An Inciteful, Biblical Approach to Womanhood & the Women of the Bible

This is a Biblical approach to examining various women in the Bible. John MacArthur does a character study of these women within the context of the Bible & God's purpose for women within the church & within the home. Instead of pandering to the popular secular & 'Christian' culture of today, he takes a close look at the godly, scriptural characteristics that makes these women extraordinary. No doubt, he will come under attack by the feminists that are represented within & outside of today's modern church. I highly recommend this book to those who truly desire to see Biblical womanhood through the principals in the Bible.

i can only hope this is the worst book i will ever read.

i cannot fathom there being another book in existence that is worse than this one. ... i can sum up the vast majority of this book in one word: UNSUBSTANTIATED. as far as geographical and archaeological facts, and church ritual and history, i have no disputes. however, ...
i cannot fathom there being another book in existence that is worse than this one. ... i can sum up the vast majority of this book in one word: UNSUBSTANTIATED. as far as geographical and archaeological facts, and church ritual and history, i have no disputes. however, in my opinion, the remainder of the book [i.e. THE TOPIC] is by and large a fanciful extrapolation of what macarthur THINKS and ASSUMES what these extraordinary women SHOULD be. macarthur has extracted the biblical accounts of these twelve women and created twelve chapters of fabricated nonsense, with no citations, no research, no evidence, and nothing remotely resembling a concrete reason for his blatant assumptions. he has attempted to fit these beautiful women into a box that exists only in his own mind. ... macarthur takes away the respect and the power and the beauty of these women, and leaves the reader with nothing but a superficial shell of these heroes of the faith. you get the feeling he is writing [and i use that term loosely] with either an air of contempt that God would dare use the 'weaker sex' in his kingdom or with a condescending pat on the head to women everywhere, a sort of 'there, there, now, isn't this a nice little book for you girls? now go off and play in the kitchen' air. ... and the writing. OH, THE WRITING. the editors, the publishers, the typists, the people in the mailroom, EVERYONE was sleeping on this one. i lost count of the times the words 'of course,' 'obviously,' 'naturally,' and all derivatives thereof were used before i finished the first chapter. grown adults writing publishable material should not have to rely on such sad measures to prove their points. ... obviously. ... this book is a disservice to women, to the Church, to Christendom. the only positive comment i have about this horrific piece of writing is that it certainly creates discussion for our women's small group.
