~In his eagerly anticipated follow-up to the enormously successful Seven Men, New York Times best-selling author Eric Metaxas gives us seven captivating portraits of some of historyâ€™s greatest women, each of whom changed the course of history by following Godâ€™s call upon their livesâ€”as women.
Each of the world-changing figures who stride across these pagesâ€”Joan of Arc, Susanna Wesley, Hannah More, Maria Skobtsova, Corrie ten Boom, Mother Teresa, and Rosa Parksâ€”is an exemplary model of true womanhood. Teenaged Joan of Arc followed Godâ€™s call and liberated her country, dying a heroic martyrâ€™s death. Susanna Wesley had nineteen children and gave the world its most significant evangelist and its greatest hymn-writer, her sons John and Charles. Corrie ten Boom, arrested for hiding Dutch Jews from the Nazis, survived the horrors of a concentration camp to astonish the world by forgiving her tormentors. And Rosa Parksâ€™ deep sense of justice and unshakeable dignity and faith helped launch the twentieth-centuryâ€™s greatest social movement.
Writing in his trademark conversational and engaging style, Eric Metaxas reveals how the other extraordinary women in this book achieved their greatness, inspiring readers to lives shaped by the truth of the gospel.
