Publisher's Summary

If you could spend a few minutes with biblical heroines Ruth, Sarah, Mary, and others, what valuable lessons would they share with you? In the tradition of Running with the Giants and Learning from the Giants, John Maxwell shares wisdom on life and leadership inspired by the Bible - this time focusing solely on the stories of nine incredible women.

Learn how God blesses the promises you keep to him, why you should follow your heart to find your hope, and how not to miss your moment with God. Listen on your own or study with a group using the provided faith-building questions. You'll enjoy the journey with Maxwell as he imagines what it would be like to visit heaven and meet giants of the faith who had their lives transformed by God.

You'll gain insights from:

  • Ruth...for when you must make a decision but don't know what to do.
  • Sarah...for when you can't understand God, and impatience threatens to overwhelm you.
  • Mary...for when God asks you to do something outside of your comfort zone.

The women who influenced Maxwell inspired this audiobook, and he includes the perspectives of those closest to him in this volume. They and the giants of the faith who continue to inspire them will encourage you to fulfill your destiny and leave a lasting, positive impression on your family and the world.

A wonderful and inspirational book

I enjoyed listening to the book. Mr. Maxwell has a great writing style of allowing the reader to become part of the story. I had no problem invisioning me walking along side of him on this journey. Mr. Thompson did a wonderful job portraying the different women we encountered on our walk. I recommend this book to anyone who needs to be encouraged to reach their full potential.

I enjoyed it very much OK

This is the first book I have listen to from the beginning to the end. I really enjoyed the stories about the women in the Bible. They had me testing myself to see how much I knew about each woman. It gave me so much information I didn’t know about, that’s what I enjoyed. And I know you will enjoy it also.

WOW for Wisdom from Women in the Bible

The content of this book is great! These are great stories of heroism, leadership, and how we should live and respond to God. I've listened to it a couple of times already because I'm enjoying it and it is definitely spiritually edifying. I've only had it for about a week. I believe John Maxwell, himself, is narrating this book. The performance and story(ies) are great!

a Great Listen.

this book made me look at God and these women in a whole new light. Mr. Maxwell made the story so very interesting that I couldn't wait to get back to it each time and I even listened to it a second time, taking notes for reflection. Good job!

Answer the questions!

This book will mean nothing until you do a deep search within yourself by answering the questions at the end of each chapter. Phenomenal!

This is what I've been looking for!

This book is a must read/listen. I have always wanted to an opportunity to engage with the women in the bible and this book offered me just that. It feels like I have been in the presence of these women...hearing them speak of their stories inspires a deeper understanding and connection. As I listened it certainly felt like i was being mentored by all these women of old. They have indeed spoken into my life. My only regret though was that Esther was not part of them but perhaps just as God led me to this book he'll help me meet her in another way. Thank you John C. Maxwell for allowing God to use you to speak to me.
