“We have too few female heroes of the faith,” asserts author Jamie Janosz in the introduction of her new book, When Others Shuddered: Eight Women Who Refused to Give Up.
If you were asked to name historical female heroes of faith, whom would you name? Amy Carmichael, Mary Slessor, Gladys Aylward, Corrie Ten Boom, and Elisabeth Elliot might immediate come to mind. But then does the mind go blank?
