Glimpses of Biblical Women and Other Poems is a collection of insights and poems about
women found in the scriptures. Each study takes the form of an introduction, a poem, and
summarizing thoughts to consider. It is a stimulating study guide that will bring new
dimensions to your Bible study group, fellowship or prayer group, in your private devotions,
or even as a basis for a biblically based retreat.

“In the patriarchal world of the Old and New Testament communities of faith we find a great
variety of divine and human expectations for women. The poetry of Dorothy J. Mosher opens
up these worlds for her readers in all their splendid diversity and humanity. By focusing
primarily on women whose stories are barely glimpsed, we are invited by each poem to use
our senses and intuition to read and live between the lines of these amazingly plentiful stories.
One story poem leads to another. Mosher’s insight and scholarship encourage her readers to
open the Bible for more. Using the poetic form, this collection bears evidence of thorough
exegesis and biblical study. We as readers stand to learn more about the Christian scriptures
and the human worlds through which they have come.”
