By Noël Piper

... Show All

These are the stories of five ordinary women-Sarah Edwards, Lilias Trotter, Gladys Aylward, Esther Ahn Kim, and Helen Roseveare-who trusted in their extraordinary God as he led them to do great things for his kingdom. Noël Piper holds up their lives and deeds as examples of what it means to be truly faithful. Learning about these women will challenge readers to make a difference for Christ in their families, in the church, and throughout the world.

"A fine work of drawing the reader into the historical and spiritual life of these early pioneer missionaries. Well worth reading as a family."
Lars and Elisabeth Gren (Elliot)

"Noël Piper tells the stories of five women whose lives declare something we have almost forgotten-what it means to be a Christian. May the influence of this book cause that awareness to burn brightly again in our generation!"
Ray and Jani Ortlund, President and Executive Vice President, Renewal Ministries

"I highly recommend this book as one of the great sagas of missionaries and Christian biography."
David M. Howard Jr., Professor of Old Testament, Bethlehem College & Seminary; author, The Structure of Psalms 93–100; coeditor, The Psalms: Language for All Seasons of the Soul and Reading the Psalms Theologically

"We live in a Christian subculture that can intimidate women from stepping out in faithful risk-taking for God. Noël Piper challenges all of us to move away from intimidation to imitation: 'Remember your leaders . . . imitate their faith' (Hebrews 13:7)."
Dr. Rick and Fran LoveDr. Rick Love, Intl. Director, Frontiers, and Fran Love, editor of Longing to Call Them Sisters: Ministry to Muslim Women
