Discover the Truth About
God’s Sovereignty
from the Bible’s Really Bad Girls.
 
Eight of the Bible’s most notorious females strut across the pages of Really Bad Girls of the Bible with troubles that still hit home in the twenty-first century.

The Medium of En Dor crossed over to the dark side. Jael stood up to a ruthless enemy. The Adulteress was caught between a rock and a hard place. Athaliah made a bid for power that ended badly. Bathsheba captured the wandering eye of a king. Herodias made a cruel request of her husband. Tamar exchanged her widow’s weeds for a harlot’s garb. And the Bleeding Woman had a serious health issue only a great physician could handle.

 
“Higgs does such a remarkable job telling their stories that many of the Good Book's ‘bad girls’ become downright sympathetic.... Higgs is a refreshingly astute biblical commentator...(and) ably points readers to ‘good girl’ tips they can apply from the Bible’s cautionary tales.”
—Publishers Weekly
 

Really Bad Girls of the Bible
shines a spotlight on God’s sovereignty, demonstrating one life-changing truth: God rules the lives of those He loves with mercy, compassion, and hope.

From the Inside Flap:

Women everywhere marvel at those ?good girls? in Scripture?Sarah, Mary, Esther?but on most days, that?s not who they see when they look in the mirror. Most women (if they?re honest) see the selfishness of Sapphira or the deception of Delilah. They catch of glimpse of Jezebel?s take-charge pride or Eve?s disastrous disobedience. Like Bathsheba, Herodias, and the rest, today?s modern woman is surrounded by temptations, exhausted by the demands of daily living, and burdened by her own desires.

So what?s a good girl to do? Learn from their lives, says beloved humor writer Liz Curtis Higgs, and by God?s grace, choose a better path. In Bad Girls of the Bible, Higgs offers a unique and clear-sighted approach to understanding those ?other women? in Scripture, combining a contemporary retelling of their stories with a solid, verse-by-verse study of their mistakes and what lessons women today can learn from them.

Whether they were ?Bad to the Bone,? ?Bad for a Season, but Not Forever? or only ?Bad for a Moment,? these infamous sisters show women how not to handle the challenges of life. With her trademark humor and encouragement, Liz Curtis Higgs teaches us how to avoid their tragic mistakes and joyfully embrace grace.

From the Back Cover:

"Who but Liz Curtis Higgs could so creatively reveal God's compassion, unconditional love, and mercy through such 'Bad Girls' in Scripture?"
--Carol Kent, speaker and author of Becoming a Woman of Excellence

"This work is God-breathed, the best ever to come from Liz Curtis Higgs. Absolutely life-changing! You'll alternately weep, sigh, gasp, rejoice--and yes, even giggle. And oh, is it filled with depth and grace."


--Diane Noble, best-selling author
