Publisher's Summary

The women of the Bible lived timeless stories - by examining them, we can understand what it means to be a woman of faith.

People unfamiliar with Scripture often assume that women play a small, secondary role in the Bible. But in fact, they were central figures in numerous Biblical tales. It was Queen Esther’s bravery at a vital point in history which saved her entire people. The Bible contains warriors like Jael, judges like Deborah, and prophets like Miriam. The first person to witness Jesus’ resurrection was Mary Magdalene, who promptly became the first Christian evangelist, eager to share the news which would change the world forever.

In The Women of the Bible Speak, Fox News Channel's Shannon Bream opens up the lives of 16 of these Biblical women, arranging them into pairs and contrasting their journeys. In pairing their stories, Shannon helps us reflect not only on the meaning of each individual’s life, but on how they relate to each other and to us. 

From the shepherdesses of ancient Israel who helped raise the future leaders of the people of God, to the courageous early Christians, the narrative of the Bible offers us many vivid and fascinating female characters. In their lives we can see common struggles to resist bitterness, despair, and pride, and to instead find their true selves in faith, hope, and love. In studying 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 the lessons we can take from the valor of Esther, the hope of Hannah, the audacity of Rahab, and the faith of Mary. In broadening each woman’s individual story, Shannon offers us a deeper understanding of each, and wisdom and insights that can transform our own lives today.

A book for everyone

If you’re a Christian woman you will enjoy this book
If you’re a Christian man you’re understanding about women in the Bible and women in general might expand.
If you’re not a Christian you’re understanding of Christians may improve.
And if you’re a non- believer I think you will enjoy these stories about women whose lives have been portrayed in the story of life on earth, also known as the Bible.

Listen to them speak!

I have thoroughly enjoyed this audio book The Women of the Bible Speak. I found it quite inspiring. The author / narrator has gone into detail presenting so much additional history, the back stories and, in some cases, the ties to one another. She helps us to understand their strengths and to grapple with their weaknesses. She goes beyond the "Sunday School" version and dives headlong into culture and traditions which helps us to see what makes these women remarkable. If following God's plan or following Jesus meant breaking the 'norm' that is what some of these women intended to do. Listening to this book, these Women of the Bible spoke to me. I believe they will do the same for you.

Incredible insight & clear gospel message.

One of the best Christian women’s books I have read and I have read many throughout my 65 years of study and seeking as a follower of Jesus Christ. What a unique illumination of the Scriptural text. Beautiful delivery. Thank you Shannon. Your book will encourage and inspire many.

Amazing book!!! One of the very best out there.

This book allows for a much better understanding of the bible. Also brings to attention the infinite and endless fairness of the God of the bible, even in the old testament. Jesus Christ is Lord
