Book Review of
Lost Women of the Bible
You know the women of the Bible, but you don’t know them like this… It’s easy for Christian women—young and old—to get lost between the opportunities and demands of the present and the biblical teachings of the past. They live in a confusing world, caught in the crossfire between church and culture. Although home and family still remain central, more women than ever, by choice or by necessity, are blending home, career, and ministry. They need strong biblical role models to help them meet these challenges. Building on solid scholarship and a determination to wrestle honestly with perplexing questions, author Carolyn Custis James sheds new light on ancient stories that brings the women of the Bible into the twenty-first century. This fresh look at the women in the Bible unearths surprising new insights and a powerful message that will leave readers feeling challenged, encouraged, and deeply valued. Rediscover and be inspired by: • Eve • Sarah • Hagar • Tamar • Hannah • Esther • Mary • and others
This book was given to me by a long time friend. She read it and really enjoyed it and thought I would too. I like to have one Christian, devotional type book or biography, going at all times. I usually read them slowing and really think about what I am reading. This book was just that for me. I really enjoyed it. It covered a lot about women most people don’t write about. It gave me a lot to think about when it comes to what women in the Bible did and didn’t do. There is much we can learn about the examples they set.
