Cheryl Forbes brings to light for the first time the stories of women whose words still have inestimable influence on believers. Discover many obscure women devotional writers -- such as Ellen Dyer, Mrs. C. S. DeRose, and Mary Wilder Tileston -- whose books went through numerous printings and thousands of hands.
Forbes links devotionals to the past -- to writers such as Teresa of Avila -- and to the present, where secularized devotionals such as Sarah Ban Breathnach's Simple Abundance rule bestseller lists. Women of Devotion through the Centuries is a literary history, a commentary on the culture of the time, and a critique of our own reading habits. Most of all, every page shines with a vision for reclaiming women writers of the past to serve as role models for today.
