Seven Women by Eric Metaxas




Seven Women is a collection of brief biographies. The women include among others Joan of Arc, Corrie ten Boom, Rosa Parks and Mother Theresa. It's a tidy collection of information on the seven women included. If you've never read anything on them it's even a good starting point.
I enjoyed the chronological order of the book and seeing how the women prepared the way for one another through t heir lives and actions. Some of the biographies, Hannah More and Mother Maria of Paris in particular, get a bit bogged down. I think it's safe to say that's because of Metaxas' personal affection for their stories. My favorite may have been Joan of Arc as I learned the most about her life.
Overall, it's a collection worth picking up for quick reference on any of the seven women featured.
