They live in a confusing world, caught in the crossfire between church and culture. Although home and family still remain central, more women than ever, by choice or by necessity, are blending home, career, and ministry. They need strong biblical role models to help them meet these challenges.Building on solid scholarship and a determination to wrestle honestly with perplexing questions, author Carolyn Custis James sheds new light on ancient stories that brings the women of the Bible into the twenty-first century. This fresh look at the women in the Bible unearths surprising new insights and a powerful message that will leave readers feeling challenged, encouraged, and deeply valued.Rediscover and be inspired by:• Eve• Sarah• Hagar• Tamar• Hannah• Esther• Mary• and others Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane | 2/18/2014

    " Huge help as a study guide. She really helps me think about the scriptures in ways that I haven't before: makes me dig deeper. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hawley | 1/21/2014

    " Though this book wasn't perfect, it was a really interesting read that covered many overlooked and under-discussed females in the bible. I appreciated the author's insights and overall message, which I understood to be that God works in many different ways and yet uses the weak or unexpected to bless His kingdom. I would recommend it to any Christian women, of any age/race/background, who would like to connect more deeply with the women who came before with new insights and important revelations. Though it is researched, I'd consider this to be a more pastoral read than an academic one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthea | 1/14/2014

    " This book looks at women who are often overlooked or undervalued in the bible. She gives a historical perspective, a look at how the woman would feel and think, and how it relates to women today. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandscate Junocom | 1/11/2014

    " Every Christian Woman should read this book. It presents a balanced view of the role of women. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anne | 1/4/2014

    " This author provides a new perspective on the Bible! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julia | 12/25/2013

    " I loved this book! James is incredibly solid and insightful. I was blown away by her "different" thoughts on some of the Women of the Bible...really insightful and thought-provoking read!!! She really made me THINK and be greatful for the beautiful gift of Womanhood! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kay | 12/23/2013

    " James is one of my favorite Christian writers - her When Life and Beliefs Collide was one of the most thought-provoking ever. Here she presents a new take of many women of the Bible and the lessons they can teach any woman, whatever her state in life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 12/15/2013

    " Have you ever wanted to sucker punch the apostle Paul for his disparaging views on women? If you have, then you need to read this book; we may have misunderstood everything we thought we knew. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 12/1/2013

    " My favorite chapters were those on Hagar and Esther, though I also really appreciated the chapter on Tamar and gained a new perspective about Mary, the Mother of Jesus. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jennifer | 11/28/2013

    " This book was a disappointment. It was so conservative as far as gender roles (then and now), that I found it meaningless in relating to my life and our world today. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noelle | 2/8/2013

    " Not as good as "When life and beliefs collide" but still well done. Great for a women's bible study. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 9/13/2012

    " Still reading. Good insights so far! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jess Lucht | 5/11/2012

    " I'm reading this with my Latino Women's bible study. It's so-so. I think that the author speculates quite a bit about what women of the bible were thinking/feeling. The content has sparked many interesting conversations though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danielle | 3/18/2012

    " This book is amazing. It opened my eyes to so much of God's truth, and the place I have in His plan as a woman. The chapter on Eve alone is worth the price of this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie Mcaninch | 11/25/2010

    " Wonderful insight to the lives of these awesome women. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashleigh Isaac | 9/12/2010

    " This book provides an interesting perspective on how the women of the bible are often overlooked and shouldn't be... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruth | 8/24/2010

    " Read this during the first few months of my marriage... trying to figure out what type of wife to become. Now I want to name a daughter Ezer.. ;-) What a beautifully dignifying portrait of the bible's easily-forgotten women. How honoring and majestic. Loved this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 8/5/2010

    " I found this to be a very eye opening book. I enjoyed the window into ancient cultures. I had just read her other book about Ruth and loved it so I moved on to this one. I actually liked this better. I think all women should read it. It made me feel much better to be a woman. "

    " I am "reading" this for our womens bible study- the book is ok, kindof a stretch in speculation on what some understated women in the bible could have been like, but we have some pretty interesting convos as a result of the topics / discussion ques.
    Eh. "
