Summary

The soft melodic story of women in scripture unfolds through the prayers and reflections crafted by an artist, a writer, a woman deeply aware of the need for women to connect to God in daily conversation. Each chapter of readings is based on a woman from Jewish or Christian history and how her story intertwines with the faith journeys of women today. With this book, Jan Richardson, author of the best-selling book Sacred Journeys, considers how women have embodied and passed along the Word from generation to generation and how women of this generation draw upon that wisdom in our daily lives and connect with women who have sought God's wisdom. The six women featured are: The Beginning of All Things: The Book of Eve; A Habit of the Wildest Bounty: The Book of Brigid; A Way in the Wilderness: The Book of the Desert Mothers; Say What You See: The Book of Hildegard of Bingen; The Mysteries of Making: The Book of Harriet Powers; and In the Garden of Delights: The Book of the Bride.
