The first witnesses to the resurrection were not men, but women – and without women, the Easter story would not have happened at all.
These hidden voices of the Bible's story are found through the Old Testament and the New Testament. In this daily Lent devotional for 2022, join Ros Clarke as she uncovers the women of the Bible who are essential to the Easter weekend. From Eve to the Shummamite, and from Deborah to Ruth, Forty Women will open your eyes to the power of the gospel.
Exploring a different character each day to take you from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday, Forty Women is an uplifting and inspirational look at what we can learn from the different women of the Bible. Looking at their lives, triumphs and failures, Ros Clark shows us how these women are examples of faith and warning against sin, whose seemingly ordinary lives connect with an extraordinary God.
The perfect Lent book for 2022, Forty Women shows us how these women’s stories cast fresh light on the Bible in unexpected ways, whilst their shared humanity reminds us of wonderful truths and promises of God's word to His people as we prepare to celebrate the ultimate promise of the resurrection at Easter.
Forty Women can be read in small groups or individually, and is an ideal read for anyone wanting to learn more about the women of the Bible and the witnesses to the resurrection, as well as for anyone looking for Biblical encouragement during Lent. Its daily devotions can easily fit into a busy schedule, and will give you a new appreciation for these often overlooked Biblical figures.
Join Ros Clarke this Lent, and see the women of the Bible as never before.

During the first lockdown, I wrote a book (as yet unpublished) about British women who history seem to have forgotten about, and so I developed a new interest and appreciation of women who achieved, founded, developed or witnessed something in a man’s world. I didn’t realise this was predominately religious based. There’s absolutely nothing at all wrong with that, but it would have been nice to read about a cross-section of historical females. It was an interesting premise but didn’t grab me or hold my interest for long,
Brilliant up to date exploration of 40 Biblical women. Doesn't shy away from the tough stuff, but allowed me to really see these women and their stories. Easy to read chapters, backed up by scripture references, though provoking questions which would support any journey through lent, either alone or in a small group, and beautifully written prayers for each day. I shall be returning to this in Lent to breathe it in, take it at a a slower pace and to allow God to speak through these 40 women.
