Ten Sermons on Women in the Bible For the third published book of his early career, Harold John Ockenga chose to focus on a series of biographical sermons on women in the Bible that he had preached on Sunday evenings at Boston's Park Street Church. Although the series continued for several months, ten of the sermons were selected for inclusion in this volume. ""The identity of these women was not revealed until each sermon was preached,"" as we learn from the book's foreword, to help stimulate curiosity and a sense of anticipation. ""Keen interest in Bible study,"" we are told, ""was sustained through the entire series."" ""From Delilah and Rachel to Ruth, Martha, and Mary, Harold John Ockenga introduces his readers to a fascinating array of female characters found in the pages of Scripture. Each seems to spring to life once again as their stories are told yet again by a gifted communicator and trusted pastor. As was the result when they were first preached, I suspect that they will stimulate whole new generations of readers to search the Scriptures for themselves."" --Garth M. Rosell, Senior Research Professor of Church History, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary Harold John Ockenga (1905-1985) studied at Taylor University, Princeton Theological Seminary, Westminster Theological Seminary, and the University of Pittsburgh. From 1931 to 1936 he served as pastor at Point Breeze Presbyterian Church in Pittsburgh, and from 1936 to 1969 as senior minister at historic Park Street Church in Boston. From his base at Park Street he rose to international prominence, becoming one of the most recognized leaders of the resurgent evangelical movement that swept across America and around the world during the 1940s and 1950s.
