"A fine work of drawing the reader into the historical and spiritual life of these early pioneer missionaries. Well worth reading as a family."
—Lars and Elisabeth Gren (Elliot)
"Noël Piper tells the stories of five women whose lives declare something we have almost forgotten-what it means to be a Christian. May the influence of this book cause that awareness to burn brightly again in our generation!"
—Ray and Jani Ortlund, Renewal Ministries
"I highly recommend this book as one of the great sagas of missionaries and Christian biography."
—David M. Howard Jr., Professor of Old Testament, Bethel University, St. Paul, Minnesota
"We live in a Christian subculture that can intimidate women from stepping out in faithful risk-taking for God. Noël Piper challenges all of us to move away from intimidation to imitation: 'Remember your leaders . . . imitate their faith' (Hebrews 13:7)."
—Dr. Rick and Fran LoveDr. Rick Love, Intl. Director, Frontiers, and Fran Love, editor of Longing to Call Them Sisters: Ministry to Muslim Women
Noël Piper (BA, Wheaton College) and her husband, John, ministered at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota for over 30 years. She is the author of Treasuring God in Our Traditions and Faithful Women and Their Extraordinary God.
The book is well written and easy to read.
And if that is the ultimate purpose of any Christian biography, which I believe it ought to be, Noel Piper has done well with Faithful Women & Their Extraordinary God.
This book will definitely encourage your walk of faith and redirect your focus for eternity.
