Item description for Ordinary Women Extraordinary God: Practical Insights from Women of the Bible by June Hesterly & Sandy MacIntosh...
Overview Most of us dream of lives that rise above the mundane, and yet, our own limitations stare back at us from the mirror each day. In Ordinary Women, Extraordinary God, Calvary Chapel pastors' wives and ministry leaders-including Kay Smith, Cathe Laurie, Diane Coy, and Jean McClure-point to the One who can take your ordinary life and make it extraordinary for Him. This collection of snapshots from the lives of women of the Bible is not a reference work, but a series of Bible studies filled with personal insights and challenging applications. Each author highlights one or two women, reminding us of the rewards of faith and the consequences of sin. From Mary Magdalene to Hannah, Dorcas, and Ruth - you will see yourself in women whose destinies were transformed when their simple faith met the power of God. You will also see yourself in their flaws and gain new hope to move beyond failure to a life of victory. Reflection questions at the end of each chapter invite you to draw your own conclusions and apply biblical truth to your life. Ordinary Women, Extraordinary God will leave you longing for more of our extraordinary God!

Ordinary Women, Extraordinary God: Practical Insights from Women of the Bible Jan 16, 2008
I love the life lessons that can be found from women in the Bible. And especially the deep truths that come from good teaching on those women. This book offers practical insights from 16 women found in God's Word taught by seasoned pastors' wives and a womens ministry leader. Each chapter ends with great application questions that can be answered personally or used for group discussion. Many churches are already using this book for their women's Bible study.
A companion journal to this book is available also. It is called An Extraordinary Journey: Discovering God's Purpose for Your Life. And it has further thought-provoking questions along with plenty of room to record the answers the Lord reveals to you.
My prayer is that our extraordinary God will use this book to transform you from the ordinary into an extraordinary woman He can use.
Lovely resource on biblical women May 17, 2006
Our church did a bible study based on this book. I do love the way this book is layed out. Each chapter is a different women of the bible, and is assigned to a different author. The authors are Pastor's wives from Calvary Chapel's.I do love getting a different writing style, and theme to each chapter, it makes the read more interesting and go much faster.
I can't give a reason for giving it only 4 stars. It was very good, and I enjoyed it very much, but I just didn't love it.
I would suggest reading it though. It is insightful, and helps you get a little back ground on the life of a pastor's wives as well as the women of the bible chosen for each chapter.
