WOMEN IN THE BIBLE: Vol 1: Old Testament
This book offers a reflection on the female figures contained in the books of the Scriptures. Many of them are important and they play a very critical role in the history of salvation.
Some are heroines that people of Israel still remember as liberators of their nation. Others are women who suffer, because they are frustrated in their desire to be mothers and thus be part of the journey of the chosen people towards the future messianic glory.
Others still are victims of male arrogance and even humiliated in their femininity. Nevertheless, even within these limits, the women of the Bible show attractive personalities, and through our reflections, each of them has a lesson to offer us. This book is suitable for everyone.

WRITTEN FOR OUR INSTRUCTION: Theological & Spiritual Riches in Romans
Thomas Stegman, SJ
Today, Christians read Paul's Letter to the Romans as divinely inspired, as part of the canon of the New Testament. Although penned nearly two thousand years ago to a specific group of believers, this letter was also written for our instruction; hence the title.
As Sacred Scripture-along with the other writings attributed to the apostle-Romans is a living word that speaks with as much relevance today as when it was first written. It contains much food for thought, for theological and spiritual reflection. Written for Our Instruction gives a flavor of these theological and spiritual riches.

ALWAYS WITH US: What Jesus Really Said about the Poor
Liz Theoharis examines both the biblical text and the lived reality of the poor to show how that passage is taken out of context, distorted, and politicized to justify theories about the inevitability of inequality.
She reinterprets "the poor you will always have with you" to show that it is actually one of the strongest biblical mandates to end poverty.
She documents stories of poor people themselves organizing to improve their lot and illuminates the implications for the church. Poverty is not inevitable, Theoharis argues. It is a systemic sin, and all Christians have a responsibility to partner with the poor to end poverty once and for all.
