From Teresa of Avila to Corrie ten Boom, women of faith through the centuries have left us a rich legacy of wisdom through their examples of lives well-lived for God. A Cloud of Witnesses is a delightful introduction to some of these extraordinary women. Through fifty brief, user-friendly devotional readings, readers will: - walk with Amy Carmichael through the streets of India, where she rescued children from Hindu temple prostitution - consider Susanna Wesley's motherly advice to her son on resisting worldly temptations - experience the shackles of prison with French mystic Jeanne Guyon, who found the strength to pray, "Thy will be done!" A related Scripture reading and prayer follow each biographical account and ensure easy personal application. Daniel and Margaret Partner are also coauthors of the companion book Women of Sacred Song: Meditations on Hymns by Women, which profiles the contributions of Christian women to music.
