bold bible girls
The architect, the builders and challengers. The persecuted, the traveller, the prophetess and myrrh carrier. The apostle, the visionaries, the activist and the deliverers. Meet them all in the pages of Bold Bible Girls, where Lauren takes you on a journey in to the lives of overlooked Bible girls. With a vision to inspire young girls to see themselves as competent and strong, this book is a blessed gift for the young visionary. Accompanied by a devotional section, this book aims to bring mothers and daughters together, to reflect on the examples and themes in the lives of these Bible girls. This illustrated children’s book brings to life the lesser known girls of the Bible, through biblical accuracy and storytelling.
Shelamzion dreams of living for a cause. As a Maccabean descendant, her family had defeated the Greeks occupying Judea, and had restored the nation’s independence. But her uncle, the king, rules with greed and selfish ambition, isolating her family from the people. An arranged marriage shatters her dreams of purpose and her longing to marry Yaakov, her tutor. Shelamzion watches her husband, the newly crowned king, continue his fathers reign of tyranny. Lines are drawn, civil war spills blood on to Jerusalem’s streets and Shelamzion is faced with personal loss and the desire to rise up and protect her people. But Yahweh has never chosen a queen to rule over Israel before, so will he do it this time?
As a daughter of Israel, Yehudit has always loved and trusted in Yahweh, the God of her people. But personal tragedy and the threat of a mighty enemy pose challenges to her faith. God, however, is with her and will use her in her vulnerability to deliver an entire nation from evil.
Yehudit, Chosen by God is a rare book, a historical Christian romance, a devotional message to women, an egalitarian manifesto, and an invitation to follow Jesus.
