When Jesus taught, these women listened. Where Jesus walked, these women gladly followed. And because Jesus loved them, these women loved and served Him with their whole hearts. In The Women of Easter: Encounter the Savior with Mary of Bethany, Mary of Nazareth, and Mary Magdalene (WaterBrook, 1/3/17)
Bible teacher and award-winning novelist Liz Curtis Higgs combines her storytelling skills with a thorough verse-by-verse study of Scripture to help readers experience Easter anew by exploring how these women’s lives were
transformed by Jesus. Mary of Bethany
prepared the way for the Lord’s burial when she anointed His feet and filled the air with her perfume.
Jesus’ mother, Mary of Nazareth
, remained by His side from His first breath to His last, her loyalty unwavering. Mary Magdalene
, delivered of seven demons, bravely supported her Teacher through His darkest hours, then proclaimed the glorious news of His resurrection.
With her conversational writing style and gift for uncovering spiritual and cultural insight, Higgs expertly engages both the mind and emotions of her readers. As each ancient scene unfolds, she explores the powerful life-altering situations that occurred in the weeks leading up to Jesus’ death and resurrection and applies them to modern life.
Readers will come away with a richer, deeper understanding of the character of God and the power, love, and mercy that were on display at the Cross.
A study guide is included in The Women of Easter
to help readers dig into Scripture and apply it to their lives. More Praise for The Women of Easter
