Bad Girls of the Bible
I really enjoyed this book, Not only has Liz Curtis Higgs done her research, but she's a great storyteller, as well. By first placing each featured woman's story in the appropriate historical setting, and then creating a similar story in current times, Curtis Higgs does as any good pastor would, giving the reader a sense of how lessons from the Bible can be helpful today. It helps when an author can take something that happened in the past and relate it to something present. The way the stories are written, do make the reader stop and think about current issues and how today's problems are no different from thousands of years ago. There is redemption for all of us if we stop and get on the right path.
