International Media Ministries created a video series called The Women of the Bible, focusing on the stories of Ruth, Rahab, Tamar, and Bathsheba. Read more here.

Denise Godwin says these stories have been in high demand in Pakistan and Afghanistan recently. “We heard from partners in the region that in Pakistan, so many people are reaching out and asking for information about Christianity because of the increase in persecution from the Taliban there. So we are so excited to be able to release The Women of the Bible in the Pashtun language and get those in a form that they’re able to share in that country.”
