children, Paige Pearson and Kyle Pearson, have been generous beyond measure with their love and support. I always receive the faithful affirmation and abiding confidence of my “big sister,” Jessie Bruch Weldon, with gratitude. Carol Newsom’s critical reading of tl1e manuscript was an invaluable gift to me. Her discerning and erudite comments inspired me to re-think and amend pieces of the text in ways that bring clearer focus to the female ancestors of Jesus and the times in which they lived. I am filled with an overwhelming joy for friends who have kept me close during good times and bad. Among them are Linda Miner, Elaine Eberhart, Sister Patty Caraher, Gilbert (Budd) Friend-Jones, Bob Harris, Juana and Myron McGhee, Kay Keels, Tamar Orvell, Essie Scott, JoAnn Stone, and Barbara Thompson. These and more are cocreators with me. I ask tl1at you remember them when you turn the pages and read the her-stories that lie ahead.
