Super book. I borrowed a friend's book and ended up buying one for my daughter to keep. While doing daily life it's easy to forget that God is at work in miraculous ways for those who put their trust in Him. I would highly recommend this book.

Mrs. Piper chose wonderful women to profile. They are real enough that it's easy to imagine yourself reacting to a situation just as they did. For instance, Mrs. Piper notes that at least twice Helen Roseveare is rebuked for wrong attitudes. Helen's humility in accepting the rebuke and repenting was a great example to me. This book is an effective tool to help us live our lives for the glory of God.This is also a great book because the profiles are just that: profiles. Though detailed, they don't take forever to read. You feel like you've accomplished something, and you may be left wanting more!Finally, this book is worth reading because Mrs. Piper isn't satisfied just telling us about someone else's life. Each profile concludes with Mrs. Piper's own thoughts about the lessons she learned from reading about these saints. She directs our thoughts to that which is most important - God and His Word.This wonderful book is a quick way to get a handle on the lives of some shining examples of Godly women, and is a lesson in itself on living life God's way, and the eternal rewards of seeking first His kingdom.

Mrs. Piper's book allows us to ponder the faithfulness and sovereignty of a loving God through the struggles and hardships of these five women who were so intent on serving Him wholeheartedly. An excellent read! Challenging and thought provoking. I would recommend this book to any woman seeking to make a difference for the Kingdom of God.
