Publisher's Summary

Women of the Bible focuses on 52 remarkable women in Scripture - women whose struggles to live with faith and courage are not unlike your own. And now this best-selling devotional study book has been updated and expanded to enhance its flexibility, usefulness, and relevance for both individuals and groups.

Small groups will especially welcome the way the Bible studies have been streamlined to fit the unique needs of the group setting. Other important changes include:

  • A list of all the women of the Bible
  • A timeline of the women of the Bible
  • A list of women in Jesus' family tree
  • A list of women in Jesus' life and ministry

Vital and deeply human, the women in this book encourage you through their failures as well as their successes. You'll see how God acted in surprising and wonderful ways to draw them - and you - to himself. This year-long devotional offers a unique method to help you slow down and savor the story of God's unrelenting love for his people, offering a fresh perspective that will nourish and strengthen your personal communion with him.

Critic Reviews

"What shines through in this well-written book is the authors' great respect for these gritty, intelligent, and occasionally flawed women. The authors briefly tell each woman's life story in an enchanting storytelling voice, helping readers to see how these ancient stories still have meaning centuries later. The book is well-organized, offering a woman's story for every week of the year, as well as a week's worth of structured lessons and reflections." (Amazon.com review)

So many Women

This is an inspirational book about the women of the bible. I didn't remember there being so many. The author did great background research. It's been interesting to pre-read the passages and then do the weekly study - sometimes a different observation or slant is presented. A good read.

empowering

If you could sum up Women of the Bible in three words, what would they be?

educational, enlightening and insprirational.

Who was your favorite character and why?

ruth, because was she willing to give up everything that was familiar to her;Then venture on a journey that was unknown.

Have you listened to any of Sarah Rutan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

no, had no past reference.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

not extreme, but found it very educational and inspiring, since most of the Bible stories seemed more centered on the men of the Bible.

Any additional comments?

would recommend this to all women as a source of encouragement and inspirational.

Powerfully different view on women

As a woman I had always seen myself as a second-class citizen, but after listening to this book repeatedly, I have a different opinion. Obviously I don't think women are superior, but how powerful and liberating this book has been. I didn't use it as a yearly Bible study, being disabled I have listened overnight, and during morning ablutions, in the presence of carers, over a period of about 10 days. I would recommend this book to any woman, or man, and expect a totally different mindset! 100% excellent!
