This unique book presents the biographies of a number of women throughout history, showing how they lived out their courage through suffering and injustice, missions work, and loss. For example, Corrie ten Booms rescue efforts for the Jews during World War II speak of courage through suffering and injustice. Gladys Aylwards missions work in China depicts courage through fulfilling the Great Commission. Martha Washingtons response to the death of her first husband shows her courage even through a time of loss.
The book is divided into three sections, one for each type of courage. Each is given a brief introduction, which helps the reader identify with these historical women by comparing their trials with what women face today. Their stories are presented in a journalistic reporting style, featuring quotes, speeches, or writings by them that have affected peoples lives. Each chapter concludes with personal applications of the traits visible in the womans life.
The books glossy pages are restful to the eye. Beautiful color photographs of flowers and foliage fill the book with eye candy that complete the visage of beauty the book intends to paint. Each biography is preceded by a vibrant picture of a flower that is a symbol of the womans lifefor example, a roses lingering fragrance exemplifies the lingering effects of Rosa Parkss stand for equality. Though these examples add a colorful touch to the book, they do often seem vague and far-reaching. The traits of hidden beauty and lingering fragrance could apply to the lives of any of the women in the book. However, the biographies are powerful.
In Joshua 1:9, God said to Joshua, Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. Readers of this book will find encouragement and inspiration from courageous women who used the resources they had and were willing to give everything up even in the face of overwhelming obstacles; women who spoke out against injustice, upheld under extreme persecution, and brought others to the Kingdom. -- Lyndi Markus, ChristianBookPreviews.com
