I read this book in a day. I could not put it down. Mr. MacArthur has an engaging writing style. What floored me most was how he was able to give more information on the prophetess Anna in the New Testament. When ever I read her part in Jesus' history I never paid much attention to her. I wondered how she lived but other than that I'd never thought of her. Mr. MacArthur paints such a wonderful portrait of her with the few simple verse she's in. As for how he approached Hannah, Samuel's Momma, he did the same thing. I never realized that Hannah and her husband had such a bond. He enabled me to see so clearly. I'm excited to read Twelve Ordinary Men, His book on Jesus' Disciples. If you are interested about woman in Old Testament and New Testament History this is a good book to read.
This is my first time reading a book by this author. For the most part the book was good but fell a bit short of my expectations in others, but overall was a good read. i will read another literature of this author again.
I love John MacArthur's writing and books. And for the most part, this one as well. But I think his choice to pass up putting Esther from the O.T. in the book and instead he put Anna from the N.T, I don't get it. I get why Anna was a great role model and a Godly woman for sure, but to leave out Esther with the thousands of lives she saved, and her own life in constant jeopardy.. sorry John, I think you goofed. It's still informative as he always is and worth the read.
