The Women of Easter Review


About the Book

This Season of Grace,
Deepen Your Faith in God
Who So Loved the World
that He Gave Us His Son.

You re about to meet three women named Mary, each of whom has a life-changing encounter with Jesus. 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, remains by His side 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!

Your mind and emotions will be engaged and your faith strengthened as each scene unfolds, preparing your heart for a richer, deeper Easter experience. Liz Curtis Higgs, a seasoned Bible teacher and award-winning novelist, combines her storytelling skills with a thorough verse-by-verse study of Scripture as together you explore the remarkable lives of The Women of Easter.
Liz Curtis Higgs is one of the most amazing teachers of God s Word that I have ever experienced. Her in-depth knowledge of the Scriptures, gifting as a communicator, and personal relationship with the Lord make her unmatched in the ability to take biblical truth and make it applicable to anybody.

My Thoughts

Liz Curtis Higgs does it every time. I love her books! This book is fantastic. Verse by verse, Higgs breaks down the stories in the Bible starting with Mary of Bethany. My favorite part about how this book is set up is how detailed and thought provoking it is. I have read these passages in scripture numerous times. Then Liz starts breaking it down and talking about what life was really like and the culture and the dress etc. She doesn't add to the Bible and she doesn't take away. She simply states the verse and goes, okay now do you see what really just happened here? 
So good. Five stars.
