Get wisdom, get understanding ... Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. -- Proverbs 4:5-7 In this new edition of a classic of women's Bible study, beloved Christian author Edith Deen brings to life the stories of more than fifty biblical women and shows the lessons contemporary women can learn from each one. The culmination of a quarter century of study, Wisdom from Women in the Bible provides firsthand insight on how the women of the Bible dealt with both the everyday topics of marriage, home, possessions, children, and widowhood; and the eternal themes of spiritual awareness, love, worship, and faith. Represented here are the women whose wisdom shines like a beacon down through the ages: Mary, Ruth, Esther, and Deborah. But we can also learn from the wicked and the foolish -- Eve, Delilah, Jezebel, and Lot's wife -- the ones whose faults lead all too often to destruction. In engaging and perceptive portraits, Deen reintroduces us to women who reflect our own weaknesses and potential for greatness, our petty jealousies and soaring prayers. She then applies each story to modern life, firmly outlining its meaning for our time. The result is a book both classic and contemporary, inspirational and practical. "So I send this book forth with the hope that it will inspire a deeper study of the Bible and that it will help others gain a new wisdom and understanding in handling their daily problems. This is one of the wonders of the Bible. Any theme one chooses turns out to be contemporary." -- from the Preface
