In this highlyÂ anticipated follow-up to the enormously successfulÂ Seven Men,Â New York TimesÂ bestselling author Eric Metaxas gives us seven captivating portraits of some of historyâs greatest women, each of whom changed the course of history by following Godâs call upon their livesânow in paperback.Â
Each of the world-changing figures who stride across these pagesâJoan of Arc, Susanna Wesley, Hannah More,Â Sister Maria of Paris, Corrie ten Boom, Rosa Parks, and Mother Teresaâis an exemplary model of true womanhood. Teenaged Joan of Arc followed Godâs call and liberated her country, dying a heroic martyrâs death. Susanna Wesley had nineteen children and gave the world its most significant evangelist and its greatest hymn writer, her sons John and Charles. Corrie ten Boom, arrested for hiding Dutch Jews from the Nazis, survived the horrors of a concentration camp to astonish the world by forgiving her tormentors. And Rosa ParksâsÂ deep sense of justice and unshakable dignity and faith helped launch the twentieth-centuryâs 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.
