I highly recommend "Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible". Liz Curtis Higgs not only writes wonderful fiction, but she is an insightful Bible teacher. Both of these talents are brilliantly showcased in all of her "Bad Girls" books! She begins the study with a modern-day fictional tale to get us thinking as the Biblical characters would. She then opens the Word of God and takes you through scripture line-by-line to reveal the bad girl's story. These are the most wonderful Bible studies! A MUST HAVE for yourself or your Bible study group!
I love the way Liz uses humor to convey her powerful and insightful messages. The story of Rachel and Leah is told in such a fresh way here, I was really moved by it. I showed this book to my ladies group at church and it inspired them to start a Bible study based on this series.
Wow! The 'girlfriend theology' truly shines through in this study. It changes how you read the Word when you can see the people in the Bible as real people with real emotions, real issues, and a REAL GOD! This book helps you to see that.
