Summary

Throughout history, countless women have boldly stepped out in faith and courage, leaving their indelible mark on those around them and on the kingdom of God. In lively prose, Michelle DeRusha tells their stories, bringing into focus 50 incredible heroines of the faith. From Catherine of Siena, Teresa of Avila, and Anne Hutchison, to Susanna Wesley, Harriet Tubman, and Corrie ten Boom, women both famous and admirable live again under DeRusha's expert pen. These engaging narratives are a potent reminder to listeners that we are not alone, the battles we face today are not new, and God is always with us in the midst of the struggle.

Real Women Doing the Extraordinary

These stories of women of faith contain people of vast differences united in Jesus. It was encouraging to learn that the giants of faith suffered depression and doubt but overcame.

Inspiring

DeRusha does an excellent job of highlighting the lives of inspirational women of faith. The work is well-written and fast paced yet thorough enough to give the listener a comprehensive view of the lives of 50 remarkable women.

Not quite what I expected.

Based on what I was expecting I would rate this book low on my scale.
