Publisher Comments:

You know Ruth’s story. Now meet her in person. And prepare to be changed. Walk with Ruth as she travels from Moab to Bethlehem, certain of her calling, yet uncertain of her future. Hold Naomi’s hand and watch love put the pieces of her broken life back together. And hang out with Boaz, their kinsman-redeemer, who blesses both women and honors God, big time.  With best-selling author Liz Curtis Higgs by your side, you’ll tarry in the corners of their ancient houses, listen to their conversations, and consider every word of every verse until you can say, “I totally get the book of Ruth. And I see what God is trying to teach me through this rags-to-riches redemption story—he has a plan for my life.” Girl, does he ever! Think of it as time travel without gimmicks, gizmos, or a DeLorean: a novel approach to Bible study that leaps from past to present, gleaning timeless truths that speak to the heart.

Review:

"The bestselling author (Bad Girls of the Bible) takes readers on a time travel trip to the biblical world of Ruth. Higgs's contemporary, conversational style provides insight into the themes of strong women, devotion, and faith found in the biblical book. A perfect blend of humor, extensive research, descriptive language, and insightful commentary brings to vibrant life Ruth and her relationships with mother-in-law Naomi and second husband Boaz. Breathe in the smells of ancient Bethlehem; hear the sounds of laborers threshing in the fields; see the emotions on the faces of these women; and understand how God walked with them through their lives. Readers view the events with the help of friendly tour guide Higgs, who provides extremely detailed information in a way that's enjoyable and memorable. Each chapter ends with a 'Ruth in Real Life' feature, in which women share personal messages about their husbands, mothers, and daughters-in-law to emphasize the contemporary application of the biblical lesson. The text also includes a map, discussion questions, a study guide, and tips for further reading. Agent: Sara Fortenberry. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

The Girls still got it by Liz Curtis Higgs

Reviewed by Moirae the fates book reviews.



You know Ruth's story. Now meet her in person. And prepare to be changed.

Walk with Ruth as she travels from Moab to Bethlehem, certain of her calling, yet uncertain of her future. Hold Naomi's hand and watch love put the pieces of her broken life back together. And hang out with Boaz, their kinsman-redeemer, who blesses both women and honors God, big time.

With best-selling author Liz Curtis Higgs by your side, you’ll tarry in the corners of their ancient houses, listen to their conversations, and consider every word of every verse until you can say, "I totally get the book of Ruth. And I see what God is trying to teach me through this rags-to-riches redemption story�"he has a plan for my life."

Girl, does he ever!

Think of it as time travel without gimmicks, gizmos, or a DeLorean: a novel approach to Bible study that leaps from past to present, gleaning timeless truths that speak to the heart. (Synopsis provided by Goodreads)


This one is a study of the book of Ruth. Higgs changed things up a little with her style in this one, while it's still funny, there is no fictional story before she dives in. The whole book is a study of Ruth.


The way she handled this one was sort of like a tour guide in a time machine. I really liked it and I learned a lot about Ruth and Naomi. Higgs can hold your attention which is really important in a Bible study book.


I really love Higgs' style and her books, she's a lot of fun and her books will make you laugh. We get a verse by verse break down in this one as well as her other books. If the verse needs it she breaks the verse up into words and talks about each word.


When reading this one I felt like I was standing off in the distance with Higgs watching everything unfold. She used multiple points of reference in this one and she uses them all and tells us what each individual reference says. She also will use her own reference and she calls it the "Lizzy revised Edition." Which she uses modern day speak to drive the point home.


Men can get something out of this, but I'd recommend it more for women then men.
