Who Are the Women of the Gospels?: A Tiber River Review


 Women of the Gospels

Women of the Gospels

The Women of the Gospels, Missionaries of God’s Love, by Mary Ann Getty-Sullivan is a great resource for small group discussions. I have always been fascinated by the women in the time of Jesus’s earthly life, and this book brings out some very interesting facts about a few of the lesser mentioned ladies in the Gospels. Published by one of my favorite companies, “The Word Among Us” in 2010 and written by Mary Ann Getty-Sullivan, this delight highlights five women and one group of women whose roles were rather small in context, but powerful spiritually. She also brings to the reader’s attention that though the Bible was primarily written by men, the women of the Bible were treated with such respect and value. Getty-Sullivan calls to mind that the Gospels should give women pause “to examine their own Christian identity and reclaim the roles inherited from the courageous and faithful women in Jesus’ life.”
