Item Description...
This groundbreaking collection of short stories brings to life the women--daring, brave, thoughtful, and wise--who played important and exciting roles in the early days of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

Join Esther as she stands against injustice and her king to save her people, Aisha as she leads hundreds of men into terrifying battle, and Mary as she and Elizabeth dream of the new lives growing inside them. How must Sarah have felt, turning Hagar out into the desert? And how must Hagar have felt, traveling from the safety and security of Abraham's land toward an uncertain future? These stories invite us to come to know and appreciate the struggles and triumphs of these women--mothers, daughters, believers and seekers.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Unbelievabe awareness to share with other people of faith and outside "religious" circles too  Feb 8, 2009
I was surprised by the ease of reading. This is written in storytellers format and short stories are easily shared with my kids and roommates alike. I've read one story to a 2nd grader and another to a friend in her 80s. I've shared these with Christian women, woman with no "religious preference" only background in a church of sorts and a couple of guys who hadn't a clue where they were spiritually at that moment. These are preaching tales but stories of women from 3 faiths that share some common ground. I particularly liked the Adam and Eve fictional tale where Evil was originally a camel made into serpent. I won't spoil the surprises you will find in this book. Highly recommend - even to advanced elementary readers. My fifth grader (who only reads Harry Potter and fantasy/mystery novels) loves these stories. Even if she'd rather they be read aloud. Want a book club book for people who don't like to read A LOT - this is your pick. Want to reach to someone set in their ways of being Jewish or Christian or Muslim, I can't say enough but I'm from the Christian persuasion and undoubtedly seeking diversity. This is one of my favorites!
