Liz Curtis Higgs does a great job of delving into Scripture and making the women of Easter come alive. The Women of Easter: Mary of Bethany, Mary of Nazareth and Mary Magdalene are the women described for the reader. As the author goes through the events of Holy Week, the crucifixion and the resurrection, you get a glimpse into the lives of these women as well as how Jesus bridged the gap between his female followers and his male disciples.
As the author reveals the truth found in Scripture new insights are gained. There is a study guide in the back of the book which would aid in studying the book in a small group setting. This would be a wonderful study to do during Lent leading up to Easter.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
