Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In this illuminating work, McKenna discusses three topics that she believes are closely linked: memory, women, and resistance. She has chosen these ideas because each is found at the heart of a story in Mark’s Gospel: that of the unnamed woman who anoints Jesus with perfumed oil. This brief tale forms the center of this book’s reflections and commentaries as McKenna looks at stories of children and women and their traditions from around the world. “Who and what we remember,” she writes, “is a revelation of who and what we are and hope to be.” Combining memory with the stories associated with women is a potent idea because traditionally women are the ones who do much of the remembering, acting as family storytellers, while their own stories are often forgotten or neglected. Thus, many of the stories recounted here comprise acts of resistance and, by their very nature of remembering, acts of political courage. An important and thought-provoking book about women, both sung and unsung, from Iran to the American Southwest and beyond. --June Sawyers

Review

“This book ― and the women celebrated in it ― cannot but stir us to courage and creativity, to compassion and the work of making the world more just and livable for all.”

Too much build up of why these women were chosen and not about their life. They were great choices but it would have been interesting to know more about how they came to make their choices and how it affected others. There was only 1 short paragraph on each woman and many paragraphs of build up.

Great summary of women of honor and Christian conviction-- She uses scripture references in detail as she shows how they impact the world around them.... Her view of the first sin as "when Cain killed Abel' was thought provoking. as this is the first place sin is mentioned in the Bible. I enjoyed and appreciated her view point.. I found the book first at our church library as recommended by the Women's group.. the author has a Catholic background but our church is Protestant.. The author reaches all Christians-- in all denominations...

The way the author weaves biblical accounts, folk tales and contemporary achievements of women is interesting and challenging. This is not a book to read casually. It won't make sense if the reader isn't willing to really think and connect the dots from the beginning to the end of each chapter. Its worth the effort, believe me!

This book is good and has many bible references that are very good. It is on our list of reading books for the United Methodist Women. We read several books each year in five different catagories. I enjoyed it and would recommend it to others, I did pass it on for others in our group to read and they enjoyed it also.

Some of this book was a hard read... whether it was because I was not interested or just lost interest while reading. Other stories were great and I got a lot out of them :)

I found the book to be wordy, difficult to hold my interest and longer than the content should be to say what was written.
