[This story] above all demonstrates these women's trust in a covenant-keeping God, who delivers what He promises.

Shirley Ballantine’s new book, WOMAN OF THE PROMISE, ($16.49, paperback, 9781498410793; $8.99, e-book, 9781498410809) is the appealing story, delightfully told, of the real-life women who belonged to the most important family line in the history of the world. These women are unique among other women of the Bible, because they were especially blessed by God to bring about His plan of salvation. When God made a promise that He would bring deliverance to a fallen world, He chose to do it through the “offspring of the woman” (Genesis 3:15). This would happen in His time and in His way, and so “when the time had fully come, God sent His Son, born of a woman” (Galatians 4:4).
This fascinating story traces the identity of the woman through her ancestry, right back to early human history. It portrays the struggles and sorrows, triumphs and joys of these women, and above all demonstrates their trust in a covenant-keeping God, who delivers what He promises.
Shirley Ballantine obtained a Masters Degree in theology, which enhanced her pre-existing love for the Bible. For her, the women in the Messianic line shine out from the pages of Scripture with a particular poignancy, and as a woman, she felt compelled to tell their story and show their part in God's great eternal plan. The author powerfully demonstrates God’s amazing love for His creation as she zooms in on the lives of the individuals God used to bring about His purposes. Throughout the book, readers will find that the author’s writing flows with such a deep, biblical revelation regarding her subject matter.
