Publisher's Summary

In his eagerly anticipated follow-up to the enormously successful Seven Men, New York Times best-selling author Eric Metaxas gives us seven captivating portraits of some of history's greatest women, all of whom changed the course of history by following God's call upon their lives - as women.
Each of these world-changing figures - Joan of Arc, Susanna Wesley, Hannah More, Maria Skobtsova, Corrie ten Boom, Mother Teresa, and Rosa Parks - is an exemplary model of true womanhood. The teenaged Joan of Arc followed God's call and liberated her country, dying a heroic martyr's death. Susanna Wesley had 19 children and gave the world its most significant evangelist and its greatest hymn writer, her sons John and Charles. Corrie ten Boom, arrested for hiding Dutch Jews from the Nazis, survived the horrors of a concentration camp to astonish the world by forgiving her tormentors. And Rosa Parks' deep sense of justice and unshakeable dignity and faith helped launch the 20th-century's greatest social movement.
Writing in his trademark conversational and engaging style, Eric Metaxas reveals how the other extraordinary women in this book achieved their greatness, inspiring listeners to live lives shaped by the truth of the Gospel.

A Different Kind of Inspiring

While 7 Men revealed the stories behind men I already knew and the values they exemplify, 7 Women has told the stories of some less well known women and values less celebrated in our culture. Compared with modern feminism, in which the masculine form of boldness is urged on women, this was very refreshing. In fact, I found myself moved to tears multiple times by the level of compassion and trust in God which led to the bravery in the more well known Rosa Parks and Mother Theresa.

Definitely a good read for anyone regardless of gender, only be ready to be challenged by these women.

A lesson in how to be great

This books delves deep into the history of some women we know, and several women we should know. The books preamble is a bit off putting as it challenge the concept of feminist, but once you get past that, it's a good read

An excellent account of remarkable women.

The role of some of the women in this book has largely gone unnoticed, yet their example to us should never be forgotten. I recommend this book.
