      Women's work takes many forms. Among the women in the Old Testament, some served as midwives, some as either prostitutes or innkeepers, some as prophets, and one as the leader of the nation. But for many women today, as in biblical times, work is primarily within the home. In the sphere of domestic life women make choices every day about how. Focuses on some of the remarkable women of the Old Testament whose struggles and life situations are not unlike the women of today. Features full-color illustrations that reveal something about each woman's life and the customs associated with her culture as well .
