Publisher's Description

These are the stories of five ordinary women—Sarah Edwards, Lilias Trotter, Gladys Aylward, Esther Ahn Kim, and Helen Roseveare—who trusted in their extraordinary God as he led them to do great things for his kingdom. Noël Piper holds up their lives and deeds as examples of what it means to be truly faithful. Learning about these women will challenge readers to make a difference for Christ in their families, in the church, and throughout the world.

“A fine work of drawing the reader into the historical and spiritual life of these early pioneer missionaries. Well worth reading as a family.”
- Lars and Elisabeth Gren (Elliot)

“Noël Piper tells the stories of five women whose lives declare something we have almost forgotten—what it means to be a Christian. May the influence of this book cause that awareness to burn brightly again in our generation!”
- Ray and Jani Ortlund, Renewal Ministries

“I highly recommend this book as one of the great sagas of missionaries and Christian biography.”
— David M. Howard Jr., Professor of Old Testament, Bethel University, St. Paul, MN

“We live in a Christian subculture that can intimidate women from stepping out in faithful risk-taking for God. Noël Piper challenges all of us to move away from intimidation to imitation: 'Remember your leaders . . . imitate their faith' (Hebrews 13:7).”
- Dr. Rick Love, International Director, Frontiers, and Fran Love, editor, Longing to Call Them Sisters: Ministry to Muslim Women

“The greatest accolade for a follower of Christ is his pronouncement: 'Well done, good and faithful servant!' Noël Piper skillfully recounts the stories of women who have undoubtedly heard or will hear these words. Their lives call out from the pages of history to quicken our spirits, fanning the desire that we—like these sisters of old—may be found faithful.”
- Mary A. Kassian, author and speaker

“Noël Piper brings to life ordinary women of generations past and present whose testimonies have catapulted them into extraordinary influence upon the women of subsequent generations. Noël’s timely insights may well prove to be timeless in their impact upon the lives of women today and for many generations to come. Any woman will delight in the way this look into the past brings inspiration and encouragement for tackling the challenges of today.”
- Dorothy Kelley Patterson, Professor of Theology in Women’s Studies, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
