What You Can Learn from 22 Women Who Challenged Tradition, Fought Injustice and Dared to Lead
Become one of the gifted, empowered women God is raising up.
Christian women are often led to believe they were created inferior to men, destined to play a secondary role. Proverbs 31 gets morphed into a judgment, the sole standard against which many feel like frauds or failures. But the Bible has much more to say about women!
Looking into the lives of 22 mold-breaking women of the Bible, bestselling author and women’s advocate J. Lee Grady shows that God enables His daughters for amazing–even impossible–exploits. Lee also reveals the empowering, often-overlooked gifts God gives each of His daughters–gifts like wisdom, fruitfulness, boldness and leadership. When women accept and use these gifts, they can live the fearless and beautiful lives of purpose God has ordained for them.

Fearless Daughters of the Bible has been on my to-read list for almost three years. I’ve picked it up several times and started to read only to be pulled away easily. Fearless Daughters of the Bible isn’t an easy book to read. It rips at your heart and searches you. It’s a don’t miss read, but that doesn’t make it an easy read!
In Fearless Women of the Bible the author gives us indisputable evidence of God’s plan for and use of women. He does this using not only Scriptural references, but also historical accounts and modern day examples.
It’s so easy to follow and understand God’s path for women when reading Fearless Women of the Bible, you’ll wonder why anyone ever thought we wouldn’t be used for His purposes.
