On the Valiant Woman (Translated): TRANSLATED BY M.S. OBRIEN by BedeThis classic early medieval commentary on Proverbs 31:10-31 is both a Bible study and a call to action in our everyday lives. If Christ is the Bridegroom and the Church is His Bride, what can we learn about her from the Valiant Woman, the ideal businesswoman, household manager, and wife? As part of Christ and His Church, how do we take the initiative is using our talents for other people’s good?
Born only a few generations after Englands conversion to Christianity but known as the greatest Bible scholar of his day, the Venerable Bede writes with great feeling for the interweavings of the Old and New Testament. He also knows and quotes texts from the Fathers. However, his focus is always on teaching the ordinary Christian reader.
This is the first ever English translation of De muliere forti. It is also found as the final section of In Proverbia Salomonis, Bedes commentary on the entire Book of Proverbs, which has never been translated into English. Includes footnotes, Bible citations index, and a bibliography. No DRM.

I have been reflecting on the life of a dear friend Peta from the A Nun's Life online community. Peta has been a great light to me and to our community for a long time, and we are so sad that she died, yet celebrate that she is home with God, "dwelling now in light, yet ever near. It's hard to know what to think or say or sometimes even feel when someone you love dies. With Peta, I know I miss her terribly. The kingdom is within; her heart, treasure-filled.
