The Women of Christmas

This is a wonderful book to help us remember the reason for the season.

As she did with the Bad Girls of the Bible series, Liz Curtis Higgs invites us to take a closer look at the women of Jesus's birth.  Elizabeth is the aunt who experiences a miracle baby herself.  Mary is the mother of her savior.  Anna is the prophetess who serves daily at the temple awaiting the Messiah.  Higgs weaves the Biblical story with her reflections which causes the reader to ponder the Christmas story.

We all need to take the time to reflect during the holiday season.  This book helps us to reflect and to remember the true meaning of Christmas.

I received this book for free from Blogging for Books for this review.  Read the first chapter here.
