Item description for Women Who Achieved for God (Fisherman Bible Studyguides) by Winnie Christensen...
Overview These studies give insight into the lives of women of faith whose willingness to act upon God's leading made them achievers for him. Some of them are little-known women, such as Dorcas and Phoebe. Some, such as Deborah and Esther, are well-known role models. Follow the example of these great women of history, and learn to be a person who achieves for God today!
Publishers Description The drive to succeed is a strong force in Western culture, and women are powerfully influenced by it. It is tempting to pursue triumphs that will impress the world, rather than achievements that will advance God's kingdom. In these studies, you'll meet fascinating historical women of the Bible who enjoyed worthy successes--women whose willingness to act upon God's leading made them achievers for him. Some well-known, some lesser known; some rich, some poor, these women came from all walks of life. Studying their stories will encourage you to become an influencer for God in your world.
"I can't say enough good things about Women Who Achieved for God. It gets at the heart of the unworthiness so many women feel and finds the stories within Scripture that we so desperately need to hear, consider, think about together and apply to our everyday lives. But it?s also a great Bible Study for couples, though that may not have been her intent. It is so well balanced, so rich with God's faithfulness in helping each of us achieve what he has in store for us, no matter how insignificant we may at times feel we are in the scheme of things. I hope to introduce it to our own community church. It would make a great study for a group though I've been doing it by myself (and sharing it with my husband, too). It felt as though Winnie had been eavesdropping on my life, directing me to the very scriptural supports I needed to read to feel reassured of God?s presence and guidance in my everyday life. May it reach thousands!" --Jane Kirkpatrick, author of All Together in One Place Winnie Christensen(Women Who Achieved for God; Women Who Believed God) is a veteran Bible teacher and author of several best-selling study guides.

Beginning Study Mar 4, 2010
This review refers to the 1984 publication.
This small study guide turns the spotlight on 19 women from the Bible. The author's spirited introduction sets the stage for learning about women who made a difference in their time. The strength of this guide is that it leads the readers to do their own study and draw their own conclusions.
