Publisher's Description

All the women of the Bible offers a rich biographical perspective on evey female figure in scripture -- including the famous, the little-known, and even the unnamed. In more that 300 engaging and insightful portraits, Edith Deen brings alive the saints and sorceresses, queens and servants, mothers and daughters, wives and widows whose profound influence is felt through-out the Bible.

"You can almost trace light and darkness in the Bible by the women themselves,"she writes. "Hannah, praying mother of Samuel, gave birth to a son who became the first great Hebrew prophet. And, of course, there was the mother of Jesus. On the other hand, Jezebel and Herodias were vile influences, the first tearing apart the northern kingdom of Israel, the second causing John the Baptist to be beheaded."

Combining thorough detail with a lively and dramatic narrative, All of the Women of the Bible portrays the real women behind the Biblical stories and shows how, in their human struggles and triumphs, they are very much like the women of today. With each major biography identified by Bible chapter and verse and prefaced by a key passage of scripture, this is an ideal resources for teachers, Bible students, preachers, and writers, as well as anyone who wants to learn what it was really like to be a woman in Biblical times.

    This review was written for All of the Women of the Bible.
    This by far was one of the most comprehensive and outstanding books of "Women of the Bible" I've ever read. The fact that this book is listed in the reference list in many of the other books regarding the subject is a testament. Literally, EVERY woman is covered.

    The book is great reading. I purchased the book to assist me with a speech that I was preparing for Women's Day at Church.The book provided all of the information that I needed to compose a twenty minute speech. There was no need to do further research.

    I have been checking this book out from the library for years. I was so glad to see it was still in print. It is a great book!!! You won't be disappointed.

    I have been using this text for a neighborhood Bible study and we find the descriptions fascinating. Some of them could have had a little more background, but, for a book which was published quite a few years ago it is very well done.
