Publisher Comments:

Women everywhere marvel at those “good girls” in Scripture-Sarah, Mary, Esther-but on most days, thats not who they see when they look in the mirror. Most women (if theyre honest) see the selfishness of Sapphira or the deception of Delilah. They catch of glimpse of Jezebels take-charge pride or Eves disastrous disobedience. Like Bathsheba, Herodias, and the rest, todays modern woman is surrounded by temptations, exhausted by the demands of daily living, and burdened by her own desires.

So whats a good girl to do? Learn from their lives, says beloved humor writer Liz Curtis Higgs, and by Gods grace, choose a better path. In Bad Girls of the Bible, Higgs offers a unique and clear-sighted approach to understanding those “other women” in Scripture, combining a contemporary retelling of their stories with a solid, verse-by-verse study of their mistakes and what lessons women today can learn from them.

Whether they were “Bad to the Bone,” “Bad for a Season, but Not Forever” or only “Bad for a Moment,” these infamous sisters show women how not to handle the challenges of life. With her trademark humor and encouragement, Liz Curtis Higgs teaches us how to avoid their tragic mistakes and joyfully embrace grace.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [243]-[245]).

I really liked this book. The short stories at the beginning of each chapter is a modern retelling. Then Higgs breaks fown the story with lots of her own thoughts and reflections that is packed with humor. She also shows us what we can learn then there are about 8 questions on each woman and how it may relate to us which can be used in a group or even on your own for your own reflection.

I found this book to be a refreshing look at Bible study. It wasn't dry it was new it was fun, it was humorous without loosing the message.
