Reviews - What do customers think about From Eve to Esther: Letting Old Testament Women Speak to Us?
From Eve to Esther Jan 12, 2008
Our women's Bible Study group think this is one of the best studies they have experienced. This book not only gives background information, but gives in depth spiritual nourishment. The group especially likes the questions at the end of the chapters which make them think about their own spiritual journey and what steps they need to make in order to help them develop a closer walk with the Lord. They are looking forward to studying From Mary to Lydia.
