Each chapter starts out a diary that the woman herself could have written. Through this you start to see her in a different light. Things that might be going on in her life, including her emotional hurts. What her daily life was like before she met Jesus and after she met Jesus. What this life changing experience meant to her.
After the diary the chapter moves into sections, starting with the scripture of that story. Walk It Out, is one of the best things that I have ever read. This part is very thought provoking as you look at, for lack of better term, the political correctness at that time. How Jesus crossed the line with the religious leaders, bringing freedom and healing not just to these women but to others around them that saw their healing. Walking It Out, is challenging in that it opens up your eyes to the times and what was going on that just by reading the Bible you wouldn't really grasp.
In the back of the book is a section that has questions that are designed to take you deeper into the biblical narrative either on your own or in a group setting. They help strengthen your walk with Jesus and really make you think about what is going on in that passage. The Notes in the back of the book are more than just the normal footnotes. Some of the notes add more detail information about that part of the book.
This is one of the best books that I have read in a long time. Mary wrote the diaries and it is my opinion that her own experience with emotional hurts is what makes them seem so real. She is able to put herself in their shoes. I first started reading Mary's work when I started my own journey in healing emotional hurts and it was life changing, almost as if she was telling my story and my hurts. Frank does a great job in the first century church history and challenging the reader to reach out and investigate for themselves more about the life and times back then. I have since reading "The Day I Met Jesus" have started reading more of his work. So check The Day I Met Jesus.
