Images of Faith: Spirituality of Women in the Old Testament

Copertina anteriore
Orbis Books, 1994 - 225 pagine
Presents a re-reading of the stories of Old Testament women, highlighting their spirituality and exploring their experiences in the light of Third-World women today. Part One discusses the stories of eight Old Testament women. The meditations on these images of faith draw attention to the all-too-similar experiences of crisis and abandonment, oppression and injustice, poverty and ignorance, prejudice and isolation, which form the disturbing and poignant links between these Old Testament women and their sisters today. Part Two is devoted to prayers by six other women of the Old Testament which invite the reader to join in and to see through the eyes of these women who, though of a world long ago and far away, still speak for and to the reader today.
