Overview of 100 Christian Women Who Changed the Twentieth Century

This book shares the life stories of one hundred women who have made a difference -- women who have literally changed the twentieth century. Their lives are a rich tapestry of experiences and backgrounds, vocations and nationalities.

From Twila Paris to Mother Teresa, Amy Carmichael to Joni Eareckson Tada, this collection reveals insights into what enabled dozens of women to bring about change throughout the century -- a fine reference volume that also provides inspiration. As Hosier writes, "My prayer is that as you read these vignettes, you'll be motivated to make the remaining chapters of your life pleasing to God and a blessing to others."

These stories tell of incredible courage, the power of prayer, the wisdom of God -- spiritual truths and practical lessons that show how faith makes a profound difference in how one faces life. Whether you desire real-life examples of faith at work, love to read biographies, or want a reference volume for your library, this book is for you.

Library Journal

As befits a publication from Revell, these biographical sketches have an evangelical slant. Hosier, a prolific author of spiritual titles and biographies, admits that she had no specific selection criteria, and the result is eclectic; entries range from Mother Teresa to Marabel Morgan, Aimee Semple McPherson to Anita Bryant, Susan B. Anthony to Kathy Lee Gifford. The sketches, which vary from fewer than 200 words to seven pages in length, emphasize the role of faith in each woman's life and are organized into eight categories covering writing, education, entertainment, literature, business and politics, mission work, evangelism and ministry, and motherhood. A brief bibliography identifies the sources used in compiling the entries. While the tone is one of praise rather than objective analysis, this work makes a significant contribution in identifying women who are frequently omitted from standard reference texts. Recommended for large public libraries and women's studies collections.--Jan Blodgett, Davidson Coll. Lib., NC Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
