Fierce: Women of the Bible and Their Stories of Violence, Mercy, Bravery, Wisdom, Sex, and Salvation
Women in the Bible--some of their names we know, others we've only heard, and other are tragically unnamed.
Pastor and provocateur Alice Connor introduces these women and invites us to see them not as players in a man's story--as victims or tempters--nor as morality archetypes, teaching us to be better wives and mothers, but as fierce foremothers of the faith.
These women's stories are messy, challenging, and beautiful. When we read their stories, we can see not only their particular, fearsome lives but also our own.
Hip, funny, and substantive, Fierce demands that we take a second--and a third and a fourth--look at some of the Bible's strongest women. I loved this book." -- Jana Riess, author of Flunking Sainthood Every Day and The Twible
"Alice Connor is a skillful artist who knows how to transpose old, old stories into new, new songs. Connor knows that feminism is about power. She shows how these ancient stories are filled with powerful futures." -- Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary
Alice invites us in Fierce to look deeper into the women in our bibles and deeper into our lives with God. I am thankful for the challenge." -- Lilly Lewin, author of Sacred Space and curator of freerangeworship.com
