Jesus Approaches: What Contemporary Women Can Learn about Healing, Freedom & Joy from the Women of the New Testament

by Elizabeth M Kelly

Vivid stories about women in Scripture--as well as women today--whose encounters with Christ and his Church have freed them to flourish in every way.

"Liz Kelly's new book will help women to recognize their particular gifts for a world that needs healing. She encourages women to offer their unreserved 'yes' to the mission God has for them, like the grain of wheat in the furrow, so that their lives will bear abundant fruit." --Bishop Andrew Cozzens, St. Paul & Minneapolis (8/30/2017)
