"I want to know the Christ who is presented by Ross Saunders in this book. One who will accept me where I am and for what I am, with non-judgmental love, forgiving me, and encouraging me to go out into the world and take risks in His name, to push the boundaries, think beyond the square, be outrageous if necessary, to live life to the full - abundant life. And I want that Christ to walk with me on my path of life, especially when times are challenging and difficult." - Dr Betsy Wearing, Honorary Visiting Professor in the School of Social Work, University of NSW.

When you stop to consider that all the authors of the New Testament books were men who were part of the constraints which society and religion placed on women, you can't help being amazed at the extent to which women gained prominence in early Christianity. In describing these women and their actions, Ross Saunders has used the word, 'outrageous' to emphasize just how far some of them stepped outside what was traditionally allowed them: 'That God would at times encourage such behaviour means that to some extent, God is the origin of this outrageousness. 'I want to know the Christ who is presented by Ross Saunders in this book. One who will accept me where I am and for what I am, with non-judgmental love, forgiving me, and encouraging me to go out into the world and take risks in His name, to push the boundaries, think beyond the square, be outrageous if necessary, to live life to the full abundant life. And I want that Christ to walk with me on my path of life, especially when times are challenging and difficult'.
