Preaching About the Women in the Gospels This Season


Preaching about the Women in the Gospels this season:

I found it difficult to preach as a male about the interactions Jesus had with women in the Gospels. I missed their hesitations and their feelings of exclusion. I did not get it.

Ruth VanderZee, in her recently published book Woman Meets Jesus, gets inside the skin and culture of the women of Jesus’ day, and as a result this book is a powerful resource to a male preacher.

Quentin Schultze of Calvin College edited this book, and said, “WOMAN MEETS JESUS takes my breath away.” Ruth helps a male preacher see that these ladies are models for women (and men too) today of how to receive the welcoming grace Jesus offers.
