Quite often, when a woman wants to understand biblical womanhood… she turns to the Proverbs 31 scripture. However, this is not the only woman ever mentioned in the scriptures. She is among the company of many notable women who fulfilled very specific roles in God’s plan.
Esther. Deborah. Miriam. Hagar. Mary. Martha. Eunice. Lois, Priscilla. Lydia. Mary Magdalene.
And those are just the ones we have names for. There is also the woman at the well, the woman who touched the hem of his robe… just as examples.
FaithWords provided the book Successful Women of the Bible to be reviewed, and I think it is a valuable addition to your library. If you are a fan of Liz Curtis Higgins Bad Girls of the Bible books, you’ll have the same affinity for Successful Women of the Bible. Washington Patton looks at these influential women in the scriptures, updates their story to a more modern adaptation that readers can relate to.
Each chapter focuses on one woman’s story, allowing you to work through this book as quickly or slowly as you wish. It would make a great book for a Christian Women’s Book Club, Small Group Study, or broken up into a series of Women’s Ministry event topics.
