Format: Perfect Paperback
The women's Sunday school class that I teach is enjoying this book study. It leads us into great discussion of both the Bible and current events. I love it when a study can do both!

This is a wonderful book for anyone, but I can just imagine how helpful it would be for a small church book club to explore the women who carry the message of God in this book. The Bible was written at a time when woman were overlooked as instrumental beings of God's message through Christ. I recommend this book highly to anyone looking to find the feminine in the Bible. The stories of these women will open your minds and your hearts. Thank you for this book, Ms. Helen Bruch Pearson.

3 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Elizabeth A Triano VINE VOICE on March 6, 2006
Format: Perfect Paperback
I had to give it a rating to submit a review, but I have not read this book yet. I came to amazon.com to get more information about it after seeing it in the Upper Room catalog. Here is the information per the catalog: "In Matthew's Gospel, four women are named in the genealogy of Jesus. They are Tamar, Raham, Ruth and Bathsheba. At the right time, these women appeared and made decisions that changed the future. They were empowered by God to step beyond the patriarchal structure on which they depended. This book challenges our understanding of how God works through our lives and in the larger world."
