Women of Bible Lands is an anthology of biblical and early stories about Jewish, Christian, and Muslim women from the nineteenth century B.C.E. to the ninth century C.E. Ancient words and journeys strengthen modern readers for a challenging pilgrimage from the head to the heart as they travel in spirit through the Holy Land to Greece, Turkey, and North Africa.

Spiritual Wisdom from Women of the Bible
Author: Kimberly Sowell,Edna Ellison
Publisher: New Hope Publishers
God Himself made a covenant with His people and throughout the ages He has remained perfectly faithful to His covenant promises. Just as the women of the Bible experienced His faithfulness, so can believers today. The matriarchs of the faith left a legacy of timeless truth for the women who would follow. God led such incredible women as Deborah, Rebekah, Miriam and Hannah through life experiences that now offer great wisdom for the Christian life. Women of the Covenant explores the stories of eight women from Scripture. The authors also include contemporary faith stories from their experiences. These unique testimonies show meaningful application of the scriptural truth explored in each lesson. This eight-lesson study includes questions for individual preparation and group discussion. God's inspired Word includes stories of real people--with both failures and victories--that point to the redeeming work of God, experienced today through Jesus Christ. Women of the Covenant is a spiritual journey for women who carry on the legacy of faith.

Your phone is always ringing; your neighbors are silently pleading; your church is beckoning; and your community and school are begging you to respond to their needs. You want to minister to and influence those around you. But what can you do? What should you do? Everything is calling, but are you called to everything? Within God's plan for women is the secret to the wise use of your time, talents, spiritual gifts, and influence--and thus to true fulfillment. Joyce Rogers shares that secret through a study of the written Word of God, which points to Jesus--the Living Word--as the supreme example of equality of worth and submission to divine authority. Through it you'll see how God desires you to influence others and seek His wisdom to achieve a well-prioritized and balanced life. Whether you're married or single, these words will encourage you with reflections on God's wisdom and authority, and will challenge you to follow in the footsteps of your Savior.

"From diversity comes strength and wisdom": this was the guiding principle for selecting the articles in this collection. Because there is no single voice, identity, history, or cultural experience that represents the women of the First Nations, a realistic picture will have many facets. Accordingly, the authors in Women of the First Nations include Native and non-Native scholars, feminists, and activists from across Canada.Their work examines various aspects of Aboriginal women's lives from a variety of theoretical and personal perspectives. They discuss standard media representations, as well as historical and current realities. They bring new perspectives to discussions on Aboriginal art, literature, historical, and cultural contributions, and they offer diverse viewpoints on present economic, environmental, and political issues.This collection counters the marginalization and silencing of First Nations women's voices and reflects the power, strength, and wisdom inherent in their lives.
