After spending a week with Liz in Israel I could not wait until the book of Ruth came out and I was not disappointed. As soon as it was available I purchased 25 workbooks and the DVD for a fall Bible study at my church. Everyone enjoyed the study, in fact several ladies were so caught up in the study they finished the book before the study was done. That's a first.
Liz's personality is contagious and her love for God's word is too. Both come through her writings. The ladies loved that Liz taught the Book of Ruth verse by verse and sometimes phrase by phrase. I highly recommend this study to all ladies. The beautiy of it is that it can be done in a group or individually and still receive the full value of the study. The DVDs enhanced our study but did not penalize you if you missed a session.
The Girl's Still Got It by Liz Curtis Higgs is an enlightening read about Ruth. Loved the cover copy-take a walk with Ruth and the God who rocked her world. This would make you read the book just by that. I am a huge fiction reader but love how Liz writes, so I read her non fiction as well.
We travel with Ruth from Moab to Bethlehem and watch how God works in Ruth, Naomi and Boaz's lives. She has made this book of the bible so much more understandable and how God uses this rags-to-riches redemption story and how pertinent this is to my own life.
Love how she goes thru each chapter and thoroughly explains it and then throws a modern day Ruth in real life story in and how they tie together. That was really a neat way to add to the storyline.
After reading this book you can never read the story of Ruth in the bible the same way after reading this book. Liz has included a great study guide in the back of the book which is very helpful. Pleas look in the very back for a priceless rendition of the "Righteous Ruth Rap"--priceless and worth the price of the book just for it.
Thank to Waterbrook Press for my free copy just for my honest opinion.
