At first glance, I thought this was just another devotional book written by the women on the cover. It surprised me that it is not a devo but a collection of inspirational short stories, written by the author, about women who have made -- some who are making -- a difference in the world. Then I discovered the alphabetical order of names, making it an easy reference to locate a woman and read about her. The enormous variety of women was a surprise; one funded a seminary, "Biddy" Chambers published her husband's sermons, one was a martyr for Christ, some were preachers, monarchs, reformers, stay-at-home moms who founded companies, others today are singers, songwriters, and evangelists, and one is our First Lady. What a surprise to discover the scores of websites and resources listed in the back. I'm pleasantly surprised with the easy-to-read format and challenging "My Response" question at the end of each short story.

As a professional speaker and writer on child behavior, I recognize many of my colleagues. This book is well-written and enlightening. It's definitely a delight and a keeper!

I was so inspired by the pages of Sisterhood of Faith. Each page tells of women making a difference for the cause of Christ. Sometimes we look at our lives and struggle with our day to day issues. When I begin my morning reading a page from this book it helps me put my life into perspective. The women of this book took their ordinary lives and focused their efforts towards the cause of Christ. If you are a housewife that needs encouragement, a woman in ministry who is struggling with her call or someone who wants to start her day being uplifted, this is the book for you! You have got to have it!

Shirley Brosius has written a beautiful and important book that I would highly receommend for every woman (and even man!). SISTERHOOD OF FAITH provides a stunning array of strong Christian women (365 in all) who have powerfully influenced the world for the better. From Abigail Adams to Catherine Marshall and more, Brosius insightfully captures the essence of their different committment and courage, and she reveals their power through her words. Each woman's story also includes a helpful Biblical verse and a question for thought. My wife and I very much appreciated their stories and the way in which they inspired our own. In a society that is often rocked by demeaning culture, Brosius's book shines as an example of love, courage and risk. It is, indeed, a beautiful and inspiring work.

We bought this as a present for a family member who requested an inspirational book. This is a book with descriptions of women of faith who have done impressive things with their lives. You would think that would be inspirational, no?

No. I can't put my finger on how it misses. There's a little too much dry detail, and you cannot hear the voice of the amazing women well. It is as if they are caught, flattened, in a musty encyclopedia. You can't breathe the air that sustained them, you can't taste their spice of life.

It is great to see the lives of so many women (365) celebrated. I just wish it could have been to better effect.

I like pretty books. Pretty books that are a pleasure to read is utopia for this reader's heart. The very cover calms me and invites a reader in.

This daily journal is perfect to place by your nightstand. Every morning or night you can read about wonderful, inspiraed women who work in their own way to better the world. Each woman's name, birthdate, service, message and story fits on one beautiful page. Also, each day you can read an inspiring scripture that coincides with each story.

A lot of these women did great things but they didn't set out to change the world. Most considered themselves ordinary women like you and me. These stories inspire and uplift the reader.

Shirley and her publishing team truly did an inspired job creating this book. I think it's perfect to give to a girlfriend or keep for yourself.

This book highlights profiles of 365 women of faith. The individuals are drawn from a multi-hundred year span, making it a useful resource for people who like history, especially history of the Church. But it’s not just a historical reference. It provides the reader with inspiration to think, ‘If these women could serve God under such conditions, perhaps I could do more for Him today.’
Men and women of all ages can find clues about Christian service from reading the stories and linking the scriptures with each story to it. This is a timeless book that will be a tool for speakers, writers, followers of Christ for generations.
Highly recommend.
