"Hebrew women were honored as mothers and wives, but their influence and the dimensions of their lives were not limited to those roles. Women served as ministers in the temple, as diplomats, midwives, weavers, dancers, innkeepers, harvest gatherers, and more. They ruled nations and households. They started and halted wars. Some sinned, but others walked uprightly." In this thought-provoking and inspiring book, the author presents penetrating portraits of such well-known women as Eve, Sarah, Rebekah, Ruth, Mary, and Elizabeth. But she also reveals fascinating details about other, less familiar women, such as Deborah, the woman at the well, the woman with the issue of blood, Potiphar's wife, Bathsheba, Delilah, and Jezebel. Altogether, she presents nineteen chapters covering over forty different women found in the Bible. The author writes, "The women portrayed in scripture struggled with problems not unlike those women face today. Whether they lived in tents, Palestinian villages, or New World cities, their spiritual experiences, their faith, and their relationships with Deity offer meaningful commentary on life then and now." Our Sisters in the Bible is perfect for those who want to better understand themselves and the message of the scriptures, this book provides a fascinating look at our sisters in the Bible.
