Review of Seven Women



7 Women


In his book, Seven Women and the Secret of Their Greatness, Eric Metaxas writes short biographies of influential women who impacted their respective societies. Each profile is twenty-five to thirty pages in length. Beginning with Joan of Arc and ending with Mother Teresa, Metaxas tells each woman’s story within the historical context of her day. Seven Women is not a critique on religious beliefs or historical viewpoints, but rather tells how each individual’s faith impacted her and how she used it to change the world.

Seven Women is interesting and informative. Metaxas takes an objective view of each woman’s faith and allows her to speak for herself through her own writing, refusing to insert himself into the narrative. The profile of Corrie Ten Boom is especially convicting and moving. Seven Women illustrates how God can change the world through the lives of those who live their faith.


I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
