Quick Overview

The Bible is not a haphazard collection of anecdotes.

The stories and their cast of characters are not included on a whim. 

In the Bible God intervenes decisively in the lives of His people. We can trace His hand at work through stories of the Old Testament heroes Moses, Samuel, King Solomon, and the New Testament champions Peter and Paul as He directs the course of human history. But God does not limit Himself to working through men alone. Dickerson shows that for every hero found in the Bible there is a corresponding heroine.

For Such a Time looks at 15 remarkable women and examines how the biblical authors intentionally shaped their narratives to show how their actions and outcomes parallel those of 15 well-known heroes. Clearly, these were not ordinary women. They did not fit the image of the “perfect woman.” They had little in common with the “ideal woman” pictured in Proverbs 31; but they did share one crucial characteristic with that woman–initiative. They were women who did not hesitate to roll up their sleeves and play an active role in shaping their destiny–even when it meant defying convention.

The Bible is a complex Book and God often surprises us and confounds our expectations. For Such a Time is a thoughtful study. Prepare to be inspired, astonished, and delighted!
