The Women of the Bible Speak: The Wisdom of 16 Women & Their Lessons for Today, by Shannon Bream
- Author: Shannon Bream
The women of the Bible lived timeless stories, and as we study them, we can learn what it truly means to be a women of faith.
People who aren't familiar with Scripture sometimes get the idea that women play a small, secondary role in the Bible. However, they played central roles in several Biblical accounts. It was Queen Esther's bravery at a vital point in history which saved her people. The Bible includes stories of warriors like Jael, judges like Deborah, and prophets like Miriam. The first person to witness the resurrection of Jesus was Mary Magdalene, who quickly became the first Christian evangelist, eager to proclaim the good news which would change the world forever.
In The Women of the Bible Speak, Fox News Channel's Shannon Bream explores the lives of sixteen of these Biblical women, grouping them into pairs and contrasting their journeys. In pairing their stories, Shannon will help us reflect not only on the meaning of each individual's life, but also on how they relate to each other and to us.
The narrative of the Bible provides many vivid and captivating female characters from the shepherdesses of ancient Israel who helped raise up future leaders of the people of God, to the courageous early Christians. We can find common struggles to resist bitterness, despair, and pride through their lives, and also discover our true selves in faith, hope, and love. As we study these heroes of the faith, we can find wisdom and warnings for how to better navigate our own faith journeys.
The Women of the Bible Speak outlines lessons we can take from the valor of Esther, the hope of Hannah, the audacity of Rahab, and the faith of Mary. In expanding each woman's individual story, Shannon gives us a deeper understanding of each, with wisdom and insight that can transform our own lives today. Each chapter has a follow up section with study questions, making this a wonderful resource for individual or small group Bible studies.
