    This book came to me as a complimentary copy from Hachette Book Group. My review is based on my experience reading it and reflects my opinion. Initially I was skeptical when I read the author would meet Women of the Bible in a dreamlike experience and spend a few minutes with each to learn about the lessons they have to share. I was pleasantly surprised when I found the author made this story telling style work quite well. Each woman shares her story and the lesson to be learned from it.

Initially I was skeptical when I read the author would meet Women of the Bible in a dreamlike experience and spend a few minutes with each to learn about the lessons they have to share. I was pleasantly surprised when I found the author made this story telling style work quite well. Each woman shares her story and the lesson to be learned from it. This book makes me think about choices, challenges, faith, hope, forgiveness, and so much more. There is a lot to ponder and I look forward to re-reading it. The individual stories are not just leadership lessons - they are life lessons. I appreciate the author's admiration and inclusion of the kind and wise women in his life. These women share their views at the end of each chapter in the form of a "Woman to Woman" talk. Reflective questions follow and help deepen one's understanding. This book touched something in me and it sparked an interest to learn more about these women in the Bible. I also got the audiobook so I can listen to the stories while I commute. On a side note: The audiobook is narrated quite well. The book is very well written, easy to read, and simply a joy.

    Ok… I already know I won’t be able to finish this…Maxwell has a vision from his mother that has passed away several years ago and as he and his mother walk in heaven and have a insightful conversation with these women from the bible. I will only read one chapter and it on Ruth. Naomi is the reason why Ruth has hope, and it is Naomi that has led her to Boaz, Naomi and Ruth have a special relationship and it is so because of God’s work in both of these women. I realize this is not actual vision but Ok… I already know I won’t be able to finish this…Maxwell has a vision from his mother that has passed away several years ago and as he and his mother walk in heaven and have a insightful conversation with these women from the bible.

I realize this is not actual vision but a prose to know and give insight to these women of the bible. In doing this study this way, it looses the integrity of the word. It puts the focus on the women themselves. Their sovereignty and faithfulness. Th focus is off for me. This one I cannot recommend and I could not finish. Thank you FaithWords and Netgalley for an ARC and the opportunity to review

    I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads, and I was pleasantly surprised! I have never read a book by John C. Maxwell, so this was my first experience with his style.

Knowing all nine of these stories from the bible, it was interesting to have another perspective on them. The structure of each chapter (meeting the woman, listening to her story, reading her prayer, listing key take-home points, getting a take on the story from someone close to John Maxwell, discussion questions) was helpful. I would definitely recommend this book to other women!

    I've never read a book from John C. Maxwell before. I was pleasantly surprised, I thought it might be a challenging book to read because I read his bio. But the book was easy to read, easy to understand. Each chapter had it's unique theme and the lessons were constructed in the same way. The only thing I didn't really like was how the author met the women. That was a bit strange and I skipped those parts after the first chapters. The lessons on life and leadership were great, it really made me t I've never read a book from John C. Maxwell before.

For me as a woman, it's inspiring to read about the strong women in the Bible. Thanks to FaithWords / Center Street and NetGalley for providing a free copy.

    This book is fictional, but it's format may be helpful to some. Each character from the Bible is positioned to tell a bit of their story from their perspective. Obviously, the author has had to conjecture. In the process, the characters become a bit more real and human. The lessons from their stories are a bit easier to decipher. I recommend reading the relevant sections of the Bible at the same time, so it's more clear the liberties that have been taken.
