Blessed are the Women: Naming & Reclaiming Women’s Stories from the Gospels
Available spring 2024
Blessed are the Women centers and celebrates the women of the Bible who shaped Christianity. This book invites you to heal, reorganize worship, and connect with women's experiences past and present.
Claire McKeever-Burgett combines her own personal journey with the stories of ten remarkable women from the New Testament: Elizabeth, Mary, Anna, Eve, Adama, Miriam, Susanna, Edith, Amira, and Mary Magdalene. Through a blend of storytelling, poetry, and prayer, Blessed are the Women invites readers to reimagine worship, embrace women's narratives, and foster healing within themselves and their communities. It provides liturgies for personal or communal use, discussion questions, and connections to organizations dedicated to women's empowerment and healing. With its pastoral and prophetic approach, Blessed are the Women presents a fresh perspective on faith and spirituality, inspiring readers to find resonance between their own stories and those of women who have shaped history. This empowering and transformative work ignites a call for a more inclusive and egalitarian faith that embraces the fullness of women's voices and experiences.
