Judson Press Book Relates Women of the Bible to Today’s Young Women
VALLEY FORGE, PA (ABNS 4/1/15)—Judson Press announces the nationwide release of the new Christian living book, Sisters of Scripture: Mentors in Womanhood by Billie Montgomery/Cook.
In the spirit of her best-selling book, The Real Deal: A Spiritual Guide for Black Teen Girls, author Billie Montgomery/Cook ushers young women into a warm and welcoming relationship with the women of the Bible. Through the biblical stories of women from Eve to Lydia, young women today will discover reflections of their own struggles with relationships, trust, and self-respect. And as they read, they will find hope, love, and faith to thrive. Who could be better mentors in navigating life with courage, grace, and a faithful portion of trust in God?
“This book is a superb resource not only for adolescent girls and young adult women, but also for women’s groups and older women who are engaged in mentoring relations with teens and young adults. Ms. Montgomery/Cook writes these chapters not only with spiritual insight and the distilled wisdom of her own life experience, but with the passion to serve as mother-figure, big sister, friend, and spiritual guide to a generation of young ladies who are seeking their way in an increasingly complex world.”—Rev. Dr. James C. Perkins, Senior Pastor, Greater Christ Baptist Church, Detroit, Michigan and First Vice President, Progressive National Baptist Convention, Inc.
In Sisters of Scripture you will find the stories of:
• Sarah and Hagar
• Leah and Rachel
• Deborah and Jael
• And more!
Inspiring, enlightening, and empowering, this book will encourage young women to seek and foster a connection between their lives and the Word of God.
