Présentation de l'éditeur

The inspiring stories of the women who helped to shape our faith

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 Ávila, and Anne Hutchinson to Susanna Wesley, Harriet Tubman, and Corrie ten Boom, these admirable women live again under DeRusha's expert pen. These engaging narratives are a potent reminder to us 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.

"This book is rich in inspiration and information. Reading it opened my eyes, broadened my vision, and challenged my faith. I highly recommend it to both men and women!"--Warren W. Wiersbe, author and former pastor of the Moody Church, Chicago

"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. My daughter and I are both indebted to Michelle for introducing us to many women we'd never met before and are sure never to forget."--Lisa-Jo Baker, community manager for (in)courage and author of Surprised by Motherhood

"In the face of some of the same questions, temptations, and doubts we encounter today, these women were pioneers. Their stories give the church of today--men and women alike--a courageous and brave example of living faith and of living out faith, the evidence of things unseen."--Deidra Riggs, managing editor of The High Calling and founder of Jumping Tandem

"In this thoroughly researched and well-written work, Michelle DeRusha invites us into the lives of fifty women whose stories are our stories. This book inspired me, challenged me, and made me feel so proud to be a woman who belongs to Jesus."--Jennifer Dukes Lee, author of Love Idol

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.

It's ok but honestly not sure if some of these women should be included......really, some are definitely more on the list of heretics than women who are Heroines of the Christian Faith.

Also, a slow read......I know it's meant to be biographical but I think the content is filtered more through the author making these being women who inspire others than accurate history. And it's not a book that will capture and hold your interest very well.

So read it for what it OK book about women who had faith through difficult lives.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 God Didn't Stop Using Women When the Canon Closed 27 novembre 2014
Par Wayne Stiles - Publié sur
Most of us men tend to look to other men of history when we look for heroes. That's precisely why I chose to read this book.

After all, in Scripture we see God powerfully using women, and His work through their lives didn't cease when the canon closed. Michelle DeRusha has put a lot of work into a volume sure to encourage, inspire, and inform each reader. It probably may even frustrate all who read it. That's because these 50 women all come from different backgrounds and denominations, and no reader will identify with the beliefs of every woman. Some readers may even quibble whether or not some were even saved.

But one trait each woman has unarguably: Passion for God's work. (I would have loved for the book to include Sarah Edwards.)

Honestly, that's what most encouraged me about the book. Forget the mystics here who heard Jesus audibly. Overlook for a moment those who sidestepped biblical commands and did what they believed God led them to do. Right or wrong, guided or misguided, these ladies clearly thought they were following God. That causes me to pause and to remember the sure words of Jesus:

"I know your deeds . . . that you cannot tolerate evil men, and you put to the test those who call themselves apostles, and they are not, and you found them to be false; and you have perseverance and have endured for My name’s sake, and have not grown weary. But I have this against you, that you have left your first love." (Revelation 2:2–4)

It isn't enough that we have good deeds and right doctrine. We must also have devotion. 50 Women Every Christian Should Know was a good reminder.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good, but Not Great 8 novembre 2014
Par Cornhusker - Publié sur
In her book, 50 Women Every Christian Should Know, Michelle DeRusha writes brief biographies of women who impacted their societies and cultures. Each profile is five to seven pages long and summarizes these significant women who lived from the Middle Ages to the present day. Highlighting each woman’s life and beliefs within their historical contexts, 50 Women is not a critique of their various theological viewpoints. It is, however, helpful in educating the reader about the lives of influential women who may have been overlooked.
50 Women Every Christian Should Know is useful in filling gaps in Christian history. The biographical and historical information is interesting and informative. The profiles of Katharina Von Bora, Fanny Crosby, Edith Schaeffer, and Flannery O’Conner are especially enjoyable. However, the work lacks depth. Some of the women discussed dabbled in mysticism and entertained theological error. There seems to be an absence of biblical and political discernment throughout. No doubt each woman had an impact on her society, but there is too much ecumenical emphasis. These women deserve to be known, but are not on equal theological footing. Not without historical value, 50 Women should be read with caution in mind.

I was given a free copy from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
