Engage with women from the Gospels in a whole new light with the imaginative style of Ignatian meditation - placing yourself within the story.
This resource has been developed specifically for women seeking a powerful new tool to enter into Bible study. The material is based on events in the Gospel, starting with Elizabeth and the Annunciation, and concludes with Mary Magdalene’s encounter with the risen Jesus.
‘Walking with Gospel Women’ includes:
• 25 reflective monologues that focus on the voices and stories of women in the Gospels
• Linked group discussion material, based on Bible passages
• An introduction for the leader
• Ends each session with reflection and response
• Tried and tested material
These interactive Bible meditations spark real transformative learning through putting yourself in the Gospel story. Small group leaders, women’s ministries, and church leaders looking for creative Bible resources will not only find this book a great group resource, but will also discover an incredible meditative tool for their personal devotion.

Fiona Stratta's book aims to help us encounter God, through 'interactive Bible meditations'. Using our imagination, we enter into the lives of many of the women mentioned in the Gospels. Each chapter follows the same pattern. First, one or more suggested readings from the Gospels, and then a 'monologue'. Each monologue is an imaginative retelling of a Gospel story from a woman's perspective. So, for example, the monologue based on John's account of the woman caught in adultery begins like this: "I felt a rough hand on my shoulder, pushing me towards Jesus, causing me to stumble and fall at his feet." Details which are not in the Bible are imagined by the author - so, in this particular story the woman speaks of seeing her husband in the crowd, and of hearing her son cry out. Following each monologue is a set of questions for reflection and discussion. This book is designed for use in small groups, but I found it worked well for me as an individual, too. If you want to learn how to enter imaginatively into the Bible, this book would be a helpful and refreshing place to start.
