Item description for Sisterhood of Faith: 365 Life-Changing Stories about Women Who Made a Difference by Shirely Brosius...
Overview They are missionaries and martyrs, media personalities and ministers. All are women of faith whose inspiring stories are now captured in 365 dramatic profiles by author Shirley Brosius. Within each brief biography are messages drawn from their lives along with conclusions that invite the reader to respond in life-changing ways. Excellent as both a daily devotional and a catalyst for group discussion, Sisterhood of Faith goes beyond the perplexing dialogue about the role of women in the church and focuses on those who have simply devoted themselves to living out God?s love in often-dramatic ways.
Community Description The idea for this book began germinating in the mid-1990s when I was invited to instruct a seminary course on women in ministry. As my students and I reflected on the challenges we had faced firsthand as women in ministry, the stories of other women who had done great things, often with little support, made our experiences seem less remarkable.
This book, the result of those discoveries, is meant to be read as a daily devotional, with time spent pondering the messages and responses drawn from the lives of those women.

A Beautiful and Necessary Book Mar 4, 2008
Shirley Brosius has written a beautiful and important book that I would highly receommend for every woman (and even man!). SISTERHOOD OF FAITH provides a stunning array of strong Christian women (365 in all) who have powerfully influenced the world for the better. From Abigail Adams to Catherine Marshall and more, Brosius insightfully captures the essence of their different committment and courage, and she reveals their power through her words. Each woman's story also includes a helpful Biblical verse and a question for thought. My wife and I very much appreciated their stories and the way in which they inspired our own. In a society that is often rocked by demeaning culture, Brosius's book shines as an example of love, courage and risk. It is, indeed, a beautiful and inspiring work.

This Book Surprised Me Oct 31, 2006
At first glance, I thought this was just another devotional book written by the women on the cover. It surprised me that it is not a devo but a collection of inspirational short stories, written by the author, about women who have made -- some who are making -- a difference in the world. Then I discovered the alphabetical order of names, making it an easy reference to locate a woman and read about her. The enormous variety of women was a surprise; one funded a seminary, "Biddy" Chambers published her husband's sermons, one was a martyr for Christ, some were preachers, monarchs, reformers, stay-at-home moms who founded companies, others today are singers, songwriters, and evangelists, and one is our First Lady. What a surprise to discover the scores of websites and resources listed in the back. I'm pleasantly surprised with the easy-to-read format and challenging "My Response" question at the end of each short story.
As a professional speaker and writer on child behavior, I recognize many of my colleagues. This book is well-written and enlightening. It's definitely a delight and a keeper!
The Birth to Five Book: Confident Childrearing Right from the Start
You have got to have it! Oct 27, 2006
I was so inspired by the pages of Sisterhood of Faith. Each page tells of women making a difference for the cause of Christ. Sometimes we look at our lives and struggle with our day to day issues. When I begin my morning reading a page from this book it helps me put my life into perspective. The women of this book took their ordinary lives and focused their efforts towards the cause of Christ. If you are a housewife that needs encouragement, a woman in ministry who is struggling with her call or someone who wants to start her day being uplifted, this is the book for you! You have got to have it!
