Darkness is as Light is a Christian women's devotional for persisting in hard places. Inspired by the Gothic Christian women mystics, this unapologetically womanly devotional is written for the succor and encouragement of women going through hard times, by women who have experienced God's presence in suffering. You'll recognize God in every entry by the way each woman met Him in her darkness.
This nine-week devotional is a perfect length for persisting through the fall and winter holiday season or any season of hardship. In Darkness is as Light, twenty-two women authors-Orthodox, Catholic, and saint-venerating Protestant-bear witness without pulling their punches, without tidying away their womanhood, their vulnerability, their bravery, or their womb-deep understanding of how God fills all things and redeems suffering with joy-if one can wait. This timely volume taps into the timelessness of Gothic women's faith that was richly reliant upon God and expected God to be with women in suffering. These modern Gothic devotions reach out to the untamed woman, the lost woman, the too-much woman, the woman who loves and hurts, the woman who grieves and hopes, who desires and disciplines herself to receive God. The Gothic faith shared in clear, crisp narrative reflections in these pages can reach the woman who doesn't have her life together or a quip to summarize her love; God's presence is enough of a moral to her story.
With illustrations reminiscent of the work of Gothic women mystics and poetry to begin each week of reflection, Darkness is as Light explores with beauty the hardest places where women meet God.
