The author writes: "When I first saw Louis Glanzman's paintings of twelve women in the gospels whose names are so familiar, something happened inside me ... The faces rose from the prints and spoke to me. After a lifetime of knowing all about these women I felt, at last, that I had actually met them. Indeed I had. They were people I already knew: homemakers, sex workers, child runaways, crones, teachers, mothers, senior citizens ... all of them knew Jesus. All of them were archetypes who reflected the journeys, struggles, joys and dreams of women today. I knew at once: I had to do this book.

"The writing of Soul Sisters became as much a spiritual experience as a work of poetry. As I spent time with each woman, I knew a deepening understanding of who she was and what she had experienced. Entering into her story of two thousand years ago, I tried to capture it in poetry and in so doing realized that I was also writing the stories of women I know today. The journey and its stories belong to us all."
