“Lost women of the Bible” by Carolyn Curtis James

You know the women of the Bible, but you don’t know them like this…It’s easy for Christian women – young and old – to get lost between the opportunities and demands of the present and the biblical teachings of the past.  They live in a confusing world, caught in the crossfire between church and culture.  Although home and family still remain central, more women than ever, by choice or by necessity, are blending home, career and ministry.  They need strong biblical role models to help them meet these challenges.

Building on solid scholarship and a determinations to wrestle honestly with perplexing questions, this book sheds new light on ancient stories that brings the women of the bible into the 21st century.  This fresh look at the women in the Bible unearths surprising new insights and a powerful message that will leave readers feeling challenged, encouraged and deeply valued.
