Publishers Description Contemporary women face numerous challenging and often painful issues, including infertility, caring for aging parents, singleness, the generation gap, the role of women in marriage and ministry, materialism, and difficult marriages. We're not alone. All of these issues were faced by women in the Bible, and it's God's desire that we learn from, and find encouragement in, their stories. Learn how you can make a difference in your family, your church, and your community by studying the examples of scriptural women who in so many ways were just like us. "Women Like Us is an inspiring study guide rich with wisdom, insight, and hope from the lives of Sarah, Hannah, Deborah, Naomi, and other prominent women of the bible. As wives, mothers, friends, adult children, and citizens, they were 'just like us.' This easy-to-use guide offers women of today an opportunity to learn from their decisions and choices--even from the mistakes."

This is an excellent Bible study on the women of the bible. May 27, 2003
This study guide is excellent for individual or group study. Covers several different women of the Bible and has great discussion questions and leader's guide located at the back of the book. I think you or your group will really enjoy it. I learned sooo much from doing this study with the Sunday school class.
