Publishers Description This stirring book explores Jesus's heart and compassion for every woman -- giving them undeniable value and significance. Based on Jesus's encounters with women during the time of his ministry, this tender book uncovers how time and again Jesus went against the traditional conventions of his era by treating women with respect and love, showing the world what a vital role they play. Jesus lived in an era where women were considered property and of little value as significant individuals. But by following Jesus's example, readers will see how women should be cherished and uplifted. Each chapter touches on Jesus's interactions with a specific woman, their conversations, and the gifts he bestows upon her. One tells of the widow who was burying her son, only to have Jesus resurrect him. Another is of the woman who was crippled for eighteen years and how Jesus not only freed her from her physical malady, but freed her spirit as well. But more than a mere retelling of these encounters, this book is a love story -- a romance between the Creator of the universe come to earth and the women he came to know. Through these women, we see his love and compassion for every woman, and we watch as he lifts us all out of our ordinariness into the sublime intentions he planned for us since the beginning of time.

Compelling. Sep 11, 2009
This book is one-hundred percent the author's conjecture. There is very little factual basis for most of his suppositions. And, yet, it is one of the most compelling books about Jesus I have ever read. It goes through the stories of the different encounters with women in the Bible that Jesus had. Such as the woman at the well. The stories are all well known. The book still has a high interest factor, however, because the author does an amazing job of bringing out and giving personalities to the women. The author seems to have an unusually remarkable insight into the psychology and needs of women and it makes for a very moving re-telling of the Gospel stories. It is an interesting and compelling read. For women especially, who are so often rarely the focus of Biblical teachings, this book is a balm for the soul.

Just Plain Jesus Nov 22, 2008
"....Anyone who has seen me, has seen the Father...." (John 14:9) What a precious gift that the Lord has given to Bruce - such deep insight into the life of Jesus and an even deeper look into Jesus' heart - ultimately a beautiful and precious gift to us. This book displays so many different ways of seeing the women in Jesus' times and how they were treated and may have felt. Bruce has been able to bring those women alive for us to understand their hearts in those days; but, he also has been able to relate those women with the present day woman. Even though this book is about the women in Jesus' life and their struggles and how much he so very much loved them - the sweetest most precious part of this book is that it allows us to have an even deeper understanding of Jesus himself, His heart and His love and it draws us so much closer to Jesus. This book needs to be read by women, men and young adults alike and should become a staple in everyone's library!
