MORE HIDDEN WOMEN OF THE GOSPELS WITH KATHY COFFEY AND ROBERT ELLSBERG

MORE HIDDEN WOMEN OF THE GOSPELS WITH KATHY COFFEY AND ROBERT ELLSBERG

In this companion to her popular Hidden Women of the Gospels, Kathy Coffey offers thought-provoking stories of women who appear in the Gospels and Acts of the Apostles.

How might these women experience their encounters with Jesus? As in her first book, Coffey presents women of the New Testament, in the style of “midrash,” which adds depth and context to their stories. She retells them using the first person, so we “meet” these women as individuals, even those without names, such as “the woman who called out” or “the woman who caught crumbs.”

For readers seeking to encounter these figures and their stories in a new way this book will open the door.

Kathy Coffey is the author of thirteen award-winning books and many articles. She has spoken at national conventions and many diocesan gatherings and gives retreats and workshops nationally and internationally. Kathy taught for fifteen years at the University of Colorado, Denver, and Regis Jesuit University. A mother of four and grandmother of four, she now lives in California. 

BIRTH OF A MOVEMENT, WITH OLGA SEGURA AND ROBERT ELLSBERG

BIRTH OF A MOVEMENT, WITH OLGA SEGURA AND ROBERT ELLSBERG

Birth of a Movement presents a radical call to dignity and equality for all people. It examines the founders of the Black Lives Matter movement, the church’s involvement with slavery, including the decision by Georgetown University to make amends for its past actions, and the Catholic Church’s response to the recent deaths of Trayvon Martin, George Floyd, and Breonna Taylor.

In relating the story of the Black Lives Matter movement through a Christian lens, readers—Catholic and others—will gain insights and a deeper understanding of the movement and why it can help the church, and the country, move closer to racial equality.

Olga M. Segura is a Black immigrant who arrived from the Dominican Republic in the early 1990s. A graduate of Fordham University she is currently a freelance writer and opinion editor at the National Catholic Reporter. Previously she was an associate editor at America Media, where she wrote articles on race and culture. Her writing has appeared in The GuardianSojournersZORAThe Revealer, Shondaland, Latino Rebels, and Refinery29.
