Fresh Perspectives Give Freedom
Updated: Sep 11
How can biblical fiction give you fresh perspectives on the Bible and women? Here are three ways of looking at Forgotten Followers, from Broken to Bold Book 1.
1. Like a Parable Forgotten Followers is #biblicalfiction that is #empoweringwomen who feel forgotten and broken by years of submissiveness, abuse, racism and inequality. How can they heal and find hope? Love and sisterhood give them fresh perspectives, the freedom to be who they really are and the power to speak and act boldly. Like a parable, this novel speaks straight to the heart.
2. Like the Gospels
Forgotten Followers is based on a synopsis of the four Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. It is like the Gospels in the Bible, only the women are the main characters. As they follow Jesus, the reader sees him in a fresh light and experiences how he respects and values the women, teaches them as disciples, and equips and empowers them to go out as apostles.
Forgotten Followers puts you in the place of women who follow Jesus and allows you to experience Jesus's love for you- to feel chosen, affirmed, worthy, and encouraged to speak and act boldly. The extensive research and refreshing perspectives make the story life-giving.
