Deciphering women's stories in the Bible can be frustrating and lead to dead ends. So many women appear once and then disappear. Most are not even given a name. Women in the Bible uncovers women's stories and provides tools for studying women in the Bible. Each chapter examines a particular group of women, such as wives and mothers, prophets and leaders, then focuses on individual women.
Insights: Bible Studies for Growing Faith is a fresh and timely Bible study series. In these short-term, thematically based resources, individuals and groups are invited to find meaning and direction for their lives by exploring the Scriptures in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking.
