Open the pages of Do What You Have the POWER to Do and you will meet, face to face and heart to heart, six New Testament women. You may have heard their stories before: the woman who anointed Jesus, the bent-over woman in the synagogue, the insistent Canaanite woman, the woman with the hemorrhage, the woman found in adultery, and the Samaritan woman at the well. After completing this study, you will feel as if you know them. Their empowering stories will become yours. ""Do What You Have the POWER to Do is an excellent Bible study of six New Testament women and their experience with Jesus. With unusual sensitivity, Helen Pearson weaves biblical scholarship, social concern, and the reflective heart into a powerful understanding of what these women offer spiritual pilgrims today. This will be a transforming book for men and women."" --Luther E.
