Editorial Reviews

Review

Angela Joseph is gifted in her writing. She brings the women in the bible alive and I ended up seeing these woman as real women. I saw my own emotions and struggles in their stories. I came away feeling like I knew the women of the bible more and understanding just how personal a God we have. The book is organized in such a way that I was able to jump into a chapter that was dealing with something I personally was dealing with. And after reading a chapter, it stayed with me and moved me in a way that had me reflecting on God's purposes in our lives.

From the Author

This book started out as a series of blog entries leading up to Mother's Day. It was my intention to feature some of the most prominent mothers in the Bible so that readers could see them as role models for us to emulate. The more I read about women like Hannah, Sarah, Mary the mother of Jesus and the others the more I began to see them in a new light. As I pondered over their heartaches, joys and sorrows, the more real they seemed.

I researched concordances and references from the Scofield Bible and some Jewish rabbinical accounts to get a feel for what life was like for women in the days of the Bible. I also consulted other Women of the Bible books and eventually I decided that my blogs could be expanded into a book. However, as I began to write, I realized that these female charactes were not just "women of the Bible", they were women of today, the twenty-first century.

Life may have been more difficult for them in some ways and they were treated like second-class citizens (especially in the Old Testament), but overall they laughed and cried over the same things that make us laugh and cry, and they needed God's intervention in their lives just as we do today.  It was then that I changed the title of the book to Women For All Seasons. I felt that the characters would fit into today's society as easily as they did in theirs, and they showed the tenacity and resilience that caused them to endure no matter what the season was. Look at Ruth, Naomi, Mary Magdalene, Esther, to name a few, and you will see how they trusted God regardless of the season they were in. 

I found myself crying while I wrote some of the stories and as the Holy Spirit moved within me. I trust that readers of this book will be similarly moved, if not to tears, but at least to a greater understanding of God and how precious we are to Him as His daughters.
