Summary

Prepare for a life-changing encounter with Jesus, seeing him afresh through the eyes of three women who worship and adore him. Mary of Bethany prepares the way for the lord's burial when she anoints his feet and fills the air with her perfume. His mother, Mary of Nazareth, stands by her son from his first breath to his last, her loyalty unwavering. Mary Magdalene, delivered of seven demons, bravely supports her teacher through his darkest hours, then proclaims the glorious news of his resurrection. What a trio! What a Savior!

A seasoned Bible teacher and award-winning novelist, Liz Curtis Higgs combines her storytelling skills with a thorough verse-by-verse study of scripture as she explores the lives of these three Marys. Just as she did in The Women of Christmas, Liz shows us how we can deepen our walk with the lord by following in the footsteps of The Women of Easter.

The Importance of the Women of Easter

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I absolutely would. It's a fresh perspective on the story we already know so well. This sheds light on importance of the female figures in Jesus' life, and how valued you are also. It's well referenced, and even has a "Study Guide" at the end for further discussion/reflection.

What about Liz Curtis Higgs’s performance did you like?

She always sounds so genuine, like a friend you want to grab a coffee with.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, but not because I didn't like it. Because it is the Easter Story, I wanted to be in the right frame of mind, and able to concentrate when I listened.

Amazing!

I absolutely love Liz! Her love for the The Word is so evident and presenting the characters that play a part in Jesus' life as so human really helps me identify with them and get so much more out of my own reading and study.
