"Liz Curtis Higgs is one of the most amazing teachers of God’s Word that I have ever experienced. Her in-depth knowledge of the Scriptures, gifting as a communicator, and personal relationship with the Lord make her unmatched in the ability to take biblical truth and make it applicable to anybody."
—Priscilla Shirer, New York Times bestselling author of Fervent

 "Liz Curtis Higgs has an incredible way of giving us a fresher, deeper understanding of God’s Word. In The Women of Easter, she takes us right into the days surrounding the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus, where we find our contemporary concerns reflected in the faces of the women who witnessed His ministry firsthand. And we see for ourselves the love of a Savior who laid down His life so we might live free. This book is the perfect companion for Easter and beyond!"
—Jennie Allen, founder of IF:Gathering and author of Nothing to Prove

"In this beautifully tender yet scripturally deep book, Liz Curtis Higgs gives us a chance to view Easter through brand-new eyes. A fresh point of view from women who knew Jesus best and loved Him most."
—Joanna Weaver, author of Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World

"Liz Curtis Higgs is a sister of mine, perhaps the wisest and most joyful sister of them all. She knows the women of the Bible, and she loves the women of our day. Most important, she knows what it means to have a dramatic encounter with Jesus. In The Women of Easter, Liz reveals and allows us to relive the extraordinary effect Jesus had on the lives of Mary, Mary, and Mary. Through these pages you will be inspired by the insightful prose of Liz and the life-changing power of the Savior."
—Kyle Idleman, author of Not a Fan and Grace Is Greater

"The highly gifted Liz Curtis Higgs wows us again with her insightful and delightful look at the women of Easter. This book will stir a resurrection in your own heart and open your eyes to the wonder and beauty of the cross."
—Margaret Feinberg, author of Fight Back with Joy

"Liz Curtis Higgs has crafted a book that is unique and profound in its intimate look into the lives of the women who served Jesus throughout His ministry. The Women of Easter reminds us that Jesus has always used women to propel His kingdom in mighty ways. This book will challenge women everywhere to step faithfully into their calling with full abandon and worship."
—Christine Caine, founder of A21 and Propel Women

"Readers of Liz Curtis Higgs’ books will not be disappointed in this latest volume....As the story unfolds, readers meet Mary of Nazareth and learn what she might have been thinking about.  At the crucifixion readers see not only Mary, Jesus’ mother, but also Mary Magdalene and other women.  It is interesting that only the women stayed at the feet of Jesus while he was on the cross and women who went to where he lay to find the tomb empty.  When he rose on the third day, it was a woman, Mary Magdalene, which Jesus showed himself to.  After Jesus showed himself to the disciples and rose to his father, the disciples went to the upper room.  With them were Mary of Nazarene and other women.  Were Mary of Bethany and Mary Magdalene with them?  We don’t know, but there is a likelihood the women would be there. Readers will definitely enjoy this book, and the study guide at the end of the book makes it appropriate for group use. Recommended."

    Not only would I recommend this book, I purchased at least 10 copies that I passed along to friends to enrich their Easter season.

    Through this book, women are reminded how valuable they are to God. It also reminds us that we need to submit to HIS plans.

    Excellent book, easy read, and places the reader there in the midst of Jesus. Higgs takes us through our Lord's last earthly days with down to earth clarity, and from the perspective of His closest friends as well as His mother.

    Liz Curtis Higgs, brings us yet another amazing book to help us deepen our experience and understanding of Scripture. Beautifully detailed, this book is a great way to explore the Easter season. As usual, Higg brings to life stories you've heard before. I loved how she explains the customs of the times (to often I skin of the details), but now I better understand the details. Although I've read these scriptures many times, I now see it through the eyes of women who were there.

    With hymns, multiple different bible verse translations, prayer and a study guide, this book is a great Easter devotional! 5 out of 5!

    I received this book from Bloggingforbooks in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.

    In her book "The Women of Easter - Encounter the Savior with Mary of Bethany, Mary of Nazareth, and Mary Magdalene" author Liz Curtis Higgs explores three women and how their lives changed because of Jesus. They all happen to be named Mary. Each have a great story.

    This small hard cover book is eight chapters long. It begins with a thought provoking introduction "A Season of Grace" and ends with study questions, notes, and information about the author. This is a Lenten book but could be read at any time. It is a book to absorb and revisit. It stayed with me long after I finished it.

    I was hooked immediately. It took me zero time to get invested in this inspirational book. That happened on page one. I love the author's personal style of writing. It's like a conversation with me. She made the three Marys relatable and I felt what they were feeling. I was sad and then thrilled when I read about Lazarus. I understood the human side of Jesus better through them and His deity. He was God. I laughed at times and teared up just as many. I got angry and could hardly read the words at times. I knew the story about Jesus's suffering but it always hurt. It always will.

    In this book I found a different view of Easter. I read about the women that followed Jesus. This book told how He changed their lives. How they loved and served Him. I wanted to be part of that elite group. I wanted to walk with the Lord, see His miracles, and listen to His stories.

    As the words took me closer to the cross, I found myself grower stronger in my faith. Yes, Jesus did not deserve this, and yes, He did this for everyone. Even me. Tears fell from my eyes as I kept reading. I nodded my head when the Roman soldier said "this was certainly God's Son". After the tomb was opened and Jesus appeared, I rejoiced! It made me smile, really down deep in my heart, when I read Mary Magdalene was given the great honor of telling the disciples that Jesus was now alive. A woman was given such a great job.

    In 193 pages I had become friends with three woman that strengthened my faith. Their stories are remarkable and unforgettable. Jesus is the one that is the heart of thus book. He is the true meaning of Easter. He is life and hope. I wanted to read more, more, more. Liz is so good at what she does. She is a gifted author, encourager, and glorifies our Lord. Don't miss this uplifting book on three spectacular women of Easter and their Lord Jesus Christ. You will be blessed beyond measure. I rated this a 5 out of 5 stars.
