Publisher's Summary

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. Let these bad girls show you why studying the Bible has never been more fun!

Bible Truth & lots of trashy fiction don't mix .

Did even take the time to call this a Bible study, it's trashy, nasty, and don't mix God's word with almost porn like material.

Not as good as her bible based fiction series

The author wrote a fictional story to help illustrate lessons on Biblical women. Although the stories were interesting, they didn’t relate well to the Bible lessons. In addition, she seemed to take liberty in her interpretation of the Bible stories and judgement of the characters, often sounding too preachy, or overly dramatic. I enjoyed her fiction series, and think she should stick to that genre, instead of writing bible studies that seem poorly researched and opinionated.

Bad Girls Good Bad

The women led similar lives whether in the past or in the present to survive.

Not for the pure and sensitive.

This was a nightmare to listen to in our book club, so much so, that I left my book club. I just had so much anxiety reading it. I hated that it had a fictional story to begin with in each segment (if I'm going to be in literal pain, it surely isn't going to be over some fictional story and characters), and then comparing it with the Bible story after and what we learn from it. I don't even remember what I learned from the Adam and Eve section because I was cringing the whole time like you do going up a steep roller coaster slope before going over the edge (you know it always ends bad). This book is like a book of tragedies. It highlights how "delightful" it seemed for the sinner, and then their downfall. Let me just say, this will not uplift. It's proven that one negative and a positive make a negative. Psychologically, it takes five positives to over ride a negative message. Thus, I cannot recommend this book or give it anything above one star.

Excellent Book I Could Relate To

This was an excellent book. I could relate to all the women described in some way or another. Liz has such a unique way of looking at things. Having come from a similar background as hers, I struggled with my "bad girl" past. This book helped me see that God still loves me, even though I'm less than perfect. I really enjoyed hearing Liz narrate the book herself. That added a lot to my enjoyment. I highly recommend this book to everyone, men and women alike, and can't wait to read the next "Bad Girls" book.

Loved this book!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, definitely, this book was so entertaining, and I learned heaps too!

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the whole thing, but especially her take on Rahab's story

Have you listened to any of Liz Curtis Higgs’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Not yet, but I just purchased her study of Ruth and I can't wait to listen to it!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, although I spread it over a couple of days while driving. It was so good!

Imperfect Biblical Women

What I loved most about this book was how the author (Liz) read a passage of the Bible and gave it a modern day example. Thank you for this book xo
