In this companion to her popular Hidden Women of the Gospels, Kathy Coffey offers thought-provoking stories of women who appear in the Gospels and Acts of the Apostles.
How might these women experience their encounters with Jesus? As in her first book, Coffey presents women of the New Testament, in the style of “midrash,” which adds depth and context to their stories. She retells them using the first person, so we “meet” these women as individuals, even those without names, such as “the woman who called out” or “the woman who caught crumbs.”
For readers seeking to encounter these figures and their stories in a new way this book will open the door.
