Bad Girls of the Bible, And What We Can Learn from Them by Liz Curtis Higgs ~ A Review

In Bad Girls of the Bible, Liz offers a clear-sighted, life-changing approach to understanding those "other women" in Scripture—Delilah, Jezebel, Rahab, Lot's wife, and six more. Liz combines a contemporary fictional retelling of their stories with a solid, verse-by-verse study of their lives and the lessons we can learn from them.

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

This book arrived about 2 weeks ago, and i really did think i could read it.  Having been a bad girl who is now saved by grace, and having learned many things the hard way, i thought that i could learn a few lessons from those who have gone before me.  Well, i tried to read it, but honestly, this book is not  for me.

Just recently i shared with a friend why my family won't be attending the really big Easter production in our city...i am very careful about the graphic images that we take in.  And the written images in this book are ones that i simply don't need.  This may be a useful tool for others, but not for me.  While the Bible certainly does mention scandalous behaviors and women, most of the Bible isn't written in an alluringly graphic way.

So, this is my honest non review, of a book that was sent to me by the publisher.  There are many other much more thorough reviews of this book, if you are interested, you can read some of them here.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review as a part of their Blogging for Books program.
