Lost Women of the Bible
easily (easily!) makes my "most-provocative" book list for this year. -- Gordon MacDonald, Editor at Large for Leadership Journal, and Chairman of World Relief
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
From the Publisher
The women of the Bible have a strong, relevant message for women today that has been lost underneath layers of traditional interpretations and the expectation that God does his most important work through men. Crucial dimensions of their lives have been muted, forgotten, or passed over. Their strong voices are silent at a time when women are searching for answers that will hold up under the pressures and challenges confronting them today. This book brings the women of the Bible into the twenty-first century by recovering their powerful message for contemporary women.
