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:

  • Mary
  • Perpetua
  • Catherine of Siena
  • Jane Grey
  • Anne Hutchinson
  • Anne Dutton
  • Selina, Countess of Huntingdon
  • Catherine Booth
  • Gladys Aylward
  • Corrie Ten Boom

This book is a well–researched, engagingly written, and insightful read that is sure to captivate readers and encourage them personally. As the subtitle suggests, the carefully curated stories of these ten women (who range from Mary the mother of Jesus, to twentieth–century missionary Gladys Aylward) mesh together to tell a bigger story.

Nicole Starling, Lecturer in Church History, Morling College, Sydney

… a brilliant and contrasting gallery of subjects, from Mary the mother of Jesus through Catherine of Siena, to Anne Hutchinson, and Gladys Aylward; every chapter reveals an individual powered by faith and determined to act upon it. The vivid and arresting language in which these women are described, and the solid scholarship of the authors, will guarantee a wide readership for the book.
