Since the beginning of time, women have lived with single motherhood, domestic violence and abandonment. There also have been women who have defied the status quo by teaching, leading and working with men. This Bible study discussion book, for women and men, lends support to women in these roles and provides models for issues affecting contemporary women. Hidden Voices offers a fresh, inspiring look at the stories of women in the Bible, how Jesus treated women, and the difficult passages concerning the role of women.
This Bible study discussion book is a dense primer on women in the Bible, particularly on the difficult passages concerning the role of women. It lends support to women in Christian leadership roles and provides models for issues affecting women.
