    1. Have you ever tried to read your favorite Sunday school stories recently? Believe me, you will get a rude awakening. I did when I read the story of David and Goliath for my son. I was shocked at how glossed over the David of children's book was.RememberNoah was a drunkard, Abraham a coward, Sarah vengeful, Rahab a prostitute, Jephthah murdered his daughter, and David an adulterer and murderer. Jonah was a selfish sadistic reluctant preacher. Rebekah was a cunning divisive woman.You would think t [...]

    2. This book challenges expectations and assumptions – growing and stretching the reader’s notions of history, the church, and legacies left behind.As promised in the introduction, this work is definitely no sugar-coated look at an interesting collection of women from the church’s history. At the same time however, the author is neither condemning nor gossipy in her overview of each individual. This is a great example of a straightforward, honest look deeper beneath the surface of each woman, [...]

    3. I received this book via a giveaway and was excited to read about what I expected to be some of the overlooked figures of church history (woman).While I was hit disappointed in that assumption, I was disappointed in the tone and assumptions of Tucker. She clearly expected her audience to be female and said as much, which I found off-putting. At times, her writing lacked clarity or betrayed a flippancy I found inappropriate to the subject.I knew before I started reading that Tucker and I disagre [...]

    5. I enjoyed this book, and learned a lot. I do not agree with all the conclusions that the author made about the women presented in the book. I do like the fact that the author doesn't gloss over the faults of the women she highlights. I believe it is important to be fully honest about our good qualities as well as our bad.

    6. The book was very inspirational and I enjoyed reading. So many things in the book I did not know. Learned many things. I was truly inspired by these women.

    7. Tucker reminds me of the Speaker for the Dead in the Ender’s Game trilogy: here, she writes about heroines of the Christian faith without any sentimental glossing over of their flaws or failures. I appreciated learning about women I’ve never heard about. Triumphs, failed marriages, courageous risks, mental illness, universalism, contributions to missions all give a whole picture of each woman’s life and journey of faith.
