From the Author:

     It was a joy creating this study for the women of our parish.  They had a deep desire to be fed by God's Word and to grow in the knowledge and enthusiasm for scripture that they observed in their friends and neighbors who went to other churches.  Why, they wondered, can't we do that in our own church?  Why, indeed. 
   That's how SISTERS IN SCRIPTURE was born.  Creating the study was gratifying but watching it take root in the hearts and lives of the women who used it, was tenfold the joy.  It is my sincere hope and prayer that you, too, will experience that enthusiasm and growth.  You will discover some amazing women--both in the pages of the Bible and also alongside you when you gather.  Their stories will blend with your own and all become a part of God's working in our lives.  Who knows?  You may even find yourself creating a Midrash or two!  To find out more, you will just have to read the book :)
     After a few years of use in the parish, Paulist Press published the book for national distribution so that other parishes could have the same experience.  The nature of scripture studies, especially ones that light a fire, is that one leads to the desire for another.  Thus, other studies were created to follow--NEVER ON SUNDAY, ELDERS OF THE BIBLE and others in the works.  These were self published and made available through Amazon as the growing desire for subsequent studies could not be kept up with by traditional publication.
    Blessings on your journey,
    Kathleen

From the Inside Flap:

     Originally designed and used in a parish, SISTERS IN SCRIPTURE has also been successfully used in a home setting.  It has been a tool for women who have already been coming together for a long time and it has been the occasion for women from various places to come together for the first time.  Some groups have been small enough to all discuss together; other gatherings have split into small groups for discussion. 
     Each chapter begins with Background information and a Prayer to guide the reader in the reading of scripture.   Participants then respond to their reading through the Reflection Questions.  Sharing on the questions occurs in the small group and is the heart of this study.  The role of the facilitator is important in assuring the comfort of the participants by following the guidelines for sharing.  Special pages are added for the facilitator in taking on this role.  After small group sharing, A Closer Look at the Text, provides more in-depth information on the biblical text.  It is suggested that the group read through this together, a paragraph at a time.  Additional learning resources are available through the author's website.
     Although the request for this study came from Catholic women, it has consistently been attended by women from other Christian denominations as well.  With mutual respect and interest, the ecumenical dimension enriches the discussion and can lead to the building of bridges among women from different traditions.
