Bible Study – Volume 6, Wives of the Prophets and Women in Captivity
By Elizabeth Handford, a committed pastor’s wife, the tired and joyful mother of seven, a life-long student of the Scriptures. She knows the needs and temptations of Christian women in this distressing world because she has lived through it too.
Serving God has its wonderful and sweet rewards, but the cost of ministry is sometimes enormous. You’ll study one prophet’s wife who died just to teach rebellious people the gravity of their sin. One pastor’s wife never had privacy from the elders, even in her bedroom. One wife was a prostitute when her preacher-husband loved her and married her, but she was unfaithful to him. Another abandoned her husband when he got sick. Some were unbelievers married to godly men.
But you’ll learn, too, from women who met the challenges of coming out of exile home to a ruined city. They struggled, but they overcame every handicap with purpose and joy.
