from the Bible’s Really Bad Girls.
Eight of the Bible’s most notorious females strut across the pages of Really Bad Girls of the Bible with troubles that still hit home in the twenty-first century.
The Medium of En Dor crossed over to the dark side. Jael stood up to a ruthless enemy. TheAdulteress was caught between a rock and a hard place. Athaliah made a bid for power that ended badly. Bathsheba captured the wandering eye of a king. Herodias made a cruel request of her husband. Tamar exchanged her widow’s weeds for a harlot’s garb. And theBleeding Woman had a serious health issue only a great physician could handle.
“Higgs does such a remarkable job telling their stories that many of the Good Book’s ‘bad girls’ become downright sympathetic.… Higgs is a refreshingly astute biblical commentator…(and) ably points readers to ‘good girl’ tips they can apply from the Bible’s cautionary tales.”
Really Bad Girls of the Bible shines a spotlight on God’s sovereignty, demonstrating one life-changing truth: God rules the lives of those He loves with mercy, compassion, and hope.

My thoughts: 5 stars out of 5
Liz Curtis Higgs has a way to tell stories, making them alive. The power of a great storytelling is what I see when I read her books. Embracing the stories with the Biblical truth, she makes each woman special, filled with the unique purpose… Each of them had the specific appointed tasks to perform, and nothing escaped God’s eye, when He was there to lead all really bad girls in Biblical times to fulfill His purposes.
I love her contemporary stories of the women, each depicting specific woman in the Bible. Higgs is teaching with humor and insights.
