Winner of 3 Catholic Press Awards! From the bestselling author of All Saints, this new collection of devotional meditations highlights the wisdom and courage of holy women throughout history. From Mary Magdalene and the original followers of Jesus through prophets, martyrs, and mystics of our own time, Robert Ellsberg tells the stories of women who struggled to assert their full humanity and follow where God was calling - even when this challenged the prevailing options of their time. Organized around the Beatitudes, Blessed Among All Women joins such historic figures as Joan of Arc, Teresa of Avila, and Hildegard of Bingen with modern women like Dorothy Day, Anne Frank, Emily Dickinson, and Flannery O'Connor. Together they draw us into the mystery of the beatitudes - mercy, purity, poverty of spirit, and the courageous struggle for peace and justice.
From the bestselling author of All Saints comes this new collection of devotional sketches on history's greatest women. From Joan of Arc to Anne Frank to Mary Magdalene, Ellsberg offers insights into the way that women of all faiths and backgrounds have lived out the lives of sanctity, mysticism, social justice, and world reform. Blessed Among All Women features new material along with the best women saints of All Saints, for over 120 inspirational readings
