Item description for Slightly Bad Girls Of The Bible Large Print by Liz Curtis Higgs...
Overview Sarah, Hagar, Rebekah, Leah, and Rachel are five women from Genesis who often stubbed their toes on the rocky path of righteousness--mostly good, yet slightly bad. In this volume, Higgs combines contemporary fiction and verse-by-verse commentary in her novel approach to Bible study, offering eye-opening lessons for women who long to know if God loves them, flaws and all.
Publishers Description Good Women Behaving Badly A spiteful boss, a defiant employee, a manipulative mother, a desperate housewife, an envious sister...honey, we "know "these women. We've lived with them, worked with them, or caught a glimpse of them in our mirrors. Now let's take a look at their ancient counterparts in Scripture: Sarah mistreated her maidservant, Hagar despised her mistress, Rebekah manipulated her son, Leah claimed her sister's husband, and Rachel envied her fertile sister. They were far from evil, but hardly perfect. Mostly good, yet slightly bad. In other words, these matriarchal mamas look a lot like us. ""A Slightly Bad Girl is simply this: a woman unwilling to fully submit to God. We love him, serve him, and worship him, yet we find it difficult to trust him completely, to accept his plan for our lives, to rest in his sovereignty."" --from "Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible"

Reviews - What do customers think about Slightly Bad Girls Of The Bible Large Print?
What an entertaing book... Feb 20, 2009
I listened to the audio version of this book and I love the deliberate and entertaining reflections on these woman of the bible...I was a little turned off by what I thought was a pretentious title/series, but it has helped reinforce my bible studies and has offered me some new ways to think about these women. Although not comprehensive it offers a unique approach to classic bible stories. I just wish she would come out with audio on all her books.
Slightly Bad very good Jan 19, 2009
A delightful read... I wish it had covered more than five characters, but the presentation was well organized. I used it as a reference for a group Bible study, and it provided me with fresh new insights on Sara and Hagar.
Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible Jan 12, 2009
Great Bible study, I lead it with a women's group in Texas last year and am doing it in Florida this year. One of our ladies is going to use it a a retreat for her women's jail ministry . Great study. SO is Really bad Girls and Bad Girls of the Bible
so-so Dec 24, 2008
not so thrilled and felt the same emptiness for its sister book, bad girls of the bible. i felt they relished on nothing.
Great addition to Liz's Bad Girls series! Aug 8, 2008
Liz Curtis Higgs' Bad Girls of the Bible series is second to none, and in my opinion the audio is even better than the book, because Liz is the reader. She's an accomplished speaker and the injections of humor are so well done. I also enjoyed the audio of "Bad Girls of the Bible" although it was abridged, and I hope Liz will eventually do an audiobook of "Really Bad Girls of the Bible." Liz brings these women to life and shows that although they and we are separated by many centuries, we're quite a bit alike. There's much we modern-day women can learn from those ancient girls and their trials and tribulations, and in the process, we can strengthen our own relationship with God.
