God Himself made a covenant with His people and throughout the ages He has remained perfectly faithful to His covenant promises. Just as the women of the Bible experienced His faithfulness, so can believers today.

The matriarchs of the faith left a legacy of timeless truth for the women who would follow. God led such incredible women as Deborah, Rebekah, Miriam and Hannah through life experiences that now offer great wisdom for the Christian life. Women of the Covenant explores the stories of eight women from Scripture.

The authors also include contemporary faith stories from their experiences. These unique testimonies show meaningful application of the scriptural truth explored in each lesson. This eight-lesson study includes questions for individual preparation and group discussion.

God's inspired Word includes stories of real people--with both failures and victories--that point to the redeeming work of God, experienced today through Jesus Christ. Women of the Covenant is a spiritual journey for women who carry on the legacy of faith.

Good in Small group

User Review  - Jill W - Christianbook.com

Lots of women in the Bible that the ladies in our small group have never heard of or heard little of. Good practical applications, as well. The only complaint is that some of the fonts used are hard for the elderly women in our group to read. Especially the italics. Read full review
