Book Review: Twelve Extraordinary Women

Photobucket Author:  John MacArthur

Genre:  Christian

Rating (1=lowest, 5=highest):

Synopsis:  Take a journey into the lives of Anna, Rahab, and Lydia and other Biblical women and see how God worked in their lives!

Like:  I like how MacArthur gives each woman (with the exception of Mary and Martha) their own chapter, therefore giving details and thoughts.  He paints a beatiful and authentic portrait of each woman and how God stirred their hearts.  Theologically sound and very well done!

Don't like:  I didn't find anything that I didn't like.

Conclusion:  MacArthur's study of twelve women from the Bible proved informative, enlightening, and inspiring.  An excellent read!


  1. What a timely recommendation - I'm currently studying the lives of the women of the Bible. I'm definitely adding this to my reading list!

  2. Another book that is similar to this one is Lineage of Grace by Francine Rivers. She tells the story of five women in the geneology of Jesus and how God worked in their lives. (Tamar, Rehab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary)
