My Jesus, Savior of the World and God Most High, thank you for desiring to dwell in me. Thank you for having made me to receive you, to cradle your presence within me, to bear your life out into a world that needs you desperately.
-from Who Does He Say You Are?
In Who Does He Say You Are?, Catholic missionary and speaker Colleen Mitchell captures the confessions of twelve more women from the Gospels, and shows how their stories answer this crucial question of identity: “Who does he say you are?” Holding up Mary as the ultimate example of intimate, transforming union, Mitchell weaves together moving anecdotes of her own search for identity as a Catholic woman along with twelve accounts of women in Scripture that are at once fresh yet familiar. In so doing, Mitchell connects in a compelling and very personal way with the Scriptures, inspiring readers to “take up and read” in order to discover the answer to this all-important question for themselves.
Questions at the end of each chapter can easily be adapted for group study, or used for private journaling or quiet reflection.
