Publishers Description
?Jesus made no secret about his feelings toward women, ? Joanne Turpin says. ?He gifted them with his healing touch, invited them to be among his disciples and welcomed them as friends. In turn, they supported his mission, followed him along the dark road to Calvary and remained faithfully near the tomb. Jesus rewarded their fidelity with the supreme joy of being the first witnesses to his Resurrection. That's where the story of women in the church begins?and a glorious beginning it is.? From first-century Rome's Prisca the Evangelist, companion of Paul, to Dorothy Stang, a missionary sister in twenty-first century Brazil, Joanne Turpin takes us on the lively and adventurous journeys of twenty-one women invaluable to the twenty-one centuries of Catholic church history. Each woman included in this inspiring volume for her exceptional contribution to the Catholic church also portrays personal holiness and moral courage.

Reviews - What do customers think about Women in Church History: 21 Stories for 21 Centuries?

Devotion to Loving Service  Oct 28, 2007
From Prisca, who preached alongside Paul in first-century Corinth, to Sr. Dorothy Stang, martyred as she worked among the poor in twenty-first century Brazil, Joanne Turpin's women in church history are models for Catholic men and women everywhere. Turpin delivers on her promise to illuminate "her-story" through figures marked by personal holiness, moral courage, and important contributions to development of the Church. In an introductory overview, the author reminds us that Jesus, the apostle Paul, and a host of male saints supported women and encouraged them to use the gifts God gave them. Their stories show a devotion to loving service in roles such as reformer, humanitarian, teacher, missionary, writer, and mystic. Each entry begins with background on the political, cultural, and religious climate of the time and the circumstances into which the woman was born. The stories, all written in the present tense, are engaging, informative, and at times painful.

I was saddened by the chronicle of violence inflicted by political leaders over the centuries in an effort to silence many of these women and their fellow Christians who stood up for their beliefs. And I found certain notes on church history especially interesting. For example, the role of deaconess, instituted in apostolic times, expanded significantly in Alexandria during the early 200s as the number of converts increased. Baptismal rituals called for entering the water naked, so women were needed to oversee the immersion of female candidates to avoid any hint of scandal.

The fact that this book can spark intellectual curiosity while evoking sorrow for those who have given their lives and pride in being even remotely associated with them is a tribute to the author.
 
Encouragement from 21 Centuries  Mar 8, 2007
It was a great book and one I will return to. For women who feel they are alone in a men's church. It was great to see these dynamic women, read their stories, celebrate their success in following the Gospel in the place and time they found themselves.
