Disappointment, then shame, then numbness. She didn’t care anymore what others thought. One day she was startled by a Jewish man who spoke with her, revealed the secrets of her heart, and awakened hope within.
“The Thirsty Woman – Part 1” is Chapter 4 of our new book, The Women Jesus Loved. You will read of a woman who had endured much suffering in her life, and the suffering had hardened her to what was proper and pure. Yet a thirst continued inside that was awakened by one who claimed to have living water.
I love how this book is written! Time and attention to historical and cultural details creates rich stories of the Bible stories we know so well. Each chapter gives you a chance to explore more deeply what God reveals to us through the questions and reflections. Williams identifies with the women and his words are written with compassion and thoughtfulness as though he walked in their shoes.
