The Women of Christmas by Liz Curtis Higgs

What a wonderful book to begin the Christmas season.  In our busyness at this time of year it brings a peaceful reading of things past. It also takes the stories that we are familiar with and expands on them. 

It takes the lives of Elizabeth, Mary and Anna to a broader understanding. The author digs through each sentence and each word in scripture.

Each of these women's story brings us to a new level and new promise in our own lives.  Liz Curtis Higgs writes like these women are more than a story. More than words in the Bible.

It is these women involvement in the most awesome story told, that brings everything alive to us.  The book explains how important each of these women were during the birth of Jesus.  They were an important part of history.

If you want to refresh your passion for the Christmas story I recommend this book.  You will come away with a new appreciation for these women. It will reinforce that women today are just as important to God.

God used these women in a mighty way, just as He can do in us today.

"I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing group for this review."
