Who are we, and where are we going? These are no two questions of greater importance.
In Athirst for the Spirit: Biblical Wisdom for Desert Times, biblical scholar Nina Sophie Heereman approaches these questions with the eternal insight of Sacred Scripture. The seven essays included will answer what the Bible teaches about the meaning of our gender—and in particular, the Spirit-bearing mission of woman—and how we are to journey through the desert of this life.
Athirst for the Spirit reveals God’s reason for creating man and woman, as well as the Church, and how the Bible provides a path through the time of tribulation in which we have been graced to live.
Nina Sophie Heereman is associate professor and department chair of Sacred Scripture at St. Patrick’s Seminary & University in Menlo Park, California. She holds a License in Sacred Scripture from the Pontifical Biblical Institute in Rome and a Doctorate in Sacred Scripture from the École biblique et archéologique de Jérusalem. She is a regular contributor to Catholic media in her home-country Germany, where she is also active in youth evangelization and retreat ministry.
