The Reformation was a time of exciting and radical change. The leaders would have been under great pressure as they stood firmly for their convictions in the face of danger and threats. What would it have been like for the women who stood beside and supported them? Although many of these pressures are totally alien to us today, we still face the same challenge of standing firm for the gospel in a world which is against the God of the Bible. In this companion to Old Wives Tales Clare Heath Whyte once again shows us the importance of learning from the past. She tells the stories of six Reformation wives including Katie Luther, Katharina Zell and Idelette Calvin. She honestly portrays how they endeavoured to live godly lives during this tumultuous period in history. Get to know the fascinating stories of these six courageous, hard working wives. Learn from their mistakes and struggles, and be encouraged by their examples.

Review:

I couldn t stop reading about these six women! I loved their passion to read the Bible when they were allowed to read it for themselves for the first time. Some had to wait while their husbands translated it for them! They were scorned in society for marrying priests and all around them was persecution, controversy, plague and death yet they showed hospitality in a way that blew my mind. Some were quiet and some outspoken but Jesus used them to change their world. They changed mine, too. --Liz Cox

If, like me, you hated history at school, and know precious little about the Reformation, have no fear! I found First Wives Club a great way to spend time with 6 very different Christian women who lived in the early 16th century, and to learn about the Reformation through their lives, marriages and home situations. Some showed great godliness and courage in the public arena of church politics alongside their husbands, others served quietly behind the scenes, giving generous hospitality and compassionate care; some were exemplary in their Christian life and witness, others were far from being ministry models! Each biography is followed by a short suggested Bible passage and questions for study and reflection, which will help the reader to view the Wives lives through Bible eyes and see the challenges for their own life and faith. Highly recommended! --Christa Moll

I absolutely loved First Wives Club I absolutely loved First Wives Club couldn t put it down! This book, beautifully written, was a joy to read. It gives us the portraits of six women who lived in the most dangerous but exciting time in history from a Christian point of view. Their relationship to the Reformers gives the human interest to the book, but they were courageous godly women in their own right, whom God was able to use in a complementary way in the recovery of the true gospel of Christ and its progress in Europe. Great role models for today! --Christine Gobbert
