Lessons in Good Living From the Bible's Bad News Belles. 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.… (més)

I purchased this book from Amazon to #buddyread with @kaylasonlyheart. All opinions are my own. Bad Girls of The Bible and What We Can Learn From Them by Liz Curtis Higgs. Oh how powerful women are. The author takes a biblical story ties it into a modern day story and a section to walk through all the steps of learning just how much of a valuable lesson we can take away from each woman separately. I loved the style in which this book was written. Sometimes while reading the bible you can almost displace yourself because it was so long ago, but with this book and putting a modern spin on a story makes you think wow! Even the problems of biblical times only disguise themselves in today's world.

Review:

"Really Bad Girls of the Bible" by Liz Curtis Higgs

My Thoughts....

I loved this author's goal of writing this book..."My goal is simple: to help women embrace the grace of God with joy and abandon!" and I think she did a wonderful job at it. I will say I was able to learn from the read. Some of these characters I hadn't read about and it was quite interesting reading about them in the modern day version. I was definitely found opening up my Bible to read about these 'bad girls' and definitely looking at their stories quite differently seeing how God pulled them through it all.

It was quite interesting in seeing so many of these traits that were portrayed by these 'bad girls' can be found in us today. Wow, some things just don't change! This author does a wonderful job at relating the 'Biblical archetypes to the what is going on now,' giving us some 'humor, empathy and intellect.'

There is also discussion questions and study guide for ones personal use or for your a study groups that are included.

If you are looking for a informative and interesting read about 'Really Bad Girls of the Bible' I would recommend read to you as a good read.

I received this book from Blogging for Books to read and review. ( )

An AWFUL book. BAD romance novel masquerading as Bible study. With worse theology. Apparently, all we "girls" need to do to be "good" is obey pappa/God and be loyal to our husband. The only reason this feminist pastor didn't throw it across the room is because it was a library copy.

And when she was good
She was very, very good,
But when she was bad she was horrid.
