Successful Women Of The Bible – Book Review

Successful Women Of The Bible

Successful Women Of The Bible by Katara Washington Patton – Book Review

Do you enjoy learning about the people that God placed in the Bible to inspire us, encourage us and educate us on what to do and not to do, based on the examples they’ve set in their lives?

Are you particularly interested in learning more about the women in the Bible – women who faced struggles and adversity throughout their lives, but learned to overcome the challenges that were set before them by following God?

If so, you will want to add Successful Women Of The Bible by Katara Washington Patton to your reading list!

Successful Women Of The Bible contains the profiles of the following women, based on the narratives about them in the Bible as well as the author’s personal commentary:

  • Miriam
  • Deborah
  • Hagar
  • Esther
  • Daughters of Zelophehad
  • Mary and Martha
  • Lois and Enice
  • Mary Magdalene
  • Priscilla
  • Lydia

What I really like about this book is how Katara makes each of the women she portrays come to life and relates their stories to us in such a relevant and powerful way. For instance, in Esther, we are cautioned not to judge others based on their appearance or to rely on our appearance to get us through life.

Katara writes:

We are not called to this life to simply live comfortably in the palace and soak up all of the luxuries we can afford. Are you willing to follow Esther’s example and risk your comfort to help someone else – especially someone without a voice?

Esther is a shining example of all we have to gain when we do step out in faith and muster the courage to use our position for the good of others.

Successful Women Of The Bible is a great book for mothers and their teenage daughters to read and discuss together, as well as for women’s groups, book clubs and Bible study groups to share!

I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.

  4. Hi, my friend. It’s been a while since I stopped by your corner of the web and I’m so glad I did today. Katara’s book sounds inspiring — I especially like the excerpt you chose about Esther because it’s not the typical lesson that we think about when we talk about Esther. It sounds like a great book to read together with my daughter — thanks for the great idea!
    Sending you hugs across the waves,
