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.
Edith Deen (1905–1994) was the bestselling author of All of the Women of the Bible, Great Women of the Christian Faith, Family Living in the Bible, The Bible's Legacy for Womanhood, and All the Bible's Men of Hope. Five of her books were Christian Herald Family Bookshelf selections, and her six books, published in several editions and many languages, have sold over two million copies.

MeLisa5 Stars Out Of 5August 19, 2008MeLisaThis 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.

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.
