Publisher's Summary

Celebrated for their courage, vision, hospitality, and spiritual giftedness, it's no wonder women were so important to God's plan revealed in the Old and New Testaments. It wasn't their natural qualities that made these women extraordinary but the power of the one true God whom they worshipped and served.

In Twelve Extraordinary Women, you'll learn more than fascinating information about these women, you'll discover - perhaps for the first time-the unmistakable chronology of God's redemptive work in history through their lives. These women were not ancillary to His plan, they were at the very heart of it.

    "A must read"

    This book must land in your eyes if not on your book shelf. This is a great reference book about how, why and most important who is in the Bible. I would suggest this book to anyone who reads this!

    "Informative"
    Would you listen to Twelve Extraordinary Women again? Why?

    Sure, to brush up on what I learned from it again.


    What other book might you compare Twelve Extraordinary Women to and why?

    There are other books on women in the bible and most of them didn't really stick out to me. So I can't say its just like the others but there are quite a few books on women of the bible.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I won't say a scene since the book covers many people, but the book is great at going into each characters story and still focusing on the main woman even when other people in their lives are mentioned.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but since it was too long I had to break it up when I had time to listen to it.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved how descriptive this book was. You will get a full understanding of these women's stories in a very in depth look on their lives and the people around them.

    I love reading Christian books, mostly by Reformed authors. I'm always looking for accurate biographies and Church history.

    Story
    "MacArthur Pleases Again!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Twelve Extraordinary Women to be better than the print version?

    I think both the audio book and the print are equally good, it depends whether you're a reader or prefer to listen. I listen to audio books at night when I go to bed, but, it's definitely worth a read!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I really enjoyed the depth that MacArthur went into about the women of the Bible. When I read the Bible, I normally don't sit and meditate on each passage as well as I should. After listening to this book, I was shocked at how much I didn't know these women as much as I should. It took the depth and scope that MacArthur wrote about to "awaken" me to these sisters in the Lord.


    Which character – as performed by Tamara Adams – was your favorite?

    I really found that after a good study of these women, I loved them all and was enlightened to wonderful nuggets of great information that I had either forgotten about when I read the Bible or that MacArthur knew from other writings.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Ladies of the Light


    Any additional comments?

    I would also suggest MacArthur's "Twelve Ordinary Men" It's a great compliment to this one as Dr. MacArthur writes a similar book, but obviously about men of the Bible. It's just as good :)

    "Better study guide rather than audio book."

    I think this would be better as a study book rather than audio. The author uses supporting scriptures through out. I found the scripture references broke my thought. But the book as a whole sparked my interest in these women of the Bible.

    "A great disappointment"

    I was delighted with this audiobook until the author began discussing the Blessed Virgin Mary. Then he began bashing the Catholic church and those who honor the Mother of Jesus. It was obvious that this author knows very little of what he was talking about. I could not finish listening to this audiobook because of this author's disregard for this very Holy woman. It was a great disappointment.
