Women of Faith and Courage Reviews
This book shows how God can use ordinary women, for His glory, in different Missional situations. They were frail, at times:"I cannot walk now, nor dare do anything to trifle with my health, which is very queer now and then, but if the roads are easy gradient of course the those already made, I can get four wheels made and set a box on them, and the children can drive me about ...", They were poor and often penniless yet because they knew that they were living in God's will, they were confident that their needs would be met.I enjoyed this book, the first that I have read by Vance Christie; I have gained considerable knowledge about these five women, who were obedient to God's call, yet it lacked something for me, too. At times, I felt that I was reading a list of researched facts and would have appreciated a little more detail and description of feelings, reactions etc of the characters as on finishing the book, I knew a vast amount about the characters but did not REALLY know them.
So far, I really enjoy reading about Fanny Crosby and Mary Slessor. I had heard about Fanny Crosby before and love it. I never had heard of Mary Slessor, and I love her devotion for His Glory as a missionary in Africa. I haven't gotten to Corrie Ten Boom yet in this book, but I have heard of her and looking forward to learn more about her. I have read about Susanna Wesley and Catherine Booth which I have heard of before, but I was disappointed in that. There were things that didn't make sense to me at all. Today I finish reading Corrie Ten Boom and love it!I gave this 3 stars due to the fact I was disappointed in Susanna Wesley and Catherine Booth which wasn't clear or didn't make sense to me at all. Thankful for those two ladies, but I didn't understand something about them.
The five short biographies in this book were very well-written, concise, and interesting. I feel like I've learned as much about these five women as I would have if I had read a lengthy biography on each one. I definitely recommend this if you'd like to learn about these wonderful women.
I just started this book yesterday and I'm already over half way done. I'm really enjoying the book, I infact often wish the author went into more detail on the lives of these ladies.
Great subject matter, poor writing. I want to be Mary Slessor when I grow up.
