Is there something about being a woman that transcends time and culture? This revised and updated version of Daughters of Eve: Seeing Ourselves in Women of the Bible examines both beloved and little-known heroines of the Bible. As you learn about them, you may be surprised at what you learn about yourself.
Many of the issues these women faced are issues of urgent importance to women today. Although much has changed since the first woman walked the earth, one fact remains the same: being a woman is as challenging as it ever was. Come discover the uniqueness of womanhood, and, in that, the things that still unite us as daughters of Eve after all these years.
