“This might be the best book you read this year.” -Karen Swallow Prior, author of Booked and Fierce Convictions
What Makes a Great Woman Great?
In his eagerly anticipated follow-up to the enormously successful Seven Men, New York Times #1 best-selling author Eric Metaxas tells the captivating stories of seven women who changed the course of history.
Joan of Arc, Susanna Wesley, Hannah More, Maria Skobtsova, Corrie ten Boom, Rosa Parks, and Mother Teresa — each of these world-changing figures follows the call placed on her life, doing so with remarkable feminine dignity. Teenaged Joan of Arc heard God’s command and led the French army to a mighty victory over the British. Hannah More played a crucial role in the abolition of slavery in the British Empire. Corrie ten Boom risked her life to hide Dutch Jews from the Nazis in World War II and somehow survived the horrors of a concentration camp, but her greatest feat was her forgiveness her tormentors years later. And Rosa Parks’s God-given sense of justice and unshakable dignity helped launch the twentieth century’s greatest social movement.
Writing in his trademark conversational and engaging style, Eric Metaxas reveals how these seven extraordinary women achieved greatness, inspiring readers to lives guided by a call beyond themselves.
“It’s the rare male who can portray women so vividly. After his books on Wilberforce and Bonhoeffer, Eric Metaxas proves he’s one of the rare ones with his new book Seven Women.”
– Kathie Lee Gifford, Emmy Award-winning host of The Today Show
“Eric Metaxas offers a refreshing view of womanhood as he holds up a plumbline by which we can all measure ourselves. Faith strengthened by fire, courage to forsake personal comfort, boldness to take great risks, sacrificial compassion for others, convictions to live…and die…by, are just some of the common denominators of Seven Women.”
– Anne Graham Lotz, author and speaker
“Some authors give us words that are delicious to read. Others provide content that is good and necessary. Eric Metaxas consistently brings us the rare gift of both at the same time.”
– Twila Paris, singer-songwriter and author
“What we have in Seven Women is a great biographer, Eric Metaxas, writing, with his inimitable genius for depicting moral greatness, about the lives of seven great women.”
– Dennis Prager, nationally syndicated radio talk show host and columnist, New York Times bestselling author
“Eric Metaxas’s ability to engage readers through the lives of these seven women will not only empower you, but will ignite a fire in you to know that we as human beings all have the power to impact the world.”
– April Hernandez Castillo, film and television actress and speaker
“Metaxas’s beautifully-written book answers the question: how can you change the world? The answer: find seven women, turn them loose, and watch Satan tremble in their presence.”
– Owen Strachan, author, The Colson Way
“The women Eric chose gave me more energy than any protein shake. This book will be required reading for my four daughters.”
– Carolyn Copeland, Broadway producer, Amazing Grace: The Musical
“Eric Metaxas writes Seven Women with a tender brotherly love – both in his admiration and gratitude for the women he profiles and with his challenge, to men not to overlook this book and a culture to reconsider its view of women’s greatness.”
– Kathryn Jean Lopez, senior fellow, National Review Institute
“I was one of those who hoped Eric would write Seven Women, not only because I loved Seven Men but because I knew it would be a book I would want my daughters to read.”
– John Stonestreet, President, Colson Center for Christian Worldview
“In these deftly written accounts, Eric Metaxas reminds us why each of these unforgettable women delivered such a bracing challenge to the spirit of their age, why each represents a unique profile in courage.”
– Joseph Loconte, professor at The King’s College and author of A Hobbit, a Wardrobe, and a Great War
