How would you describe the love of God?
Throughout the Gospel accounts, Jesus often engaged women differently than He did men. Sometimes the difference is subtle. Sometimes it is stark. Always it is profound.
Women today long to experience the same sort of life-changing love that Jesus lavished on His followers 2000 years ago. We still want to be seen and known and valued and set free.
Pierced and Embraced digs deeply into seven encounters that Jesus had with a wide variety of women in the Gospels to show how His love can be equally powerful in our lives today. It mixes attentive Scriptural engagement with contemporary research and personal narrative, making the content accessible, engaging, and practical.
Understand the unique and powerful ways in which Jesus loves the women of the gospels. Recognize our own longings for love and the (often inadequate) ways they seek to satisfy them. Discover how to live in the fullness of Jesus' love for them.
At times, it's easy to approach our faith from a performance perspective-to make it more about what we do for God, rather than what He has already done for us. Pierced and Embraced will help us focus our eyes on the true object of our faith-Jesus Christ, who loves us utterly and completely, passionately and purposefully.
Includes study/reflection questions at the end of each chapter, inviting women to dig into the passages for themselves.
