I had seen this book in a bookstore near Washington DC and was anxious to get it, but it was very expensive ($40). So, during my return trip home, I ordered it used and in great condition from a bookseller in Portland Oregon for ($12). It arrived quickly and in fantastic condition. The book itself is full of insights I had only partially contemplated, so I am very excited to be reading it. I am only part way into it because I really want to take it slow and study it. (Im taking notes on it, looking up the scriptural references and researching it at the same time). So far, and not that I was even doubting because I know about this author, I have found it to be accurate. The illustrations are absolutely lovely, too. The way she integrates Hebraic words and meanings, too, I really appreciate. Couldn't be more pleased. I intend to pass it along to a friend when I am finished, as she is also excited to read it. Highly recommend it.

Great book with full page colored pictures. Interesting information, but did seem to be missing some prominent women from the Old Testament (like Ruth). This is a great coffee table book, probably about 1-1.5 inches thick.

I have not been disappointed with this book. It is a very wonderful study resource for learning about the women in the scriptures. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an aid for this study purpose.

First, I am not a woman, but enjoy studying the scriptures. This is a great read and reference. Although it is written form and LDS point of view, it is generic enough for any lover of the Old Testament.

The book, itself, is a real treasure! However, I was disappointed in the condition. The cover was bent (warped), and certainly did not have the appearance of new. The interior of the book was great.

The illustrations are stunning and the research & thought that went into the stories of each woman is excellent. I learned so much I never knew. I'm getting this book as a gift for several women I know.

What an absolutely gorgeous book! The cover and illustrations are stunning, and even the font and organization is fantastic to look at!

That aside, this is an incredibly important book for women and anyone else interested in the power of God in their lives. Ms. Olson examines the lives and stories of selected women to not only better tell their stories and share their worlds but to encourage the reader to think about her own life, testimony, and relationship with the gospel and with God.

So here we have it, a book that finds the wondrous balance of historical information as well as spiritual inspiration. Photos of actual spots of the Holy Land and drawings of possible tools/accessories/etc. are used to bring these women's stories to tangible life. Histories and background information are given. And each chapter ends with a short list of thought-provoking questions for discussion and personal reflection.

Oh, but this is one well-done book! Women, you will love this.
