Item description for Slightly Bad Girls by Liz Curtis Higgs...
Overview This DVD version of Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible can be used for either personal or group study. As you read about several women in the Bible who were far from evil yet slightly bad, you'll discover that these ancient women were a lot like us. Liz's novel approach to Bible study combines contemporary fiction with a verse-by-verse commentary. Watch the DVD at home or in church with a few of your "slightly bad girlfriends" and discover that God loves you, flaws and all.
From Publishers Weekly Higgs revisits the well of biblical women for this continuation of her hugely successful Bad Girls of the Bible series. Whereas Bad Girls of the Bible and Really Bad Girls of the Bible tackled the Jezebels and Salomes, often demonstrating that these women were not as nefarious as later traditions would suggest, this one takes a different tack, looking at five good girls of the Bible and finding them seriously flawed. Focusing on Genesis, Higgs looks at Sarah (a control freak), Hagar (who was filled with bitterness), Rebekah (a conniving schemer who played favorites with her sons), Leah (another schemer) and Rachel (who was consumed by jealousy). One theme that emerges clearly is how fertility, or the lack of it, dominated these womens lives in a patriarchal culture. As always, Higgss tone is chatty and girlfriendish, addressing the reader in the second person as she emphasizes the lessonand the humorin each womans tale. And as always, this one capably blends fictional vignettes of contemporary bad girls with in-depth exegesis of their biblical counterparts stories. Higgs also reveals her own foibles as she weaves personal anecdotes into each chapter, underscoring the books overall theme: even faithful women can sometimes be hurtful and selfish.
