Publisher's Description

In this highly anticipated follow-up to the enormously successful Seven MenNew York Times bestselling author Eric Metaxas gives us seven captivating portraits of some of history’s greatest women, each of whom changed the course of history by following God’s call upon their livesnow in paperback. 

Each of the world-changing figures who stride across these pages—Joan of Arc, Susanna Wesley, Hannah More, Sister Maria of Paris, Corrie ten Boom, Rosa Parks, and Mother Teresa—is an exemplary model of true womanhood. Teenaged Joan of Arc followed God’s call and liberated her country, dying a heroic martyr’s death. Susanna Wesley had nineteen children and gave the world its most significant evangelist and its greatest hymn writer, her sons John and Charles. Corrie ten Boom, arrested for hiding Dutch Jews from the Nazis, survived the horrors of a concentration camp to astonish the world by forgiving her tormentors. And Rosa Parks’s deep sense of justice and unshakable dignity and faith helped launch the twentieth-century’s greatest social movement.

Writing in his trademark conversational and engaging style, Eric Metaxas reveals how the extraordinary women profiled here achieved their greatness, inspiring readers to lives guided by a call beyond themselves.

    Erik Metaxis writes like someone sitting and telling you a story. The women in this book are fascinating; some I knew and some I didn't. Each woman's story is in a manageable one-sitting session. Good to curl up with at the fireplace.

    Eric begins this book with an introduction that is well worth the read. He explains why each woman was chosen and defines true godly womanhood.

    He chose women we have all heard about, but perhaps dont know their whole story. Each woman is a unique study. I had a hard time putting the book down until I had finished each short biography. And I wanted to pick it up and discover about the next woman. They are humble, obedient, woman who gave much, if not their entire lives to accomplishing what they had been called to do. These women were forces to be reckoned with.

    I knew very little about some of them, but gained an appreciation for their bravery and commitment to the Lord. They are Joan of Arc, Susanna Wesley, Hannah More, Saint Maria of Paris, Corrie ten Boom, Rosa Parks, and Mother Teresa. Ordinary women, changed by the Lord.

    One woman I particularly enjoyed reading about was the very feisty Mother Teresa. She never hesitated to ask for what was necessary, whether it be moving some boxes of supplies or offering to work for an airline in order to fly free to a speaking engagement. Mother Theresa was often heard asking Would you like to do something beautiful for God?

    Read about them all or just pick a few. This is an extremely readable book and you will find yourself energized to carry out your own calling and do something beautiful for God.

    Eric Metaxas is a master writer of my favourite genre of books biographies. I could easily enjoy a pleasant weekend wrapped up in stories well told. My personal library is well stocked with biographies of accomplished athletes, Civil War generals, politicians, missionaries, innovators and entrepreneurs.

    Metaxas says biographies enable us to slip the strictures of time and provide a bracing corrective to our tendency to see everything in the dark glass of our own era, with all its blind spots, mores, beams and distortions.

    Its with that value in mind that Metaxas recounts heroes of faith and gives us condensed biographies of their lives that, while short, feel remarkably comprehensive.

    7 Women And The Secret Of Their Greatness is his latest pageturner. The women highlighted include Joan of Arc, Suzanna Wesley, Hannah More, Maria Skobtsova, Corrie ten Boom, Mother Teresa, and Rosa Parks.

    Id never heard of Hannah More or Maria Skobtsova and my library shelves were empty of books about the other five. Im grateful to Metaxas for introducing me to seven new heroes of faith. You wont regret an investment in a personal copy of the book.

    My wife Jocelyn read 7 Women and was quick to loan it to her friends and have it stocked in our churchs bookstore. Here's why...

    Jocelyns 5 Takeways

    1. Ordinary women can be used in extraordinary ways by God. The focus is on ordinary not women. I know ordinary women named Joan, Suzanna, Hannah, Maria, Corrie, Teresa and Rosa. What inspires me is that anyone can see God use their circumstances as a platform for courage when they are abandoned completely to God.7 women book

    2. These seven women changed the course of history. They didnt set out to be worldchangers theirs was a courageous response to the threats facing their communities and countries.

    3. They all understood that serving God meant selflessly serving people. Their gospel was simple love others with the love of Jesus. Love made the difference.

    4. The Holy Spirit worked in radically profound ways through their lives. Some lived in such intense ways that their testimony and integrity was called into question. History has proven each of them to be of the highest moral, ethical and religious quality.

    5. Each woman faced hardships and complicated situations, yet they knew God was with them. They lived by an unwavering and uncomplaining faith despite the price they each paid in their cause.

    This review was written for 7 Women and the Secret of Their Greatness.
    What does a warrior, a rights activist and a nun has in common? Answer: They can all be accomplished by a woman. Biographies on women are far and few between. This is why Im glad Eric Metaxas has written this book highlighting the lives of several accomplished women.

    Some of the women in the book mentioned in the book will probably be known by many, other will probably be new to readers. What makes their lives remarkable is how they were able to showcase their lives for Christ.

    Metaxas writes in a very engaging manner giving a chapter summary of each of the women in his book. If youre new to these people, you will definitely find this book to be an extremely helpful introduction to their lives. What I liked about why Metaxas has written about these people is the fact that he recognises the fact that what makes these women great is not about whether they were able to achieve or out-do what men had already achieved. Rather he wants to write about what women has excel in by their very own identity.

    For example, on his chapter on Susanna Wesley, Metaxas reminds readers that Susanna Wesleys greatness lies in the fact that she was a superb mother who single-handedly had to raise a large family, providing, caring and discipling them and every one of them. This teaches readers that to be a great woman does not mean you have to perform as well as a man, rather you are to be excellent at the identity that God has given to you.

    Ive enjoyed the book, but one drawback of the book is that the comments by Metaxas is rather short. No doubt Metaxas does indicate his opinions throughout the book, if his concluding paragraphs for each chapter was slightly longer it would be excellent. Metaxas does a good job at highlighting the important contribution of each women, I only wish he could have written a more elaborated piece on each of them.

    All in all an easy to read book, informative and engaging. If youre a woman and want to know about what makes this women great, then you should read about them in this book.
