An acclaimed storyteller turns to the overlooked and often unnamed people whose stories in the Hebrew and Christian scriptures reveal the depths of God's love, especially for the poor. The Gospel of Matthew recounts the feeding of the crowd of five thousand, "not counting women and children." McKenna muses that there could have been as many as five or six women and children for every man - an enormous number to go uncounted! Who were they? And what of the leftovers - who gathered them? When ordinary people studying the Bible begin to discuss questions such as these, the results can be stunning.
