    This book was a huge blessing and was given to me right when I needed it most. I haven't actually returned it to the right place of the shelf because I keep rereading sections. Unlike a lot of books today, this book chose to focus on what these women did right. I get tired of the books that focus of their failures. I highly recommend this book.

    On the whole, it is focused on the "remarkable" women rather than making much of our remarkable God. Disappointing and rather shallow.

    With the Bible being heavily patriarchal, it was interesting to read a fleshed out description of the importance of 19 women who advanced Judaism in the Old Testament and Christ in the New. One of the women, Phoebe, commands only one verse, for instance, but in those few words we discover the courage of a woman who took Paul’s important letter to the Romans. This simple, brave act was instrumental in spreading the fledgling Christian religion.

This simple, brave act was instrumental in spreading the fledgling Christian religion. Elizabeth George has written this book at about the 4th grade level and repeatedly refers to her readers as Beloved or Dear One. I find this incredibly annoying and condescending. She bullet points a lot and asks us to consider certain spiritual questions regarding a woman’s “place” (are we still in the 1950’s?). A few are worthwhile, but most bugged me. Nevertheless, if you enrich your understanding of these women with research on the internet and perhaps a study Bible, you can learn some powerful stuff. Several of the women were rich and powerful, others were dirt poor and nobodies. All of them are inspirational, faithful and worthy of our attention and emulation.

    This is a wonderful introduction to the women in the Bible and what we can learn from them. It also is a great refresher for those who need to be reminded of stories from the Bible. This is one of my favorite Gilbert books!

    Great review of 19 remarkable women in the Bible whose life and actions made a difference. Recommend purchasing the study guide along with the book and doing the study in a group or alone.

    As a new wife I cute my teeth, spiritually speaking, on the writing of Elizabeth George. For several years I read book after book by her and grew immensely in my understanding and application of the Bible and therefore have a high respect for this godly woman. Once again, in The Remarkable Women of the Bible, she digs into God's Word to help us better understand the many stories in Scripture. I enjoyed being challenged to pull apart the story and cross reference to learn as much from each event As a new wife I cute my teeth, spiritually speaking, on the writing of Elizabeth George. For several years I read book after book by her and grew immensely in my understanding and application of the Bible and therefore have a high respect for this godly woman. Once again, in The Remarkable Women of the Bible, she digs into God's Word to help us better understand the many stories in Scripture. I enjoyed being challenged to pull apart the story and cross reference to learn as much from each event as possible. However, while George is excellent as pulling out facts for deeper understanding, I find her application to be too self-focused rather than Christ-focused. More times than not the lesson's application is about what we should do and how to do it rather than about God and what He both has done, and will do in our lives. I appreciate books that help me practically apply, but I believe the application in this book is frequently shown as more important than understanding how these women's lives point us to God and the work of Christ on our behalf. The focus of learning came from what these women did or did not do, rather than on our remarkable Savior and the fact that God chose to use these women despite their imperfections rather than because of their few good moments - which were only possible through God in the first place.

    Doubt see the obstacles. Faith sees the way. Doubt sees the darkest night. Faith sees the day. Doubt dreads to take a step. Faith soars on high. Doubt questions, "Who believes?" Faith answers, "I." My favourite part of the book were the poems. And I don't even like poems!! I appreciated the food for thought provided by the learning points from the different character but wish there could have been more background and insight into each character.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. The chapters on Hannah and Mary ended up being my favourites. Elizabeth George does repeat ideas a lot - which can become tedious after a while - and some women who had two chapters really could have been fine with just one, but over all I think this is probably a good introductory book on the importance of studying the people in the Scriptures. While not specifically aimed at married women with children there are many references to being a mother, grandmother, and wife.

While many Study Guides do not enhance the book to which they belong, I think that if you choose to read this book then having the Growth and Study Guide is very helpful for introspection.

    I feel bad giving it 3 stars but I did "like it" and not "really like it" so there you have it. It took me FOREVER to read this book because I would just read one chapter every few weeks. I enjoyed learning about women in the Bible since I knew very little about any of them. If you're wanting to learn more about women in the Bible, this is a good book to read.

    I think this book is absolutely great for any woman to read. My favourite point was in the first chapter regarding Eve. Eve had a lot of things happen to her (her son became a murderer, her other son was murdered etc.) and she had absolutely no one to go to to talk to. She only had her husband and God. This is a great encouragement for me.

    I loved this book. It gave great insight to not only to the more well known women of the Bible but also the lesser known ones. It created in me the an desire to learn more about the women I don't know much about.

    A deep study on the marvelous lives of women which God chose to use throughout history. This book presents the lives and choices of women that were figuring out life, but also the One which is God.
