Praise for the Bad Girls of the Bible series
“Liz Curtis Higgs’s unique use of fiction combined with Scripture and modern application helped me see myself, my past, and my future in a whole new light. A stunning, awesome book.”
—ROBIN LEE HATCHER author of Whispers from Yesterday
“In her creative, fun-loving way, Liz retells the stories of the Bible. She delivers a knock-out punch of conviction as she clearly illustrates the lessons of Scripture.”
—LORNA DUECK former co-host of 100 Huntley Street
“The opening was a page-turner. I know that women are going to read this and look at these women of the Bible with fresh eyes.”
—DEE BRESTIN author of The Friendships of Women
“This book is a ‘good read’ directed straight at the ‘bad girl’ in all of us.”
—ELISAMORGAN president emerita, MOPS International
“With a skillful pen and engaging candor Liz paints pictures of modern situations, then uniquely parallels them with the Bible’s ‘bad girls.’ She doesn’t condemn, but rather encourages and equips her readers to become godly women, regardless of the past.”
—MARY HUNT author of Mary Hunt’s Debt-Proof Living
“Bad Girls is more than an entertaining romp through fascinating characters. It is a bona fide Bible study in which women (and men!) will see themselves revealed and restored through the matchless and amazing grace of God.”
—ANGELA ELWELL HUNT author of The Immortal
“Liz had me from the first paragraph. I was continually amazed how skillfully she dressed the biblical characters in contemporary garments. She made the old stories live again. An exciting work.”
—KALI SCHNIEDERS author of Truffles from Heaven
“Liz has brought a blended format of fiction, biblical commentary, and thought-provoking questions to each of these characters. I love the way Liz slips ‘modern-day flesh’ on biblical truth.”
—DARLENE HEPLER Church of the Open Door, Elyria, Ohio
“With great insight into the challenges faced by ten women who have gone before us, Liz analyzes the driving forces in women’s lives that can cause them to make bad decisions. Invite a group of friends to join you in discussing the issues presented in this book—your lives may be changed forever!”
—VICKY WAUTERLEK The Village Church of Barrington, Illinois
“I loved the down-to-earth realism. Instead of having an airbrushed, plastic feel, Bad Girls of the Bible jumps off the pages with fresh, relevant, and engaging applications.”
—BECKY MOLTUMYR director of women’s ministries, Brookside Church, Omaha, Nebraska

What I like about this author as her "real" way of speaking. She writes like she's with me, my friend, at my kitchen table. But, her words are still scholarly. She cites her references and gives you that pertinent, "person, place, and time" of every situation. She lets you know what was going on in the world at that time and culture.
I'm going to read every one of her books. This book really affirmed my love of God and Jesus. It also showed me how much God loves me and how women are important to God and Jesus.
This book was a real bargain for me as the cost was a total of $0.01 plus $3.99 for shipping and handling. It arrived in excellent condition in a very timely manner prior to a Bible class I was participating in out of state and after Christmas. I was very pleased. Thank you Amazon!
I am strongly recommending this book to help the reader contrast and compare today's society with Biblical times. Not an iota of improvement. Sadly more depravity than ever. See and read for yourself.
