Book: she: robed and wordless
Author: Lou Ella Hickman
a collection of dramatic monologues to some of the famous, infamous, and the invisible women of the Bible. Some of these women do speak in the Scriptures while some do not. What would they say if given the chance to speak today? What story would they share about the men in their lives as well as their position in life and their place in society? Whether you are a believer or not, I invite you to discover someone you may already know or would like to meet.
