ENUMCLAW, Wash., Feb. 8 /Christian Newswire/ -- In storytelling style Dorothy Valcárcel studies the lives of 18 New Testament women who knew Jesus personally in her new release 'The Man Who Loved Women' [WinePress Publishing, December 2006]. Broken and needy, these women were downcast in their society, but Jesus still cared about them. He still took time to meet their needs. In a parallel narrative that shows Bible days and modern times, Mrs. Valcárcel defines the kind of everlasting love that every woman longs for, the kind that lifts her up, holds her tight, and never lets her go.
In Chapter One, Mrs. Valcárcel says, 'This book is borne out of my personal desire to find a lasting love, a love that would bring me total fulfillment. I’m talking about the type of love that is there when you go to bed at night and has not left when you get up in the morning. A love that climbs with you to the mountaintop and does not take off when you hit a valley. A love that turns heaven and earth to find you, then wraps its arms around you and never lets you go. Don’t you want to find this kind of love? Doesn’t everyone?'
Using personal anecdotes and story illustrations, Valcárcel brings the study down to where we live. Even the most informed reader will gain a broader understanding that Jesus can fulfill her needs as no one else can. Each chapter includes a study guide with three distinct sections: Exploration, Inspiration, and Affirmation. It is designed for individuals as well as group study.
Author Dorothy Valcárcel’s experience as a registered nurse and 25 year career working with charitable organizations worldwide has taken her into ghettos, orphanages, domestic-abuse shelters, and food kitchens. In these places Dorothy learned that no matter how hopeless a situation appears, in the end Jesus’ love will prevail.
A widely experienced speaker and leader, Mrs. Valcárcel has addressed national conventions and led nationwide fund raising campaigns. She has spoken at UCLA Extension classes and the University of California Irvine. She has raised funds forTeen Challenge in Southern California, Metro Ministries in New York City, Shepherd’s Gate, World Bible Society, and Children’s Hunger Fund as well as been a leader for women’s Bible studies and prayer groups.
