Women are an essential element in church history. Just as Deborah, Esther and the New Testament Marys helped shape Bible history, so the women of the Reformed church have helped to make its history great.
In this book, Rebecca VanDoodewaard introduces readers to twelve sixteenth-century women who are not as well known today as contemporaries like Katie Luther and Lady Jane Grey. Providing an example to Christians today of strong service to Christ and His church, these influential, godly women were devoted to Reformation truth, and in many cases provided support for their husbands, practiced hospitality, and stewarded their intellectual abilities.
"Few accessible works exist on the heroines of the Reformation, so I read these biographies with the desire to learn. But I walked away with more than learning; I was challenged and inspired. I have new heroes of the faith, and so will every Christian who reads this wonderful collection." - Jason Helopoulos, Associate Pastor, University Reformed Church, Lansing, Michigan
