As an encyclopedic reference it gives short biographical sketches - in as much as is known - and bibliography of where these women appear. It was interesting to encounter a number of names and situations that I had missed entirely or forgotten when studying in a principally male Seminary.[return][return]Not the fascinating pleasure reading one might hope for, but a fine resource if you are trying to track down a contextual comment or are looking for references to how women might have been ...more

I have participated in numerous bible studies through the years & would suggest this particular book for youth that are being re-introduced to the bible only because it is far from boring & extremely fictionalized. It would certainly keep their attention! If you read it or choose to use it in your study, note that the second half is the author's interpretation of these individual's lives. Which doesn't necessarily make it a bad thing, I viewed it as artistic expression & found it ...more

When most of us learn the Bible, or learn about the stories in the Gospels, women's stories and roles are either left out entirely or diminished, save for a very select few. This book goes into the stories of the women in the Bible in both the New and Old Testament, but in a very easy to read, easy to understand way. It also includes where to find their stories, since in many cases, there are brief mentions throughout multiple Gospels.

The book of names (the first half of the book) is excellent. It provides information on who the women are, where they are linked in the Bible, and their importance. The book of stories, however, is terrible. It is written in today's vernacular (slang and all) and riddled with typos. It was all I could do to finish the book. I DO NOT recommend it.

I give this 5 out of 5 because it is exactly what it is supposed to be. Here you'll find every single woman mentioned in the Holy Bible. I use this book for a reference a lot when I'm trying to remember who a certain person was. I read this book with my bible, reading about the woman and then going to the passage where she appeared.

Good read for bedtime devotions. I like the way the author imagines dialog and interactions of these women even though the Bible verses about them are brief. Good source for learning about women in the Bible from A to Z. Took me a long time to finish until I started reading a little bit each day for summer devotions.

I picked this up at a book fair that comes a few times a year to the building where I work and always sucks me in with good deals, particularly on educational children's books, but this time I found this book for myself too. The first half is in a dictionary format. The second half has stories. So far so good.

The beginning was interesting when it just listed the women in the Bible and what they were known for. The second half was when the author took that information from the Bible and tried to write a story about each woman. Sometimes the story worked, but often it wasn't well written.

The stories really give life to these women. However, there are many typographical errors, misspellings, and some grammatical errors. It is obvious to me that the proofreading was not of high quality.

The first part of the book, listing the women of the bible and their appearances in the bible, is okay.
The second part is crap!
