Be challenged and inspired by the stories of incredible and courageous women who model a new way of following Christ.
Many have heard of the Cappadocian Fathers—that trio from the fourth century who shaped much of the way we think about our faith today. What some don’t realize is that these men were surrounded by several devout women who had a profound influence on their lives and their theology.
Dr. Carla Sunberg has uncovered the fragments of details that remain about seven revolutionary women, whom she calls the Cappadocian Mothers. In so doing, Sunberg introduces to us a group of saints who practiced some very Uncommon Virtues. You’ll be challenged and inspired by the stories of these incredible and courageous women who model a new way of following Christ.

"Dare to read it with openness to the Spirit and you just might catch a vision of the virtuous and holy life that can be lived out in your ordinary, everyday life.”
Tara Beth Leach, Lead Pastor

"Sunberg’s writing is eloquent, inspiring, and well referenced. Her work gives long-overdue attention to the impact of virtuous women on the formation of Christian orthodoxy.”
