GREAT WOMEN OF THE CHRISTIAN FAITH: Published by HARPER & BROTHERS in 1959 & edited by EDITH DEEN. To the power of good biography to stir the reader to the depths is added here the subject matter of the greatest women in Christendom’s nineteen-century march, recalled with understanding, abundant detail and genuine sympathy. Since historians have focused on men as the doers, it has remained for a woman to rediscover and re-present some of the really great figures who glorified all humanity and proved to be towering witnesses to truth, beacon lights of inspiration, and reservoirs of comfort and sustenance. Transcending alike denominational differences and theological controversies, they spoke with their lives and convictions and by so doing immeasurably forwarded the cause of Christ. Just as we done with such effectiveness in all of the women of the Bible. Mrs Deen gives these women a new setting and a new appreciation for the present day. Never before has one volume contained, in 47 full studies and 76 concise sketches, the life stories of these 123 whose re-creation again suggest the courage, steadfastness, resourcefulness and imaginative living that Christian faith supplies. From the dangerous days of early Christianity, through the long Middle Ages, the excitement and persecution of Reformation times and after, to the era of missionary expansion and growth, these women stood out.
