Actuary LadyNorcross, GAAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Learning about wisdom with the Queen of ShebaAugust 27, 2015Actuary LadyNorcross, GAAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Queen of Sheba was only one of many in King Solomon's day to hear of his God-granted wisdom-- but she was the one who HAD to see it in person (and as queen, she was able), and who had to learn about this God directly from him, even if the trip took weeks by camel.
Liz Curtis Higgs, with always-outstanding scholarship, takes us verse by verse in 1 Kings 10 to show us who this Queen really was--not what our culture in art or movies might have made her out to be. In the process, we gain a bit of this Wisdom, as we are reminded that God will also grant our request, and in abundance, if we, like Solomon, ask Him for wisdom.
Extra resources for "It's Good to Be Queen" include questions perfect for further in-depth Bible study, and online discussion videos from Liz on each of the ten chapters.

Told in the style of The Girls Still Got It, Its Good to Be Queen is a detailed commentary disguised as a fascinating story full of practical truth women can strive to apply to life. The book is based on 1 Kings 10:1-13, the Queen of Shebas visit to King Solomon. Higgs takes this passage apart, verse by verse, phrase by phrase, to introduce readers to this historical queen.

From the back cover: Sheba Journeyed Across the Desert with a Caravan of Riches, Only to Find the Greatest Treasure of Them All. So Can You.
When it comes to famous queens of the Bible, we know the good one, Queen Esther, and the bad one, Queen Jezebel. Now meet the wise one, the queen of Sheba, who traveled to Jerusalem to test the mind and heart of a king.
Her quest for wisdom will surprise you, challenge you, inspire you, change you. This wealthy royal from antiquity will show you how to live boldly, seek after truth, ask the right questions, encourage others, receive graciously, and honor the Lord above all.
Shedding new light on this ancient biblical role model, Liz Curtis Higgs unveils timeless wisdom for all who aspire to please the king of Kings.
I dont think there are many books written about the Queen of Sheba. Good thing we have Liz Curtis Higgs to help make up for that situation. The whole account of the meeting of the Queen with King Solomon occurs in 1 Kings Chapter 10, verses 1-13. Doesnt sound like much does it? However there is much truth to be learned and Ms. Higgs has mined these verses and presented it all in her book. In ten chapters Ms. Higgs unfolds ten wisdoms that we can learn and apply to our lives. With chapter headings from Its Good to be Humbled to Its Good to End Well all I can say is that this is really marvelous and I am glad to have received this book. At the end there are Discussion Questions and a Study Guide. This book will keep you thinking. I believe that everyone should have a copy of this book and it would make a great gift for friends and family!

By Liz Curtis Higgs
When I first received the book, Its Good to Be Queen: Becoming as Bold, Gracious, and Wise as the Queen of Sheba by Liz Curtis Higgs I thought it was going to be a Christian historical fiction novel. But to my surprise, I found a well researched book on King Salomon and the Queen of Sheba taken from 1 Kings Chapter 10 in the Bible.
After having just finished the book, Unspoken by Francine Rivers, which tells the story of King David and Bathsheba along with their son, Salomon, the book, Its Good to Be Queen was a perfect transition to the life of King Salomon.
Its Good to Be Queen looks at 10 lessons we can learn from the Queen of Sheba which are: be bold, be open, seek wise counsel, be humbled, be honest, encourage everyone, give generously, receive graciously and end well.
If you are interested in a book that will help you grow in wisdom and in your walk with the Lord, then this is a book for you.
