John MacArthur, author of the bestseller, Twelve Ordinary Men, focuses on extraordinary women in the Bible to demonstrate how God can use both men and women in mighty ways for His kingdom. You will be challenged and motivated by this poignant and personal look into the lives of some of the Bible's most faithful women. Twelve Extraordinary Women is a compelling chronicle of the lives and faith of Scripture's most notable women. You'll find spiritual lessons drawn directly from the trials and successes of Jesus' ancestors and earliest followers. Many of these women were ordinary, common, and in some cases shockingly low-caste, yet each was made extraordinary by her life-changing encounter with God.
