Listen in as the editor at The Well interviews Karen Wright Marsh, author of the recently published Vintage Saints and Sinners: 25 Christians Who Transformed My Faith (IVP).

Vintage Saints is a lovely invitation to meet some new friends in faith, but also to look at our own stories of faith and to identify the people who have been for us faithful companions along the way. With permission, we published two excerpts at The Well. We chose two women whom we hadn’t met before, and who had public voices despite their gender, beginnings, and cultural contexts. As fellow women seeking to follow God’s calling in academic work and faithful witness, we hope you enjoy meeting Karen Marsh and her "old friends".

What does it mean to be a Christian woman? What are the significant experiences along the way from girlhood to womanhood? How does one know when they arrive?

 

Full of these and other questions, Dr. Amy Davis Abdallah of Nyack College did her PhD work on the rite of passage, particularly as it relates to Christian women. This work serves as the basis for The Book of Womanhood( Cascade Books, 2015) and a corresponding experience  (Woman) that she leads for senior women at Nyack.

 

In this interview, Amy talks about Woman, its content and impact on the lives of women, and the value of women helping girls and younger women along the journey of becoming healthy godly women.
