Publisher's Summary

They were ordinary, common, and in some cases shockingly low-caste, yet each was made extraordinary by her life-changing encounter with God.

Twelve Extraordinary Women offers a poignant and personal look into the lives of some of the Bible's most faithful women. Their struggles and temptations are the same trials faced by all believers at all ages. 

Inside this book, best-selling author and Bible teacher John MacArthur shows that the God to whom they were so committed is the same God who continues to mold and use ordinary people today.

Twelve Extraordinary Women features the stories of:

  • Eve
  • Sarah
  • Rahab
  • Ruth
  • Hannah
  • Mary
  • Anna
  • The Samaritan Woman
  • Martha and Mary
  • Mary Magdalene
  • Lydia

A study guide and accompanying table are available in the audiobook companion PDF download. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Great History, Mixed Message

If I was just rating how this book opened my eyes to the lessons and history behind the Bible, I would give this a 5/5 stars! However, through some comments that the author said, I can tell that he and I don't agree on what a Christian women's place is in the world. I am a Liberal person and I knew I wouldn't agree with all of his interpretations. That being said, I would recommend this listen to anyone who wants to understand the Bible better, even if I didn't agree with his personal thoughts.

I'm also very curious why Esther isn't on this list? I would like to have known what his process was for selecting 12 women from the Bible. Since only 2 of the Books are titled after women (Ruth and Esther), I would've assumed Esther would make the cut, especially considering her story!

Terrible

Terrible reading. Attacks the Catholic Church and is an obvious Protestant writer and using only Protestant teaching
