Encounting Women of Faith, volume 2, is a remarkable and inspiring book that introduces to us the lives of a number of women saints and points to the contemparary significance of their witness. This collection of thoughtful essays is the fruit of the collaboration of ten authors who are members of St. Catherine;s Visionm, an assocantion founded by Orthodox women, most of whem are gradustes of Orthodox theological schools.
"Encountering Women of Faith is a two-volume jewel! As a body of work that richly introduces the reader to the 'cloud of witnesses' (Heb 12:1)- that is, the saints, the holy women and men of God- the stories related through this series speak to our own context with clarity, immediacy, and vibrancy, all the while urging each one of us to 'hear the word of God and keep it' (Luke 11:28)." -Metropolitan Maximos of Pittsburgh, Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America
