Looking for a Book Club that will encourage you in your pursuit of holiness and challenge your understanding of the Lord? The Book Club at Desiring Virtue is for women who love the Lord and desire to mine the riches of his Word together!
In the month of February we will be reading Feminine Threads: Women in the Tapestry of Christian History by Diana Lynn Severance.
Publisher’s Description: ”From commoner to queen, the women in this book embraced the freedom and the power of the Gospel in making their unique contributions to the unfolding of history. Wherever possible, the women here speak for themselves, from their letters, diaries or published works. The true story of women in Christian history inspires, challenges and demonstrates the grace of God producing much fruit throughout time.”
Endorsements: ”What a gift to God’s people is this remarkable tracing of the rich trail of women used by God to build his church! Severance’s comprehensive scope and measured but warm scholarly voice put many of today’s more clamoring voices in illuminating perspective. With excellence and careful documentation, Dr. Severance lights up a procession of women who in God’s providence helped bring us to this point in history. Reading this book, we not only relish the voices and stories Severance brings to life; we also gain a hugely important understanding of an expansive heritage of women grounded in God’s Word and serving God’s redemptive purposes throughout human history.”

“Feminine Threads is a must-read for men and women alike, but especially so for young women who need to have a clear view of the contributions that women before them have made to the Christian faith.” - Carolyn McCulley, Conference Speaker and Author of Radical Womanhood: Feminine Faith in a Feminist World
