Abstract:

"Join author Debbie Blue as she embarks on the unorthodox, subversive paths of Hagar, Esther, and Mary and envisions more hopeful possibilities for faith, human connection, and love in our divided, violent world"--

Blue looks closely at Hagar (mother of Islam), Esther (Jewish heroine), and Mary (Christian matriarch), and finds in them unexpected and inviting new ways of navigating faith and life. Readers will be led to envision more expansive and hopeful possibilities for faith, human connection, and love in our divided, violent world. -- adapted from back cover
