{Review} Bad Girls of the Bible

image Bad Girls of the Bible written by Liz Curtis Higgs

"Good Girls and Bad Girls both need a Savior. The goodness of your present life can't open the doors of heaven for you. The badness of your past life can't keep you out either."

This is the underlying message taught throughout this book using ten Biblical examples of some of the “less admirable” women we have all come to know in traditional Bible study and reading.

I not only enjoyed this book, I needed this book.

Liz Curtis Higgs has a fun, easy-to-read and honest writing style. Each chapter starts with a fictional/modern retelling based on the Biblical example followed by a more Bible study, verse-by-verse based approach. While approaching some serious topics, Higgs still managed to make me laugh at a few points, making the book an even more enjoyable read.

Higgs uses many examples from her own past. She made me feel comfortable, like I was reading a book that a friend wrote.

Some of the women looked at in the book are:

  • Potiphar’s Wife
  • Lot’s Wife
  • The Woman at the Well
  • Rahab
  • Jezebel

This book could easily be read on your own or as a book study with other women.
