Friendship of Women: The Hidden Tradition of the Bible
Friendship of Women: The Hidden Tradition of the Bible | Joan Chittister
3 posts | 2 reading
Looking deeply into biblical stories of female friendships in order to extract greater truths, this compelling work explores the sacred dimension of friendship through the lenses of faith, tradition, and scripture, revealing the often overlooked voices and experiences of women in the Old and New Testaments. Recovering and reclaiming the witness and wisdom of such women as Lydia, Prisca, Phoebe, Martha, Deborah, Esther, Rachel, Ruth, Veronica, Elizabeth, Anne, and Mary Magdalene, and drawing a highly inspiring message from each of these women's lives, the book embraces friendship as it is embodied by women, between God and all of creation, and between all human beings.

Joan Chrittister,who my mother introduced me me to, (which Christine did not know when she sent me this ages ago). It‘s a book to meditate on & marvel over,as she writes of female friendship,it‘s primary importance in women‘s both everyday & spiritual lives.She explores the wisdom gleaned from 12 biblical women,along with the theme by which they each lived their lives.I cannot thank you enough Christine for this gift.
