Great Women of Faith is a collection of 36 brief biographies of women, each extraordinary in her own way, who answered a call from God and worked toward social justice and equality in the world. They include such well-known names as Jane Addams, Flannery O'Connor, and Sojourner Truth, as well as lesser-known women such as Margaret O'Halloran, Zelie Martin, and Lois Wilson.
Coming from a wide variety of circumstances and backgrounds, these women are linked by their common vision and love for humankind, and their pursuit of social justice. They will thrill and inspire readers of all ages, women and men, with their faith, their fervor, and their accomplishments.
