Ten years ago Essex launched the bestselling Bible study Bad Girls of the Bible: Exploring Women of Questionable Virtue. It has become a favorite of teachers and preachers everywhere, with Bible study groups, sermon series, retreat themes, and seminary courses forming across the country to learn from the book as well as the Bible.
Now Essex has returned with a command performance focusing on fourteen new stories of biblical women. In More Bad Girls of the Bible Essex explores Hagar, Shiphrah, and Puah, Miriam, Zipporah, Bathsheba, Rizpah, and Huldah. Bad girls also come from the New Testament in the crippled woman, the Syrophoenician, Martha and Mary, the Samaritan woman at the well, and Mary Magdalene.
