Item description for Lost Women Of The Bible by Carolyn Custis James...
Overview The women of the Bible have a strong, relevant message for women today that has been lost underneath layers of traditional interpretations and the expectation that God does his most important work through men. Crucial dimensions of their lives have been muted, forgotten, or passed over. Their strong voices are silent at a time when women are searching for answers that will hold up under the pressures and challenges confronting them today. This book brings the women of the Bible into the twenty-first century by recovering their powerful message for contemporary women.

Eye Opening Book Sep 22, 2009
Very well researched book and can be a good topic for Bible Study or a sermon.
Women & Men both are needed in the Church! May 12, 2009
I have read almost every book that I can get my hands on in regards to this topic. James' exegesis is superb, but she writes in a narrative style that the layperson can understand. This is a must read for both clergy and laity. I can easily see it as a book that would be used for mixed Bible Study groups. I would encourage every Christian to read it, because I totally agree with James' that there needs to be a Biblical Alliance of men and women for the growth of the church
