From Library Journal
Winter, a well-known liturgical scholar and composer of verbal and musical liturgical texts, takes the women of the New Testament and creates liturgical rituals to celebrate womanhood. Each text is preceded by scriptural references, a biographical sketch of the New Testament woman who inspired the text, and a contextual background, as well as songs, prayers, reflections, and benedictions. One becomes aware of how much the experience of women in Christian scripture has been ignored in later Christian tradition and how much androcentric religion has excluded women's perspectives. Highly recommended for seminary and public libraries.
