Product Description

Lynn Japinga's Preaching the Women of the Old Testament takes an in-depth look at over forty fierce, faithful, and strong women featured in the Old Testament. Inside this unique resource Japinga interprets the stories of various biblical women, including Eve, Rebekah, Dinah, Tamar, Miriam, Deborah, Jael, Abigail, Bathsheba, and Vashti. Along with providing an interpretation, she demonstrates how the character's story has been read in Christian tradition and offers sermon ideas that connect contemporary issues to each story. This book is ideal for pastors who want to know more about the many women of the Old Testament and learn how to better incorporate them into their sermons.

Editorial Reviews

"Telling the stories of the untold is a proclamatory act. The women of the Old Testament gain new life in Japinga's imagination and give us new life in how we view and interpret the Bible as the Word of the Lord. This book is indispensable for the preacher who is committed to discovering how God acts in those persons and stories that most would choose to overlook."</p>



—Karoline M. Lewis, The Marbury E. Anderson Chair of Biblical Preaching, Luther Seminary</p>


"<i>Preaching the Women of the Old Testament</i> is an engaging and accessible text that challenges popular readings of the Old Testament. Japinga engages characters who are often not given voice, and illuminates their struggles, joys, and journey. This is an incredible resource for both the church and the classroom."</p>



—Yolanda Norton, Assistant Professor of Old Testament, San Francisco Theological Seminary</p>
