Bible Characters Series, Book #1


Have you noticed that all Bible writers were men? Often these men gave little information on women. I’ve come to suspect that the Bibles dearth of information on women was because male Scripture writers had little insight into what women felt or thought. Their lack of understanding made it hard for them to interpret women’s behavior. Perhaps, male Bible writers couldn’t recognize either a woman’s power or influence.


Roth averred, “This book is so not about bad girls of the Bible!” Nor, is it another alphabetical review of all women named in the Bible. Rather, Out of the Shadows, Exposing the power of Bible women shows that Bible women were just that— powerful and influential. Through reading this book, women become proud of their biblical women ancestors and reclaim their own power and influence.

 

 

I enjoyed reading this book. It gave me great insight into the power and influence women uses to achieve their goals (some for good, some not) during biblical times. God empowered women with the ability to influence others for His glory. We should use this influence to encourage others for good in a Godly manner. But just like the woman in biblical times, we all fall short. However, it is each woman’s responsibility to use this ability for His glory and as Christians we should make it our goal. Thank you Dana for giving the book to me.

This is the best book yet about the women of the Bible. Dr. Roth is a true scholar and knows not just scripture itself, but he background during which it was written. I highly recommend this book.

Dr. Fred Eichelman

“This book has really brought new meaning to women of the Bible. Scripture was written by men. Men have no idea what women think or feel. They had power and influence and still do. Eve was not with Adam when God told Adam not to eat of the tree of life and knowledge. Eve was the one that gathered to feed her family. She wanted power and knowledge. She did not know the outcome of the forbidden fruit. Meaning of influence and power . Eve had both. Zezebel, two, one in the Old testament and one in the New testament. Both were a negative influence with power. Mary, mother of Jesus, she came from the shadows. I am sure she had no idea of her power or influence she would give. I will seek knowledge, from my Bible. Seeking the holy spirit hoping to share a positive model as Dr. Roth speaks of in this book. I will refer to the book in the future. Dr. Roth has given another network for women exposing the power of Bible women. God expects women to be a powerful influence. I only touched on the terminology, history and resources. Read for comparison share with your network of relationships.”

 “The stories of women in the Bible are like stones in a river. They have been there all along; however, they may be seen more clearly through the author’s portrayal in this book. The women’s stories are stepping stones to the reader’s greater understanding of legal, moral, and ethical behavior; in turn, this insight can help to develop positive leadership traits.”
