The Reformation was led by men like Luther, Calvin and Zwingli who revolutionized their world and ours. But there were also many remarkable women who defied social biases and traditions with a dauntless commitment to God’s Word. This is a podcast with author Sukeshinie Goonatilleke and Adam Ramdin digging deeper into her Women of the reformation book about the true stories of women who battled through trials and challenges to stand up for God. These women were heads of state, writers, activists, poets and scholars but they were also very human, with their own loves, fears, heartbreaks and temptations. When we are called to stand for our faith, we can be inspired by their legacy.
Sukeshinie Goonatilleke loves a good story and has been telling them as far back as she can remember. Her first article was published in Insight magazine in 1998 and she regularly contributed articles to the magazine for many years after. She spent a number of years directing and producing children’s and youth theatre and worked as a drama teacher in her native country of Sri Lanka. She and her husband moved to Australia in 2006. She currently writes and curates web content for Lineage Journey and is a freelance script writer for The Incredible Journey, which are both Christian media ministries. When she isn’t researching or writing, Sukeshinie is homeschooling her children or curled up in a corner with a good book. She lives with her husband and two daughters in Melbourne, Australia.
