    1 thought on “Eight Women of Faith”

    1. Not so much about what they did that was so impactful, rather how these ladies were faithful to Christ in challenging times. Learned a few historical things that are helpful to remembering what was going on during these ladies' lifetime.

    2. A wonderful collection of short biographies, highlighting women whose lives demonstrated their claim to faith.

    3. What do the likes of Jane Austen, Esther and Sarah Edwards, Lady Jane Grey have in common? The book Eight Women of Faith by Michael A.G. Haykin. It is important. As a Christian woman that loves church history and stories of faith and has a burgeoning love for theology and getting acquainted with our church fathers I often think about the women that stood in the pages of our faith history with resolve and dignity. How many stories of women of faith are there that we will never know but that have [...]

    4. This book was short and sweet. It's worth reading especially since we Reformed people forget how God works and has worked through women.Sidenote: I never knew Jane Austin was a Christian, by her own confession.

    5. Eight Women of Faith by Michael A. G. Haykin is a series of essays about different women of faith between 1537 and 1826 and how they ministered to the church in their time. Karen Swallow Prior asserts in her forward to the book that we tend to focus on the one thing that women cannot do and even use that to suppress them in other ways, instead of celebrating and encouraging the many things they can do, and this book is an attempt to highlight a few of the many ways women can be used by God.After [...]

    6. A Different Kind of WomanA favorite Elisabeth Elliot quote comes to mind whenever I overhear fragments of the ongoing row about the role of women in the church:“I am not a different kind of Christian because I am a woman, but I am, most certainly, a different kind of woman because I am a Christian.”Since ten of the twenty-seven believers commended by Paul for faithfulness in the early church at Rome were women, it is no surprise that women continued to fulfill roles of influence and responsi [...]

    7. A readable little series of vignettes about eight Christian women—Jane Grey, Margaret Baxter, Anne Dutton, Sarah Edwards, Anne Steele, Esther Edwards Burr, Ann Judson, and Jane Austen—who lived and left their mark on the world during the 16th to 19th centuries. Although his chapters are short, Haykin is generous in scope, picking women with varying roles and vocations, such as queen, wife, hymn writer, author, and missionary. I'd call this a good place to start if you want a basic overview o [...]

    8. Short biographies of eight women from the 1500s-1800s who left legacies of Christian faith in their conduct, writings, or writings of others. Each chapter looks at the woman, gives a quick overview of her life, and then looks at primary sources that indicate an area in which she left a great legacy as a Christian woman whether it be as an apologist like Jane Grey or hymn writer like Anne Steele. The women included are: Jane Grey, Margaret Baxter, Anne Dutton, Sarah Edwards, Anne Steele, Esther E [...]

    9. I wanted to love this book. I really did. Once I started in on the first chapter, in fact, I thought, “Yippee – this is going to be good.” The first chapter was. The others were just ok. The chapter on Ann Judson was focused, it seemed, more on her change from paedobaptism to baptist without much support as to her (and her husband’s) reasoning behind the change.I wasn’t bowled over by the chapter on Sarah Edwards – a women with much to write about and the chapter on Jane Austen was w [...]

    10. I enjoyed this book a lot and it made me want to read more biographies. I was especially fascinated reading about Margaret Baxter, as there are some parallels between her life and mine. I appreciated how the author wove historical context into each woman's story. The only downside was the author's strong Baptist bias in the chapter on Ann Judson (and since I'm Reformed Presbyterian, I obviously differ with him).

    11. Haykin's novel was a quick and inspirational read that concisely shows the lives of 8 women. The selection of quotes was well balanced with other material. The historical context comprised about half of each woman's section with the second half being primarily devoted to their faith. While by no means intensive, the book is a quick and easy to read insight into these women's lives.

    12. The first chapter on Jane Grey was very interesting and gave me high hopes for the rest of the book, but most of the rest of the book was hard to get through.

    13. Talk about an inspiring read. The only negative thing I can say about this book is that I wish it were longer. Each woman Michael Haykin discussed had such an unwavering, strong faith in the person of Jesus and the work he completed on the cross that set them a part. It wasn't their outside beauty, which some of these women are said to have possessed, or their ability to fall in line and do as they are told or what was culturally appropriate at that time that made them worthy of mention in this [...]

    14. I'm glad I read this book as it was awesome to learn about some of these women that I didn't know before and learn of their deep faith and impact in the world. However, I wanted it to be better. The storytelling was underwhelming and the author often focused on smaller or less-significant details. A few of them were great though!

    15. Enjoyed reading this book about eight women of faith and their contributions to the church. A quick read that is educational and enjoyable, this book would make an excellent family read aloud for children and adults. Of these eight vignettes, I especially enjoyed the story of Esther Edwards Burr and her unique history (the mother of Aaron Burr who infamously shot Alexander Hamilton.) A worthwhile book of which we certainly could use more. I received this book at no cost from Crossway in exchange [...]

    16. it was a interesting read, was shock about some of the things reading it. Like i didn't know Jane Gray lived at bradget manor. It not a book that you would read in one go. It a book that you read in bits and bobs. That why it took me two days to read otherwise for 160 pages it would take me about an hour or less, depending on how I feel.

    17. The chapters on Lady Jane Grey, Ann Judson, and Jane Austen are excellent and make this book well worth your time. (The other five sketches are so-sot really anything new or profound.)
