This book focuses on a selected sample of women of faith from the Bible to contemporary times. It addresses how these women have been change agents in multiple facets of life, including in the family, in politics, and in the wider society. While their underlying connection can be seen as their faith in God and their willingness to serve, their vulnerability has also been evident. For the reader seeking to increase his or her faith in God and develop a closer spiritual walk, and for any whose interest lies in recognizing the similarities between biblical times and the present, this review that ranges from Eve through Mother Teresa through Oprah and Malala should be a must-read.
