436 Pages

WOMEN OF THE BIBLE is a one-year devotional program that offers contemporary Christian women a chance to study the lives and legacies of 52 women in Scripture. Some, such as Eve or “Lot’s wife,” are prominent and well-known biblical figures.

The book is well-organized, offering a woman’s story for every week of the year, as well as a week’s worth of structured lessons and reflections.



Women of the Bible, by Ann Spangler and Jean E. Syswerda, focuses on fifty-two remarkable women in Scripture women whose struggles to live with faith and courage are not unlike your own.

Even the lesser-known women–such as the daughter-in-law of Judah, Tamar, who disguised herself as a prostitute–offer provocative and fascinating stories. What shines through in this well-written book is the authors’ great respect for these gritty, intelligent, and occasionally flawed women.

The authors briefly tell each woman’s life story in an enchanting storytelling voice, helping readers to see how these ancient stories still have meaning centuries later.
