Oct/Nov – Seven Women: And the Secret of Their Greatness by Eric Metaxas
Each of the world-changing figures who stride across these pages—Joan of Arc, Susanna Wesley, Hannah More, Maria Skobtsova, Corrie ten Boom, Mother Teresa, and Rosa Parks—is an exemplary model of true womanhood.
Teenage Joan of Arc followed God’s call and liberated her country, dying a heroic martyr’s death. Susanna Wesley had nineteen children and gave the world its most significant evangelist and its greatest hymn-writer, her sons John and Charles. Corrie ten Boom, arrested for hiding Dutch Jews from the Nazis, survived the horrors of a concentration camp to astonish the world by forgiving her tormentors. And Rosa Parks’ deep sense of justice and unshakable dignity and faith helped launch the twentieth-century’s greatest social movement. Writing in his trademark conversational and engaging style, Eric Metaxas reveals how the other extraordinary women in this book achieved their greatness, inspiring readers to lives shaped by the truth of the gospel.
Dec/Jan – Hiding in the Light: Why I Risked everything to Leave Islam and Follow Jesus by Rifqa Bary
Rifqa writes: “After four years of hiding my faith from my family, I knew that it was time. I wrote with shaky hands, Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior. I refuse to deny him . There was no turning back now. I had to get out of that house if I wanted to live. Was this worth risking everything for?… “. This is the story of Rifqa’s remarkable spiritual journey from Islam to Christianity.
