Showing Mary

How Women Can Share Prayers, Wisdom, and the Blessings of God
  • By Renita J. Weems
Product Description
The story of a young pregnant Mary visiting her older pregnant cousin Elizabeth, told in Luke 1:39-56, is one of the most profound examples in the Bible of an empowered mentoring relationship between women.

Drawing upon the Hail Mary and The Magnificat prayers, SHOWING MARY retells this touching story, revealing how both mentor and protege use their respective gifts and energies to support each other. This relationship is then applied to modern life, emphasizing the importance of women mentoring women, nurturing each other's dreams, sharing wisdom and experiences, and building networks of mutually rewarding friendships between older and younger women.

SHOWING MARY was published in Walk Worthy Press hardcover in 2002. It was a #1 "Essence bestseller and a Featured Alternate of the Black Expressions Book Club.

The Deltas, the nation's largest black sorority, has used SHOWING MARY as part of its national mentoring campaign.

As seen by the astonishing success of The Prayer of Jabez (Multnomah, 2000), books oriented around a prayer from the Bible are striking chords in the mainstream population.

SHOWING MARY is a co-publishing venture between Walk Worthy Press and Warner Books. Founded in 1997 by Denise Stinson, Walk Worthy Press publishes quality works of fiction and nonfiction that are aimed at the African American Christian market.
