Item description for Clothed with the Sun by Joyce Hollyday...
Overview A contributing editor for Sojourners magazine introduces readers to women in the Bible--many of them unfamiliar--in 50 meditations that are grounded in the lives of biblical women. The meditations are designed to be used throughout the year, and questions for group discussion are included.
The Bible holds a great treasure of amazing women. They are judges and prophets, caregivers and teachers, prominent matriarchs of large clans or quiet disciples, women who suffered alone or sang joyous praises to God amid the crowds. Their stories come alive in these pages as they are interwoven with the lives of modern women, bound together by common threads of strength and courage in the face of vulnerability and violation. From Eve to Revelation's woman clothed with the sun--from the first creative impulse to the close of time--female energy has been and will continue to be a river of life and wisdom, of dignity and hope.

Reviews - What do customers think about Clothed with the Sun?
A unique biblical meditation study regarding women and the Bible! Feb 25, 2006
This book is designed to be read throughout a year. It includes an Introduction, an Epilogue, and fifty meditations divided into ten sections with five in each section. Scripture texts listed should be read with each meditation. This book is perfect either for individual use or for group use, if you can get enough of this book to use. The author quotes "There is a rich journey ahead; the women of the scriptures provide strong and witty and wonderful companionship. I hope that you will find living with each of them for a week, an experience to savor and cherish, as I have. And I pray that this year might be one of blessing as you walk, hand in hand with sisters in the faith, toward the light of wisdom and glory." I found this book refreshing and very enlightening - I totally enjoyed it!
