Women’s Bible Study List by Bible Character

Not long ago I really wanted a list of women’s Bible studies by book of the Bible. When I googled and could find nothing of the nature, I formed this list with the help of readers. Pretty handy, huh? I tried to keep the first list strictly to studies designated to the entire book of the Bible so that if you were searching for a study of a certain book, you could easily find one.

Today’s list is a bit different in that the studies do not cover an entire book of the Bible, but it is a women’s Bible study list by Bible character.  Some of these cross over from the previous list, but I believe this is another list that is very handy. I would again love your help in adding to the list in the comments!

Life Lessons from Women in the Bible by Rhonda Kelley

Would you share with us the Bible character studies you’ve worked and loved?







If you liked this, you'll enjoy...


  1. To Live Is Christ by Beth Moore is about the life of Paul. I wasn’t sure how this study would go: would it focus on a specific Pauline epistle or would this be a study of Paul’s life? Well, it’s definitely a study on Paul’s life with journeys through many of his books. I’ve gained so much through this study! Highly recommended 🙂

  2. Hi Rachel….what a great idea. I would love to link this to my blog (www.TitusTwoFriends.blogspot.com) at some point — if you don’t mind. 🙂

    I am leading a ladies’ Bible study at our homeschooling co-op right now, using an out-of-print book from Above Rubies (Nancy Campbell) by Delwyn McAlister, “Your Price is Far Above Rubies” — it is based on EVERY verse of Proverbs 31:10-31, the Proverbs 31 Woman. I received permission from Nancy Campbell to re-print it for our class.

    My class did a really nice Bible study last year called “God’s Priceless Woman”–and I’m not at home right now, so can’t give you the details. However, it was SO good, we always had outstanding discussions.

    Another one that our church ladies’s Bible study did a few years ago, one by John MacArthur, was a monthly study (well, it was 12 lessons, you could do it weekly too)….I don’t remember the exact name but it was something like “12 Extraordinary Women of the Bible.” It had a book along with a workbook, and a leader’s guide. It was “okay” but we didn’t have the discussions in that group (church ladies) like we do in my homeschool moms group. 🙂

    Keep up the good work. I don’t know if you know Sara E. Stuebs personally, but she’s a friend of mine and told me about your blog….I’m going to have to go digging around here now. 🙂

    God’s blessings!

    1. Always wonderful to read of awesome Bible study discussions! Thanks for the mentions and your love for God’s Word- it’s a joy to see, even in e-form. 🙂

  3. Denise Skinner says:

    Here is another one to add to your list: Malachi – Lisa Harper published by Lifeway last year. I facilitated this study and it was well received.

    1. Thanks, Denise! I haven’t done that one personally, so I wasn’t sure of the exact focus. Thanks for the mention!
