The patriarchal structure and bias of most Christian communities has made it hard for women to find inspirational models for the spiritual life. In Woman-Witness: A Feminist Lectionary and Psalter: Women of the Hebrew Scriptures: Part Two, Miriam Therese Winter, professor of Liturgy, Worship and Spirituality at Hartford Seminary, has put together 50 services for Old Testament figures such as Deborah, Ruth. Esther, Judith, the Temple Singers, and many others.

The readings, psalms, and prayers in these creative and thought-provoking liturgies put the accent on the action and presence of God in women’s lives. WomenWitness nicely supplements Winter`s previous books, WomenWord on women in the New Testament and WornenWisdom the first volume on women in the Hebrew scriptures.
