Lectures on Female Scripture Characters by William Jay.

William Jay pastored a Congregational church in Bath, England, for some sixty years. Over those years he studied the lives and actions of numerous females in the Old and New Testaments. During a period of recovery from a serious illness, he collated for publication these earlier studies. Chapters are devoted to Hannah, the Samaritan woman whom Jesus met at the well, and Mary Magdalene. Lydia, Dorcas, and the sisters, Martha and Mary, are among those also studied. The author commented on their character and actions and made numerous applications. This book can be read and applied profitably by males, females, and families today just as it was a hundred and fifty years ago.

The pages of scripture breathed life into everyday events. The Shunamite woman in Elisha's day had to deal with the death of her son. The poor widow at the temple treasury gave an insignificant offering to the eyes of all but Jesus. The redeemed sinner, who approached Jesus in Simon's house, did so to the chagrin and criticism of Simon. As Martha and Mary hosted Christ, Martha learned much when a conversation with Christ took an unexpected turn. In recounting these stories, the author is careful to stay within the bounds of scripture as he drives home to the reader's heart points of encouragement, enlightenment, and correction. As each subject is examined, the ultimate focus is on Christ.

The final chapter is devoted to Lot's wife. In Luke 17:32, Christ told His hearers to "Remember Lot's wife." What a fitting conclusion to this volume. Jay counsels his readers in the value of remembering. I believe his admonition is wise not only in regard to Lot's wife, but, also, to our remembering the lessons taught to each woman.
