If you know me at all you know I love to study the women of the Bible. This always reminds me how grateful I am to live in the 21st Century. The courage that it took to be a woman in Biblical times is immeasurable to say the least.
Yet these women who were often thought of as property not people, powered through. They pushed and pressed after their God, our God. Some of these women experienced Jesus face to face, I can only imagine what that must have been like.
LaTan Roland Murphy succeeds beautifully as she brings these women and their stories alive, afresh and anew. Her account of these ancient and courageous women is rich and deep, and their stories are still teaching us today.
I alway love to be left with a personal challenge and Latan does not disappoint, she sets us on a quest, a quest for courage, a quest to overcome, as we pursue after our God and His purpose for our lives.
