Women of The Bible by Carol Smith, Ellyn Sanna, Rachael Phillips is a reference guide on the women whose lives were immortalized in the bible. I have always been fascinated and intrigued by the stories about the women in the bible. But my comprehension on the bible is rather limited, as the bible is not exactly written in a modern, every-day language. Unless I read those bibles that are meant for little children, I don’t exactly understand what the bible is trying to tell me.
This ‘Women of The Bible’ visual guide helps me to understand the ancient women in the bible alot. I used to have difficulties imagining how the life of women in biblical times is like, but this visual guide helped me a lot. This visual guide also points out that even though men are more highlighted in the bible, the women does not exactly serves just as a background.
Women in the bible too played important roles in creating history.Stories of strong women were portrayed very vividly in this visual guide, and I enjoyed this visual guide a lot. It doesn’t feel as if I was reading something related to the bible, but I felt as if I was going though an in depth case study about the women in the bible.
Thumbs up for this book, and if I were to rate it, I’d give it a gleaming 5 stars.
