Wounded Women Of The Bible – Book Review
Have you ever experienced a hurt that ran so deep, you didn’t feel that anything could ever stop the pain? Have you ever found yourself in a desperate situation with no way out?
If so, you’re not alone.
In Wounded Women Of The Bible – Finding Hope When Life Hurts, Dena Dyer and Tina Samples have gathered the stories of a number of wounded women in the Bible who are dealing with issues that are surprisingly similar to ours – and used their stories as navigational tools to help us through the dark passages in our lives.
Quite frankly, this book is amazing!
In Wounded Women Of The Bible, the authors re-tell the stories of more than a dozen biblical women who have suffered from every type of hurt possible – and they bring those women’s stories to life in a way that contemporary women can understand. They approach each woman’s story with honesty, transparency, and sensitivity. When necessary, the authors share their own stories as well.
At the end of the book is a wonderful Study Guide to help you fully explore each wounded woman’s story.
No matter where the stories begin, however, the authors are always waiting to lead us to a safe place – back to The Great Physician who can heal us – back to the loving God who sees us and is with us even in our darkest moments.
The authors write:
For each of us, there will be a moment God speaks – through his word or through someone else. He will send us help and hope. He will give us a choice to either move forward or stay sunken in our great despair…
There are wounds we will face due to our circumstances. It may feel as if our circumstances will be the death of us, but they will not. We will feel like the widow of Zarephath – despairing and defeated. But hope is waiting. God is waiting.
Wounded Women Of The Bible is one of the most relevant and deeply personal Bible studies I’ve read in a long time! This book is must have for every woman’s bookshelf – and is one that I plan to keep on hand for quite some time to come!
