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.

By Toni Whitacre Kratochvil 2009 This book will provide some guidance as to what a virtuous woman is. Toni Whitacre-Kratochvil has brought the understanding of what it is to be a virtuous woman by using examples of women in the Bible both good and bad along side of the verses in Proverbs 31. In this way, you will have a gauge to measure where you are on that scale. Most women are not wholly good or wholly bad, but somewhere in the middle. Come take a seat in this class to learn more about what a virtuous woman is, and how you can become a more virtuous woman yourself.
Reading the Women of the Bible takes up two of the most significant intellectual and religious issues of our day: the experiences of women in a patriarchal society and the relevance of the Bible to modern life.
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 take off from the Workers of the World, Unite!, a la Marx and Engels (The Communist Manifesto), the author looks at what that saying would be given the metaphysical reality of man and woman balance. Author Bio: Christopher Alan Anderson (1950 - ) received the basis of his education from the University of Science and Philosophy, Swannanoa, Waynesboro, Virginia. He resides in the transcendental/romantic tradition, that vein of spiritual creativity of the philosopher and poet. His quest has been to define and express an eternal romantic reality from which a man and a woman could together stand in their difference and create a living universe of procreative love. Mr. Anderson began these writings in 1971. The first writings were published in 1985. On a personal note, when Mr. Anderson was asked to describe the writings and what he felt their message was he responded, "Spiritual procreation. Mankind has yet to distinguish the two sexes on the spiritual level. In this failure lies the root of our problems and why we cannot yet touch the eternal together. The message of man and woman balance brings each of us together in love with our eternal other half right now." Keywords: Man and Woman Balance, Relationships, Procreation, Spirituality, Love, Metaphysics, Eternal, Creation, Sexuality, & Soul.

The Bible is filled with women of faith, bravery, and cunning. Here is one woman’s tale—as it might have happened . . . “Blessed above women shall Jael the wife of Heber the Kenite be, Blessed shall she be above women in the tent.” Judges 5:24” Like many a bride-to-be, Jael looks forward to a long, loving marriage. But when her husband, Heber, takes her home to live in the company of his other wife and concubine, Jael’s dreams begin to crumble. The women in her tent warn Jael that, to bear Heber the sons he demands, she will have to risk shame, betrayal of her vows, even possible execution. But in the darkest moment of her life, there sparks a flame: a young warrior named Levi enters her life—and Jael is presented with a life-changing decision, one that will affect the fate of all the people of Israel. Now there’s no turning back on the path that will lead her to change history—by doing the unthinkable. “Terrific biblical biographical fiction, the genesis of a new series.”—Midwest Book Review
Though we often focus more on the male heroes and villains in the Bible, the pages of Scripture are brimming with women who are edgy, strong willed, and controversial. Far from the stereotype of sweet and submissive, many women of the Bible steal the show despite being cast in the supporting roles. What parts did these women have in the vast family of God? What challenges did they face that we face even today? And what can we learn from them if we allow them to be the three-dimensional people they really were? In Dynamic Women of the Bible, the lives of more than fifty biblical women are summoned from their graves to live again by the author who brought you The Biographical Bible. Scripture references, biographical profiles, sidebars (featuring twenty additional women of the Bible), discussion questions, and life applications make this book perfect for small groups, Bible studies, book clubs, and personal reading.
Is the tribulation really seven years in length? Can we know when the last days have actually begun? Is there a rapture of the Church, and if so, can we know its timing in relation to other events of the last days? Can everyone, including Christians, know who the Antichrist is? Is the world going to end in the year 2012? Find out what the Bible actually has to say the answers really are, as these and other questions are addressed in Signposts of the Last Days.
Sarah, Hagar, Rebekah, Rachel, and Leah are women often condemned to be only the shadow of their male opposite numbers. However, each one of them had a privileged role, often a decisive role, in the formation of the people of God. Their place was not only in the bosom of their family, but also at the heart of Israel's history. God chose them as full-time partners in the work of salvation. In this little book Christianne Meroz proposes to recount these women's lives of passion and rivalry, hopes and deceptions, faithfulness and freedom. Not a biblical commentary, this work is a sensitive and tender narrative that, with the sometimes surprising enlightenment provided by traditions of the Jewish and Islamic communities of faith, furnishes us with highly textured portraits of these women. It is a narrative in which we develop a quick sympathy for these free women whose names begin practically to dance in our hearts.
There are two kinds of shame. Legitimate shame is a tool in the hands of a forgiving God; we feel it when we recognize our sin and turn to Him. False shame, on the other hand, is a tool in the hands of the enemy; Satan uses it to convince believers that they are not worthy of God's love and acceptance, and to turn them away from fellowship with Him. In From Shame to Beauty, readers will discover how to arm themselves against false shame and live confidently in the knowledge of God's love. This interactive study, ideal for individuals or small groups, guides readers through a process of healing from false shame that has plagued their lives and relationships. From Shame to Beauty features eight topical studies. Topics include "Characteristics of Shame," "Cause of Shame," "Contagion of Shame," "Cure for Shame," and more. Each week's study examines how false shame threatens the lives of believers, digs into Scripture to find out what God's Word has to say about it, offers readers the opportunity to reflect on their own struggle with shame, and suggests practical action steps to help readers apply what they have learned.
After 17 years of marriage, three beautiful children, and a full-time ministry, it became harder and harder for me to be involved in the day-to-day aspects of full-time ministry. I began to seek alternative ways to continue to reach out to women without being physically at church, and at my husband's prompting, I begin writing a blog called "It's all about Him". These posts are not big miraculous happenings, but are words of encouragement and strength highlighting simple, everyday life lessons, some funny, some scary, some serious, but all real and fulfilling. Through these simple experiences, I have learned that life is what you make it. This book was literally pushed into existence by the women who have been extraordinarily blessed by the blog. Hopefully, you will laugh a little, relate a little, and at the end of the day, come to realize that it's really all about Him.
