Stand Up!: Fearless Women in the Gospel of Mark by Johannes Eckert, OSB
The women in the Gospel of Mark were a real provocation to their fellow human beings: they spoke confidently, corrected their elders, and trusted and believed unconditionally. And yet: their names are not known. This moves Abbot Johannes Eckert to a biblical search for clues about these women. Abbot Johannes Eckert does not shy away from the hot button issues such as church tax, celibacy, and status of the women. Here is an unconventional look at six nameless women of the Bible and their stirring message for today.
