Are you ready for a closer and deeper relationship with Christ? This is an intense and confidential Bible study designed for women. It is not easy to surrender all to God. The fruit of healing, freedom, and thriving is not always happiness. Change and healing occurs when we are completely dissatisfied with our condition of heart and soul. Surrendering all and pursuing God's agenda is the key to a relationship with Him. The devil tries to deceive us through the stages of pain and abuse. He distorts God's relationship with us so that intimacy, trust, pleasure, and desire always appear polluted by the many hurts we experience. This study will go deeper than the surface symptoms caused by hardship. If you commit your all to God, He will soothe your deepest pains through His Son, Jesus Christ. Your life will be transformed. Every woman can benefit from this study. Are you paralyzed with fear? Are you at a standstill in your relationship with Christ? Are you ready to take your relationship with God to the next level? This study will help you grow toward a more personal and intimate relationship with the God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.

We all go through different trials in our lives, but there can be victory, healing, and redemption of our past. We can move forward and be healthy, happy people, fulfilling our desires and destiny. My prayer is that the words in this book will come alive and you will see just how precious you are to our God and how you too can overcome anything that has hurt you. There is a story in Ezekiel 37 about the valley of dry bones coming to life, and new muscles, tissue, and skin growing; the people were alive again. Do you feel that sometimes you are just spiritually dead and need new life? Sometimes we just need to gain wisdom through someone else's experiences, to see what we have been missing in our own lives. I hope through my experiences you will gain knowledge that will give you revelation into becoming the person you desire to be.

Read the dramitazed version of two of the Gospel's mightiest miracles . Only here may anyone read about such: But Jesus knew no fears, as He swiftly brought forth many tears of relife from multitudes, due to their infections being instantly wiped away. Then after their medical damnation was cursed to it's roots, such was immediately sent back unto Hell from whence it came. And all those experiencing His touch received a spring of knowledge welling up within them as they became fountains of God's power; For Jesus poured out His living waters unto all who reached out to Him; Nor was He ever slow to bring such troubled souls a flood of love along with His all-embracing wisdom like the splendor of Eternal Light. But since the delights of His healing touch is infinite and humanity is not, Man cannot even begin to contain them within their minds; even as a little earthen jar cannot contain the sea. And just as a mountain of gold and pearls is more precious than a shadow of an ant, even so are the delights that come forth from restored health; For such freedom from disease is much more precious than all of the delights of luxury that have ever belonged to all of the most noble kings of our world. 'Twas a time of hope for those nine Jews and their Sameritan friend. 'Twas also a fact that Jews normally didn't associate with Samaritans, but their common affliction was more than enough to help them all to overcome any religious prejudices.

The Samaritan Woman Testifies is a book based on the concept of the woman at the well of Jacob in the Biblical history, Book of John, chapter 4. She is a woman scorned by most others but Jesus goes out of His way to minister to her needs while she attempts to get water later in the noon day, avoiding all others. Jesus made a special detour to see this woman and help her ascertain the living water of salvation and grace. It was a miraculous meeting. This project was divinely inspired and 12 courageous women came forward to testify to their own personal journey to the well where they met Jesus Christ. He said, "Who do you say that I AM?" The author, Susan J. Perry is happily retired and lives in Edgewater, Florida with her sweet husband John R. Perry. Together they have four grown children; three girls and one boy and four grandchildren so far; three boys and one girl. Their children are spread out from New York to Texas to Alabama and traveling to see them is such wonderful fun! So life is good because they share the love of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit challenging God's purpose for them as a married couple of 8 years now with so much more to do.

Postcolonial studies has recently made significant inroads into biblical studies, giving rise to numerous conference papers, articles, essays and books. 'Postcolonial Biblical Criticism' is the most in-depth and multifaceted introduction to this emerging field to date. It probes postcolonial biblical criticism from a number of different but interrelated angles in order to bring it into as sharp a focus as possible, so that its promise - and potential pitfalls - can be better appreciated. This volume carefully positions postcolonial biblical criticism in relation to other important political and theoretical currents in contemporary biblical studies: feminism; racial/ethnic studies; poststructuralism; and Marxism. Alternating between hermeneutical and exegetical reflection, the essays cumulatively isolate and evaluate the definitive features of postcolonial biblical criticism. Such a mapping of postcolonial biblical criticism as a whole has never before been undertaken in such explicit and detailed terms. The contributors include Roland Boer, Laura E. Donaldson, David Jobling, Tat-siong Benny Liew, Stephen D. Moore and Fernando F. Segovia.

Author: Benny Thettayil
Publisher: Peeters Publishers
In the context of his conversation with the Samaritan woman the Johannine Jesus says "the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and truth" (4:23). In this monograph Benny Thettayil undertakes a detailed exegetical study of the fourth evangelist's understanding of 'worship in Spirit and truth'. Part One is devoted to a detailed exegetical analysis of John 4:19-26 focusing on the relationship between Jews and Samaritans, the meaning of pneuma and aletheia as well as the question whether Jesus reveals himself as the Messiah to the Samaritan woman. In Part Two Thettayil offers an extensive study of the replacement theme in the Fourth Gospel. He studies this issue in connection with the Johannine community and with the presentation of Jesus as the fulfilment of the temple. In his final chapter Thettayil enters into the difficult field of "Johannine Replacement Theology", taking up the challenge of confronting the theological implications of the way the fourth evangelist presents judaism.
God had met all of their needs with her last things. There are similarities between the widow of Zarephath and the woman at the well.
Author: Vashti M. McKenzie
In the tradition of empowering spiritual writers such as Ilanya Vanzant, Bishop Vashti McKenzie offers women a Christian path to personal transformation. A groundbreaking preacher who, in 2000, became the first woman to serve as bishop in the African Methodist Episcopal Church, Bishop McKenzie is renowned for her eloquence and passion in the pulpit. Now she brings her inspirational message to readers through the biblical story of the meeting at the well between Jesus and the Samaritan woman. In twelve lessons, McKenzie interweaves the Samaritan woman's experiences with contemporary personal stories, Bible quotations, life-affirming sayings, and meditational activities. Through them she shows women that if they hold onto hope and listen for their moments of epiphany, they can accomplish anything.
They are the Samaritan woman at the well ( John 4 ) , the healing of the man born blind ( John 9 ) , and the raising of Lazarus ( John 11 ) .

2009 Catholic Press Association Award Winner! A decade after the untimely death of renowned Scripture scholar Father Raymond E. Brown, SS, he continues to inspire and inform scholars and preachers, students and pastoral ministers, lay and ordained. It was only days after Father Brown's death that his final book was published by Liturgical Press. That book, Christ in the Gospels of the Ordinary Sundays,completed his six-volume series on preaching the Scriptures, a series that had begun in the mid-1970s with the publication of his popular An Adult Christ at Christmas.Those six volumes are collected here in one convenient commemorative edition to mark the tenth anniversary of Brown's death. Brown's work is left largely untouched, and readers will find that his wisdom is lasting. Yet Brown, being a scholar's scholar, would recognize the need for some enhancement in a work being republished some thirty years after the first volume appeared. Appropriately, then, this edition contains introductory essays by Brown's colleagues and friends John R. Donahue, SJ, and Ronald D. Witherup, SS, as well as useful indexes and a bibliography of resources for preaching the word of God in the context of the lectionary. As Witherup notes in his preface, Brown had the rare capacity to simplify complex biblical studies in a manner that did not 'dumb down ' the material but allowed it to be understood by a wide audience. . . . He did this in a fashion that was both inspiring and educational. That very broad audience 'those who grew up with Brown, so to speak, as well as a whole new generation of readers and preachers of the word 'will find this book to be a source of inspiration and knowledge that they will turn to again and again. Raymond E.Brown, S.S., (1928 -1998) was the Auburn Distinguished Professor of Biblical Studies at Union Theological Seminary in New York City. He was author of some forty books on the Bible and past president of three of the most important biblical societies in the world. By appointment of two popes (Pal VI in 1972, John Paul II in 1996) Brown was a member of the Roman Pontifical Biblical Commission. Timemagazine called him probably the premier Catholic Scripture scholar of the U.S.

"Feasting on the Word offers pastors focused resources for Sermon preparation, written by companions on the way. With four different essays on each of the four biblical texts assigned by the Revised Common Lectionary, this series offers preachers sixteen different ways into the proclamation of God's Word on any given occasion. For each reading, preachers will find brief essays on the exegetical, theological, homiletical, and pastoral challenges of the text. The page layout is unusual. By setting the biblical passage at the top of the page and placing the essays beneath it, we mean to suggest the interdependence of these four approaches without granting priority to any one of them. Some readers may decide to focus on the Gospel passage, for instance, by reading all four essays provided for that text. Others may decide to look for connections between the Hebrew Bible, Psalm, Gospel, and Epistle texts by reading the theological essays on each one. Wherever they begin, preachers will find what they need in a single volume produced by writers from a wide variety of disciplines and religious traditions. These authors teach in colleges and seminaries. They lead congregations. They write scholarly books as well as columns for the local newspaper. They oversee denominations. In all these capacities and more, they serve God's Word, joining the preacher in the ongoing challenge of bringing that Word to life.... We have been honored to work with a multitude of gifted thinkers, writers, and editors. We present these essays as their offering-and ours-to the blessed ministry of preaching."-From the introduction by David L. Bartlett, Barbara Brown Taylor

Author: Derek Craig Jones
The story of the Woman at the Well that is found in the Gospel of John chapter four is one of the best known stories in the bible. Yet so few ever stop and think of what it took for Jesus to reach into her world and save her. The Woman at the Well is a story of redemption, of searching for the one lost sheep, of vision, and of restoration. A woman whose life was in tattered ruins was found by the Savior and in one day's time her life was forever better.

In The Well-Watered Woman, Gretchen leads us to the Well of fullness, the Word of freedom, and the Way of fruitfulness. She teaches that God's Word will satisfy us for all eternity.

It is no easy task to move from a general proficiency in English to navigating the specialized English so often used in theological resources. In addition to linguistic challenges, theology students with English as a second language encounter difficult concepts and different ways of thinking. In response, Exploring Parables in Luke aims to help such students engage with theological literature more effectively. Chapter by chapter, as students work through the theologically rich explorations of Jesus’ parables, they will grow in their proficiency of both English and theology. As a result, students will not only have a greater ability to access English language theological libraries, but also contribute to them.
