Lost Women of the Bible: The Women We Thought We Knew Paperback – February 7, 2008
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Carolyn James's title cunningly combines three thoughts: here are stories of women who spiritually were lost till the grace of God found them; here are Bible people from whom we can learn much, but of whom we have largely lost sight; and here is displayed divine wisdom, with which many of us have lost touch. At all three levels the book delivers handsomely, and I hope it will be widely read. -- J. I. Packer, Board of Governors and Professor of Theology, Regent College

One of the main concepts of the book which we enjoyed was that of Christian women as "ezers", strong helpers, who share equal responsibility for spreading the gospel in a Blessed Alliance with men. James talks about the value of the ministries of women within the church but stops short of mentioning that a woman can lead a congregation as a minister.
I believe this book will be most useful to those who are new to the stories of women in the Bible or feel undervalued as women. However, with so many wonderful books available for small group Bible study, I would not recommend this one.
