From well-known women like Eve and Esther to those lesser known like Jochebed and Zipporah, women of the Bible play a vital role in God's timeless story of redemption.
This book traces the stories of three dozen of the most important women in Scripture, each handpicked by God to play a crucial part in his gracious plan for all humanity. Every chapter begins with a short biography followed by an explanation of how each woman fits into the overall narrative of the Gospel message, pointing to God's love for the individual as well as his larger plan to redeem sinners through the sending of his son. The Bible is the story of God's relationship with his people--men, women, Jews, Gentiles, saints, and sinners. But this book reveals that it's also the story of his relationship with you.
Aaron is the author of Everything the Bible Says About Parenting and Children and What Does God Say About That? Elaina writes and develops curriculum for ministries such as Cru. Aaron and Elaina Sharp live in Little Elm, Texas, with their three children.

Sweet and tangy, this lozenge soothes the throat. Although used for illness, it's tasty on its own, too.

Each of the 31 chapters separates into 5 different sections that analyzes each women from the Bible from a different perspective: Scripture References, Biography, Role in Redemption, By the Numbers, and Things We Wondered. The in-depth look at each of these women opens up a whole lot of questions for the reader.
I really loved getting to know these women in a more detailed way. This book would be ideal for a women's bible study or a month-long devotional. It's also a good starting point for your own research of each of these women.
tmurrellTNAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Thought provokingNovember 17, 2017tmurrellTNAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Bible is full of stories about women who changed the lives around them in profound ways. The authors has chosen 31 women that have amazing stories filled with love and faith. Each chapter begins with a quote that will tie in with the subject. The authors share the scriptures that they pulled the story from. Then they give a brief biography about the lady. The chapter ends with two sections - By the Numbers and Things We Wondered. The numbers section shares information such as how many children the leading lady had, how many miles to cities mentioned, how old she was, or other pertinent information. The last section is unanswered questions that reading about this lady brought to the author's minds.
I really enjoyed this book. It was well laid out, full of information, and well written. The writing flowed well and wasn't bogged down with the tiny details, since these were shared at the end. I loved the concept of pulling important women from the Bible and showcasing their role in history. This book would work well for a women's small group as well as for personal devotions.

joyful334209FLAge: 45-54Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5GOD knows all the womenNovember 10, 2017joyful334209FLAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4The Most Important Women of the Bible is magnificent. As a woman I couldn't wait for a book like this to come out to read up more on - the women in the Bible the good and the bad starting of course with Eve. It gives you the Scripture verses first to look up, then it gives you their biography and boy did they tell you a lot of information that I didn't know on some of these women. Then they tell you their role in redemption next after that the authors go into the "numbers" for instance for Eve they say "quote Bible verses that name Eve by name 4 " then they go into "things we Wonder " IE "what did Adam and Eve sew the fig leaves together with ?". Now isn't that awesome ? You should get this book, it is very interesting and worthwhile. I received a copy of this book from the Publisher and Netgalley; all the opinions expressed in this review are all my own.
Helen MAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Important Women in the BibleNovember 3, 2017Helen MAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Most Important Women of the Bible by Aaron and Elaina Sharp, focuses on 32 different women in the bible. It shows us the strength these women had to live in the time that they did. This book also tells us about the men in the women's lives and how they affected them, such as Tamar and Bathsheba.
The books is suggested to be used as a devotional or a Bible study, but I enjoyed reading it just to learn more about the women in the Bible. I like how the authors used only Bible scripture to give the reader the biography of each woman and then tells of her role in redemption. I also enjoy the little touches of humor the authors write into the book, such as wondering what Elizabeth's reaction was when Zechariah was not able to speak. I would recommend this book to anyone who longs to learn more about the women in the Bible.
I received a copy of this book from Bethany House. This is my honest review.

Aaron and Elaina look at a number of women who played a role in furthering along God's plan of redemption for humanity or who simply accepted the redemption that Jesus offered to them and then I'm sure they went on to make a difference in their world.
Women like Jochebed, who if she hadn't hid Moses, who would have led the Israelites out of Egypt? Zipporah who, with her quick thinking, saved Moses' life by circumcising one of their sons?
Rahab in protecting the spies?
The widow of Zarephath and her obedience and care for Elijah.
I'm not sure quite how all of the women they listed played a role in redemption, but they all had something to offer, something significant enough to be mentioned in the Bible, even if only a verse or two. Consider the Syrophoenician woman: we don't even know her name. Aaron and Elaina call her the believing beggar and that is appropriate. She is the one who went to Jesus pleading for her child's healing and Jesus seemed to treat with indifference and even rudeness. By saying he wasn't sent to anyone but the lost sheep of Israel and it wasn't right to take the children's bread and give it to the dogs. The woman was undeterred and had a comeback for Jesus, "Yes, Lord, yet even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters' table." Jesus went on to heal her daughter and to commend her for her faith. He was testing the woman to see how great her faith was and she passed with flying colors. The question is, would I have passed? I'm afraid not. I can see that I would have walked away with my tail between my legs, deeply offended. This is a good example to continue pursuing, continue pounding heaven's door even when everything seems silent.
I enjoyed the book. One thing that I will mention, it's a very small thing, but the back of the book says there are three dozen women discussed in the book. My math tells me that would be 36, but in reality there are only 31 chapter. Two chapters discuss two women, but that still brings the number up to only 33. It just sort of bugs me that there's that discrepancy. Like I said, it's minor and really doesn't take away from the book, but....
