Katerina Whitley’s first book of biblical monologues, Speaking for Ourselves, has been received with enthusiastic praise. Now, in Seeing for Ourselves, Whitley gives powerful voice to the New Testament women who met Jesus both before and after the resurrection.
Included in this collection are: the woman at the well; the adulterous woman who was nearly stoned to death; Cleopas’s wife, whom Jesus may have met on the road to Emmaus; the woman who touched Jesus’ cloak in order to be healed; Mary and Martha; Phoebe; Prisca; Pilate’s wife; the bride at the wedding of Cana, and others.
