"Telling the stories of the untold is a proclamatory act. The women of the Old Testament gain new life in Japinga's imagination and give us new life in how we view and interpret the Bible as the Word of the Lord. This book is indispensable for the preacher who is committed to discovering how God acts in those persons and stories that most would choose to overlook."</p>

"<i>Preaching the Women of the Old Testament</i> is an engaging and accessible text that challenges popular readings of the Old Testament. Japinga engages characters who are often not given voice, and illuminates their struggles, joys, and journey. This is an incredible resource for both the church and the classroom."</p>
