Book Review – Hermanas: Deepening Our Identity and Growing Our Influence

Book Review – Hermanas: Deepening Our Identity and Growing Our Influence

Hermanas! Sisters! “Hermanas: Deepening Our Identity and Growing Our Influence”, written by three Latina women (Natalia Kohn Rivera, Noemi Vega Quinones, and Kristy Garza Robinson) bring vulnerability, insight and influence to specifically women (Latina) readers to learn from their stories about identity and influence in leadership and where God’s calls them.

Filled with thoughtful storytelling of the struggles, pain and barriers of Latino/a interwoven into the lives of 12 major biblical women, their stories were relatable and each author points us to God using every experience to grow our faith and trust in Him.

It challenges our theology, in the best way, from a Latina’s perspective. The authors draw us to deeper our understanding and identity in Christ using their voices…bringing hope!

I can relate to the stories the three authors shared from identity to family expectations, and how they draw on the biblical women they are writing about, bringing new and rich perspective that left me laughing, crying and cheering.

Each chapter has questions for the readers, and I believe this book would be a great devotional and reflection on the biblical women, the authors content and engaging in our own stories.

I recommend this book to anyone who want to read and learn for Latina voices. This book and reading from these Latina Women was a gift and offers a valuable perspective.
