Featured Review

"Dorothy Patterson is a born Bible teacher and a marvellous mentor for Christian women everywhere. I highly recommend this book."

Denise George, Author, teacher, speaker www.denisegeorge.org


Description

Many women impacted upon the life of Moses. The woman who bore him, the young girl who shadowed him, and the foreigner who raised him are just three of the key influencers on his life. Their actions meant that a Hebrew child was reared as a prince of Egypt and became one of the greatest leaders of all time.
Each woman who influenced the life of Moses was guided by God to bring his plans to pass. As you read about their lives you will discover the unique role women have to be mightily used of God too.

"Dorothy Patterson helps us understand what it was to be a woman touched by the visionary, creative, and courageous life of Moses."

Jaye Martin, Director of Womenís Leadership and Instructor, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky


"This is one of the best books on women I have ever read! It is thoroughly engaging, practically enriching and extremely relevant for women today."

Debbie Stuart, Director of Women's Ministry, Prestonwood Baptist Church, Plano, Texas


"Behind every great man . . . are many influential women! Dorothy Patterson's book illustrates that truth through an insightful look at the women in the life of Moses. I enthusiastically recommend Touched by Greatness."

Robert Jefress, Pastor, First Baptist Church, Dallas, Texas


"The vignettes encourage, edify, challenge, and motivate women of all ages, regardless of their giftedness or social status, to offer themselves as vessels to be used to glorify their heavenly Father."

Patricia A. Ennis, Professor & Director of Homemaking Programs, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas


"This extensive and eloquently written work tells the inspirational stories of women who overcame major challenges and setbacks allowing God to do the work He intended through the life of Moses. Without these women who were willing to go against the norm to protect and preserve family, Moses would not have lived to accomplish what God intended. It is absolutely one of the most fascinating books written about the significance mothers and women play in family life."

Glenda Eitel, Registered Nurse I Campus Clinic, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas


"Dorothy Patterson reveals the creativity of God in working through women in a variety of circumstances to prepare this man of God. Every woman will perceive in these examples the potential to be used by God to influence and change another life. With a foundation of careful exegesis, readers are challenged to apply these lessons of sacrifice and courage in the context of daily decisions to influence another generation."

Tammi Ledbetter, News Editor, Southern Baptist TEXAN


"She masterfully imparts historical insights, inspiration, and instruction for women desiring to grow in wisdom serving the Lord Jesus Christ while interacting with those around them, great or small"

Lennie B. Knight, Wife of Dr. Richard Knight, campus physician at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas


"From the intensely important roles of his mother, wives, and sister, to the small, unnamed players in this drama, each woman's involvement in Moses' life shaped a man called by God."

Raelene Soritau, author, songwriter, International relations Emanuel University of Oradea, Romania.


"Dr. Dorothy Patterson's thought-provoking book chronicles God's carefully crafted plan to shape the life of Moses though the women who influenced his life. Women everywhere will be inspired to be women of influence as they observe the examples of Jochebed, Miriam, and even the more obscure women who played their part in God's redemption story for the nation Israel."

Marge Lenow, Director of Womenís Ministry, Bellevue Baptist Church, Memphis, Tennessee


"Mrs. Patterson shares insights from several lifelong passions-in depth Bible study, observation of the role and high value of women in society and family, and the history of God's people, Israel especially during Moses' leadership. "

Michael H. Eden, Professor of Theology and Islamic Studies, Associate Director of Institute of Christian Apologetics, Associate Dean of Graduate Studies , New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, New Orleans, Louisana


"this prolific author and woman of God has crafted an excellent resource for Bible study and personal enrichment."

Zhava Glaser, author, Adjunct Professor of Biblical Hebrew, Feinberg Center for Messianic Jewish Studies, Talbot School of Theology, La Mirada, California


"Dorothy Patterson is one of the most engaging teachers I have ever had the privilege to sit under. As she writes this new book Touched by Greatness, she once again has captured the student's heart and mind with her approach to the women in the life of Moses. Not only does she teach the scriptural text, she includes history, quotations, illustrations, interesting facts surrounding the woman, and even a teaching outline to make it so practical for anyone to use this to teach others. This will be one book all women will want to read and then share."

Chris Adams, Senior Lead Women's Ministry Specialist, LifeWay Christian Resources


"Dr. Dorothy Patterson presents deep Biblical insights and unchanging principles pertinent to the 21st century woman."

Monica Rose, Professor of Women's Ministry, Liberty University, Lynchburg, Virginia


"Touched by Greatness is a book that will inspire, challenge and encourage women to be more Christ-like in their everyday lives. This book will help women understand the importance of their unique and meaningful roles -- even when the world does not take note or reward their efforts. Dr. Patterson's wisdom makes clear that whatever we do for Christ -- whether in a major role or one in the background in service to others -- will last and count for eternity."

Janice Shaw Crouse, Director and Senior Fellow, The Beverly LaHaye Institute, Concerned Women for America, Washington, D.C
