    1. Lola

      I loved getting to know these extraordinary women. Their strength is amazing. Now these are women we should try to emulate and place on our most influential women list.

      I shared this with a women's circle some time ago and now recently to members of my Bible study group.This is a great little book to use to begin to learn about the women in the Hebrew tradition. Reading this can both inform and inspire the reader.Recommended

      This was pointless. It started out with the passage of one of the women and then in the next paragraph it reiterated everything it had just said the passage.
