Item description for Women in the Wings: 20 Biblical Monologues by Jacqueline Sharer Robertson...

Overview
Turn ordinary sermons into memorable occasions with this set of 20 dramatic monologues that can be used by female pastors, lay speakers, or other worship leaders. Women In The Wings highlights the role of women in the Christian story, as scripture passages are brought to life and interpreted by the women who were there. Each monologue tells the story of a biblical character, or of someone who might have witnessed the biblical narrative unfold. Women In The Wings provides a user-friendly approach to communicating the gospel through drama -- each thought-provoking monologue comes with theological reflections ("Making It Preach") plus staging instructions and performance tips ("Making It Play") that makes it accessible for anyone. And this material isn't just for use in worship -- it's also great for women's retreats or as discussion starters for Bible study. If you let the women in these monologues share the pulpit with you, together you'll preach the Word in fresh and meaningful ways.

Reviews - What do customers think about Women in the Wings: 20 Biblical Monologues?

Connections  Jun 2, 2006
The abilbity to put real, human characteristics to these women allows the listner, or reader, to connect with them. By adding this depth of personal traits make these women come alive and tell their stories. Sharer Robertson has created the backgrounds of women to enhance the tradtional Biblical stories and make them more meaningful to modern listners. Supplying dramatic story telling techniques also enchances the use of these monologues. What a wonderful way to bring the Bible to life! The continuity of emotions, spirit and humanitiy is bridged through these women's stories.
 
Man, There's Some Women for You  May 19, 2006
What an intriguing collection of Biblical figures -- and non-figures. Sharer Robertson brings refreshing insight into some familiar stories by positing the thoughts and feelings of those often overlooked -- the women who witnessed the ministries of Moses and David and Peter and, of course, Jesus.

The "non-"figures are often the most interesting -- unlike Hannah or Tabitha or Mary, who actually existed, telling a tale from the perspective of Reuben's daughter or Andrew's cousin brings new sensibilities into the old stories.

I especially enjoyed the tale of King David's Auntie -- as they say, she was a character, definitely not afraid to say what she thought. And I think the rich humanness of these women - even some who are only characters in a parable (the Foolish Bridesmaid, the Persistent Widow) - makes them relate easily to today's hearer.

And I do think these are best heard aloud. There is something about hearing them voiced by someone who's taken the time to absorb the character that will best convey the meaning. Sharer Robertson's "Making It Play" section before each piece will be particularly helpful with that -- she offers useful suggestions for 'getting into the skin' of the character she's presenting.

Ah . . my only regret is that I'm not woman enough to do these protrayals myself!
