A Refreshing Read

The Women of Easter by Liz Curtis Higgs is a book about the transformation that an encounter with Jesus brings into the lives of three amazing women – Mary of Bethany, Mary of Nazareth and Mary Magdalene.

I love the way this book presents Jesus as One who runs against the current of social injustice without clamoring about it. Few people draw that distinction. Higgs presents Jesus quietly restructuring gender roles through personal and vocational example, not Jesus leading a feminist charge. This is such a refreshing book – so hope-infused and full of fresh air.

I received this book from Blogging for Books > for this review.
