Wounded Women of the Bible

Imploding relationships, incapacitating losses, injurious personal mistakes, or spiritual failures—whatever the issue, the wounds are the same.
Whether it’s a lapse in judgment by Bathsheba or the moral failure of the women’s ministry leader in your local church; the spiritual insensitivity of Martha or the compulsive obsessions of your church’s care circle chairwoman; the terror of an abandoned single mother like Hagar or the struggling single mother in your prayer group—the time and circumstances are different, but the wounds are equally deep and spiritually devastating.
Dena Dyer and Tina Samples get it. They have their own stories of pain before healing—along with similar experiences of their families and friends. Offering more than pat affirmations or vicarious shoulders to cry on, Dena and Tina delve deep into the shared emotions and injuries that women of all ages have in common—and move readers toward the recovery and healing that only God can provide.
No matter what hurts you’ve experienced, Wounded Women of the Bible proves that God understands and that healing is not only His intention but His delight!
This is a book not to be missed!

This is a wonderful book for women who are hurting in areas of their life.   Basing issues on similarities of circumstances from the women in the Bible, Ms. Dyer and Ms. Samples have given hurting women a way of looking to God through women who have hurt in similar ways long before we were born.  
This book would make a great Bible Study, or a wonderful book to read for those in counseling hurt people.  I enjoyed reading through the book, it is an easy and fast read.

I received this book free from the publisher . I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own.
