Dr. Herbert Lockyer provides a convenient commentary on all the named and unnamed women of the Bible from Abi to Zipporah.
All the women of the Bible offers a rich biographical perspective on evey female figure in scripture -- including the famous, the little-known, and even the unnamed. In more that 300 engaging and insightful portraits, Edith Deen brings alive the saints and sorceresses, queens and servants, mothers and daughters, wives and widows whose profound influence is felt through-out the Bible. "You can almost trace light and darkness in the Bible by the women themselves,"she writes. "Hannah, praying mother of Samuel, gave birth to a son who became the first great Hebrew prophet. And, of course, there was the mother of Jesus. On the other hand, Jezebel and Herodias were vile influences, the first tearing apart the northern kingdom of Israel, the second causing John the Baptist to be beheaded." Combining thorough detail with a lively and dramatic narrative, All of the Women of the Bible portrays the real women behind the Biblical stories and shows how, in their human struggles and triumphs, they are very much like the women of today. With each major biography identified by Bible chapter and verse and prefaced by a key passage of scripture, this is an ideal resources for teachers, Bible students, preachers, and writers, as well as anyone who wants to learn what it was really like to be a woman in Biblical times.
The Bible contains more than three thousand named men, all of whom are dealt with in this book. The many thousands of unnamed men are also classified. Included in the book is a guide to the pronunciation of names.
Good, bad or Desperate? We all have been there at some point of our lives. In her first book, My Father In Heaven, My Father On Earth, Sandra openly shared moments of her life when she was bad & desperate and finally declared righteous by the grace of God.

In this study, Sandra, with her warm, genuine style directs our focus not to the women, but to a good God who is faithful in all circumstances of life. Though Bible times have changed, our Eternal God has not, and because of this we learn and grow from the women in the Bible. Do we really differ from these women in the Bible?

Available here for the first time in paperback, Women in Scripture is a landmark one-volume reference work exploring all the women mentioned in the Bible, named and unnamed, well known and heretofore not known at all. The book comprises more than 800 articles, written by the finest scholars in the field, that examine the numerous women who have often been obscured by the androcentric nature of the biblical record and by centuries of translation and interpretation that have paid little or no attention to them. The women of scripture are remarkably varied--from prophets to prostitutes, military heroines to musicians, deacons to dancers, widows to wet nurses, rulers to slaves. Here are familiar faces, such as Eve, Judith, and Mary, seen anew with the full benefit of the most up-to-date biblical scholarship. But the most innovative aspect of the book is the section devoted to the many women who in the scriptures do not even have names. In both scope and accessibility, Women in Scripture is an exceptional work. Combining rigorous scholarship with engaging prose, these articles on women in the Hebrew Bible, the Apocryphal/Deuterocanonical books, and the New Testament will inform, delight, and challenge all readers interested in the Bible.

Get wisdom, get understanding ... Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. -- Proverbs 4:5-7 In this new edition of a classic of women's Bible study, beloved Christian author Edith Deen brings to life the stories of more than fifty biblical women and shows the lessons contemporary women can learn from each one. The culmination of a quarter century of study, Wisdom from Women in the Bible provides firsthand insight on how the women of the Bible dealt with both the everyday topics of marriage, home, possessions, children, and widowhood; and the eternal themes of spiritual awareness, love, worship, and faith. Represented here are the women whose wisdom shines like a beacon down through the ages: Mary, Ruth, Esther, and Deborah. But we can also learn from the wicked and the foolish -- Eve, Delilah, Jezebel, and Lot's wife -- the ones whose faults lead all too often to destruction. In engaging and perceptive portraits, Deen reintroduces us to women who reflect our own weaknesses and potential for greatness, our petty jealousies and soaring prayers. She then applies each story to modern life, firmly outlining its meaning for our time. The result is a book both classic and contemporary, inspirational and practical. "So I send this book forth with the hope that it will inspire a deeper study of the Bible and that it will help others gain a new wisdom and understanding in handling their daily problems. This is one of the wonders of the Bible. Any theme one chooses turns out to be contemporary." -- from the Preface

As a minister, I am excited to have access to a Bible Study that hits the mark of truth for women who desire to live within our society with confidence of who they are. Establishing a firm spiritual foundation is vital in our unstable world. A Woman of Substance affords an outline upon which to build that foundation, providing a breadth of Biblical teaching that allows deep spiritual growth. In this practical step-by-step study, a woman's beauty is revealed to be deeper than the surface of her skin. Each reader will be able to glean from these practical teachings through clever analogies of everyday applications that will help build her thoughts and boundaries which will stand against any manner of adversity. She will also be able to identify other women of substance and appreciate how they influence the lives of those around them.' -Laura McCullough Co-Founder, Church for Now Boise, Idaho Author Sheila Eismann has ministered to women for over twenty years through leading various small groups and speaking at women's events.
