This detailed literature summary also contains Topics for Discussion and a Free Quiz on All of the Women of the Bible by Edith Deen.

All of The Women of The Bible is edited and compiled by Edith Green. The author has made a leap forward for all in that she has compiled information about the women found in The Bible into a single volume. Herein, the women are looked at from a variety of angles and for the purposes of better understanding these Biblical figures as individuals and their roles within the religious contexts in which they appear.The author includes both the prominent and the nameless individuals. She provides encyclopedic listings of some their names and devotes entire chapters to others. The first woman in this tradition is Eve. The chapters proceed so that the last figure is Eunice "mother of Timothy". Following these, she takes on more women per chapter.

The author's work provides an overview which can be used for further analysis. Whether for Bible Studies, Women's Studies or history of Judaism or Christianity, this book makes a great source for reference material. Naturally, this work can be used as a supplement to Scriptures and other references. It also makes reasonably light reading for those who may simply be curious and are intrigued by the possibilities.

By the end of the book, readers have been introduced to and reminded of many women. There are examples of marvelous women and of incredibly wicked women. Many of the women now and in Biblical times are between these extremes of perfection and nightmares. There is a wonderful variety of ways showing how to be a high quality woman. The ways of women are embraced. Motherhood is touted the best possible means for a woman to be her best. There are also other means by which a woman can be great. In this sense, there is bound to be at least one healthy model of womanhood to suit the tastes of every reader. The bad news is that there are also a few models of evil women. Just to keep people on their toes, there are also sample cases of disreputable women doing great things, giving people an opportunity to reconsider what their own values are and how they make judgments of other people. The most evil woman presented in the book is the woman who gets her daughter and husband to have John the Baptist's head cut off.
