Thank you, Vance Christie, for your amazing biographies of five remarkable Christian women in history. Your book, Women of
Faith and Courage, shows in a beautifully-written and fascinating style, the faithful devotion of these women for Christ, and allows us to look deeply into their lives and ministries. I can highly recommend this book, and I hope women around the world will study it for personal spiritual growth and also in a group Bible study setting. Truly, these five women are role models for all of us today!

"Whether confronted with poverty, a self-centered husband, endless debt, physical disabilities, perennial illness, government persecution, destructive fires, or loneliness, they all found faith in Christ gave them a courage to overcome every obstacle and serve Him."
Diana Lynn Severance, A historian with broad experience teaching in universities and seminaries, Spring, Texas
Nothing inspires me like reading about the lives of women who lived and died serving the Lord Jesus. Vance Christie has done a wonderful job of opening the lives of five women-sharing their strengths and weaknesses as well as their victories and tragedies. I came away knowing that all I must do is to please God and the affirmation that the key to doing that is obedience, standing under Scripture without being swayed by my own logic or perceived giftedness or even by the opportunities presented! Indeed for God to take ordinary women and use them in such extraordinary ways should give every woman a mandate to serve the Lord faithfully even if in the most humble circumstances!
Dorothy K. Patterson, Professor of Theology in Women?s Studies, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Forth Worth, Texas
"He has written each life story in such a vibrant way, truly making each of the five women come alive."
