We should not be surprised that women have played such an important role in God's plan revealed in the Old and New Testaments, given their courage, vision, hospitality and their spiritual gifts. If the women studied in this book were extraordinary, it was not because of their natural abilities, but because of the power of the one true God that they worshiped and served.

In Twelve Extraordinary Women , you will learn much more than fascinating information about these women, but through their lives you will discover - perhaps for the first time - the unmistakable timeline of God's redemptive work in the story. These women were at the very heart of his plan, they were not incidental to it. And their wonderful stories are told in this book.

You will be challenged and motivated by this poignant and personal look into the lives of some of the most faithful women in the Bible. The struggles they have fought and the temptations they have had to overcome are the same trials that all believers face throughout. And the God to whom they were so devoted is the same God who continues to mold and use “ordinary” people of our time.
