Book Review: Reformation Women: Sixteenth-Century Figures Who Shaped Christianity's Rebirth

Reformation Women: Sixteenth-Century Figures Who Shaped Christianity's Rebirth by Rebecca VanDoodewaard

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Women are an essential element in church history. Just as Deborah, Esther, and the New Testament Marys helped shape Bible history, so the women of the Reformed church have helped to make its history great.In Reformation Women, Rebecca Vandoodewaard introduces readers to twelve sixteenth-century women who are not as well known today as contemporaries like Katie Luther and Lady Jane Grey. Providing an example to Christians today of strong service to Christ and His church, these influential, godly women were devoted to Reformation truth, in many cases provided support for their husbands, practiced hospitality, and stewarded their intellectual abilities. Their strength and bravery will inspire you, and your understanding of church history will become richer as you learn how God used them to further the Reformation through their work and influence.

My review: 
Reformation Women is about 12 women who may not be very familiar to most people. But they all played an important roll in the Reformation. Rebecca VanDoodewaard has highlighted these women lives well focusing on these women not only as Christians but also as they served as: wife, mother, queen, author, hostess, leader and teacher. Each used their gift to teach us about being a servant. They were faithful, even when it was hard.

This book would make a nice read for any adult and would be a nice addition to any homeschool family library.
