Item description for The Jesus Women by Marcy Alborghetti...
Overview Through these twelve women, readers are invited to reflect on the gospels in a whole new light, with hearts wide open to experience Jesus. They are invited to see him as these women did--and be forever changed. "Though everything I was to face--joys and horrors unknown to any woman but me--the Spirit was my strength, my only comfort. The Spirit cleaved to me despite my unspeakable anguish when Jesus died on the cross, but even then God was with me. Even then. Even now." --Mary, mother of Jesus These twelve extraordinary first-person narratives are from women who were contemporaries of Jesus Christ. Each experienced him in a unique way and each became a disciple in her own right. Mary, his mother; Anna, the prophetess; the widow of Nain; the Samaritan woman at the well; Martha and Mary, sisters of Lazarus; and seven others, all tell their stories about Jesus and the profound affect he had on their lives and their faith. Each story is drawn from Scripture and invites a personal response through an "Active Meditation" and a series of pertinent and powerful reflection questions. Marci Alborghetti is author of Twelve Strong Women of God: Biblical Models for Today and When Lightning Strikes Twice, both available from Twenty-Third Publications. She is a regular contributor to Guideposts.

Perfect Choice for Women's Bible Study Feb 24, 2009
Looking for a book for your women's Bible study? Look no further. "12 Strong Women of God" which focuses on Biblical women of the Old Testament, and "The Jesus Women," which focuses on the New Testament, will provide much inspiration and food for thought and discussion. Marci Alborghetti creates a compelling portrait of each of these women. Where the Biblical record is more comprehensive, such as with Ruth or Esther, she sticks very closely to that record. Where the details of these women's lives are more elusive, Alborghetti uses more imagination, but nevertheless remains faithful to what is in the Bible. Her first-person narratives place the reader directly into the story and invite the reader into a personal relationship with each of these women. Her portraits of "The Samaritan Woman," "The Canaanite Woman," and "The Adulteress" in "The Jesus Women" are particularly riveting.
Alborghetti also includes a set of probing discussion questions at the end of each woman's story. These questions allow for reflection on that particular woman and the lessons she has to teach us today.
