Item description for Drawing from Wisdom's Well: Stories, Celebrations, and Explorations of Courageous Women of Faith by Gloria Ulterino...
Overview The Samaritan woman, Martha, Julian of Norwich-if these women could speak to us today, what would they say? About their lives, about their faith . . . and about ours? Gloria Ulterino brings to life these and many other women of faith in this extraordinary collection of communal celebrations. Firmly rooted in contemporary scholarship, set in the context of prayer and reflection, and charged with the energy of the author's imaginative gifts, these celebrations involve us in the stories, the struggles, the hopes, and the deepest convictions of these amazing women of scripture and history. Each of the thirteen prayer services is accompanied by an intriguing background study that situates the lives of these women-named and unnamed-in their own time and place. The celebrations faithfully portray each one and draw out the connections to the experience and concerns of contemporary women of faith. The rituals gently lead participants to pray with their own struggles with faith and the church, and to discover the constant presence of holy Wisdom in it all. Ideal for small faith sharing groups, retreat settings, and larger communal settings, Drawing from Wisdom's Well brings a sense of solidarity and hope to contemporary women on a journey of faith.

Engaging Women May 30, 2003
This book is very rich--a great source of prayer/liturgy but also wonderful stories and backgrounds of wise women. I found the feminine essence of this book to be surprising and enjoyable. The writing is so lovely and vivid, it seems that I have met the Madres of the Plaza de Mayo and Julian of Norwich.
