9780060618520: All of the Women of the Bible: 316 Concise Biographies

All the women of the Bible offers a rich biographical perspective on evey female figure in scripture -- including the famous, the little-known, and even the unnamed. In more that 300 engaging and insightful portraits, Edith Deen brings alive the saints and sorceresses, queens and servants, mothers and daughters, wives and widows whose profound influence is felt through-out the Bible. - You can almost trace light and darkness in the Bible by the women themselves - she writes. - Hannah, praying mother of Samuel, gave birth to a son who became the first great Hebrew prophet. And, of course, there was the mother of Jesus. On the other hand, Jezebel and Herodias were vile influences, the first tearing apart the northern kingdom of Israel, the second causing John the Baptist to be beheaded. Combining thorough detail with a lively and dramatic narrative, All of the Women of the Bible portrays the real women behind the Biblical stories and shows how, in their human struggles and triumphs, they are very much like the women of today. With each major biography identified by Bible chapter and verse and prefaced by a key passage of scripture, this is an ideal resources for teachers, Bible students, preachers, and writers, as well as anyone who wants to learn what it was really like to be a woman in Biblical times.

Book Description HarperOne, 1988. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "New York Times" bestselling relationship expert Maggie Scarf shares in-depth stories of seven remar-ried couples--revealing the unique challenges they face as they strive to achieve lasting intimacy and familial harmony. It's estimated that 40 percent of new marriages in the US are remarriages, but the survival rate of second marriages is alarmingly low. Many remar-rying couples set out with a sense of optimism, a belief that this marriage will usher in a life of happiness and family unity--but complicated family dynamics can often strain new partnerships to the breaking point. The challenges of remarriage are pervasive, but little guidance has existed until now. Based on more than a decade of candid, revela-tory interviews, "The Remarriage Blueprint" provides a crucial explanation of the obstacles to remarriage and the secrets to overcoming them. Maggie Scarf, a consummate relationship expert, plumbs the everyday workings of shared life to illuminate the emotional preconceptions, social pressures, and perpetuated fantasies that confound remarriage. Through cautionary tales and stories of hope, Scarf offers guidance for handling everything from children who reject the new family dynamic to the thorny issue of money. Loaded with practical wisdom and searing accounts, "The Remarriage Blueprint" is a definitive road map to a happy, thriving, inte-grated household. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0060618523
