Books4JesusBrookfield, WIAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great ReadJuly 5, 2016Books4JesusBrookfield, WIAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Although the title of this book is slightly misleading, this is a great read. The women arent all wicked, some live in wicked times, others had wicked things done to them. There are 20 womens stories from Scripture. Your story may be in included, as a reflection of one of these women. There are life lessons to be mined in this book.
It reads like fiction; you get drawn into the story of each woman. The footnotes are worth reading and give valuable insight. Each story ends with two sections; The Times, which gives such great background information, and The Takeaway questions to ponder.
There are the truly wicked, such as Jezebel who discovered rather too late that it simply doesnt pay to fight with God. The wicked smart Abigail who bears the burden of her foolish husband, her quick thinking saved the lives of her household. Then there is the wicked crazy, Mary Magdalene, a tortured soul whose mind has already descended to hell while her body lives on earth. Jesus delivers her from demon possession and all she wants to do is serve Him. Not only does she perfume Jesus feet and wipe them with her tears, hers is the first name He speaks after leaving the tomb.
I particularly enjoyed the authors insight and background information. These women came alive for me in this book. Read a few stories, or the entire book, you will be richer for having done so.
The Phone Tree EdifierAtlanta, GAAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5A Phone Tree Book Review|Wicked Women of the BibleJanuary 13, 2016The Phone Tree EdifierAtlanta, GAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Wicked can be defined in many ways, based on Spanglers revealed definitions. In her book Wicked Women of the Bible, she introduced the concept of wicked from two unique perspectives. She showed how, whether wicked good or wicked bad, the women of the Bible had a story to tell that was both purposed and meaningful.
Typically, I am not a huge fan of authors taking narrative liberties with Biblical content. I feel that it sometimes skews the truth of Gods word and confuses the reader. In this book, however, I felt that Spangler did an acceptable job of presenting each womans story. Her writing was considerate and thought-provoking. I loved her inclusion of the times, the takeaway questions, a Scriptural index, and highlights from her book Women of the Bible.
I could easily see this book being a Christian book club feature or the subject of a womens Bible study class.

Aisha5 Stars Out Of 5Bible Study Wicked Women of the BibleDecember 15, 2015AishaQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I loved it. I thought it was an interesting way to get a woman like me to read the Bible more. It was interesting to learn about so many women in the Bible that I had never heard of. The fact the each person I read about could relate to something about me has made me think of my life and the outcomes. Life has journeys just like the women in the Bible but if you learn from them just like these women it will be the best adventure ever. Thank you Miss Ann Spangler for this. I can't wait for the next book to read and the answer the questions again. I also recommended this book to the Pastor's Wife and she was intrigued with it.
