Ten of the Bible's best-known femmes fatales parade across the pages of Bad Girls of the Bible with situations that sound oh-so-familiar. Eve had food issues. Potiphar’s wife and Delilah had man trouble. Lot’s wife and Michal couldn’t let go of the past, Sapphira couldn’t let go of money, and Jezebel couldn’t let go of anything. Yet the woman at the well had her thirst quenched at last, while Rahab and the sinful woman left their sordid histories behind.
"just what I needed"
Prepare for a life-changing encounter with Jesus, seeing him afresh through the eyes of three women who worship and adore him. Mary of Bethany prepares the way for the lord's burial when she anoints his feet and fills the air with her perfume. His mother, Mary of Nazareth, stands by her son from his first breath to his last, her loyalty unwavering. Mary Magdalene, delivered of seven demons, bravely supports her teacher through his darkest hours, then proclaims the glorious news of his resurrection.
"Insightful telling of Easter"
A mother who cannot face her future.... A daughter who cannot escape her past. Lady Elisabeth Kerr is a keeper of secrets. A Highlander by birth and a Lowlander by marriage, she honors the auld ways, even as doubts and fears stir deep within her.
Her husband, Lord Donald, has secrets of his own, well hidden from the household, yet whispered among the town gossips.
"Liz does it again!"
With Really Bad Girls of the Bible, Liz reveals the power of God's sovereignty in the lives of shady ladies we know by reputation but have rarely studied in depth: Bathsheba, the bathing beauty. Jael, the tent-peg-toting warrior princess. Herodias, the horrible beheader.
"Love this author and book"
You know Ruth's story. Now meet her in person. And prepare to be changed. Walk with Ruth as she travels from Moab to Bethlehem, certain of her calling yet uncertain of her future. Hold Naomi's hand and watch love put the pieces of her broken life back together. And hang out with Boaz, their kinsman-redeemer, who blesses both women and honors God big time.
Stepping from a battered coach on a rainy April eve, newly widowed Elisabeth Kerr must begin again, without husband or title, property or fortune. She is unafraid of work and gifted with a needle, but how will she stitch together the tattered remnants of her life? And who will mend her heart, torn asunder by betrayal and deception? Elisabeth has not come to Selkirk alone. Her mother-in-law, Marjory Kerr, is a woman undone, having buried her husband, her sons, and any promise of grandchildren....
"Exceptional AND Narrated by the Author!"
When it comes to queens in the Bible, we know the good one, Queen Esther, and the bad one, Queen Jezebel. But what about the wise one, the queen of Sheba? This wealthy royal from antiquity who longed to observe for herself the wisdom of Solomon offers a storehouse of treasures for her modern sisters, showing us how to seek truth, ask the right questions, keep an open mind, give generously, and honor God above all.
"New insights share about Queen of Sheba"
Higgs revisits the well of biblical women for this continuation of her hugely successful Bad Girls of the Bible series. Whereas Bad Girls of the Bible and Really Bad Girls of the Bible tackled the Jezebels and Salomes, often demonstrating that these women were not as nefarious as later traditions would suggest, this one takes a different tack, looking at five good girls of the Bible and finding them seriously flawed.
Dr. Emilie Getz and Jonas Fielding are as different as two people - of the same age, with the same faith, living in the same small Pennsylvania town - could possibly be. She's a first-class neatnik; he's a world-class slob. She's into saving historical relics; he's into saving souls. But perhaps opposites do attract. For when this historian and this land developer meet, sparks fly. And despite the rather inauspicious beginning to their relationship, neither one will escape unchanged - or unsmitten!
