Item description for Mother Roots: The Female Ancestors of Jesus by Helen Bruch Pearson...

Overview
The Culture of Bible Times rarely included women in any geneaology, yet in the Gospel of Matthew four women are named in the ancestry of Jesus: Tamar, Rahab, and Bathsheba. To enter their stories is to experience courageous women who had a vision of God's faithfulness and who brought about change. Jesus embraced his heritage and lived out his ministry in radical and unorthodox ways, influenced my his foremothers. These four women took the initiative at crucial stages and made decisions that changed the future. Their lives were empowered by God. The book's final chapter is an homage to Mary, the mother of Jesus. The book is written primarily for small groups and contains six chapters that offer a fresh perspective on biblical women who served as vehicles of God's message.

Publishers Description
Most Christians are familiar with the story of Mary, the mother of Jesus, but other women also are named as Jesus' foremothers. In Matthew's Gospel, four women are named in the genealogy of Jesus: Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, and Bathsheba. Mother Roots invites readers to take time to learn from these women's stories in the Bible.

Why were these four women included and no others? To enter the stories of Tamar, Rehab, Ruth, and Bathsheba is to experience strong women who had a vision of God's faithfulness and brought about change. Helen Pearson shows that Jesus embraced his heritage and lived out his ministry in radical and unorthodox ways, influenced by his female ancestors. Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, and Bathsheba reflected crossroads and turning points in the history of Israel. These four women took the initiative at crucial stages and made decisions that changed the future. Their lives were empowered by God. In addition to these four women, the book's final chapter deals with Mary.

Mother Roots is written primarily for small groups and contains six chapters. Mother Roots offers a fresh perspective on biblical women that is a worthy follow-up to Pearson's earlier study, Do What You Have the Power to Do.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mother Roots: The Female Ancestors of Jesus?

Great study for a Sunday school class or small group  Mar 28, 2007
The women's Sunday school class that I teach is enjoying this book study. It leads us into great discussion of both the Bible and current events. I love it when a study can do both!
 
Not review -- info from www.UpperRoom.org/bookstore  Mar 6, 2006
I had to give it a rating to submit a review, but I have not read this book yet. I came to this site.com to get more information about it after seeing it in the Upper Room catalog. Here is the information per the catalog: "In Matthew's Gospel, four women are named in the genealogy of Jesus. They are Tamar, Raham, Ruth and Bathsheba. At the right time, these women appeared and made decisions that changed the future. They were empowered by God to step beyond the patriarchal structure on which they depended. This book challenges our understanding of how God works through our lives and in the larger world."
