Author: Ruth A. TuckerPublisher: Baker Book HouseThey were wives, mothers, daughters, and friends. They were faithful and faithless. They were benevolent and they were brutal.
But always, they were real.
The pages of Scripture are brimming with women who are edgy, strong willed, and controversial. Far from the stereotype of sweet and submissive, many women of the Bible steal the show from their male counterparts, despite being cast in supporting roles. What parts did these women have in the vast family of God? What challenges did they face that we face even today? And what can we learn from them if we allow them to be the three-dimensional people they really were?
In Dynamic Women of the Bible
, more than fifty biblical women are summoned from their graves to live again. What we can learn from their unique stories will surprise you--and it might just make you blush.
With plentiful sidebars and discussion questions, this book is perfect for small groups, Bible studies, book clubs, and personal reading.Ruth A. Tucker
