What the Critics Say

"What shines through in this well-written book is the authors' great respect for these gritty, intelligent, and occasionally flawed women. The authors briefly tell each woman's life story in an enchanting storytelling voice, helping readers to see how these ancient stories still have meaning centuries later. The book is well-organized, offering a woman's story for every week of the year, as well as a week's worth of structured lessons and reflections." (Amazon.com review)

So many Women

This is an inspirational book about the women of the bible. I didn't remember there being so many. The author did great background research. It's been interesting to pre-read the passages and then do the weekly study - sometimes a different observation or slant is presented. A good read.
