Forced Choices: Best Woman in the Old Testament

It’s time for a new poll. In our last one, I asked about your favorite European cities. And I suppose it’s not too much of a surprise that London (27%) and Paris (21%) came out on top. I suspect that may come from the fact that these are the cities most people visit. But I was a little surprised to see Athens at the bottom with only 2%. I’ve never been there, but it seems like it would be cool.

Anyway, enough with sounding like a travel blog. Let’s get back to the Bible. And this time I’d like to hear what you think about the women in the Old Testament. Who is your favorite? As usual, I can’t list them all. I can’t even list all the cool ones. Instead, I will arbitrarily pick a few and put them on the list. You’ll probably get annoyed that I’ve left out your personal favorite and leave a comment. That’s fine. But vote for one of the ones on the list anyway.

And I’m also not going to give you any guidelines for what “best” or “favorite” means. That’s up to you. I won’t try to explain what “woman” means either. If you’re unsure on that one, call your mom.

So, what do you think? Who is the best woman in the Bible? Use the poll in the sidebar to vote. And let me know in the comments if I’ve left out someone even better.
