Product Description

Many women impacted upon the life of Moses. The woman who bore him, the young girl who shadowed him, and the foreigner who raised him are just three of the key influencers on his life. Their actions meant that a Hebrew child was reared as a prince of Egypt and became one of the greatest leaders of all time. Each woman who influenced the life of Moses was guided by God to bring his plans to pass. As you read about their lives you will discover the unique role women have to be mightily used of God too.

We are off to the land of Egypt by means of Dorothy Kelley Patterson's book, Touched by Greatness. It is commonly known that Moses was a great leader, but what is often overlooked is the godly influence of the women surrounding him. Patterson awakens the lives of the women dearest to Moses, who are oftentimes underplayed in Scripture.

Patterson's short, engaging devotions are packed with interesting facts backed by Scripture, along with a short prayer at the end. She walks readers through the lives of Moses' mother, sister, adoptive mother, and others. Readers learn about and are motivated by the inspiring lives of the women around this famous leader of the Israelites.

Through Patterson's devotional, readers can learn how to be great mothers, amazing leaders, and wonderful women of God. Whereas her writing is interesting, it is often hard to focus when she repeats herself. On the journey from Egypt to the Promised Land, readers discover exciting new nuggets of information which are only briefly covered in Scripture. For instance, Moses’ first wife was named Zipporah. Geneses 17:14 says, "Any uncircumcised male who has not been circumcised in the flesh will be cut off from his people; he has broken my covenant." Although Moses knew God’s command, he disobeyed and it was only by Zipporah's brave intervention that he was not separated from God.

Although the book's material was fascinating, Patterson's presentation was not particularly reader-friendly. The lengthy sentences made it difficult not only to read but also to understand. As a reader, I often found myself having to reread a sentence. Then I had to fight my way through all the exclamation points in order to understand the meaning of the devotional. While it is good to have the occasional exciting punctuation in writing, over-usage of exciting punctuation often leaves the reader feeling lost or as if Patterson was yelling at her.

Overall, Touched by Greatness is an interesting devotional that will uplift and encourage mothers of all ages. I would recommend this book to women who are looking for inspiration in their own life or are searching for a better understanding of the women in Exodus. – Anna Williams, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

Editorial Reviews

"Dorothy Patterson speaks to the very heart of women. In this insightful book you will find a kindred spirit."
"Dorothy Patterson helps us understand what it was to be a woman touched by the visionary, creative, and courageous life of Moses."
"this prolific author and woman of God has crafted an excellent resource for Bible study and personal enrichment."
"The vignettes encourage, edify, challenge, and motivate women of all ages, regardless of their giftedness or social status, to offer themselves as vessels to be used to glorify their heavenly Father."
"Dorothy Patterson is one of the most engaging teachers I have ever had the privilege to sit under. As she writes this new book Touched by Greatness, she once again has captured the student's heart and mind with her approach to the women in the life of Moses. Not only does she teach the scriptural text, she includes history, quotations, illustrations, interesting facts surrounding the woman, and even a teaching outline to make it so practical for anyone to use this to teach others. This will be one book all women will want to read and then share."
"Dr. Dorothy Patterson presents deep Biblical insights and unchanging principles pertinent to the 21st century woman."
"Touched by Greatness is a book that will inspire, challenge and encourage women to be more Christ-like in their everyday lives. This book will help women understand the importance of their unique and meaningful roles -- even when the world does not take note or reward their efforts. Dr. Patterson's wisdom makes clear that whatever we do for Christ -- whether in a major role or one in the background in service to others -- will last and count for eternity."
"This is one of the best books on women I have ever read! It is thoroughly engaging, practically enriching and extremely relevant for women today."
"Behind every great man . . . are many influential women! Dorothy Patterson's book illustrates that truth through an insightful look at the women in the life of Moses. I enthusiastically recommend Touched by Greatness."
"This extensive and eloquently written work tells the inspirational stories of women who overcame major challenges and setbacks allowing God to do the work He intended through the life of Moses. Without these women who were willing to go against the norm to protect and preserve family, Moses would not have lived to accomplish what God intended. It is absolutely one of the most fascinating books written about the significance mothers and women play in family life."
"Dorothy Patterson reveals the creativity of God in working through women in a variety of circumstances to prepare this man of God. Every woman will perceive in these examples the potential to be used by God to influence and change another life. With a foundation of careful exegesis, readers are challenged to apply these lessons of sacrifice and courage in the context of daily decisions to influence another generation."
"She masterfully imparts historical insights, inspiration, and instruction for women desiring to grow in wisdom serving the Lord Jesus Christ while interacting with those around them, great or small"
"From the intensely important roles of his mother, wives, and sister, to the small, unnamed players in this drama, each woman's involvement in Moses' life shaped a man called by God."
"Dr. Dorothy Patterson's thought-provoking book chronicles God's carefully crafted plan to shape the life of Moses though the women who influenced his life. Women everywhere will be inspired to be women of influence as they observe the examples of Jochebed, Miriam, and even the more obscure women who played their part in God's redemption story for the nation Israel."
"Mrs. Patterson shares insights from several lifelong passions-in depth Bible study, observation of the role and high value of women in society and family, and the history of God's people, Israel especially during Moses' leadership. "
