This book was a huge blessing and was given to me right when I needed it most. I haven't actually returned it to the right place of the shelf because I keep rereading sections. Unlike a lot of books today, this book chose to focus on what these women did right. I get tired of the books that focus of their failures. I highly recommend this book.

On the whole, it is focused on the "remarkable" women rather than making much of our remarkable God. Disappointing and rather shallow.

As a new wife I cute my teeth, spiritually speaking, on the writing of Elizabeth George. For several years I read book after book by her and grew immensely in my understanding and application of the Bible and therefore have a high respect for this godly woman. Once again, in The Remarkable Women of the Bible, she digs into God's Word to help us better understand the many stories in Scripture. I enjoyed being challenged to pull apart the story and cross reference to learn as much from each event ...more

Doubt see the obstacles. Faith sees the way.
Doubt sees the darkest night. Faith sees the day.
Doubt dreads to take a step. Faith soars on high.
Doubt questions, "Who believes?" Faith answers, "I."

My favourite part of the book were the poems. And I don't even like poems!! I appreciated the food for thought provided by the learning points from the different character but wish there could have been more background and insight into each character. Was deciding between this and Women of the Bible for c

I feel bad giving it 3 stars but I did "like it" and not "really like it" so there you have it. It took me FOREVER to read this book because I would just read one chapter every few weeks. I enjoyed learning about women in the Bible since I knew very little about any of them. If you're wanting to learn more about women in the Bible, this is a good book to read.

I think this book is absolutely great for any woman to read. My favourite point was in the first chapter regarding Eve. Eve had a lot of things happen to her (her son became a murderer, her other son was murdered etc.) and she had absolutely no one to go to to talk to. She only had her husband and God. This is a great encouragement for me.

I loved this book. It gave great insight to not only to the more well known women of the Bible but also the lesser known ones. It created in me the an desire to learn more about the women I don't know much about.

A deep study on the marvelous lives of women which God chose to use throughout history. This book presents the lives and choices of women that were figuring out life, but also the One which is God.

I enjoyed the women she wrote about. She gave excellent views of their lives and ways we can learn from even some of their mistakes. Any book by Elizabeth George is worth owning!

I really enjoyed this commentary. It is a good introduction to stories you may not hear about often in church. It made me break out my Bible and look them up!
