Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This weekly devotional series offers Christian women a chance to study the lives and legacies of 52 women in Scripture--from Eve and Mary to lesser-known women such as Tamar. "Women of the Bible" includes an introductory section on each woman and an explanation of her legacy of prayer.

Synopsis:

This weekly devotional series offers contemporary Christian women a chance to study the lives and legacies of women in Scripture. Stories of prominent as well as lesser-known biblical figures offer provocative and fascinating insights. Included is an introductory section listing each woman's name, character, sorrow, joy, and key Scriptures. (August)

Synopsis:

Though we are familiar with the Bible's most noteworthy men, many of us know little about women of the Bible and the important roles they played in the story of salvation.The cast is long and colorful, including a parade of prostitutes, evil queens, peasants, and prophetesses. And though our culture differs vastly from theirs, we instinctively understand these women as they agonize over infertility, worry about their children, long for a little real affection, and struggle to find faith. Far from being one-dimensional characters, these are flesh-and-blood women whose mistakes and failings often mirror our own and whose collective wisdom yields rich insight into our struggle to live with faith and courage.Taken from the best-seller Women of the Bible, each of the fifty-two stories in this book concludes with a brief reflection encouraging us to pray in light of the woman's story, thereby deepening our understanding of Scripture and our experience of prayer.

Synopsis:

This one-year devotional program offers contemporary Christian women a chance to study the lives and legacies of fifty-two women in Scripture.
