Saints, sinners, harlots, and angels—all are included in this wonderful biographical reference and collection of stories of over 400 biblical women. See how their struggles, successes, and failures still resonate today.
If you've ever asked yourself the question, "Who was she?" while reading the Bible, you need only to open this amazing book to find out.
A devotional study of the women who taught us love and compassion, this comprehensive guide presents the successes and shortcomings of all of the key characters in the Good Book. As you review the lives of these classic matriarchs, you'll find that most of these biblical women have joys and follies that align with your own.
All the Women of the Bible is divided into two sections: The Book of Names and The Book of Stories.
- The Book of Names: With over 400 entries, this well-researched and easy-to-follow biographical dictionary and "thesaurus" lists each woman, along with a short description of her life, citations where her story can be found, and cross references to other dictionary entries.
- The Book of Stories: Taking a different, more narrative tone, this second part retells in rich detail the stories of 56 very important women—women whose lives were changed by crisis and challenge; women who learned, shared, or shunned faith in the Lord.
