Overview

Stories of women larger than life, yet who were vulnerable and in need of God's loving aid -- these are the stories you'll find in Twelve Strong Women of God: Biblical Models for Today. Both women and men who read these stories will recognize some of the challenges they face in their own lives. They can take courage from the example of the biblical heroines Marci Alborghetti writes about in such an insightful and easy-to-read style. Reflect on the heroism of Miriam and of the Pharaoh's daughter in protecting Moses, the future leader of Israel. Admire the struggle of Deborah to carry out her role as judge at a time when Israel was unfaithful to God and men dominated the culture. Consider the loyalty of Ruth in following her mother-in-law to a strange land where the people worshipped a different God, and where they had to rely on providence for their home and food. The first person narrative brings these figures even more fully to life and closer to our own life situations. It enables us to connect with these women in a very personal way and find answers and direction for the challenges we face. Twelve Strong Women of God is an invaluable resource for everyone who would like to know more about the women in the Bible and how they can be models for us today.

    Educational and inspirational

    Equal parts informational, inspirational and encouraging is this new book by Marci Alborghetti. 12 Strong Women of God offers twelve first person narratives of biblical models, some better known than others. Alborghetti has the ability to infuse these women with life, turning each into an example of strength and courage. Each chapter concludes with an 'active meditation' passage, as well as a series of reflection/discussion questions. The book would make a fascinating resources for group study, prompting excellent discussions. Timely and thought provoking topics such as war and its causes and consequences, prayer life, family relations and more are covered. The book would also be excellent for any individual looking to deepen his or her own Biblical knowledge and personal prayer life. Thank you to Marci Alborghetti for this resource - educational and encouraging!
