Bite–sized biographies of inspirational Christian women.
Spanning two millennia and multiple continents, these stories will introduce you to great women in the history of the Christian faith. From Mary in first century Judea, to Catherine Booth in nineteenth century Britain, to Gladys Aylward in twentieth century China. Perpetua and Jane Grey lived brief lives cut short by their conspicuous and brave fidelity to Jesus, while Corrie ten Boom, although no less courageous, lived a long life that testified to God’s compassion and forgiveness.
For all their differences, each one of these women has left an indelible legacy on our collective intergenerational Christian consciousness. Each are worth knowing. To know someone’s story is a privilege. We hope you’re encouraged in your Christian walk as you read of theirs.
The women whose stories are included in this book are:
- Catherine of Siena
- Jane Grey
- Anne Hutchinson
- Anne Dutton
- Selina, Countess of Huntingdon
- Catherine Booth
- Gladys Aylward
