Learn some lessons in good living from the Bible’s bad news belles. Women everywhere marvel at the “good girls” in Scripture such as Sarah, Mary, and Ruth. But on most days, when they look in the mirror they see the selfishness of Sapphira or the deception of Delilah. They catch a glimpse of Jezebel’s take-charge pride or Salome’s misguided attempt to please her mother. What’s a good girl to do?

In Bad Girls of the Bible, author Liz Curtis Higgs offers a unique and clear-sighted approach to understanding those “other women” in Scripture, combining a contemporary retelling of their stories with a solid, verse-by-verse study of the lessons we can learn from them. Whether they were “bad to the bone,” “bad for a season,” or just “bad for a moment,” these infamous sisters show readers how not to handle life’s challenges. With her trademark humor and encouragement, Liz Curtis Higgs helps us avoid their tragic mistakes and joyfully embrace grace.
