Présentation de l'éditeur

Throughout history, countless women have boldly stepped out in faith and courage, leaving their indelible mark on those around them and on the kingdom of God. In lively prose Michelle DeRusha tells their stories, bringing into focus fifty incredible heroines of the faith. From Catherine of Siena, Teresa of Avila, and Anne Hutchison to Susanna Wesley, Harriet Tubman, and Corrie ten Boom, women both famous and admirable live again under DeRusha's expert pen. These engaging narratives are a potent reminder to readers that we are not alone, the battles we face today are not new, and God is always with us in the midst of the struggle.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 50 Women heroes I want my daughter to know 16 septembre 2014
Par Lisa-Jo Baker - Publié sur
I want to raise a courageous daughter in an age that believes the sum of her appearance must fit into a teeny, tiny, little size zero box with its edges tightly, perfectly manicured shut.

So I’ve been looking for the opposite. Examples of what living, breathing, change-the-world courage looks like from the women who’ve come before us.

Women who weren’t afraid of their wrinkles or their gray hair. Women who laughed so loud they spit out little bits of broccoli. Women who took careers and challenges and journeys that made the eyes of their family and the men around them bug out.

I want to learn about the women who make brave look ordinary because they don’t know any other way.

And then Michelle DeRusha wrote this book: 50 Women Every Christian Should Know: Learning from Heroines of the Faith.

And my daughter and I will be book-marking its pages for years to come.

Fifty women who teach us that famous isn’t about how many people know your name and that brave often looks like pressing on even when you’re afraid.

Fifty women who weren’t intimidated, limited or silenced by being assigned to “women’s work.”

Fifty women who preached, lived, and often died for the Gospel.

Doctors, lawyers, midwives. Teachers, preachers, wives and mothers. Translators and scholars. Women who faced obstacles I can only just barely imagine. Women who were undaunted by the most daunting horizons.

Women with stories that sometimes hurt to read.

Women who challenge us not to try and “tidy up reality.” But instead to “go forth without fear.”

This is a five star must read for those of us raising daughters in this world that tries to dictate who they must grow up to be. This book reminds us not to be afraid. This book preaches Gospel to ourselves and lights a brave path our daughters can follow in.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Moved to Go Deeper 3 octobre 2014
Par Charity Singleton Craig - Publié sur
50 Women provides short vignettes of Christian heroines across 11 decades and multiple continents. The book would have seemed incomplete without Julian of Norwich, Teresa of Avila, Susanna Wesley, Lottie Moon, Corrie Ten Boom, and Dorothy Sayers. And they are all in there, along with other well-known women of the faith like Hannah Whitall Smith, Amy Carmichael, Ruth Bell Graham, and a personal favorite, Madeleine L’Engle. But the book also includes brief bios of other mothers and sisters I was less familiar with, like Saint Birgitta, Jarena Lee, Pandita Ramabai, and Gladys Aylward.

As I read each chapter, not only do these women themselves stand out as models of faithfulness, but also their families, and particularly some of the men in their lives—fathers, brothers, friends—who offered education and opportunity to these heroines during times when women were otherwise denied those “luxuries.”

Though the chapters are arranged chronologically, I find mixing them up gives me a greater sense of God’s providence and helps me understand the extraordinary obstacles women of every color and nation and age have had to overcome. The chapters are short enough to read one or two a day, the length of them a testament to the disciplined skill of the author, who likely could have written an entire book on each woman but narrowed them down to manageable introductions.

Rather than satisfy my curiosity, the book moves me to look deeper and get to know the women more. And Michelle offers end notes with resources to do just that.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Wisdom Remains 16 septembre 2014
Par J. Ferguson - Publié sur
Today in my quiet time, I asked God for some wisdom and uplifting words to soothe my weary soul. After meditating on some scriptures, I felt led to my bookshelf where Michelle's book sat. I skimmed the table of contents, wanting instantly to absorb the wisdom of these women's lives. I asked God which woman I should read about today and was led to Ruth Graham Bell. When my eyes found this quote, my heart leapt. I knew this was the piece God wanted to use to help my downtrodden heart: "Make the least of all that goes and the most of all that comes. And keep looking forward. Don't look backwards." I am incredibly grateful for this book, as it gives us access to women who have gone before us and we are able to bring them into our present communities. Though their bodies are no longer with us, their wisdom remains alive within these pages.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Meticulous research, masterful writing make for a clear, engaging book. 16 septembre 2014
Par Sheila Seiler Lagrand - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
Remember that old quote attributed to Mark Twain, "I would have written a shorter letter, but I didn't have time"? Michelle DeRusha takes the time. In this book she provides us with meticulously researched and masterfully crafted introductions to fifty women who rocked their worlds for God. Each entry is brief--just a few pages--but Michelle's keen eye for significance and clear, engaging writing style pack a detailed picture of each woman into those few pages.

Buy it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 On Every Christian's Bookshelf 16 septembre 2014

A funny thing happened to Michelle DeRusha on the way to getting her fabulous memoir, "Spiritual Misfit," published earlier this year. She wrote another book!

And friends, it’s a doozy! I will admit that I am partial to her memoir — it’s the best one I’ve read in ages, filled with real life wonder, humor and redemption. But. . . this one right here? It’s a tremendous resource for all kinds of reasons, a book that should be on the shelf of every church library and in the hands of every young Christian. (And older ones, too.)

What started out as an assignment, blossomed into a powerful and moving testimony to the power of the Holy Spirit at work in the hearts and lives of women. Women across the centuries and around the world. Every chapter is a stand alone, in some ways. Well-researched, well-written and inspirational stories of gifted, called, obedient and very human women, all of whom have been conduits for the grace of God in various and wondrous ways.

From Hildegard of Bingen in the 12th century, through Susanna Wesley in the 18th through more familiar saints in the 20th and 21st centuries, each chapter is a rewarding read. Some of these names you are familiar with, some you are not. All of them are worth reading about and learning from. I urge you to order your copy today. In fact, order multiple copies and give some away to women (and men, too) who might need a little encouragement and/or inspiration. You'll find plenty of both here. I promise.
