The Women of Easter tracks and expounds on the three women named Mary in the Easter story. The first is Mary of Bethany who anointed our Lord’s feet with expensive perfume. Mary, the mother of Christ as she stands by her son until he draws his last breath. And Lastly, Mary Magdalene, who was among the first to proclaim the glory of the resurrection.
The author uses various translations of scripture to assist the reader in understanding the three women, and the resurrection in a deeper way. Though the primary translation used is the NIV. The book compares and contrasts the actions and love the women had for Christ, and the author challenges the reader to do the same.
The book also includes a study guide with questions, and more suggested scriptures to assist the reader. The book is steeped in scripture and to the authors credit reads more like a devotional than a book on Christian living. This book will challenge you to take your relationship with Christ to the next level.
