Publisher's Description

They didn’t get as much ink—but they contributed amazing things to the history of God’s people. Learn all about them in Women of the Bible, a brand-new, illustrated reference book from Barbour Publishing. Covering women’s roles and jobs, daily experiences, and interactions with Bible men, this book brings clarity to some of the strange, confusing, and forgotten stories of scripture. Also featuring lists of every named woman of scripture and most of the unnamed females, Women of the Bible is fully illustrated in color. It’s “readable reference,” equally helpful for study or pleasure.

Editorial Reviews

In this newest book one not only learns about the named and un-named women but also a little about the history of women from the beginning , their daily experiences, their roles and jobs there interaction with men...Filled with some beautiful photos and art work , I feel this is a book that will be enjoyed and read by many women, a book that would be great for a women’s bible study.

Stories of strong women were portrayed very vividly in this visual guide, and I enjoyed this visual guide a lot. It doesn't feel as if I was reading something related to the bible, but I felt as if I was going though an in depth case study about the women in the bible.



Thumbs up for this book, and if I were to rate it, I'd give it a gleaming 5 stars.


Overall, I'd recommend this book to those wanting to know more about the women in the Bible with the bonus of getting an overview look at what their lives were like.

Great layout and easy to read.  I highly recommend this book and plan on ordering a copy for myself.
