Blessed Among All Women: Women Saints, Prophets, and Witnesses for Our Time

Author: Robert Ellsberg
Paperback, 6 x 9.25 inches, 301 pages.

Book Notes:
This new collection of devotional meditations highlights the wisdom and courage of holy women throughout history. From Mary Magdalene and the original followers of Jesus through prophets, martyrs, and mystics of our own time, Robert Ellsberg tells the stories of women who struggled to assert their full humanity and follow God's call - even when this challenged the prevailing options of their time.

Organized around the Beatitudes, Blessed Among All Women joins such historic figures as Joan of Arc, Teresa of Avila, and Hildegard of Bingen with modern women like Dorothy Day, Anne Frank, Emily Dickinson, and Flannery O'Connor. Together they draw us into the mystery of the beatitudes - mercy, purity, poverty of spirit, and the courageous struggle for peace and justice.
