Bad Girls of the Bible
by:  Liz Curtis-Higgs
Reviewed by:  Christine Swartzendruber

Daytime television has nothing on the drama we find as we delve into the pages of the Bad Girls of the Bible. Liz Curtis Higgs takes us on a journey through dishonesty, fornication, adultery and vengeance like only a soap opera could rival. These are the original cliff-hangers.

Just as God can make good things happen from bad deeds, good lessons can be learned from these bad girls. Higgs uses modern day situations, to introduce us to ten well known female bible characters, their sins, and the consequences they faced.

Each chapter is dedicated to one modern day woman and her biblical counterpart.  Their stories are paralleled to illustrate how things we face today aren’t that much different from the temptations and circumstances of long ago. Through the stories of Eve, Jezebel, Delilah, Potiphar’s wife, and the woman at the well we can see how bad girls and good girls both need a Savior.

Higgs does a great job of teaching bible history while giving timeless life lessons. I not only enjoyed every minute of the suspense but I also learned a lot from this book.
