Women Prophets of the Old Testament (Paperback)
The Old Testament, or Hebrew Scriptures, has been a source of spiritual inspiration for hundreds of millions of believers throughout the ages. Center stage in the Old Testament is a body of literature by and about the prophets--messengers of God who tried to keep God's people on the right path. You know their names--Elijah, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel, Ezekiel--or do you? Are you acquainted with Deborah, Huldah, Miriam and Noadiah? For far too long, the women prophets have never been accorded the respect and attention they deserve, but they delivered God's messages with the same passion, commitment and urgency as the men. This book is written to acknowledge and celebrate them--and put the women--the prophetesses--on the pedestal they deserve to occupy.
