I read through this book several years ago, and appreciated the details that the authors included. This Christmas, I gave copies to 2 friends who had expressed interest in a more consistent personal Bible study time. The book includes 52 chapters. Each week is broken up into 5 days of study focusing on a different woman in the Bible, retelling her story and highlighting the cultural context. Study questions and practical application points are included as well. Although I have been studying the Bible for many years, I gained new understanding of how God worked through these women and how He continues to work today!

Like the study, but for nook some of the text gets tweeked in placement. It's not too hard to figure out, but it would be nice if it were fixed.

We are using this book as our guide in a weekly lunch-time Bible Study with about 12 women. The study has been exciting, encouraging and enlighting. The book's format is perfect for this kind of group sharing.

I purchased this to give my personal Bible study time a boost, and have not been disappointed. My goal was to study one woman per week for this year. The 5 daily readings on each of the 52 women are brief enough that I can easily catch up when I miss a day (and even do them all in one sitting, which I have done several times!). The readings are both challenging and thought-provoking. Highly recommended!

I have found this book to be exceptional. It grants the reader a deeper understanding and connection with the woman's relationship to God. For men it will definately show them a more positive and new way to look at their female conterparts. I screamed with joy and always felt blessed reading each story and develing into the study and reflections of how it relates to myself.

I'm going to read every last story, because I realize in every story I can find a piece of me, something to learn and something to pray about. Everyday is a new day for a new beginning.

This is a great devotional book. I have been ministered through every story. It especially blessed me to see how GOd care so much for every women mentioned in such a tender loving way. Jesus truly knows how to care and love women.

Never before have I read such wonderful words on the women of the bible. More understanding of these women I thought I would never find. Makes them come to LIFE and shows me they are/were just like us.

I have been reading Women of the Bible as a devotional at night. It is full of good Biblical information on women to the Bible. It is well researched. I have learned a lot through reading this book. I have been able to use some of the material for our home Bible study.

We (The Daughters of the King) are using this book for a Bible Study and we are enjoying every time we meet to review one Women of the Bible. There are 52 chapters and we have devided them up among the group and each one has taken several chapter. Then each week another person is presenting the Woman they chose to the group. We are learning alot about what the Woman of the Bible and the way they were treated and how God worked through them. This is one the the best study's were have ever done and I recomend it to all groups looking for a book to use for a Study. I especially recommend this to Woman's groups. Very easy to read and what an insite you will get on the life's of the Women of our passed which is not revealed to us as often as the Men are. Really enjoying this book so glad we decided to use this as are Study

I love this devotional. It looks in to the lives of different women, and sheds a new light on their life, struggles, relationship with God, etc. I'm getting ready to restart it, and would recommend it to anyone.

This book is very inspiring, uplifting, motivating for anyone wishing to have a closer spiritual walk with God. The daily prayers and verses are just what are needed for each morning and evening of your day. May you be richly blessed as you read this book.

I'm learning great insight to these women. The points are thought provoking. I find I think of these women and their lives during my week. Am I living my life as best as I can?!
