Publisher Comments:

HAVE WOMEN CHANGED THAT MUCH SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME? Is there something about being a woman that transcends time and cultural differences? Are we, even after centuries of change, still sisters under the skin with women of radically different cultures who lived so long ago? Daughters of Eve invites you to examine some of the fascinating stories of biblical women. Some of these characters may be familiar to you; many you may have never heard of. As you learn about them, you may be surprised at what you learn about yourself. Be forewarned-the women of the Bible weren't always nice. But they were very real. And the ways in which they were courageous or cowardly, devoted or deceitful, are uniquely women's ways. Many of the issues they faced (violence, multiple marriages, manipulation, motherhood) are issues of urgent importance to women today. Much has changed since the first woman walked the earth. But at least one thing remains the same: being a woman is as challenging as it ever was. Come discover the uniqueness of womanhood-the things that after all these years still unite us as Daughters of Eve.

Synopsis:

The author's skill as a storyteller breathes new life into some of the fascinating characters of biblical times. Her intriguing tales of such women as Dinah, Rizpah, Jehosheba, and Hulda, and others readers may have never encountered before show that, even after centuries of change, women are still "sisters under the skin" who share common goals, fears, and joys.
