I bought this to replace a copy I'd lent and not had returned. It's a book I use often to get ideas for prayer stations. Prayers can be used as they are or easily adapted to fit local situations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sisters of Sinai: How two Lady Adventurers found the hidden gospels, 27 Mar. 2009
Janet Soskice paints an incredible picture of the life of two women who are incredibly tenacious. Adventurers they certainly were. Despite setbacks and sadness in their personal lives, (both Agnes and Margaret ended up as widows) When they have a project they belive in they never falter in seeking a sucessful end to it. At a time when further education for women was not the norm Agnes and Margaret seek out those who were prepared to teach them ancient languages including Greek and Syriac. With this knowledge they are able to recognise and later translate important documents including early copies of the Gospels, which had been hidden for centuries.

Without male guidence or escourt they travel extensivly through Europe and the Middle East, learning from their mistakes and becoming popular with the Monks at St Catherine's Covent on Mount Siani. In all they make seven trips to find, rescue and spend time translating ancient manuscripts.

Janet Soskice seems to have gone to great lengths in researching this book which as well as telling the stories of the life and travels of two exraordinary ladies illustrates how the people of the time lived.
