The writing about Eve in Eden and also God's working on molding Mary and a new story for us through the birth of Jesus, God Incarnate, is so profound to me. The author manages to include so many things which are contemporary in women's lives today but this language particularly resonated with me, page 60, "And the truth is, there are those who would vilify the nakesness of our need and our attempts to meet it--who would judge us for the choices we make in caring for ourselves and declare them all wrong, not spiritual enough, too medicalized, too selfish, silly, or any other manner of things that would make it seem easier for us to put our fig leaves of shame back on and make our way into the bushes to hide our nakedness." I am purchasing two more copies--one to mail to my daughter and for a friend who has gone through a lot too. I deeply am appreciative and thankful to Colleen C. Mitchell for writing this book and sharing her wisdom, experiences and all the theology in it and for Franciscan Media for publishing it.
I appreciate the author's view of women and who we are and whose image we are made in.
"When we were Eve" is my second book written by Colleen C. Mitchell. She is such a gifted writer so in love with Our Lord & Blessed Mother, and the time spent reading is such a gift to us. I would suggest every woman read this. It will bring you closer to Our Lord & the Blessed Mother. It helps us to believe how much God loves us for who we are no matter what our circumstances are.
This is a very easy read. I could see using excerpts of for a Women's Talk or Day of Reflection.
My wife really loved this book. She has highlighted passages all throughout the book and frequently re-reads many passages.
