Featured Review

"You hold in your hands a book that can transform the life of anyone -- no matter how serious their failures or how stubborn their sins! I was intrigued by these stories because I know that they describe real women who encountered real grace, forgiveness and transformation. If anyone doubts that God can redeem our failures, they should read this book, then pass it along to a friend!"

Erwin Lutzer, Senior Pastor, Moody Church, Chicago, Illinois


6 women from Jesus' family line in the Bible, 6 women from Jesus' family today in the Church - all ordinary yet all extraordinary!

As you read about these ordinary women, you will see how God's extraordinary grace was extended to:

  • Fran's dysfunctional family

  • Mary's humble beginnings and lack of education

  • Judy's wrong choices and illicit relationships

  • Pam's illegitimacy and abuse as a child

  • Tamar's victimization by the system

  • Camille's sordid history with men

Mary Whelchel's conversational style, honed from successful broadcasting, make these stories of biblical and contemporary women linger in your thoughts - bringing you face-to-face with the life-changing power of God's grace.

You'll discover that God transformed ordinary women in the past - and continues to do so today. Extraordinary Women by Grace offers hope and encouragement to all women, regardless of past failures, defeats, or missed opportunities.

... explains their stories in a contemporary way, making it easy to see the relevance of these biblical women to lives of women today. After each biblical character, there is a story of a present women who shares similarities in life experiences. This is definitely not a 'poor them' book, rather the emphasis is on how God's grace changes lives, and gives women the strength to grow through trials. It could be particularly helpful to any who feel their live is, or has been 'too bad' to be transformed by God. The need to keep close to God and his word is a theme throughout.
A book of challenge and encouragement for all women.
