing resource widens the mind, deepens the heart, and strengthens the soul of spirituality. Richardson skillfully takes us to the edge and then brings us back to the core of spirituality. This book contains marvelous treasure." --(Joyce Rupp, Author of numerous best-selling books, including Open the Door: A Journey to the True Self)
Phyllis Tickle
"If a book can indeed shelter the soul awhile and hold it close in beauty and peace, nurture and devotion, then this book most certainly does. It is, just as its title says, a sanctuary, a wayside station of prayer, and a site of worship for those blessed enough to enter here." --(Phyllis Tickle, Compiler, The Words of Jesus A Gospel of the Sayings of Our Lord)
