Following examples of women of faith is a great way to learn how to become women of God. And the best examples are from the true stories in the Bible. Not all the women of the Bible were faithful to Christ. But we can learn from past women's failures as well as their triumphs. Legacy of Faith highlights twenty-four of the Bible's most prominent women. Lydia Brownback offers insight and practical application for today's women. She reveals how we can claim the same promises of Christ as these women did - because God is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
