A trailblazer herself, Helen LaKelly Hunt gathers the stories of a mighty cloud of female witnesses from early biblical heroines to the present day. In brief meditations, Sister Wisdom offers a short biographical profile, as well as an essential insight or lesson to inspire readers on their path of faith and fortitude in facing the obstacles in their own lives.

Among the more than seventy women profiled are Catholic saints Teresa of Avila and Hildegard of Bingen, Puritan preacher Anne Hutchinson, abolitionist Sojourner Truth, women’s rights leader Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Catholic Worker co-founder Dorothy Day, voting and civil rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer, death penalty opponent Sister Helen Prejean, and writer Anne Lamott—visionary and courageous women whose faith empowered their witness in the world.

Helen LeKally Hunt, PhD has been inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame for her work in women’s philanthropy. She has a doctorate from Union Theological Seminary. With her husband, Harville Hendrix, she helped pioneer Imago Relationship Therapy. Hunt is author of And the Spirit Moved Them: The Lost Radical History of America’s First Feminists (Feminist Press) and Faith and Feminism: A Holy Alliance (Atria Books).
