Book Review: Bad Girls of the Bible


Bad Girls of the Bible
By Liz Curtis Higgs

When I saw this book I knew I needed to read it.  There was something about the description that completely drew me in.  This book was a GREAT read!  I read it very quickly, I would read any chance I had, or I’d lay down to go to sleep and read until I got “tired” but never got tired!  This book is about ten bad girls in the bible.  The girls included are:  Eve, Potiphar’s Wife, Lot’s Wife, Woman at the Well, Delilah, Sapphira, Rahab, Jezebel, Michal, and The Sinful Woman.  In each chapter Liz sets up the story by retelling each woman’s story in a modern way.  I loved this aspect because, for me personally, it helps me remember details better.  After each retelling, she then breaks down each woman’s story, using bible verses and other commentator’s opinions.  Liz has a great writing style as well, and brings in a simplistic but humorous take to these stories.  At the end of each chapter there is a section on what we can learn from this particular bad girl, then there is also a section of questions you can think on and answer.  Overall, I really loved this book!  It was educational, but not at all boring, and I am very interested in some more of Liz Curtis Higgs’ books!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from BloggingforBooks . com in exchange for an honest opinion

Nice! I wouldn't necessarily call Rahab, Woman at the well bad girls. I'm curious about what the author said about them. She should have put Sarah in there too! :)
