Biblical stories of eighteen New Testament women who Jesus encouraged, empowered and loved.How could a Man who had no wife, no children, no home, no job, no money and wandered the hills of Judea with twelve men relate to women He knew, much less women in the 21st century? That’s the question that led author Dorothy Valcarcel to search for biblical women whose lives intersected with Jesus and as she discovered every woman Jesus met, faced many of the same challenges women encounter today.In The Man Who Loved Women you’ll meet Mary, trying to raise a perfect child in an imperfect world...Joanna, whose “Mr. Right” and his money could not buy her health or happiness...Martha, whose busywork distracted her from life’s most meaningful moments...and many more.

In storytelling style Dorothy Valcarcel studies the lives of 18 New Testament women who knew Jesus personally in her new release The Man Who Loved Women [WinePress Publishing, December 2006]. Broken and needy, these women were downcast in their society, but Jesus still cared about them. He still took time to meet their needs. In a parallel narrative that shows Bible days and modern times, Ms. Valcarcel defines the kind of everlasting love that every woman longs for, the kind that lifts her up, holds her tight and never lets her go.
In Chapter One, Ms. Valcarcel says, "This book is borne out of my personal desire to find a lasting love that would bring me total fulfillment. I'm talking about the type of love that is there when you go to bed at night and has not left you when you get up in the morning. A love that climbs with you to the mountaintop and does not take off when you hit a valley. A love that does not waver when the wind blows in a different direction. A love that turns heaven and earth to find you, then wraps its arms around you and never lets you go. Don't you want to find this kind of love? Doesn't everyone?"
Using personal anecdotes and story illustrations, Ms. Valcarcel brings the study down to where we live. Even the most informed reader will gain a broader understanding that Jesus can fulfill her needs as no one else can. Each chapter includes a study guide with three distinct sections designed for individual as well as group study.From the Author:
My name is Dorothy Valcárcel. You probably don't know me. I have never had my face on Time Magazine or modeled for Vogue. I am not some famous politician or wealthy socialite.
I am just a regular gal from Arizona. Someone who may be a lot like you. I am Jimmy & Ellen's daughter. Sheryl's sister. Jim's wife. And Aimee and Bethanie's proud aunt.
So far, in my lifetime, I have been someone's friend, roommate and girlfriend. I've been happy and sad, unemployed and overworked, loved and rejected. I've been a student and a teacher. A patient and a nurse. An employee and an employer.
During the last twenty years, my work with non-profit organizations around the world has taken me into ghettos, orphanages, domestic abuse shelters, and food kitchens. And I have been privileged to meet people who have the busiest hands and biggest hearts. People who say "Let me help."
As I have personally witnessed the consequences of the worst side of love, I have also come to realize that Jesus' love always wins. It may be battered and bruised - but His love will prevail.
This is what my book, The Man Who Loved Women is all about. Every chapter focuses on the way love triumphs over emptiness, rejection, grief, loneliness, and many other pesky problems that plague our lives and destroy our happiness.
So please join me, my friend, on the road to fulfillment, purpose and love. It is a road that will carry us through common territory. Who knows, our paths may have already crossed as we've struggled with the challenges that have up-ended our well-laid plans or turned our world upside down.
But here our lives finally intersect. And someone special wants to join our journey by transforming us with His love.
So, I invite you to come meet The Man Who Loved Women.
