Rebecca5 Stars Out Of 5Great book about women from the BibleJanuary 9, 2019RebeccaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I'm just over halfway through this book, and I love how the author expands on each of these women and gives a better context of what it was like for them. The chapters seem a little long, but they're really interesting.

Steelfaith5 Stars Out Of 5Part of a TrilogyMarch 31, 2018SteelfaithQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5As always, Dr.John MacArthur's ability to shed light on Scripture and to enlighten us with his understanding is unmatched. Twelve Extraordinary Woman is no exception. An in depth character study of twelve of the most wonderful women in the Bible which breathes life into them like never before.
This is a great book but it is a part of a trilogy of great books which include Twelve Unlikely Heroes and Twelve Ordinary Men. I was reading some of the reviews posted for Twelve Extraordinary Women prior to writing my own review and noticed some were disappointed by the lack of Esther in this volume and someone even had the nerve to say how Dr.MacArthur goofed by not including her.
The reason that Esther is not featured in this wonderful book is because she has a whole chapter devoted to her in Twelve Unlikely Heroes, which follows the exact same premise as this volume, giving 12 in depth character studies of various Biblical personalities who were unlikely heroes. Indeed, Esther was an extraordinary woman but even more than that, she was an unlikely hero for literally all the Jewish people living at the time.
My suggestion to everyone would be to not only buy and enjoy this wonderful book but to get the entire trilogy. All three books are fantastic reads and well worth your time, especially with Christianbook's fantastic prices!
All three books easily get 5 stars!
Mills5 Stars Out Of 512 Extraordinary WomenMarch 29, 2018MillsQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4We tend to forget the extraordinary help Jesus was given in his ministry by women. In this era of equal rights, Dr. MacArthur shows us how the Lord treated all equal in their service to Christ.
Barb5 Stars Out Of 5The title helped me to find the exact type of study I was looking for.November 9, 2017BarbQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I am doing a Bible study with a new Christian who has no Biblical knowledge. This is an excellent study in helping her become familiar with some of the stories of the Bible, with how God used the women in that day, and in learning how God can use us in our everyday lives. The study is helping her see God as trustworthy and how very much He loves us.
