Publishers Description Stories of women larger than life, yet who were vulnerable and in need of God's loving aid--these are the stories you'll find in "Twelve Strong Women of God: Biblical Models for Today. Both women and men who read these stories will recognize some of the problems they face in their own lives. They can take courage from the example of the biblical heroines Marci Alborghetti writes about in her own insightful and easy-to-read style. Reflect on the heroism of Miriam and of the Pharaoh's daughter in protecting Moses, the future leader of Israel. Admire the struggle of Deborah to carry out her role as judge at a time when Israel was unfaithful to God and men dominated the culture. Consider the loyalty of Ruth in following her mother-in-law to a strange land where the people worshipped a different God, and they had to rely on providence for their home and food. The first person narrative brings these figures even more fully to life and closer to our own life situations. It enables us to connect with these women in a very personal way and find answers and direction for the challenges we cope with. "Twelve Strong Women of God is an invaluable read for everyone who would have a more complete view of biblical history, as well as inspiration for their own lives of faith.

Eye opening and Inspirational Reading Jan 3, 2007
This book was purchased for use with a newly formed women's group at our church. I facilitate the group. It was awesome how in the twelve chapters at least one women felt a direct connection between her life experiences and the lives of the women written about. Everyone enjoyed it and spoke out side of the group about it.
I was lucky to have found this and it has made my church group a great success from the get go!
The first person narrative is truly wonderful. Thank you, Marci.
