From the Publisher
. . . captures the spirit of Jesus' extraordinary treatment of women without compromising the reality that men authored such narratives. . . . In essence, her writing provides many meritorious points that will enhance our appreciation of both the struggle and status of women within the New Testament.
Judith Schubert, RSM, Professor of Religious Studies, Georgian Court College
. . . a thorough presentation of the great gift women have been to the church since its origin. Her style is intelligent and reflective at the same time. The stories of women that she tells and her insights and interpretations are always woven through the central character of Jesus. By the end of the book, the reader, woman or man, will feel surrounded by 'this great cloud of witnesses' who shaped the foundation of the church.
Maureen Crossen, RSM, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
. . . a feast for contemporary readers of women's stories from the Gospels, Acts and Letters. . . . Mary Ann liberates us from being content to leave the stories in first century tradition to the radical challenge of becoming the stories in Christian living.
Mary Margaret Pazdan, OP, Professor of Biblical Studies, Aquinas Institute of Theology
. . . sets out a grand buffet of interesting material for preachers, reflective readers, and discussion groups.
This book shows how the stories of women are an integral part of the gospel and its meaning for us.
This wonderful book will assist readers of all ages, male as well as female, in their reading and their appreciation of these biblical figures. Each reader will come away greatly enriched by Getty-Sullivan's competent presentation.
