In her follow-up to Meet Bathsheba, Rosanne Gartner captures the emotions and thoughts of biblical women in a series of first-person testimonies, written from the vantage point of women of the Old and New Testaments. Each one tells her own story in a way that allows you to become intimately familiar with her soul, her circumstances, and her responses to God. Gartner conducted thorough research in order to incorporate the ancient culture into the monologues, which are perfect for women's programs and discussion groups, as well as for dramatic presentations and personal devotions.
The author's contemporary narrative style and colorful imagery make this book a source of new insights for people who have never learned about biblical women, and a refreshing look at some women who are sometimes overlooked. Featured women include Esther, the witch of Endor, Pilate's wife, and Salome.
