"You hold in your hands a book that can transform the life of anyone -- no matter how serious their failures or how stubborn their sins! I was intrigued by these stories because I know that they describe real women who encountered real grace, forgiveness and transformation. If anyone doubts that God can redeem our failures, they should read this book, then pass it along to a friend!"-- Erwin W. Lutzer, The Moody Church
... explains their stories in a contemporary way, making it easy to see the relevance of these biblical women to lives of women today. After each biblical character, there is a story of a present women who shares similarities in life experiences. This is definitely not a 'poor them' book, rather the emphasis is on how God's grace changes lives, and gives women the strength to grow through trials. It could be particularly helpful to any who feel their live is, or has been 'too bad' to be transformed by God. The need to keep close to God and his word is a theme throughout.
A book of challenge and encouragement for all women.
