From the Back Cover

Rediscovering the women who witnessed the crucifixion

Seven women witnessed one of the most important moments of history. Who were the extraordinary women who followed Christ to Calvary? Why did they come? Why did they stay? What did they think and feel? And what can women of the 21st century learn from them?

With Women at the Cross, Linda Lesniewski examines a powerful and significant, yet often unexplored, dimension of Christ's ministry--the devotion, loyalty, and servanthood of the women who came, who stayed, and who continue to come even today. Their inspiring stories will strengthen your faith and encourage you in your relationship with Christ.


"Linda Lesniewski has given us a book with a powerful emotional punch. It is a very moving account of a genuine reaction to Christ."--T. W. Hunt, speaker; author, The Mind of Christ

"Christ had twelve disciples and only one of them showed up for the most important event in history. Yet seven women were there through every agonizing moment of the greatest story ever told. When Linda shared her notes with me a few years ago, I knew she had a great book in her. What a book it is!"--Anne Murchison, speaker; author, Milk for Babes
