Reviews - What do customers think about Twelve Extraordinary Women
Paperback– October 5, 2008?

Small Bible Study  Apr 1, 2008
We have been studying this for the past few months slowly due to only meeting once a week. We have discovered fascinating new details about some of the women of the Bible that we did not know. While we have found a few discrepancies, they are minor and we talk it out as a group. Overall, we are finding this study to be enlightening and are looking forward to the rest of it.
Very Disappointing  Mar 13, 2008
I have led numerous Bible studies, and this book has been a real disappointment. The writing lacks balance, is often disorganized, and even has an "anti-women" tone to it. I find myself having to work all week to plan our study, to supplement what he's written. I would not recommend this book.
Excellent book.  Mar 3, 2008
It helped me so see and understand how important these women really were in the lineage of Jesus. How God can change the seemingly impossible. Wonderful book!
An excellent Study  Feb 16, 2008
Dr. John's MacArthur's book, Twelve Extraordinary Women - How God Shaped Women of the Bible and What He wants to do with you - has proven to be an ideal textbook used in two women's study groups. His writing style offers many clear and picturesque descriptions of each of his 12 subjects. Personal applications abound as each life is protrayed Biblically and from a human standpoint. I highly recommend this book for individual reading as well as a group study textbook.
Enlightening  Nov 26, 2007
I had high hopes for this book when I bought it, and I was not at all disappointed. McArthur gives an enlightening short study on each of the women. It is enjoyable to read as well as informative. The women come alive as you read about their stories.

I love all the cultural and historical background he gives. It really helped me understand the women better. I was better able to empathize with their choices and struggles. It also gives plenty of scriptural references. You can read it with your bible next to you. He gives insight on the women and their situations that I would not have thought about on my own. In each of their stories, he finds issues that are relevant to us today, and biblical teachings that are woven in the lives of each woman.

I also like how he shows the bigger picture for the women. How their lives were affected by their past, and how their choices would affect generations to come. He shows how Christ is the central player in all of their lives, and how God is the Master Playwright. The women became real to me as I read their stories.

McArthur showed his respect and honor for these women and the role they played in biblical events. He did throw in a lot of his own speculations on what might have been in areas that the bible is silent on. However, he has done a lot of research and always makes clear what the bible says versus what he thinks. Overall a wonderfully facinating read. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to learn more about the women in the bible.
