Wounded Women of the Bible ~ Finding Hope When Life Hurts

Wounded Women of the Bible: Finding Hope When Life Hurts by Dena Dyer and Tina Samples is a pretty extraordinary book!  Ms. Dyer and Ms. Samples take on some pretty challenging stuff that most of us would rather avoid.  

The authors share their own deep sorrows along with other stories from women of today and women in the Bible.  They explore the hurts and damage of betrayed friendships,  adultery, abuse, and many more hurts that so many of us have experienced through out our lives. 

Open, honest discussions of the the challenges and hurts we may have faced as well as how God can and does help us heal, draw closer to God and how we can support and help each other through challenging and hurtful times. 

The book is divided into short chapters full of experiences based on biblical women as well as women from today facing the same challenges though maybe through different circumstances. At the back of the book there are questions and study guides for individual review or group discussions.

Wounded Women of the Bible is not a light weight book! It is heady stuff and the information shared is enlightening, educational, practical and rather though provoking.  

I can't wait to re-experience this book with a group of close friends and see where  it takes us!

Many thanks to Kregel Publications for the opportunity to review this book. My thoughts and feelings are an honest reflection of how I felt about this book.
