Liz is the comforting, courage-giving friend every woman prays for. Theres no voice like Lizs. And theres no woman who can afford to miss the epic wisdom of the queen of Sheba."
Ann Voskamp, New York Times best-selling author of One Thousand Gifts and The Greatest Gift
"In this stunning account of a woman that most people know very little about, Liz has masterfully (and responsibly) brought fresh insights to the story of the mysterious queen of Sheba. Her writing unites imagery and research in a seamless, spectacular way, and I learned many facts that breathed life into a few short passages of Scripture. I walked away from this book inspired to be more like the courageous, bold, wise, humble, and generous woman I met on the page. This might be Lizs best work yet."
Angie Smith, best-selling author of Chasing God and What Women Fear
"Liz Curtis Higgs frequently writes on womens issues. Here she tells the story of the Queen of Sheba. The Bible tells us little about this queen except for her visit to King Solomon in the first 13 verses of I Kings, chapter 10. The queen is intrigued by Solomons reputation and wants many questions answered.
Higgs mixes a bit of fiction with her nonfiction. As an introduction to her work, she pens a brief message signed "Sheba." Concluding each of the first nine chapters is another short note from Sheba, which includes her comments on her situation as it is treated in the given chapter. In this manner, Higgs discusses each of the 13 verses phrase by phrase.
Its Good to be Queen, written in Higgs down-to-earth, informal style, is well annotated and includes interesting, thought-provoking questions for further study. It also includes comments about the implications of the verses and story for the readers life."

VickyLafayette, IndianaAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5It's Good to be QueenSeptember 9, 2015VickyLafayette, IndianaAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Come alongside as Liz Curtis Higgs, with her unique writing style, delves into the story of a queen that we know little about, Queen of Sheba. Her biblical story is found in 1 Kings 1 and ends with verse 13. Only 12 verses but packed with a lot of insight on this queen. The Queen of Sheba travels to Jerusalem to test the mind and heart of King Solomon but she came away from that meeting with much more than she envisioned when she started her journey.
There are 10 chapters that will enlighten you with humor and truths. Each chapter starts with a personal fictional narrative from the Queen of Sheba then the author enhances each verse in that particular chapter with lots of commentary. The chapters deal with boldness, openness, seeking wise counsel, honesty, encouragement, praising God, giving, receiving graciously, and ending well. Sheba not only left Jerusalem but her former way of life, her old gods, her old beliefs so she could put on the new self. She left he old life-full of disbelief, distrust, disobedience and embraced a new life that honors God. He journey was orchestrated by the Holy Spirit. Sheba didn't travel to Jerusalem to be changed, but she was. You will be changed after reading her story and it may challenge you as it did me in many areas.
Not only do we learn about the Queen of Sheba through story form and insights but there are lots of notes and references along with discussion questions and chapter by chapter study guides perfect for bible study.
