Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

As befits a publication from Revell, these biographical sketches have an evangelical slant. Hosier, a prolific author of spiritual titles and biographies, admits that she had no specific selection criteria, and the result is eclectic; entries range from Mother Teresa to Marabel Morgan, Aimee Semple McPherson to Anita Bryant, Susan B. Anthony to Kathy Lee Gifford. The sketches, which vary from fewer than 200 words to seven pages in length, emphasize the role of faith in each woman's life and are organized into eight categories covering writing, education, entertainment, literature, business and politics, mission work, evangelism and ministry, and motherhood. A brief bibliography identifies the sources used in compiling the entries. While the tone is one of praise rather than objective analysis, this work makes a significant contribution in identifying women who are frequently omitted from standard reference texts. Recommended for large public libraries and women's studies collections.DJan Blodgett, Davidson Coll. Lib., NC

Helen Kooiman Hosier gave me the beautiful gift of enabling me to get to know and understand the hearts and genius of 100 Christian heroines

Every person on the planet over 12 would benefit from reading this book. Imagine learning the stories of women whose names you have heard, but don't know where they came from, how they got to make a difference in our world, and why they made the choices they made.

I was amazed at the deep faith of women heroines I never knew were Christians.

Here is one example of a name that I have heard all my life: Florence Nightengale. One patient in a hospital said this of Florence Nightengale's impact on him as she made her nightly rounds with her lamp to light her way: "What a comfort it was to see her pass even. She would speak to one, and nod and smile to as many more; but she could not do it all, you know. We lay there by hundreds; but, we could kiss her shadow as it fell and lay our heads on the pillow again content."

The book is great, and I got it on time and in good condition. One of my "she-roes" Catherine Kroeger is in it, so that was great to read.

Format: Paperback
This collection of brief biographies of 100 women from different walks of life, living in different places, periods and cultures, who each served God in her own unique way is incredibly inspiring and motivational. My 8 year old daughter, who insisted that I read parts of this book to her, actually said this was a "cool" book. My only disappointment is that Oprah Winfrey, who is one of the most high profile God loving women in recent times, was not included.
