Description

Women in the Bible aren't shy or retiring; they're fierce and funny and demanding and relevant to 21st-century people.

Women in the Biblesome of their names we know, others weve only heard, and others are tragically unnamed.

Pastor and provocateur Alice Connor introduces these women and invites us to see them not as players in a mans storyas victims or temptersnor as morality archetypes, teaching us to be better wives and mothers, but as fierce foremothers of the faith.

These womens stories are messy, challenging, and beautiful. When we read their stories, we can see not only their particular, fearsome lives but also our own.
