Bestselling Author Reveals How God Empowers Women for Leadership and Purpose

Christian women are often led to believe they are God's afterthoughts—as if they were created inferior to men or destined by God to play a secondary role in life. Not so, says bestselling author J. Lee Grady, father of four daughters and a leading international voice confronting the abuse of women. He counters that the Bible's message is neither sexist nor patronizing.

Through sharing the lives of 23 mold-breaking biblical women, Grady shows how God enables his daughters to do amazing, even impossible things. He also reveals the empowering, yet often-overlooked, gifts God longs to give each of his daughters—gifts like wisdom, fruitfulness, leadership, family, and boldness. When women learn to receive each of these, and more, as a divine inheritance, they will live the fearless and beautiful lives of purpose God desires for them.

I really enjoyed this book. J. Lee Grady is such a terrific writer! The stories of courageous women of both the Bible and modern times were so compelling. For me, this is one of those books that was so readable and interesting. At the end of each chapter, there are questions and a short devotional message. This would make a great book for a womens Bible study group. I plan on giving this book as gifts to friends; that's how much I liked it. I am mystified as to how someone gave it a one star rating. : )

In Fearless Women of the Bible the author gives us indisputable evidence of God’s plan for and use of women. He does this using not only Scriptural references, but also historical accounts and modern day examples. It’s so easy to follow and understand God’s path for women when reading Fearless Women of the Bible, you’ll wonder why anyone ever thought we wouldn’t be used for His purposes.
