The most Important Women of the Bible
Powerful Stories of Women in the Bible that Reveal God's Mercy and Love
From well-known women like Eve and Esther to those lesser known like Jochebed and Zipporah, women of the Bible play a vital role in God's timeless story of redemption.
This book traces the stories of three dozen of the most important women in Scripture, each handpicked by God to play a crucial part in his gracious plan for all humanity. Every chapter begins with a short biography followed by an explanation of how each woman fits into the overall narrative of the Gospel message, pointing to God's love for the individual as well as his larger plan to redeem sinners through the sending of his son. The Bible is the story of God's relationship with his people--men, women, Jews, Gentiles, saints, and sinners. But this book reveals that it's also the story of his relationship with you
My thoughts: This book is a fun one, since it is like a synopsis of many of the women in the Bible and their lives. I like that each chapter sums up the story of that woman a bit and then has some thoughts that we ponder about each of the women. Some of the numbers were a bit of a stretch, but I still enjoyed this book and brushing up on my knowledge of the women in the Bible.
I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
