Courageous Women is a Bible study that Catholic women will find fascinating. It opens up the lives of Old and New Testament women who, in an amazing assortment of circumstances, faced the challenge of living by faith. It unfolds their stories within the context of salvation history, so that its lessons are not only about how these women lived with God but also about the whole drama of Scripture itself. Thoughtful, practical, and well-written, Courageous Women is sure to be treasured by all who use it."

"What a neat little book! In an age where there is so much discussion about the role of women in the Church and the world, Stacy Mitch tackles an even more fundamental question: the irreplaceable but sometimes forgotten role of women in the history of salvation. Courageous Women outlines that story in a simple, straightforward, and stimulating way. With interactive tools such as reflection questions, memory verses, and a leader's guide, Courageous Women will be especially popular for small group study and discussion. Courageous Women should be part of your library - you'll turn to it more than once."
- Most Rev. Thomas J. Tobin, D.D., Bishop of Youngstown
