About Becoming Women of the Word:

In Becoming Women of the Word, Sarah Christmyer embarks on a spiritual pilgrimage through the Old Testament, with each chapter focusing on one particular woman, and in one case, on two sisters. These are ordinary women with ordinary lives. They suffered, they longed for love. They stepped into the gap when men failed them; they worked to bring beauty from the ashes of their lives. Their experiences are still relevant today, despite the miles and years that would distance them. Christmyer introduces each Biblical woman with a related story from her own life, and in doing so provides a concrete connection to their witness.
