She is Called

Women of the Bible Study Series

A Building God's Church Together Resource

T he Bible is full of stories, which we retell to knit us together as a body, to remind us of who we are, and to inspire us as we continue to walk with Christ. The She Is Called Women of the Bible Study Series was created to help us dig deeply into the stories of biblical women so that we all might be challenged, strengthened, and encouraged in our faith. We read, tell, and engage with these stories—often hidden or untold—not only because they are inspirational, but also because these stories invite us to experience God in ways that are sure to transform our lives. This isn’t just something women need. It is important for both men and women.
Each volume of this Bible study series is composed of nine different sessions. Every session invites you to explore a different biblical story. You can engage this study in a Bible study group or on your own.  A diverse team of people connected to the Building God’s Church Together ministry of Reformed Church in America Women’s Transformation and Leadership envisioned and created the study. Those who contributed include experienced pastors and professors of theology, and each session offers a theologically rich, in-depth look at a biblical story for the 21st-century reader.
