In the style of her bestselling Phoebe, Paula Gooder uses her extensive biblical expertise to retell the events of the Crucifixion, Resurrection and Ascension through the eyes of nine female characters she imagines accompanying Jesus during these momentous days.

Accompanied by nine colour illustrations, each story brings to life the tension, drama and shock of the events of Holy Week, banishing any over-familiarity and helping readers enter into the Passion narrative in a deeper, more meaningful way.

Originally given as a series of addresses at Southwark Cathedral during Holy Week 2021, these nine stories are for all who long to encounter Jesus afresh through the Easter Story.

Paula Gooder, Ally Barrett

Paula Gooder is one of the UK's leading biblical scholars and is passionate about making the best of that scholarship accessible to a wide audience. She is Canon Chancellor of St Paul's Cathedral, a Reader and the author of numerous bestselling titles.

'As always, Paula Gooder makes us see the biblical text with fresh eyes and challenges us to see beyond our lazy and stereotyping reading. Each beautifully-written and illustrated reflection vividly highlights a particular woman's encounter with Jesus; each one is firmly rooted in the text, and reminds us to keep noticing, as Jesus did, the people that we might think of as marginal, but whom Jesus sees as at the very heart of the gospel.' -- Dr Jane Williams
