Have you been wounded in the past and still carry that hurt?  Wounded Women of the Bible, by Dena Dyer and Tina Samples, includes different women of the Bible that you may be able to relate to, so you can begin to heal.  Some of the women include Ruth, Hagar, and Jochebed and some wounds include abuse, betrayal, and barrenness.  Dyer and Samples tell their own story and that of others.

There is a study guide at the end of the book which would be best used in a group for better healing.

About the Authors-

Dena Dyer currently lives in Texas with her husband and children.  She is a writes and speaks to the women and music’s ministries, where she participates.  She has written other books and many different articles.

Tina Samples currently lives in Colorado with her husband where she is a speaker, writer, and worship leader.  Their children are grown.  She has written a book and various articles. 

My thoughts-

I had a very educational experience while reading Wounded Women of the Bible, by Dena Dyer and Tina Samples.  I had heard of many of the women, like Ruth and Hagar, but there were others I had not heard of such as Ichabod.  I had never thought of them as wounded women before.  After reading this book, I can see how they were wounded and how God worked in their lives.

I enjoyed the stories of the women from the Bible, but I also enjoyed Dyer and Samples’ stories and those of other women.  I could find many different kinds of women to relate to, so I could improve my life.

I thought the study guide was great, but I did not like it being at the end of the book.  I like chapter questions at the end of each chapter.

I would recommend Wounded Women of the Bible to every woman, but especially those who have been wounded.  It is a good way to begin to heal.
