On 9/8 Heather Fineisen wrote: Interesting take on women in The Bible who may or may not be scandalous to the reader. There is a trend going on with women in the Bible stories being published. This one does not depict the women in a stronger feminist light as others. The Day I Met Jesus was more to my liking, but Jesus was more of ... Bathed in Backbone
