Preaching the Women of the Old Testament:
Who They Were and Why They Matter
Women played an important role in the Old Testament. However, their stories are often untold both in the classroom and from the pulpit. Lynn Japinga explores the stories of over forty fierce, faithful, strong and often unnamed women featured in the Old Testament, including Eve, Rebekah, Dinah, Tamar, Miriam, Deborah, Jael, Abigail, Bathsheba, and Vashti. Along with providing an interpretation of their stories, Japinga demonstrates how each woman's story has been read in Christian tradition, contrasting different and often toxic interpretations, and connects each story to various contemporary issues. This unique resource is ideal--not only for pastors who want to know more about the many women of the Old Testament and how to better incorporate them in to their sermons--but also for anyone who wants to know more about these often overlooked and misrepresented women.
Includes sermon ideas with accompanying chapter text suggestions, as well as an index of names and scripture references.
