Courageous Women of the Bible
By LaTan Roland Murphy
Learn to live, love, and lead courageously—
Do you lack courage? Confidence? This book is for you! When you think of courage and the Bible what do you think of? Probably mostly men. However, in Courageous Women of the Bible the author highlights eleven women who stood the test of endurance and persevered.
These were no ordinary women. They showed courage in every way after going through trials, tests, and tragedies. Here are a few to wet your appetite:
The woman who hemorrhaged
The widow who gave her two coins
Mary, mother of Jesus
The author brings us closer to these women in each chapter. I felt like it was a getting-to-know-you session. Very encouraging and easy to understand. I loved how easy it was to read this book. Each chapter flowed nicely.
This book could be read individually or as a group study. At the end of each chapter, the Courage Quest posed some thought-provoking questions.
Chapter 12 gives the reader a place to journal with questions from each chapter. Such a nice touch to the end of the book.
I give Courageous Women of the Bible four stars. I know you’ll enjoy getting to know these eleven women better and they will encourage you to leave behind your fears to be courageous!
