From Eve to Emma, the influence of women in the scriptures has been felt through the generations. In Daughters of God, best-selling author S. Michael Wilcox explores the lives of women in the scriptures, sharing the exemplary attributes they possessed. The author relates the applications and insights these women's stories have conveyed to him personally, and in turn presents valuable thoughts and discoveries from which all Latter-day Saints can learn. Whether the women of the scriptures were old or young, married or widowed, queens or servants, named or unnamed, their strength and eternal beauty touch our lives and enhance our understanding of the gospel and the standard works. The author brings these noble women to life for the reader.

Great Book for Women

I love this book. You can tell that Michael Wilcox has a understanding of the women in the scriptures. He brings their stories to life. I loved reading about women that I knew little or nothing about. The best thing is that it is separated out into small chapters so those with busy lives can sit down and read a small chapter when they have time.

This book is wonderful because it gives real-life applications of the scriptures, set among eloquent descriptions of the women who walked with, loved, and looked to Christ. I especially like how S. M. Wilcox portrays each woman the best possible that she could've been.
Makes for a good read

Author goes through all the women of the scriptures, even the most remote of names and draws lessons from their lives though in a few cases he has to stretch it to come up with a lesson but all in all it gives food for thought and is definitely worth the read.
