I'm using this book for a one-on-one Bible study. We are into the 4th week and we have learned so much about GOD'S MERCY AND GRACE. These were extraordinary women because of His mercy and grace. I respect John MacArthur so much and he helps us to know the cultures of the times these women lived, which is so very helpful. He helps us to remember that no person is beyond redemption if they will turn to Him in faith! We serve an amazing God and He has made me an extraordinary woman by His grace, mercy, and forgiveness!
I AM pleased, overall, with the book...and I really love this author and his writings. I just wish he had added MORE women of the Bible to this. It only covers 11 of the women in the Bible. I think at least a little could be said about the rest of them. Many that I was hoping to read more about are not even talked about in the book at all. Quality is fine, and it is well written and laid out...well organized. Wonderful author....you just cannot go wrong for this low price on this book. I guess I can most likely find the info on the other women from another source.
This book is a definite must read! The author opens up the Bible with his descriptions and releases these women's lives to us in a way that we may otherwise not see. Looking forward to reading his book about the disciples.
My wife who is already amazing and one of the greatest blessing ever in my life...all on her own decided to start a ladies bible study group. She started out on their first study with three other women (women who were in new marriages and needing encouragement), and they asked when they finished up if Sarah (my wife) would lead another study (whatever she wanted to pick) and that they had some other ladies they wanted to invite. Well this is the study, "Twelve Extraordinary Women" that Sarah picked and there are now eight (my favorite number) ladies wanting to become The Fathers Extraordinary Women. Thanks for reasonably pricing such great resources.
