Women of the Old Testament: 50 Devotional Messages for Women's Groups, by Abraham Kuyper


Another quality entry from Kuyper. Occasionally he embellishes fact with what appears to be his own vision of what was going on behind the scenes, which can be frustrating. But in many cases, he presents these biblical characters in new (to me, anyway) and insightful ways. Not everything he intuits about every character is based in incontrovertible fact, but the lessons are largely sound (even if the passages in question don't necessarily illustrate those lessons).

Worth reading, and easy to digest (each section is about 3-4 pages in length, and the sections are discrete, so it's a great daily devotional).
