Praise for the Print Edition

What a neat little book! In an age where there is so much discussion about the role of women in the Church and the world, Stacy Mitch tackles an even more fundamental question: the irreplaceable but sometimes forgotten role of women in the history of salvation. Courageous Women outlines that story in a simple, straightforward, and stimulating way. With interactive tools such as reflection questions, memory verses, and a leader’s guide, Courageous Women will be especially popular for small group study and discussion. Courageous Women should be part of your library—you’ll turn to it more than once.

—Most Rev. Thomas J. Tobin, Bishop of Youngstown

Courageous Women is a Bible study that Catholic women will find fascinating. It opens up the lives of Old and New Testament women who, in an amazing assortment of circumstances, faced the challenge of living by faith. It unfolds their stories within the context of salvation history, so that its lessons are not only about how these women lived with God but also about the whole drama of Scripture itself. Thoughtful, practical, and well-written, Courageous Women is sure to be treasured by all who use it.

Gayle Somers, coauthor, Galatians: A New Kind of Freedom Defended

I found Stacy Mitch’s insights new and enlightening. The human and supernatural aspects of the women in the Bible are presented in such a way that the reader has a real sense and appreciation of the difficulties these virtuous women went through and how God worked through them to draw the big picture of salvation history. The examples she illustrates are truly inspiring. Courageous Women is a must read for the Catholic woman of today.

—Rev. Emilio Diaz-Torre, L.C.
