So many of us suffer from an intense spiritual inferiority complex. We are insecure about God's love for us. We don't understand our true worth in his eyes. We struggle with guilt over mistakes we've made. We are ashamed of our own lack of devotion or fervor. We want Jesus to light the flame of love in our hearts, to feel as we did when we first received his salvation.
On the other hand, following Jesus has become stale and familiar to countless Christians today. The flame of first love has waned and our zeal for the Lord has cooled. We need to be inspired and challenged to utterly abandon our lives to Jesus anew.
With a deep sense of awe and a fierce intimacy, this unique book explores five women in the Gospels whose encounters with Jesus revolutionized their lives. Through their imagined diaries, readers get a glimpse of the inner thoughts of the Samaritan woman, the woman caught in adultery, the prostitute, the woman with an issue of blood, and Mary of Bethany. Readers meet these women in their most desperate moments and feel the captivating love and forgiveness of their Savior, revealing how Jesus intersects their lives.
