9780975564615: Glimpses of Biblical Women and Other Poems

Glimpses of Biblical Women and Other Poems is a collection of insights and poems about women found in the scriptures. Each study takes the form of an introduction, a poem, and summarizing thoughts to consider. It is a stimulating study guide that will bring new dimensions to your Bible study group, fellowship or prayer group, in your private devotions, or even as a basis for a biblically based retreat. "In the patriarchal world of the Old and New Testament communities of faith we find a great variety of divine and human expectations for women. The poetry of Dorothy J. Mosher opens up these worlds for her readers in all their splendid diversity and humanity. By focusing primarily on women whose stories are barely glimpsed, we are invited by each poem to use our senses and intuition to read and live between the lines of these amazingly plentiful stories. One story poem leads to another. Mosher's insight and scholarship encourage her readers to open the Bible for more. Using the poetic form, this collection bears evidence of thorough exegesis and biblical study. We as readers stand to learn more about the Christian scriptures and the human worlds through which they have come." (From the Introduction by The Rev. Diane Luton Blum)
