This book was recommended to me by one of the women in my weekly devotional group She also commented that Liz Curtis Higgs was doing a daily Lenten focus of the book on her facebook page Well that had me hooked I The premise for the book intrigued me a book about three Biblical women named Mary What struck me was Higgs similarity in writing to Max Lucado s style down to earth plain speaking thoughtsI wanted to like this book Wanted it to be something that would help me look at Easter in a fresh new way Unfortunately I could not get past the first chapter for several reasonsWhat immediately struck me was the amount of end notes in each chapter Chapter one had over forty If Convaincre en moins de 2 minutes you have just a few sources of reference I can appreciate an end note but whenou are over ten it s annoying for a reader to have to continually flip to the end of the chapter to find out who is actually the source of a particular idea After two dozen notations I was beginning to feel like Higgs was just compiling a reference on other people s works Sentences would have partial phrases uoted why not just assimilate their points into her own wordsAnother annoyance was the fact that she would sometimes just cite a phrase within a verse not the entire verse And instead of having an in text reference it would be in the end notes I think it s imperative that Scripture be immediately identified as such not up to the reader to go dig at the end of the chapter to see the referenceThirdly the author uoted translations than I have ever seen in one book Copyright page says most are from NIV but in the first few pages readers are hit with several others I ve been a Christian for over 30 ears and some of the abbreviated versions I had
never heard of And I could not find anywhere in the book where there was aheard of And I could not find anywhere in the book where there was a of what the abbreviations stand for Yes one could look them up but that seems like an unnecessary burdenAnd finally once verses were uoted from The Message and The Voice I knew the book was not for me Those may be fine for personal reading but it made me cringe to see them included as the basis for her pointsI guess *If A Reader Can Get *a reader can get those things
may be an book But when a book is largely a collection of a variety of ideas I d prefer to just read the individual works in their entiretyDisclaimer I received a free copy of The Women of Easter from Blogging for Books for the purpose of review No other compensation was received I knew this would be good its Liz Curtis Higgs and she paints pictures with words but wow this one really spoke to my heart Through the eyes of the women around Jesus before during and after the crucifixion I gained a new perspective of this amazing story I relate to the gift God gives to us better now I understand better why He chose who He did to be where He wanted them when He did and I perceive the disciples differently I m empathetic I love this book I ll read it again before Easter and probably again after that It brings scripture to life and directs back to scripture which allows for introspection time with the Holy Spirit and transformation Along the journey Liz brings her light joy and humor Highly RecommendedI received this book from Blogging for Books for this review I loved this study I read it the two weeks leading up to Easter along with my own notebook for notes Though I m very familiar with these three individuals and the stories involved I loved tha.
