Reviews - What do customers think about Really Bad Girls of the Bible?
Great Idea, Well-Executed Aug 3, 2009
In case you are not familiar with Liz Higgs, she is a large, lusty, middle aged female who has a gift for communicating. One of her claims to fame is that she worked at the same radio station with Howard Stern somewhere in the midwest at one time, which appears to be true. Her story is one of the typical lost and found tales one hears so often among evangelical entertainers. She portrays herself as having been in a pit of sex, drugs, and rock and roll who was rescued by Jesus. Now married to a scholar in ancient languages, she is taking up the Christian flag and has turned to religious broadcasting, writing, speaking, and "encouraging." She has recorded several speeches in front of a live audiences of women on bad girls in the Bible, this DVD being one of them. It's very professionally done, there is an elaborate set, and it lasts an hour. I have become jaded hearing these before and after stories told in the manner that St. Paul made famous, but hers has a ring of authenticity to it.
What I like most about her is that she has not unsexed herself in the name of the Christ, but has remained a woman with a supermarket mentality looking with fresh eyes at the stories in the Bible. She avoids a lot of the old religious cliches. She has not lost her gusto after turning to Christianity. She is the first speaker I have heard go into the sex appeal of King David. She is the first speaker I have heard describe the Levirate marriage law as "stud service." Good job. Most speakers I hear leave their sex interest at the door, or drain the blood out of the people of the Bible until their bodies are cold, dead and white. Not Liz.
This Enquirer approach to scripture combined with some actual scholarship and a desire to be faithful to the text cause people to sit up and listen. She mixes the trash, the laugh lines, the personal revelations, and the serious points so well that one comes out the other end entertained without a guilty conscience. Rahab, Bathsheba, the medium at Endor, Deborah and Jael, the woman with the issue of blood, the woman taken in adultery do come alive here. I played this entire video for a co-ed Bible class and it seemed to be well-received. Some of the most seasoned and pious Bible students were laughing during the video and applauding at the end, so Liz's arrows seem to have found their mark.
She loses one star. There is some truth in this review: [...]
Also, she gets a little lost during the second half of the presentation and doesn't quite know what to do with Bathsheba and the woman with the issue of blood, but who cares? Her presentation is so entertaining that, in the end, it doesn't matter whether the woman with the issue of blood "really" a bad girl, or whether whether Bathsheba could have refused when David, "not thinking with his kingly head," summoned her to the palace to spend the night. This video contains the stuff of life and that is in short supply when it comes to religious video.
