With the majority of books about church history centering on the lives and accomplishments of men, it is easy for contemporary Christians to forget the vital role that women have played in the history of Christianity. Drawing from journal entries, personal letters, and other historical documents, historian Michael Haykin reminds Christians of women from previous generations who have helped shape the church. This book affords readers deep insights into how women such as Jane Austen, Sarah Edwards, and Anne Steele responded to challenges in society, came to embrace key doctrines, and made crucial contributions to the life of the church.

This book is great (and at a super price too!), it has easy-to-read short chapters and so is ideal for dipping in and out of. It’s fascinating to hear about the faith of women like Lady Jane Grey who we might have first heard of for other reasons. These women's theological knowledge and grasp of doctrine really shone through. It amazed me that they were so knowledgeable when they lived in a time where there were far fewer opportunities for learning compared to today. I thought it was really challenging for us - do we make the most of all the resources and opportunities that are open to us? These women certainly would have!
