Overview

It’s not easy being a woman in today’s world. The demands and expectations you face can be overwhelming. And deep within, there is a longing for something more—for a real opportunity to meet with God and be changed in his presence.

In this six-session DVD study based on the bestselling devotional Women of the Bible, you’ll meet six women who encountered God and whose lives were forever changed. These remarkable women will encourage you through their failures as well as their successes. You’ll see how God drew them to himself as they struggled to live with faith in a world filled with trials. And you’ll see how their lives, though lived long ago, speak with fresh relevance to the issues in your life and relationships today.

This volume will introduce you to six of the key characters of the Old Testament. You’ll study the lives of:

• Rebecca, Breaking free of feminine stereotypes (Jonalyn Fincher)
• Abigail, Dealing with confrontation in relationships (Elisa Morgan)
• Hannah, Struggling to wait and sacrifice (Amena Brown)
• Eve, Finding lasting contentment in the truth (Lysa Ter Keurst)
• Gomer, Learning to accept unconditional love (Jeanne Stevens)
• Leah, Overcoming rejection and insecurity (Naomi Zacharias)

This fresh look at the women in the Bible helps you discover new insights and provides a powerful witness to God’s gracious love that will leave you feeling challenged, encouraged, and deeply valued.
