This study deals with contemporary female issues: singleness, sanctity of life, infertility, caring for aging parents, materialism, and the role of women in marriage and ministry. Each lesson begins with a study of a real woman whose life portrays contemporary issues: the Samaritan women, Mary, Martha, Sarah, Abigail, Hannah, Ruth, Naomi, and others. The final chapter deals with women in the New Testament church who ministered through spiritual gifts. 8 lessons included, from Harold Shaw Publishers.

Publisher's Description

Contemporary women face numerous challenging and often painful issues, including infertility, caring for aging parents, singleness, the generation gap, the role of women in marriage and ministry, materialism, and difficult marriages. We're not alone. All of these issues were faced by women in the Bible, and it's God's desire that we learn from, and find encouragement in, their stories. Learn how you can make a difference in your family, your church, and your community by studying the examples of scriptural women who in so many ways were just like us.

Editorial Reviews

"Women Like Us is an inspiring study guide rich with wisdom, insight, and hope from the lives of Sarah, Hannah, Deborah, Naomi, and other prominent women of the bible. As wives, mothers, friends, adult children, and citizens, they were 'just like us.' This easy-to-use guide offers women of today an opportunity to learn from their decisions and choices--even from the mistakes."

--Karen O'Connor, author of Basket of Blessings and Squeeze the Moment

    Our Ladies have enjoyed this study. It is a fresh look at Biblical relationships involving current women's issues - all of which are really good topics. A few of the studies had some inflammatory questions; asking for personal opinion on controversial topics. In at least once instance the scripture used as reference was not in context and seem to only be included to generate heated discussion. I am not one to shy away from difficult topics but I just didn't like the way some of the questions were asked - so we skipped them and had a lovely study.

    We did this in our women's Bible study group, and it really brought about a lot of good discussion. A lot of the stories we had studied before, but a lot of the questions made us think. We really enjoyed it! :-)
