Sister Martha Driscoll has wonderfully composed a narrative retelling of selected gospel stories that invite the reader to listen intuitively to the words of Scripture. Each chapter focuses on a single character present in the story - usually a minor one and always a woman - relating the familiar story from her perspective. A written reflection and prayer are provided after each story.
Women who direct retreats will find this beautifully pastoral book especially useful, as will individuals making private retreats.
