Six months ago Eric Metasas wrote a set of biographies based on the lives of 7 Men who influenced not only their own generation, but continue to influence ours. Earlier this month, he did the same for seven significant women.
The seven women chosen to review are
- Joan of Arc
- Susanna Wesley
- Hannah More
- Saint Maria of Paris
- Corrie ten Boom
- Rosa Parks
- Mother Teresa
The format of the biographies are similar to those used in the earlier book except that in the earlier book each chapter concluded with a summary of the significance of each man chosen for review. In the current book, the biographical sketch concludes with a few paragraphs on the later influence of each woman on society. The stories are worth the time spent reading and reflecting on them. Beside being great devotional material for all believers, they could also support the pastor looking for material to illustrate weekly sermons. The two books are recommended for all looking to examine the life of Christians who have effected the world they were called to serve.
