The Women of the Bible Speak PDF-The women of the Bible lived timeless stories—by examining them, we can understand what it means to be a woman of faith.
People unfamiliar with Scripture often assume that women play a small, secondary role in the Bible. But in fact, they were central figures in numerous Biblical tales. It was Queen Esther’s bravery at a vital point in history which saved her entire people. The Bible contains warriors like Jael, judges like Deborah, and prophets like Miriam. The first person to witness Jesus’ resurrection was Mary Magdalene, who promptly became the first Christian evangelist, eager to share the news which would change the world forever.
In The Women of the Bible Speak, Fox News Channel’s Shannon Bream opens up the lives of sixteen of these Biblical women, arranging them into pairs and contrasting their journeys. In pairing their stories, Shannon helps us reflect not only on the meaning of each individual’s life, but on how they relate to each other and to us.
From the shepherdesses of ancient Israel who helped raise the future leaders of the people of God, to the courageous early Christians, the narrative of the Bible offers us many vivid and fascinating female characters. In their lives we can see common struggles to resist bitterness, despair, and pride, and to instead find their true selves in faith, hope, and love. In studying these heroes of the faith, we can find wisdom and warnings for how to better navigate our own faith journeys.
The Women of the Bible Speak outlines the lessons we can take from the valor of Esther, the hope of Hannah, the audacity of Rahab, and the faith of Mary. In broadening each woman’s individual story, Shannon offers us a deeper understanding of each, and wisdom and insights that can transform our own lives today.-The Women of the Bible Speak PDF

The Women of the Bible Speak PDF This is the best book for anyone around the world to download and must read whether of any age or any profession as they will improve the thinking with which you live your life dramatically.
SHANNON BREAM joined Fox News Channel in 2007. She currently serves as host of Fox News @ Night (weekdays at 11 p.m.), the network’s Chief Legal Correspondent.
A Florida native, she’s drawn to the sun and the beach where she grew up with parents who convinced her anything was possible. Their lives were modest, but they believed in the power of: education, hard work and faith.
Though she now spends her days covering politics and the United States Supreme Court, Shannon started her career as a sexual harassment attorney. She counts it a great privilege to cover the news of the day at such a pivotal moment in history.
It wasn’t an easy journey from attorney to journalist, and she was actually fired from her first reporting job. That boss told her, “You’re the worst person I’ve ever seen on TV and you’ll never make it.” Used to being the underdog, Shannon took that as a personal challenge. First, as a reality check to assess her skills and decide how she could improve. Second, to test the limits of what she could accomplish in the face of such a dire prediction.
From competing in the Miss America Pageant to running a marathon, she’s developed an attitude of persistence. The refusal to take “no” for an answer has come in handy as she chases politicians around Capitol Hill and digs to get to the root of the story. It was also critical when she confronted a life-changing illness and had to fight to become her own medical advocate in order to find a diagnosis and a strategy for living with chronic, crippling pain.
Amid the swirl of troubling news from around the globe, her faith is her greatest comfort and hope.
Away from work, Shannon enjoys running, fly fishing, reading and travelling the world with her partner-in-crime: her husband, Sheldon.
She is a magna cum laude graduate of Liberty University, a former Miss America finalist and earned a Juris Doctorate with honors from Florida State University College of Law.

PBJfries “I’ve been reading this like a novel! This is the only book I’ve been able to sit still and read during this whole pandemic. I’m surprised to find the women of the Bible so relatable I’m going though tough times and struggling. Shannon doesn’t sugar coat their imperfections and explains they – and we – are good and bad and just human. And the book makes you think how God uses their and our imperfections and sins for His purposes. It’s so uplifting!
I strongly encourage you to read it and give it to your friends and family and have book studies about the women in the Bible (there are group questions at the end of each chapter.)
Shannon was clearly inspired by the Holy Spirit to write this book during these hard times. As an anchor on Fox, Shannon uses her journalism skills to give the book the facts, history, context and scripture. I’m learning a lot about the women in the Bible- some I never paid much attention.
But the power in the book is that it’s not just the facts. Shannon is humble about her own struggles in life and has truly a non-judgemental empathy for us. There are lines in the book that read, reread, underline and then stare off and think about how I’m being challenged to follow God more closely. (See just one page from my book in the photo above.)
I know from her first book that Shannon was raised in a deeply Christian home and went to Christian college, so all those years of study show in her confidence in analyzing scripture. Also, as a longtime TV anchor, she has a style of writing that brings the viewers/reader into the story and moves along at a brisk pace. I can actually hear her voice from TV as I read along – and I don’t have the audio book!
Thank you, Shannon, for making these women in the Bible come to life and inspire me to be less afraid and less ashamed of my human imperfection so that I can look more to what God’s purpose for me is here on earth.”

Shannon Bream has compiled a collection of paired biographical sketches that span the entirety of the Holy Bible, from Genesis thru Christ’s resurrection. By taking two women and partnering them in a chapter together, we get an opportunity to compare and contrast their natures and the way they respond in a given situation.
Each chapter is divided into 3 parts: one part for each of the subjects and the last part is 4-5 questions designed to summarize the study, propose areas for further tho’t or investigation and deepen your faith. There’s no accusation or preaching just solid biblical, inductive study principles.
Shannon has an engaging style that made me want to keep reading. Facts are presented, without being dry, and the information is relative for today’s people. The chapters aren’t overly long and can be broken down into 2 or 3 parts as your schedule permits. If you’re looking for a fresh Bible study, this would make a great one and could be used for personal or group study.
A breath of fresh air and encouragement for one and all”
carla “I read the review that gave this book low rating and I feel like they’re missing Haidt’s main point/ reason to write about this book. Haidt is concerned about social cohesion. And the thing is social cohesion comes from homogeneity or at least shared values or activities. Considering that the left is all about diversity, newness and difference, it makes sense that he would portray it in a somewhat negative light. The problem with insisting on difference and individuality, is that instead of making society adapt to you, it makes society notice your difference even more and hence, cause more bigotry and racism. Furthermore, I would like to point out something about diversity and multiculturalism. Multiculturalism is a pretty word that is tossed around when we’re talking about diversity, but it seems to me that very few people understand it.
Multiculturalism hardly means people living together as a community, it means having community within a larger community. Take the example of London, you have people from Eastern Europe on one side, the Polish only stays with the Polish, the Slovakian with the Slovakian and so on and so forth. Then, you have Black Jamaican who make up another unit. You have Black African (Anglophone and Francophone) – Nigerian, Ghanaian, Ugandan, Ivorian, Congolese…etc. Obviously nobody actually mix together. Nigerian stays with Nigerian, Ivorian with Ivorian and so on and so forth. Then you have Indians and Pakistani who stays with people who come from the same country as them. Even Italian in London usually stays with Italians. In fact not long ago, an Italian told me that there was a big association for Italian in London and that he was a member. There are many other group that I skipped because I couldn’t be bothered but you understand what I mean. And then you have the English – some accept this diversity (usually easier in good economic time), others merely tolerate it.
All group have a natural tendency toward self-segregation. But on top of that, these days we have an external pressure from the Left. The Left does everything it can to remind people how different they are from another, besides picking nonsense battle which erode social trust and our already tenuous social cohesion (i.e tearing statues, protests on university…etc).
The left in its haste to remake fail to understand that a) the world as it is though not perfect is way better than it use to be and b)that if they continue it will only lead us to a civil war. There is still poverty but anyone who’d read history would know that it’s nothing as it used to be (read for example Way to Wigan Road), racism though still a major issue is better now than it ever was. I should also point out something people always talk about how Trump brought a fascist state, about how much of a Nazi he is and so on and so forth. Do they not realise that if they were living in a true Nazi state they could not insult him, or his supporter the way they do on TV or even anonymously on social media? Trump is bad, but no he’s isn’t creating a new Nazi Germany or URSS. And really saying such things is terribly insensitive to the people who lived through those time.
By the way, I do not mean to say that injustice should not be tackled, but it has to be done in a pragmatic and useful way. Concretely, though I understand why he did this, what has Kaeparnick protesting the American flag accomplished besides increasing polarisation? Similarly, for the last couple of years I have heard using terms such as white privilege, white supremacists, old white men, patriarchy and other similar words in almost in every sense and often when they aren’t warranted. But what has it accomplished? It has created a backlash from conservative and annoyed liberals. You also have white liberals who have accepted those terms. But I believe for some, it is only a cool trend they have stumbled into, for other it is a form of religion which I’m not entirely sure they fully believe into, and the last group simply feel obliged.
To be clear, I do believe that in an unfair world, black people are more likely to suffer from unfairness than white people. There are various reasons for this bias and prejudice, the fact that black people are a numeral minority (10% of black in US, only 2% in UK and probably also about 2% in France) whereas white are the majority, lack of economic power of black people in the country they live, lack of economic country of African countries and cultural difference. So, in a sense I believe that white privilege exists, but I think that the way we go about talking about it is simply too divisive and does not promote understanding or even compassion.
I am very well aware of all the wrong white led country have done in history. Though if we’re being very fair about it, Arab countries (slavery) and Asian countries (mostly Japon have done the same [severe colonisation of neighbours]) have done similar misdeed. But really, we can’t expect someone to understand our point of view when we scream have him that the colour of his skin make him a bad person, even if he personally hasn’t done anything. Or when we say that all white people are basically evil. I understand where people are coming from when they say that. Exchanging with someone who has entrenched beliefs about you & your people, who simply cannot imagine that his experience is not the experience of everybody else or someone who is wilfully ignorant/ selectively chose morsel of history (many Conservative) can be very trying. Nonetheless, if our objective is to make a positive change then we need to change how we communicate.
Going back to the book, though Haidt says that Conservative have six moral foundation rather than the Liberal’s three, he does point out the flaws within the Conservative movement. Besides, Haidt never said that having the six moral foundation mean that you can’t be biases or that your reasoning is perfect. In fact, you could argue that he said the contrary. One more thing, someone pointed out that if Conservative score high in Loyalty how come they distrust the government. Well, this reading is wrong. Conservative do trust government to provide a good environment/ market, they trust the government’s words, including its lies. Essentially, they gov to rule the environment but not the individual. You should remember that they also score high in Liberty. Hence, it isn’t surprising that they do not want an external force to rule them.
I suppose some people aren’t happy just because he didn’t call them racist idiots. By the way, even after reading this book, I still have trouble reconciling my initial views with the picture Haidt presented. What I’m trying to say is that though Haidt’s book gave me a lot of insight, I still have much to digest.
I would recommend this book to anyone who want to understand politics and their neighbours with different political opinion.
There’s only one thing which the book is missing for me. It is a niggle and really, Haidt already did enough and couldn’t have looked at this. But I wonder how morality work/ develop across race. For example, a lot of black people are liberal/ democrats because this side have generally been against injustice and willing to do something for the lower section of society. But, could it be that some despite their skin colour are actually closer in their moral spectrum to the white conservative they despise (and who in turn may despise them)? More bluntly said, if instead of being black, they had been born white, could their political leaning be completely different because being white and conservative doesn’t come with the same baggage has being black and conservative? Really, if they white conservative could leave out his bias, could the black who have the same moral makeup as him get along better with him than with fellow black who do not have the same moral buds?
Really, I can’t help wondering how much who you are outside influence your political leaning despite who you are inside. If I had the opportunity I would have done a Phd on this. But ah…I’m way too busy. Has anyone ever thought about this?
In any case, as I said, highly recommended!”
