In the tradition of empowering spiritual writers such as Ilanya Vanzant, Bishop Vashti McKenzie offers women a Christian path to personal transformation. A groundbreaking preacher who, in 2000, became the first woman to serve as bishop in the African Methodist Episcopal Church, Bishop McKenzie is renowned for her eloquence and passion in the pulpit. Now she brings her inspirational message to readers through the biblical story of the meeting at the well between Jesus and the Samaritan woman. In twelve lessons, McKenzie interweaves the Samaritan woman's experiences with contemporary personal stories, Bible quotations, life-affirming sayings, and meditational activities. Through them she shows women that if they hold onto hope and listen for their moments of epiphany, they can accomplish anything.
Bishop Vashti Murphy McKenzie is the first female bishop of the African Methodist Episcopal Church and the national chaplain for the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority. She is the author of Not Without a Struggle and Strength in the Struggle: Leadership Development for Women.
"Bishop McKenzie's 'twelve lesson' journey will take you from stagnation to the elevation of 'Living Water,' from the well of hope." —Dr. Gwendolyn Goldsby Grant
