Publisher's Description:

Sarah mistreated her maidservant. Hagar despised her mistress. Rebekah manipulated her son. Leah claimed her sister’s husband. And Rachel envied her fertile sister. Wait a minute. Aren’t they the Good Girls of the Bible?

You bet. They’re also decidedly human. Like the famous men in their lives–Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob–these five women from Genesis often stubbed their toes along the rocky path of righteousness. They were far from evil, but hardly perfect; mostly good, yet slightly bad. In other words, these ancient sisters look a lot like us.

More than one million readers around the world have taken a walk on the wild side with best-selling author Liz Curtis Higgs, as she brings to vivid life the ancient stories of two dozen Bad Girls of the Bible, from Eve to Mary Magdalene. Her unique brand of "girlfriend theology" is upbeat and encouraging, laced with humor and heartfelt self-disclosure, yet built on a foundation of solid research, including 14 translations of the Scriptures and more than 100 resource books and commentaries.

In Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible–designed both for individual reading and for group use–Liz once again combines contemporary fiction and verse-by-verse commentary in her novel approach to Bible study, offering eye-opening lessons for women who long to know, "Does God love me, flaws and all? Can God use me, ‘as is’?"

Publisher's Weekly

Higgs revisits the well of biblical women for this continuation of her hugely successful Bad Girls of the Bible series. Whereas Bad Girls of the Bible and Really Bad Girls of the Bible tackled the Jezebels and Salomes, often demonstrating that these women were not as nefarious as later traditions would suggest, this one takes a different tack, looking at five “good girls” of the Bible and finding them seriously flawed. Focusing on Genesis, Higgs looks at Sarah (a control freak), Hagar (who was filled with bitterness), Rebekah (a conniving schemer who played favorites with her sons), Leah (another schemer) and Rachel (who was consumed by jealousy). One theme that emerges clearly is how fertility, or the lack of it, dominated these women’s lives in a patriarchal culture. As always, Higgs’s tone is chatty and girlfriendish, addressing the reader in the second person as she emphasizes the lesson—and the humor—in each woman’s tale. And as always, this one capably blends fictional vignettes of contemporary “bad girls” with in-depth exegesis of their biblical counterparts’ stories. Higgs also reveals her own foibles as she weaves personal anecdotes into each chapter, underscoring the book’s overall theme: even faithful women can sometimes be hurtful and selfish.
