One Hundred Named Women of the Bible is a walk through the Bible from beginning to end, highlighting the lives and experiences of women as the major characters. It may appeal to the beginning Bible student as well as those with more advanced expectations.
From the lives of these women, we glean lessons in love and hate, victory and defeat, grief and gladness, courage and fear, and faith and forgiveness. We see a progression in opportunities—from women being allowed to say very little in the beginning, to being able to make major decisions in the end. In the Old Testament, the first woman, Eve, introduced the world to sin; in the New Testament, another woman, Mary, presents the world with a Savior. What a contrast!
