Celebrated for their courage, vision, hospitality, and spiritual giftedness, it's no wonder women were so important to God's place revealed in the Old and New Testaments. It wasn't their natural qualities that made these women extraordinary but the power of the one true God whom they worshipped and served. Their struggles and temptations are the same trials faced by all believers at all ages.
In Twelve Extraordinary Women by John MacArthur, you'll learn more than fascinating information about these women, you'll discover--perhaps for the first time--the unmistakable chronology of God's redemptive work in history through their lives. These women were not ancillary to His plan, they were at the very heart of it. And this book includes their amazing stories.
The twelve women studied in this book are Eve (Genesis 3:20), Sarah (Genesis 11-25), Rahab (Matthew 1:5-6), Ruth (Ruth 1-4), Hannah (1 Samuel 1-2), Mary, the mother of Jesus (Luke 1-2), Anna (Luke 2:36-38), The Samaritan woman (John 4), Martha and Mary (Luke 10:38-42), Mary Magdalene (Matthew 27:56-61), and Lydia (Acts 16:14).
This edition includes a Study Guide for group discussion.

They were ordinary, common, and in some cases shockingly low-caste, yet each was made extraordinary by her life-changing encounter with God.
Readers will be challenged and motivated by Twelve Extraordinary Women, a poignant and personal look into the lives of some of the Bible's most faithful women. Their struggles and temptations are the same trials faced by all believers at all ages. Inside this book, best-selling author and Bible teacher John MacArthur shows that the God to whom they were so committed is the same God who continues to mold and use ordinary people today.
John MacArthur has served as the pastor-teacher of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, since 1969. His ministry of expository preaching is unparalleled in its breadth and influence. In more than four decades of ministry from the same pulpit, he has preached verse by verse through the entire New Testament (and several key sections of the Old Testament). He is president of the Masters University and Seminary and can be heard daily on the Grace to You radio broadcast (carried on hundreds of radio stations worldwide). He has authored a number of bestselling books, including Twelve Ordinary Men, and One Perfect Life.

tulippoplar1 Stars Out Of 5huge disappointment... save your moneySeptember 21, 2017tulippoplarQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0This book is great.... until you get to the women of the New Testament. I read through the women of the Old Testament and felt empowered by what he was saying... his chapters on Eve and Sarah are particularly beautiful (although I wish he would have included some citations for some of his statements); however, I found it odd that he failed to include Deborah - certainly an extraordinary woman of the Bible/ Old Testament. Then I got to his chapter on Mary, or what should have been more appropriately titled MacCarthur's refutation of Catholicism. Nevertheless, I continued to read on, excusing his diatribe, and welcomed the next chapter on Anna - despite her brief appearance, one of my favorite people in the New Testament. It was after I read this chapter that I realized MacCarthur's bias. This chapter's focus was on diminishing any sort of spiritual leadership or insight this WOMAN had. The Bible describes her as a "prophetess" yet MacCarthur reduces this away to changing the definition to devoutly religious and that the only way she had the revelation that baby Jesus was the Messiah was because she "overheard Simeon" ... in fact MacCarthur goes so far to say no woman has had direct prophetic revelation - a bold and erroneous statement! At this point I stopped and realized that MacCarthur has a very distinct yet warped view of women and I immediately understood why Deborah was excluded. Do not waste your time with this book. Perhaps MacCarthur should be reminded of a particular verse: "There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, NOR IS THERE MALE AND FEMALE, for you are all one in Christ Jesus." Instead I think he focuses on a couple verses that Paul wrote to a specific audience ... and he does so out of context.
