Author(s): Clare Heath-Whyte
The nineteenth century saw great innovation and change. The modern world grew and flourished at the hands of great creators and scientists. There were opportunities for Christian men to influence their society and culture for good, and these key figures were often supported and sustained by unsung heroes – their wives. Inside these pages, you’ll read of six women who lived bold, godly, and servant-hearted lives during the nineteenth century. Be challenged by their wholehearted commitment to Christ even under the restrictions of the day. And be encouraged that they too struggled with similar concerns as us – time management, parenting, sickness – and yet sought to live for the glory of Jesus. Reflection questions at the end of each chapter make this an ideal book to aid your personal growth or to enjoy as part of a book discussion group.
'Maybe it is because Clare makes history so relevant, surprising and entertaining; maybe it is because we can identify with the women that she writes about, however different their circumstances are to our own. At St Helens, we LOVE these compassionate, inspiring books!' ~ William and Janet Taylor
