Item Description...
Join best-selling author and highly esteemed Bible teacher John MacArthur as he studies the lives and faith of key women from both the Old and New Testaments. Written in the same style as his popular book Twelve Ordinary Men, each chapter includes a biographical summary of the woman along with spiritual lessons drawn from her life. Beginning with an opening chapter about the inclusion of several women in Luke's genealogy of Christ, MacArthur then focuses on the following women in individual chapters: Rahab (Luke 1:3); Ruth (Luke 1:5); Mary, mother of Jesus (Luke 1:36-38); Anna (Luke 2:36-38); Martha and Mary, sisters of Lazarus (Luke 10:38-42); Mary Magdalene (Matt. 27:56-61); the woman at the well (John 4); the poor woman of Luke (21:1-4); Eve (Gen. 3); Sarah (Genesis 11-25); and Hannah (1 Sam. 1-2). The author also considers the seductress described in Proverbs 7 and the faithful woman described in Proverbs 31.

More About John MacArthur

John MacArthur John MacArthur is pastor-teacher of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, as well as author, conference speaker, president of The Master's College and featured teacher with Grace to You, an international radio broadcast. His more than six dozen books have sold millions of copies worldwide and include more than two dozen volumes of The MacArthur New Testament Commentary series.

The son of Jack MacArthur and fifth cousin of U.S. General Douglas MacArthur,[8] John MacArthur attended Bob Jones University before transferring to Los Angeles Pacific College (now Azusa Pacific University). He later obtained his Masters of Divinity from Biola University's Talbot Theological Seminary, in La Mirada, California. He graduated with honors. From 1964 to 1966, he served as an associate pastor at Calvary Bible Church, in Burbank, California and, from 1966 to 1969, as a faculty representative for Talbot Theological Seminary. Then, in 1969, he became the third pastor in the then-short history of the nondenominational Grace Community Church of Sun Valley, California.

His daily radio program, Grace to You, which is now broadcast throughout much of the world, began as an audio recording ministry to provide cassettes of his sermons to listeners. They were first broadcast in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1977.

In 1985, MacArthur became the president of The Master's College (formerly Los Angeles Baptist College), an accredited, four-year, liberal arts Christian college; and, in 1986, he founded The Master's Seminary. MacArthur also received an honorary doctorate from Talbot Theological Seminary[ and an honorary doctorate from Grace Graduate School.

Nearly 43 years after beginning in the pulpit of Grace Community, MacArthur completed one his own life goals of preaching through the entire New Testament on June 5, 2011, at the end of his projected target window, stated the previous January, to finish "some time in the summer."[1] During the same interview, MacArthur projected he would complete his commentary series within another five years, some 35 years after beginning.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Written from a biased male perspective  Jul 21, 2007
I am participating in a small group study of this book and, generally speaking, we have been very disappointed. The author appears to have very specific biases related to women and each chapter reflects that bias. Even if you didn't know who the author is, it is very apparent that he is a male. I have never read a book by a male Christian author with such obviously slanted views about females. As for the part of the title "What He Wants to Do with You", after 7 chapters that has never been addressed other than to be faithful to God and your husband and raise Godly children. Not very helpful to our single sisters or even to men who might be curious about the women in the Bible. The author states he was encouraged to write this book after the success of "Twelve Ordinary Men". It appears that he did so more led by his opinions and bank account than the Holy Spirit. I would not recommend this to anyone. Of dozens of Chrisitian books I have read, this was the least helpful.
MacArthur's bias is clear  Jul 15, 2007
From the moment I discovered that he had crammed the lives of Mary and Martha into a single chapter, I knew much mischief was afoot. Cannot the Mother of God be given her own chapter? Was her life truly that second rate?

Or, can this be chalked up to the common Protestant approach to the discussion of Mary... don't. It will sound too, too, Catholic. Ewwww!

I once read a book by an elderly and faithful Evangelical who opined that he cannot ever recall hearing a sermon on the Blessed Virgin in all of his decades of worship. I guess this embarrassing and insulting phenomenon is alive and well in the Evanelical book writing world too.

What a crying shame.
Great Book!  Jun 28, 2007
This is an excellent book and great resource to female characters of the Bible. I purchased it to supplement a bible study I am leading on "Mary and Martha" and I can't wait to dig deeper into all the characters of the book. I found the authors portrayal both accurate and thought provoking.
Terrific Book for Women  Jun 15, 2007
This is a wonderful book on women in the Bible and the feelings and emotions they probably felt when they experienced the events as stated in the Bible. Then, the author relates these experiences to today's time, which is very helpful and inspirational.
A new Favorite!  Jan 10, 2007
Standing in line at a Family Christian Bookstore, I was fortunate enough to come across John MacArthur's "Twelve Ordinary Men"... It was the first book of his I'd come across, but I immediately bought it. Sure enough, this book "Twelve Extraordinary Women" was a must-read after having read the other.

John MacArthur is an amazing author. I have already purchased three more books of his, and I must say, he makes it so Easy to Understand. He takes the biblical language and has studied it so, that when he's relaying it to you, the reader, it just sinks right in. This book is a wonderful study of 12 amazing women - our ancestors... who loved and adored our Savior, Jesus Christ. And you may be surprised that they were simply women such as ourselves. I truly enjoyed reading this book. And it will remain a part of my own personal library.
