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.

Ten of the Bibles best-known femmes fatales parade across the pages of Bad Girls of the Bible with situations that sound oh-so-familiar.
Eve had food issues. Potiphars Wife and Delilah had man trouble. Lots Wife and Michal couldnt let go of the past, Sapphira couldnt let go of money, and Jezebel couldnt let go of anything. Yet the Woman at the Well had her thirst quenched at last, while Rahab and the Sinful Woman left their sordid histories behind.
Let these Bad Girls show you why studying the Bible has never been more fun!
"When she was perfect, beautiful, and innocent, I found no toehold where I could connect with Eve. When she was tempted by her flesh, humbled by her sin, and redeemed by her God, I could sing out, Oh, sister Eve! Can we talk?"
from Bad Girls of the Bible
