Matriarchs of the Messiah: Valiant Women in the Lineage of Jesus Christ
by Jo Ann Skousen
Autographed by the author
     Matriarchs of the Messiah is the first book to focus entirely on the dozen women who are identified in the Bible as maternal ancestors of Jesus Christ. The list includes the wives of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, but it also includes cultural outsiders like Tamar, Rahab, Ruth and Bathsheba who were grafted into the lineage of the Messiah through marriage and motherhood. Often these women are presented as tricksters and temptresses, but as this well-documented book makes clear, they were valiant, courageous problem-solvers determined to do what was right for their posterity.
     "Believers and non-believers alike will be fascinated and inspired by the women whose stories are skillfully told here by Jo Ann Skousen. Their trials, triumphs, strengths, and shortcomings will speak to both women and men today. Skousen’s knowledge of the times in which they lived is particularly impressive” — Steve Forbes
