What would it be like to meet Jesus face to face? Stories of encounters between Jesus and various women have been handed down through the centuries and give us a glimpse of how He responded to women with needs and desires similar to ours. Because Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever, we can be confident He treats women today like He did when He walked the earth. We, too, can trust that He is powerful, good, and kind. The purpose of this book is to encourage the reader by showing that Jesus understands her needs and desires and continues to unconditionally love, value, forgive, rescue, heal, comfort, provide for, restore, satisfy and give life-now and eternally. Portrait of a Woman and Jesus captures a verbal and visual snapshot of thirteen face-to-face encounters of a woman and Jesus. Each portrait by artist Wilson Ong reflects how the scene may have unfolded as a woman interacted with Jesus.
Barbara Quillen Egbert credits her life experiences-in the roles of wife, mother, published author, educator, camp director, and ministry leader-as the foundation of her interest in and understanding of women's identity issues as they relate to God's original intent for their lives. Due to the insights gained through her spiritual journey, the author can confidently state that a woman's identity issues are primarily addressed through an intimate relationship with Jesus. Her greatest joy is when others experience the love, restoration, and peace found only in Him. Wilson Jay Ong grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and received a BFA from Brigham Young University and afterward attended the Art Students' League. In addition to being a professional artist and illustrator since 1983, Wilson has taught art, presented workshops, and exhibited his work nationally.
