In the Studio Sneak Peak Friday: All the women of the Bible
A new very old book for me to read. And, I started reading this book somewhere in the middle. Then I read the preface. I just love the copy I'm reading, It's old & tattered with a many a frayed edges. Edith Deen's style of writing transcends time and space. Although, written in 1955 ... for the most part ... it reads as if it were just written yesterday.
This week I focused my study on Lydia for she was a business woman. And according to DEEN the first Christian Convert in Europe. Deen's describes Lydia as radiant.
We are studying Acts in our Bible fellowship group at church. So when we get to this chapter ... it should be most interesting.
Acts 16:14 (KJV)
And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard us: whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul.
NOTE: This verse confirms that the Lord is in charge of opening hearts. Lydia's heart was opened & Lydia took action ... attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul.
Find more about Lydia in Acts 16:15 ...
Deen describes Lydia as a Spiritual Leader!

There is something wonderful& fascinating about old books. Not just the reading content,but the smell of it,and thoughts of who and how many people over the years have read this book.
might you have a favorite woman in the bible?ReplyDelete
I have a book by Elizabeth George on Remarkable Women of the Bible. This looks like a great read too. I think sometimes women are discredited...but there are many wonderful women in Scripture...ReplyDelete

Dearest sweet sonya, it's wonderful to be back on the swing of things on blogland! This book is soo interesting! Thanks so much for sharing. Have a lovely merry happy weekend and love to you!ReplyDelete
I haven't read it but now I'd like to, Sonya :) And I do love old books, the musty smell and fragile pages. Treasure!ReplyDelete
I love books like this...I found a good series some years ago by Navigators publishers..."Her Name Is Woman" book 1 and book 2. It is a Bible Study of each woman mentioned in the Bible with exercises to apply her life to our own today...very powerful! Women have always held in equal position to men in God's heart, whether we are talking about the Father, the Son, or the Holy Spirit...when you look at how They personally address women in the Bible, an understanding of how our position has been perverted through the ages...ReplyDelete
so nice to remember we have a LINEAGE of Christian business women!ReplyDelete
