A collection of 8 Bible stories, chosen especially to appeal to girls. They tell of strong women of faith, retold in a contemporary voice that is easy to relate to. The stories are prefaced with a short introduction encouraging the reader to think about the message contained in each; at the back of the book there is a section that sets the stories in context and shows where to find them in the Bible. The illustrations are sophisticated with a classical feel, but have been given a modern edge.
