More than fifty specific women are introduced in the New Testament, with countless others numbered among the Savior's followers. Female disciples were frequently described as devout believers who eagerly served and sacrificed as they followed Christ. Amid repressive traditions that so often marginalized or restricted women to lesser roles, Jesus saw them as individuals with agency to choose how they would use their unique gifts.
In this well-researched and richly-illustrated companion volume to Women of the Old Testament, author Camille Fronk Olson focuses on many of these remarkable women and explores how they were influenced by Jesus Christ and His gospel. From His beloved mother, to a quiet woman in a crowd, to two sisters both desiring to serve the Lord in their own way, each bore a powerful witness of the Savior before and during His earthly ministry. Others, like Lydia, Phebe, and Prisca, helped to proclaim truth and spread the gospel after His Resurrection. With a Points to Ponder section at the end of each chapter and exquisite paintings created especially for this volume, Women of the New Testament provides a unique look at women whose examples of faith and devotion still inspire us today.
