While books about the lives of women in church history are abundant, in this book Simonetta Carr focuses on the important questions they asked--relevant both in the past and today. Throughout church history, women like you (single, married, mothers, and grandmothers, with careers both in and outside their homes) have carefully considered theological issues and asked intelligent and penetrating questions, faithfully seeking the answers in Scripture. You will be encouraged through "Food for Thought" sections at the end of each chapter to consider their questions, raise your own, and discuss them with others. Join your sisters from the church of all ages in taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ!

Review quote

"I regularly teach a course on women in church history, and so I was thrilled to see this new volume by Simonetta Carr. Here are many unfamiliar names even for historians with an expertise in church history! Simonetta has recovered a number of great and stirring stories of how God has used gracious and godly women for the good of the church. Highly recommended!" -- Michael A. G. Haykin
