The History Channel’s The Bible Miniseries is leading people to think more about scripture and its meaning.

The famous Bible women dealt with identical situations that we face today. They knew grief, loss, suffering, stress, infertility, growing old and dying. There are stories or honorable mentions of nearly 180 great women in the Bible. Some we know well, Some are overlooked.
