I love history, so I was really excited to find this in my church's bookstore a few years back. It took me awhile to read all of it because it is weighty material; but if you like to read church history, this is the book for you. It covers from the 1500s to the early 21st Century.

I actually finished this book some time ago, but never got around to reviewing it. Severance's book is dense reading (and very small print!) but well worth the investment of time and mental energy. Her survey of women in the history of the church is insightful and uplifting, and she does a wonderful job of weaving the threads of history and Scripture together. Highly recommend!
