Eight women from eight very different backgrounds. Yet the struggles they each faced rang with eerie similarity. These courageous women from across the globe-Pakistan, India, Romania, Former Soviet Union, China, Vietnam, Nepal, Indonesia-shared similar experiences of hardship, subjugation, and persecution, all because of their faith in Christ. Yet all of these women have emerged from adversity as leaders and heroines. The eight modern-day pilgrims featured in Hearts of Fire are the hidden jewels in the church universal. They are worthy role models of faith and passion, and women of every age will gain new strength and hope for their own times of crisis and trial as they read these inspiring stories. Each story concludes with thoughtful self-reflection questions for the reader.

Drawn from over fifty-eight individual, in-depth, qualitative interviews with women of faith in Malaysia and Britain, Women of Faith and the Quest for Spiritual Authenticity is a multifaith, multicultural and cross-cultural comparative focus that explores women’s religious expressions, as derived from practising Buddhists, Hindus, Christians, Muslims, Jews, Wiccans and Druids among others. Despite social advances towards women’s emancipation and the lacerating critiques from feminist theologians across the Abrahamic religions and beyond, women’s religious experiences remain submerged beneath the weight of patriarchal religious leadership and ongoing masculinised, dogmatic interpretations. Even feminism itself has yet to move the spiritual onto their main agenda of inequity in women’s lives. This extensive, feminist research monograph challenges these exclusions to centre and amplify women’s voices in speaking powerfully of their religious experiences, interpretations and practices. This is an ecumenical and entertaining ethnography where women’s narratives and life stories ground faith as embodied, personal, painful, vibrant, diverse, illuminating and shared. This book will of interest not only to academics and students of the sociology of religion, feminist and gender studies, politics, ethnicity and Southeast Asian studies, but is equally accessible to the general reader broadly interested in faith and feminism.

"How easily we forget God is in control. How arrogant of us to think we are running anything!" ?Marilyn Meberg Many of us spend our time placing invisible chains on ourselves and those closest to us. Often without realizing what we are doing, we make our world smaller and we put God in a box. The more we insist on owning and controlling, the less room we leave for God to work in our hearts. In Amazing Freedom, renowned Women of Faith authors share insight into the freedoms we can experience if we will just let go. In the first section of the book, each devotional describes something we can find "Freedom from . . ." In the second section, you'll move on to what we're given the "Freedom To . . ." do. And finally, the devotionals explain why we have that freedom at all, in "Freedom For . . . ." Amazing Freedom is filled with stories that will encourage and rejuvenate your spirit. Embark on a new journey unencumbered by the world and experience the peace that will follow. Be encouraged. Be uplifted. Be free.
