Eight women whose roles in Jesus' life are not often highlighted in the pulpit are subjects of sixteen thought-provoking sermons. Each woman's story is discussed from two perspectives. Dr. Johnson Cook brings to her sermons very personal interpretations. She sees in he lives of these women reflections of her own struggle to answer God's call despite overwhelming prejudice. Dr. Watley shows that the faith journeys of these women offer inspiration and encouragement for all Christians seeking to follow Jesus amid the turmoil of contemporary life.
