Seven Women and the Secret of their Greatness by Eric Metaxas
Reviewed by Nikki Richardson, API Senior Director of Development

“In his book, Seven Women, Eric Metaxas tells the stories of Joan of Arc, Susanna Wesley, Hannah More, Saint Maria of Paris, Corrie ten Boom, Rosa Parks, and Mother Teresa–7 women who were world changers. Metaxas carefully selected women who were not the first to do something a man had already done, but women who accomplished great things that could only be accomplished because they were women. My favorite chapter discussed Susanna Wesley and how she shaped the Methodist movement through the intentional and tireless way she raised her sons. As a mother of four children, this inspired me immensely. As a bonus, the notes portion at the end of the book can also serve as a reference of what to read next!”
