Kathy Coffey has called to me to look more closely at my modern world, as well as to look more deeply into those well-kept secrets tucked between the words and pages of the Gospels. I know that if I keep returning there, seeking the unseen women, that I will find a radical transformation of my life waiting for me.
- From the Foreword by Joyce Rupp
Kathy Coffey is an accomplished, award-winning author and former editor for Living the Good News. She is the winner of thirteen awards from the Catholic Press Association and a recipient of the Foley Poetry Award. Her many popular books include Hidden Women of the Gospels, God in the Moment, and Women of Mercy. The mother of four children and greatly appreciated by her many readers for bringing spirituality down to earth, Kathy lives in Denver.
Kathy Coffey, with a poet’s use of words, has given women – and all of us – a delightful look at some behind-the-scenes characters of the Gospels. In so doing she raises some key issues in spirituality, for women especially, and helps us all to confront the challenge that the gospel message presents. This is truly a gem of a book.

Can a male profit from reading this book? I have. Its insights prompt understanding and prayer. The feminine perspective is enriching.

I couldn’t stop reading it. In every hidden woman I met a part of myself.

The images pull you right into the stories – fascinating, challenging and liberating. It would be very helpful as a source for discussion and small group sharing.

When you are finished reading, you will know some of these hidden women. You will see that they are us!
