Feminine Threads: Women in the Tapestry of Christian History shares the stories of women who embraced the freedom and power of the Gospel in making their unique contributions to the unfolding of history. Wherever possible, the women here speak for themselves, from their letters, diaries or published works. Stories are ordered chronologically, beginning with women in the new testament era and early church and concluding with the stories of many dear saints who are with us yet today. A suitable read for both men and women, readers will be challenged and inspired by the grace of God demonstrated in these true stories from Christian history.
