50 Women Every Christian Should Know—Book Review

What a delightful book!  Every chapter is like reader candy.

Even though I grew up in a Christian family, I was surprised how many of these women I did not know.  The wide range of interests and the expanse of centuries guarantee that everyone will find a faith heroine somewhere in these pages.

As soon as it came, I could hardly wait to put my feet up and read about my favorite woman in the book: Edith Schaeffer, the wife of Francis Schaeffer and co-founder of L’Abri.  She has been one of my faith heroines for over thirty years.

But I found myself reading “Just one more” chapter, and “just one more” until well past the bed-time of an organized, disciplined woman!

Best of all, is the conversational style and personal interest slant that Michelle DeRusha brings her carefully researched information to the page.


If you don’t usually read history, this is the book to introduce the non-fiction genre into your reading repertoire. And the table of contents makes it easy to pick and choose your way through the book—or to refer back to a favorite.

Now, let me get back to read one more chapter-and I’ll set the timer to remind me of bedtime!   rainy day reading
