This book and the other two Bad Girl Books come highly recommended by me. They are entertaining but above all show us that God chose flawed women to lead. He loves us where we are. I think that is an important lesson for all of us and one to be shared with new Christians. Liz Curtis Higgs has a wonderful way of storytelling that draws you in and keeps you there throughout. A+

This was a fun read - truly. Didactic in nature, and very practical. This was one of the first books on understanding women that I read. Liz keeps things light, but truthful. She's a very good bible teacher. God has given her revelation and insight that fits her personality and it's good. :)

Noteworthy excerpts:
"Major bad guy, that Sisera. As head of the Canaanite army, he'd made life miserable for the Israelites for twnty years. Not anymore. Sisera's hours were numbered, and his end would come via the worst humiliation for a man: death at the hands of a woman.
You go, Deb.
Just to show you how guys hated that, several chapter later a mortally wounded Abimelech begged his armorbearer, 'Draw your sword and kill me, so that they can't say a woman killed him'.
Oh brother. (page 51)

"In Jerusalem the roofs were flat and served as an extra room of the house, utilized for worhsip, sleeping, or drying things like fruit and flax - remember Rahab's flax-covered roof?" (page 135)

"What Jesus wants to do is heal us and set us free right now. What He does in the physical, He does in the spiritual and in the emotional as well: He makes us whole." (page 244)

Keeps your interest, teaches you, shows you your practical self and helps you to better relate to the women of scripture. They're not as different from us as we're sometimes encouraged to believe.

I'm sorry to say the book was not what I though it would be. I thought it a short re-telling of the actual bible women's stories, their struggles and eventual redemption. Instead it is a jumble of modern women's final moments (and pretty quick) enlightenment, with lots of bible quotes. I would say that for a deeply religious person this might be touching, and would be great for Womens bible studies, but for an agnostic like my self, I'm sorry to say that this book was a total waste.
