Really Bad Girls of the Bible

I wanted to read the book "Really Bad Girls of the Bible" by Liz Curtis Higgs because I read the first one ("Bad Girls of the Bible") and another one in the same vein ("Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible"). I love the way Higgs writes. She is funny, she is honest, and she is down to earth. My favorite thing about this series is the way she modernizes the women of the Bible. We read Bible stories and make them out to be just stories. When she modernizes the stories she really brings them to life. I love that there are study questions with this book, too. Higgs definitely wants you to think about each woman and every aspect of where they went wrong.

The other thing I love about this book is it involves women in the Bible you rarely hear about - Athaliah and Jael are just two examples.

I highly recommend this book to anyone, but especially women. It will give you hope and make you realize that change is possible. It will also help you avoid the same pitfalls these women made so many years ago.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
