"Hermanas will reignite the passionate fires of a culture rich in heritage but marred by painful lament for how much further along we should be. . . . These authors are giving voice to Latinas whose identity and influence have been vastly ignored and often dismissed. The book is filled with colorful imagery, grace, and biblical truth and is very much worth the read."--Rev. Gricel Medina, CBE International, Spring 2019
"I highly recommend this book not just to Latinas but to all Christians. We should all be able to read the Bible from multiple perspectives, especially those from the margins. Journeying with these sisters and their reflections on the scriptures will reveal to you the beauty of embracing your identity as you follow Christ."--Karen González, Sojourners, May 2019
