An alumna and author will be welcomed back to Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary for a book-signing April 4, 2019.
Noemi Vega Quiñones co-authored the book Hermanas: Deeping Our Identity and Growing Our Influence, published by with InterVarsity Press. The other authors are Natalia Kohn and Kristy Garza Robinson. A review of the book for Sojourners magazine is at sojo.net/magazine/march-2019/latina-identity-and-bible.
According to InterVarsity: “Natalia Kohn, Noemi Vega Quiñones, and Kristy Garza Robinson share their own journeys as Latinas and leaders. They find mentorship in twelve inspirational women of the Bible including Esther, Rahab, Mary, and Lydia, who navigated challenges of brokenness and suffering, being bicultural, and crossing borders. As we deepen our spiritual and ethnic identities, we grow in intimacy with God and others and become better equipped to influence others for the kingdom. The insights here will help any who seek to empower Latinas in leadership.” Purchasing information is at ivpress.com/hermanas.
Vega will sign books from 4:00-5:00 p.m. Thursday, April 4, 2019, in the Seminary Conference Room, Seminary House, part of the Fresno Pacific University main campus, 1717 S. Chestnut Ave., Fresno. The event is free, books will be available for purchase.
