Content

All the women of the Bible offers a rich biographical perspective on evey female figure in scripture -- including the famous, the little-known, and even the unnamed. 
In more that 300 engaging and insightful portraits, Edith Deen brings alive the saints and sorceresses, queens and servants, mothers and daughters, wives and widows whose profound influence is felt through-out the Bible.
"You can almost trace light and darkness in the Bible by the women themselves,"she writes.
"Hannah, praying mother of Samuel, gave birth to a son who became the first great Hebrew prophet.
And, of course, there was the mother of Jesus.
On the other hand, Jezebel and Herodias were vile influences, the first tearing apart the northern kingdom of Israel, the second causing John the Baptist to be beheaded."Combining thorough detail with a lively and dramatic narrative, All of the Women of the Bible portrays the real women behind the Biblical stories and shows how, in their human struggles and triumphs, they are very much like the women of today.
With each major biography identified by Bible chapter and verse and prefaced by a key passage of scripture, this is an ideal resources for teachers, Bible students, preachers, and writers, as well as anyone who wants to learn what it was really like to be a woman in Biblical times.

  •     This book was recommended to me and I purchased more than 1 copy. I am well pleased with the content and the extent of the information along with the way the information is arranged in the table of contents. I lead a women's ministry group and we have found that this is a good resource for studying the different women of the bible and it good information about some women that we knew nothing about. I have recommended this to others.
  •     I certainly enjoyed reading this book with my daughter, I think women of the Bible were very influential in their quest of spiritual enlightenment and that there is something to learn from both the good and protagonistic side of these women regardless of what they did or how they lived. She did her research, a good read for anyone.The Ancient History of the Egyptians, Carthaginians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Medes and Persians, Macedonians and Grecians (Vol. 1 of 6)
  •     Our women's study group elected to add this as one of our study tools. Great addition!

  •     It seems there was very little research, by the author before writing this book. I was looking for factual and insightful information, which is not in this book. I will continue to look for a book about Biblical Women. I do not recommend this book.

  •     I really love this book. It's easy to follow, I'm walking around the house with the book in my hands because I can't wait to read about the next woman. This book brings every thing together and how important these women were and how much they reflex a lot of what's going on today.
  •     I enjoyed reading this book and appreciated the excellent descriptive layouts of listing all the women of the Bible. The author, Edith Deen, has tried to stay true to the Scriptures and also shared extra information of the times and locations these women lived in. Am grateful for the author's work and time to write of these women who exemplified triumphs and falls in their lives, and we learn lessons from them and we are the blessed ones.
