Spiritual Lemons: Biblical Women, Irreverent Laughter, and Righteous Rage
Putting body and bones to the biblical stories, Brakeman explores the passions of biblical women, such as Sarah's laughter, Jephthah's daughter's anger, and Martha's envy. Each of the eight chapters probes what these women might have felt and encourages women to name and claim their feelings. Includes suggestions for personal prayer and meditation, and ideas for group exercises.
