Wounded Women of the Bible

Finding Hope When Life Hurts
By Dena Dyer and Tina Samples


About the book: 

Imploding relationships, incapacitating losses, injurious personal mistakes, or spiritual failures-whatever the issue, the wounds are the same.

Whether it’s a lapse in judgment by Bathsheba or the moral failure of the women’s ministry leader in your local church; the spiritual insensitivity of Martha or the compulsive obsessions of your church’s care circle chairwoman; the terror of an abandoned single mother like Hagar or the struggling single mother in your prayer group-the time and circumstances are different, but the wounds are equally deep and spiritually devastating.

Dena Dyer and Tina Samples get it. They have their own stories of pain before healing-along with similar experiences of their families and friends. Offering more than pat affirmations or vicarious shoulders to cry on, Dena and Tina delve deep into the shared emotions and injuries that women of all ages have in common-and move readers toward the recovery and healing that only God can provide.

No matter what hurts you’ve experienced, Wounded Women of the Bible proves that God understands and that healing is not only His intention but His delight!


Reading this book clearly shows that women have always experienced hurt in some way. Authors Dena Dyer and Tina Samples’ Wounded Women of the Bible gives ladies an inside look at more than a dozen women throughout Bible time and the hurts and difficulties they faced. We read the stories  of Dinah, Ruth, Hagar, Ichabod’s Mother, Mary and Martha, and others, getting to know they ladies in a really interesting and unique way.

Finding Hope When Life Hurts is truly what we learned from this book through the lives of each of these ladies. Dena Dyer and Tina Samples leave nothing out as they study and explore what the Bible says. I also appreciate the authors opening their own lives and showing the hurts and struggles they have faced in their lives. To me, this makes the book even more special because we are not only getting truths from the Bible, we are getting truths from real people’s lives.

I received this book from the publisher Kregel to read and review.  I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.
