When Wisdom Speaks, takes us on a journey deep into the heart and mystery of Biblical spirituality. Lyn Holley Doucet and Robin Hebert-- spiritual directors and authors of the celebrated When Women Pray-- lead us along a path with an extraordinary group of women who gave wisdom a voice in their own time and day. The use of lectio divina and an added reflection guide helps draw us even deeper into the Biblical path.
Female voices of the Bible have been silenced throughout much of history. What would it be like to get to know the women of the Bible as real, living figures whose lives can challenge our own? What can we learn from their faith journeys? What would it be like to pray alongside them? Two lively spiritual directors take us into the world of the women of the Bible. Provoked by the desperation of the Canaanite woman, empowered by Mary's fiat, affirmed by the loyalty of Mary Magdalene and challenged by Ruth's fidelity, Doucet and Hebert enter into a new sisterhood with these active and contemplative holy women who emerge out of history. All of the stories link these holy women from the past with contemporary women, all of them longing after God's own heart.
