Women Who Met Jesus

In her book, The Women Who Met Jesus, Dorothy Valcárcel compares her life struggles, and the struggles of those around her, with struggles she believes women who met Jesus struggled with. Through these encounters with Christ, the author sets out to show how just as Jesus met these women’s needs long ago, he continues to meet our needs today.

Before beginning, the author states the women in her book didn’t get to the point of transformation by reading self-help books or by following the latest advice fad. She says each woman began the healing process when she met Jesus.

While I didn’t always see the connection the author tried to make, or agree with the label she placed on each woman to identify their need, I understand her point that Jesus meets each of us where we are in the middle of our need and guides us toward the path he has for us.

Each chapter ends with several sets of questions for self-reflection.

Have you read this book? If so, what was your impression of it?

I wish you well.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell for a fair and honest review, which is exactly what I gave.
