Women were an integral part of Jesus' life and ministry as described in all four Gospels, and they are integral to the life of the church wherever Christianity has spread. In whatever position they found themselves, whether queens or slaves, they lived for their Saviour and sought to bring others to Him. Her-Story brings together well-known names, such as Fanny Crosby and Joni Eareckson Tada to lesser known Christians from across the centuries, in 366 devotions. The recurring theme - their love for Jesus.
Her-Story provides a daily walk with Christian women from the 1st century to our present day. But as the reader takes this journey, we are ultimately taught and reminded not so much about women, but rather about our great God. – Jane Tooher, Ministry Department, Director of the Priscilla and Aquila Centre, Moore Theological College, Sydney, Australia
