Seeing for Ourselves Katerina Katsarka Whitley read online review & book description:

Katerina Whitley’s first book of biblical monologues, Speaking for Ourselves, was received with enthusiastic praise. Now she is back with another provocative collection of stories. In Seeing for Ourselves: Biblical Women Who Met Jesus, Whitley gives powerful voice to the New Testament women who met Jesus both before and after the Resurrection. The women who speak in this collection include some we meet only in passing in the Bible. Among the women who tell their stories: The woman at the well; The adulterous woman who was nearly stoned to death; Cleopas’ wife whom Jesus may have met on the road to Emmaus; The woman who touched Jesus’ cloak in order to be healed; Mary and Martha; Phoebe; Prisca; Pilate’s wife; The bride at the wedding of Cana. As in her first volume, the book includes references to the biblical passages along with study questions, making this an excellent book for group study. Praise for Speaking for Ourselves: "A collection of dramatic monologues that tell the stories of many of the women whom we know only as mothers, daughters or wives. Part biblical interpretation and part icon, the book celebrates their heartaches and joys in a way that is intimate and moving." –Episcopal Life Katerina Whitley’s first book of biblical monologues, Speaking for Ourselves, was received with enthusiastic praise.
