Popular storyteller Higgs takes a look at the vamps and tramps of the Bible, searching for the lessons these wicked women have to teach. Higgs retells these biblical stories with rollicking humor and deep insight as she teaches about the nature of sin and goodness.
Publishers Weekly
 
Ten of the Bible s best-known femmes fatales parade across the pages of Bad Girls of the Bible with situations that sound oh-so-familiar.

Eve had food issues. Potiphar s Wife and Delilah had man trouble. Lot s Wife and Michal couldn t let go of the past, Sapphira couldn t let go of money, and Jezebel couldn t let go of anything. Yet the Woman at the Well had her thirst quenched at last, while Rahab and the Sinful Woman left their sordid histories behind.
           
Let these Bad Girls show you why studying the Bible has never been more fun!
 
When she was perfect, beautiful, and innocent, I found no toehold where I could connect with Eve. When she was tempted by her flesh, humbled by her sin, and redeemed by her God, I could sing out, Oh, sister Eve! Can we talk?
from Bad Girls of the Bible

Review:

Praise for "Bad Girls of the Bible
"
"Liz takes--with humility and humor--the evangelical message and puts it in a lens that anybody can look through. A truly remarkable accomplishment."
"--Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly
""The entertainment value of the book is obvious, but the take-home extra is the Bible study. 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 aWoman of Excellence
""A fresh concept--looking at what women have done wrong to figure out how we can live right. The conversational style and friendly, relational, upbeat tone (so true to Liz) are wonderful--sassy and yet challenging and inspirational. And the questions are top-notch!"
"--Ramona Cramer Tucker, former editor, Today's ChristianWoman
""Liz has brought a blended format of fiction, biblical commentary, and thought-provoking questions to each of these characters. I love the way she slips modern-day flesh on biblical truth."
"--Darlene Hepler, former director of women's ministries, Church of the Open Door, Elyria, Ohio
"
""Bad Girls of the Bible" is not only a hoot to read, it is full of serious warnings about shaky choices and serious encouragement to take God's way for our own good."
"--Gloria Gaither, author, speaker, and lyricist
""I love Liz's work! She entertains while teaching and leaves me with points to ponder long after. Her insights are fresh and exciting and will draw readers back into the Word."
"--Francine Rivers, best-selling author of Redeeming Love
""I loved the down-to-earth realism. Instead of an airbrushed, plastic feel, "Bad Girls of the Bible" jumps off the pages with fresh, relevant, and engaging applications."
"--BeckyMoltumyr, Brookside Church, Omaha, Nebraska
""In her creative, fun-loving way, Liz retells the stories of the Bible. She delivers a knockout punch of conviction as she clearly illustrates the lessons of Scripture."
"--Lorna Dueck, former co-host of 100 Huntley Street

Book Description Waterbrook Press (A Division of Random House Inc), United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Ten of the Bible s best-known femmes fatales parade across the pages of this popular and unforgettable study with situations that sound oh-so-familiar. 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 Bible study teacher and speaker Liz Curtis Higgs, and choose a better path. 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, Higgs combines a contemporary retelling of the stories of these other women in Scripture with a solid, verse-by-verse study to teach us how to avoid their tragic mistakes and joyfully embrace grace. Let these Bad Girls show you why studying the Bible has never been more fun! Includes Discussion Questions and Study Guide. Seller Inventory # AAS9780307731975
