What do Jochebed, Rahab, Abigail, the woman at the well, the woman with the issue of blood, and Priscilla have in common?
It’s not easy to find our voice in a loud world. We wrestle with nagging questions that chip away at our worth, uncertain if we’re up to the challenges around us. It’s exhausting carrying pain from the past, pressure from the present, and fear of the future.

She’s done it again—Angela Donadio has written a wonderful book! Her biblical exegesis is deep and captivating—she’s definitely done her homework on the texts. Yet while she is immersed in the ancient texts and languages, she speaks to a contemporary audience touching on our issues in today’s language. The six fearless women she spotlights, though ordinary, are exemplary—terrific models for us all. I am inspired and challenged (and can’t wait for Angela’s next book).

Angela Donadio and I are alike in many ways—we are both committed to the Word of God, to ministering to women and we both have been married for many years to a pastor. However, Angela is something that I am not—she is an adventurer to the very core of her being. I don’t have one adventurous cell in my body! While Angela climbs a mountain—I read books. While Angela lives in jungle huts—I enjoy 4-star resorts. I must tell you—that even though I am not adventurous that I am indeed, fearless just like my friend, Angela. As I read her new book, I was challenged to live with reckless abandon for the Kingdom of God. I was dared, once again, to be wholehearted in my commitment to Christ and His Kingdom. I purposed, after reading Angela’s new book, to have the same divine impact that women like Rahab, Priscilla and Abigail had at their moment in history. Let’s do this! Let’s be fearless as we serve the God of miracles!

This book is a masterpiece. Angela, herself is both a New Testament and a 21st-century example of a fearless woman of God, accomplishing great things for God in the USA, Africa and other parts of the world. She reveals how some women in the Bible exhibited greater courage than men, confirming the scripture which says,” God is no respecter of
persons” and demonstrating that God can use anybody. This book will turn many lives into useful vessels in the hands of God.

Angela is not only a Bible teacher but a friend who knows what it’s like to live with fear and beyond it. She guides us through several stories of women in the Bible who had every right to be afraid. But the truth Angela shows us is how to live a fearless life of faith. You will be challenged and encouraged through this simple, yet deep study of women of the Bible. Angela traveled to Israel and gives us insight directly from the real-life location of some of these stories. You will be inspired to let go of the fear that is holding you back.
