Overview

If any one of you is without sin, let him cast the first stone.
John 8:7

Though she has remained nameless throughout the centuries, her story is timeless. Who is the woman of stones? How did she come to be at that place, at that time, caught in the very act of adultery, left as a guidepost for the ages, a lesson for everyone always?

She is from a poor settlement in a powerful Greco-Roman world. When Othniel bar-Ismael, a textile merchant from Jerusalem, arrives in her village, he is determined to take her for his wife. But the reality of living as a fine lady is not as grand as she thought it would be. When she meets the man of her dreams, an acquaintance of her husband's, her life is forever changed.

Caught with her lover, she is beaten and bruised, dragged and kicked to the Temple Courts. Her accusers hold their fist-sized stones, ready to challenge the new teacher and show him to be a fool who contradicts his own teachings. With a few wise words, the teacher makes her accusers go away. In the end, she must struggle to make sense of the second chance she has been granted.

    Highly Recommended

    While we are familiar with the few lines in the Bible, this book brings the woman alive, with feelings, wants, needs, and all the human characteristics. The Bible story becomes more real and illlustrates the interactions among all the participants. A reader who wonders, even if only now and then, about the people in any book, including the Bible, will enjoy the additional brush strokes, painting this woman, and many of the other people.

    G-D

    In the original Hebrew text, G-D was and is correct. The name of God is so holy they would not write it out.

    Ok

    Ok didn't like the fact that every time God was mentioned it was not spelled out but written G-d. It was also hard to follow at times.

    Stones a good read, just one problem

    Could you through the first stone I couldn't, 'Women of Stones' gives you inside look in what might have happened to the women Jesus set free of sin. Also, the double standard between men and women. What I have problem with is the writer does spell out the God instead uses G-d, like spelling out God would bring down the fire and brimstone it will not. Beside that I would recommend this book is good.
