Bad Girls of the Bible: And What We Can Learn from Them


Product Description

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

So what's a good girl to do? Learn from their lives, says Liz Curtis Higgs, and by God's 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 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, Higgs teaches you how to avoid their tragic mistakes and joyfully embrace grace. Includes reflection questions at the end of each chapter.

Publisher's Description

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

So what’s a good girl to do? Learn from their lives, says beloved humor writer Liz Curtis Higgs, and by God’s 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.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Bad Girls of the Bible

"Liz takes—with humility and humor—the evangelical message and puts it in a lens that anybody can look through. A truly remarkable accomplishment."
—Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly

"The entertainment value of the book is obvious, but the take-home extra is the Bible study. Who but Liz Curtis Higgs could so creatively reveal God’s compassion, unconditional love, and mercy through such ’Bad Girls’ in scripture?"
—Carol Kent, speaker and author of Becoming aWoman of Excellence

"A fresh concept—looking at what women have done wrong to figure out how we can live right. The conversational style and friendly, relational, upbeat tone (so true to Liz) are wonderful—sassy and yet challenging and inspirational. And the questions are top-notch!"
—Ramona Cramer Tucker, former editor, Today’s ChristianWoman

"Liz has brought a blended format of fiction, biblical commentary, and thought-provoking questions to each of these characters. I love the way she slips modern-day flesh on biblical truth."
—Darlene Hepler, former director of women’s ministries, Church of the Open Door, Elyria, Ohio

"Bad Girls of the Bible is not only a hoot to read, it is full of serious warnings about shaky choices and serious encouragement to take God’s way for our own good."
—Gloria Gaither, author, speaker, and lyricist

"I love Liz’s work! She entertains while teaching and leaves me with points to ponder long after. Her insights are fresh and exciting and will draw readers back into the Word."
—Francine Rivers, best-selling author of Redeeming Love

"I loved the down-to-earth realism. Instead of an airbrushed, plastic feel, Bad Girls of the Bible jumps off the pages with fresh, relevant, and engaging applications."
—BeckyMoltumyr, Brookside Church, Omaha, Nebraska

"In her creative, fun-loving way, Liz retells the stories of the Bible. She delivers a knockout punch of conviction as she clearly illustrates the lessons of Scripture."
—Lorna Dueck, former co-host of 100 Huntley Street

    This book makes the stories real and more life applicable. I also had a chance to look over old stories I've heard a million times and see them in a different light.

    WHAT A RELIEF TO KNOW THERE WAS AND IS WOMEN LIKE HOW I USED TO BE. THIS IS A VERY INTIMATE BIBLE STUDY INTO YOUR PAST AND EVEN MAYBE YOUR PRESENT. HOW WONDERFUL TO KNOW THERE IS GOD'S GRACE.

    I was reluctant to start this study, but it has been everything and more that I expected. Liz Curtis Higgs writes with her readers in mind keeping it very down to earth. It has given me a different perspective on the women highlighted in this study. I would highly recommend it to all women.

    Our Christian book club selected this to read and everyone seemed to enjoy the discussion and thought the author did a good job of interspersing scripture with her chapters on the "bad girls". My opinion is that it is a book aimed more at a "middle age" generation rather than an older one. My daughter will probably enjoy it even more than I did.

    Bad Girls of the Bible was not as good as I thought it would be. I did not particular like this writing. It did not capture my attention. I felt it to be more geared toward a young generation or those who are inspired by novel reading. If I had to recommend this book, it would definitely be a recommendation for the teen demographic. I highly recommend this book. "I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review".
