Daughters of Miriam: Women Prophets in Ancient Israel

Wilda Gafney

*** $4.99 ***

*** A recommended read for Women’s History Month

There are untold numbers of female prophets hiding in the masculine grammar and androcentric focus of the Hebrew scriptures. There are women-prophets in the communities around biblical Israel, existing for hundreds of years and even a thousand years before the Israelite and Judean prophets recorded their messages. The rabbinic and Christian fathers analyzed and found more women in the scriptures who function as prophets than the biblical authors identify. All of these female prophets have an intimate connection with the God of Israel; they express that connection by singing, dancing, drumming, speaking with and for God, waging war, performing miracles, exercising statecraft, and giving birth. Each of them is a daughter of Miriam, the mother of all women-prophets.



#4:

Life Together and Prayerbook of the Bible

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

*** $4.99 ***

The stimulus for the writing of Life Together was the closing of the preacher’s seminary at Finkenwalde. The treatise contains Bonhoeffer’s thoughts about the nature of Christian community based on the common life that he and his seminarians experienced at the seminary and in the “Brother’s House” there.



#5:

The Time Is Now: A Call to Uncommon Courage

Joan Chittister

*** $4.99 ***

“As always, Joan has put her finger and her pen to the right and needed words.” —Richard Rohr, O.F.M.
