Praise for "The Girl's Still Got It"
"This is by far the most interesting, encouraging, and applicable book on Ruth I've ever read. Liz is brilliantly profound as she makes the Bible come alive in a fresh, enlightening way. I kept finding myself saying, 'I didn't know that!' Plus, Liz's trademark wit makes this book so much fun to read. I give this book my highest recommendation."
"--Lysa TerKeurst, New York Times best-selling author of Made to Crave and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries
""Liz Curtis Higgs is one of the most amazing teachers of God's Word that I have ever experienced. Her in-depth knowledge of the Scriptures, gifting as a communicator, and personal relationship with the Lord make her unmatched in the ability to take biblical truth and make it applicable to anybody."
"--Priscilla Shirer, New York Times best-selling author of The Resolution for Women"
"Liz has a profound gift. She can pull back the curtain of history, and suddenly we are weeping with Naomi, kneeling beside Ruth, and celebrating a God who redeems our stories in outrageously beautiful ways. You will love this book!"
"--Sheila Walsh, author of God Loves Broken People (and those who pretend they're not)
"
"Liz is authentic, hilarious, and theologically substantive. Every time I have the privilege of hearing her teach or reading something she's written, I come away with a bigger, clearer picture of Jesus. Her new book about an Old Testament girl named Ruth--which is ultimately about God's redemptive affection for all of us--is a must read!"
"--Lisa Harper, author of Stumbling into Grace
""Liz's genius, sensitivity, and humor are reflected on every page. I've taught the book of Ruth many times, but, oh, did Liz introduce me to insightful, ancient cues that deepened what I thought I knew. You're going to fall in love with "The Girl's Still Got It"--and with Liz!"
"--Jan Silvious, author of Same Life, New Story

Format: Paperback
I have loved reading the fiction of Liz Curtis Higgs ever since finding one of her books, Thorn in My Heart, on a bargain bookshelf many years ago. It captivated me like no other book has, with its retelling of the Jacob-Leah-Rachel love triangle in the Bible, set in 18th century Scotland. Aye, but I've nivver been able to look at the story the same way, ye ken.

I've loved her fiction, but I must confess that I've never done one of her Bible studies. It might be easy to assume that, as a pastor's wife, I've heard everything there is to hear about the story of Ruth in the Bible. But in this Bible study book, I learned so much!

The "It" in The Girl's Still Got It refers to value, significance, or worth - which God reaffirmed in Ruth's life. No matter where you've come from or what you've done, God still loves you, and He has a plan for your life.

Liz gives us a narrated, thought-provoking tour of the entire saga, making the reader feel as if she is right there in the story, walking beside (or maybe behind) Ruth and Naomi. In Liz's conversational yet hilarious style, incredible truths are revealed as you see the amazing plan of a Sovereign God unfold, and you realize that there's a little bit of Ruth in all of us.

I loved the book, not just because I love the story of Ruth but also because one of the highlights of my life was getting to meet Liz myself with two dozen other Nashville-area ladies to participate in this same Bible study - live and in person! (The Girl's Still Got It: Take a Walk with Ruth and the God Who Rocked Her World was videotaped and is also available on July 10! Can't wait to see how it turned out!) But I'm not the only one who loved it.

I have a confession to make. I'm not a big fan of the Bad Girls of the Bible books by Liz Curtis Higgs. I hate to admit that. The books are so popular and everyone praises them, but I had to force myself to finish the 1st book and I never attempted any of the sequels. So when my former Bible Study group were choosing a new study, I tried talking everyone out of a study my Liz Curtis Higgs. They won. I quickly realized that I won too. I never laughed so hard, nor learned so much during a study, before or after. So when I saw this book was available to review, I requested a review copy from the publisher right away. And I loved it!

The back of the book says that after reading The Girls Still Got It, you will be able to say, "I totally geth the book of Ruth." Well, I just finished reading it, and I totally get the book of Ruth! Liz (she puts so much of herself into this book that you feel like you know her, so I'll call her Liz, thankyouverymuch) does encourage relating Ruth and Naomi to our personal lives, make no mistake that this is a study of the book of Ruth. Liz walks us through Ruth, literally line by line. We are given plenty of background, so it's easy to imagine this ancient world, the clothing, hairstyles, customs, etc.

I have another book that studies Ruth , and have done other studies on Ruth, and the difference in the books are huge. I found The Girls Still Got It to be superior because of the depth it goes into. Liz doesn'tskip around, taking the book line by line, you're getting the details and the background to see and understand the whole picture. Liz doesn't pick out the most important lines, each line holds importance. I missed the significance of verse 2:4 before. Not this time.

Even the title is encouraging, isn't it?

What a privilege to read this book early and share my thoughts. I've long admired Ruth; and, so has Liz Curtis Higgs. What girl, for we're all girls inside, hasn't longed for a redeemer, a benefactor to save the day? Crazy about us? All the better. We all need someone to save us from ourselves, our circumstances, our habits, and our future.

The Girl's Still Got It is the nonfiction retelling of one of the most beautiful stories of love and redemption ever. I mean ever.

Taken directly from the Book of Ruth, Mrs. Higgs uses fourteen versions of The Word, to create a word picture of the amazing story of Naomi, Ruth the Moabitess, and Boaz. The drama of the situation is beautifully and skillfully related as we climb into Mrs. Higgs' time machine and travel back to the time of the Judges. Careful research and the art of the storyteller combine to make this a book that I will read again.

Facing life as a widow, Ruth gave up everything to go with Naomi, her mother-in-law, to Bethlehem. She showed herself true to Naomi and to the God of Israel with hard work and absolute devotion to Naomi. Naomi and Ruth develop through the pages of the Book of Ruth as God changes their hearts and circumstances.
A longing for a kinsman redeemer grew within me as I read of Boaz, Ruth's redeemer. Tenderness, mercy, kindness, self-confident, protective, all the things we long for are all wrapped up in Boaz and in our ultimate Kinsman Redeemer, Jesus.

This book gets 5 stars from this girl.
Go Liz!
