Desperate Women of the Bible: Lessons on Passion from the GospelsAuthor: Jo KadlecekPublisher: Baker Publishing GroupCategory: Biblical Studies & ExegesisBook Format: Paperback
If the Bible can be thought of as the grand story of God, many of its main characters are passionate and even desperate men and women. Jo Kadlecek introduces us to eight biblical women driven by their passion and desperation to seek out Jesus. She explores their stories in their cultural context, then draws out the lessons they hold for contemporary readers who are willing to let an encounter with Jesus change their lives. In studying these eight characters, readers will find new insights into the central character of God's great story--Jesus--and how he can transform their desperation and their passions and bring their lives new hope.
