Seven Women: And the Secret of Their Greatness
In this highly anticipated follow-up to the enormously successful Seven Men, New York Times bestselling author Eric Metaxas gives us seven captivating portraits of some of the greatest women who ever lived, each of whom changed the course of history by following God’s call upon their lives—now in paperback.
Each of the world-changing figures who stride across these pages—Joan of Arc, Susanna Wesley, Hannah More, Sister Maria of Paris, Corrie ten Boom, Rosa Parks, and Mother Teresa—is an exemplary model of true womanhood. Learn integrity and courage from the stories of heroines like
- Teenaged Joan of Arc, who followed God’s call and liberated her country, dying a heroic martyr’s death;
- Susanna Wesley, who had nineteen children and gave the world its most significant evangelist and its greatest hymn writer, her sons John and Charles;
- Corrie ten Boom, who was arrested for hiding Dutch Jews from the Nazis and survived the horrors of a concentration camp, astonishing the world by forgiving her tormentors; and
- Rosa Parks, whose deep sense of justice and unshakable dignity and faith helped launch the twentieth-century’s greatest social movement.
Writing in his trademark conversational and engaging style, Eric Metaxas reveals how the extraordinary women profiled here achieved their greatness, inspiring readers to lives guided by a call beyond themselves.
