Discover the Truth About
God's Sovereignty
from the Bible's Really Bad Girls.

Eight of the Bible's most notorious females strut across the pages of Really Bad Girls of the Bible with troubles that still hit home in the twenty-first century.

The Medium of En Dor crossed over to the dark side. Jael stood up to a ruthless enemy. The Adulteress was caught between a rock and a hard place. Athaliah made a bid for power that ended badly. Bathsheba captured the wandering eye of a king. Herodias made a cruel request of her husband. Tamar exchanged her widow's weeds for a harlot's garb. And the Bleeding Woman had a serious health issue only a great physician could handle.

"Higgs does such a remarkable job telling their stories that many of the Good Book's 'bad girls' become downright sympathetic.... Higgs is a refreshingly astute biblical commentator...(and) ably points readers to 'good girl' tips they can apply from the Bible's cautionary tales."
--Publishers Weekly

Really Bad Girls of the Bible shines a spotlight on God's sovereignty, demonstrating one life-changing truth: God rules the lives of those He loves with mercy, compassion, and hope.

I LOVED this book. Liz has an amazing way of bringing the story to life and helping you to really understand the character in a new way. Her down to earth conversational approach makes it a joy to read. I could hardly put it down. Each chapter covers a new character, so it's easy to enjoy small portions at a time without feeling like your'e left hanging.

(This would be great for a small group study as well, since she provides thought provoking questions at the end of each chapter.)
