Seven Women and the Secret of Their Greatness by Eric Metaxas

| |

According to Eric Metaxas, “there is a great hunger for heroes in our culture.” With clarity and insight, he relatesthe stories of Joan of Arc, Susanna Wesley, Hannah More, Saint Maria of Paris, Corrie ten Boom, Rosa Parks, and Mother Teresa—ordinary yet heroic women who followed God’s call on their lives and achieved greatness rooted in Christ-like service.

The seven women responded to different situations in various historical periods, seeking justice, caring for poor and hungry people, fighting political oppression, and raising godly children who influenced Christendom. Each woman’s life in some way echoed the sentiment of Saint Maria of Paris, who said, “Christ gave the whole world to the Church, and she has no right to renounce its spiritual edification and transfiguration.” (Thomas Nelson)
