Girl Friends, You've Got to Read This Book

Prostitutes, adulteresses, vengeful murderers and a few expert seductresses are all a part of Liz Curtis Higgs' non-fiction book, Bad Girls of the Bible. What can we learn from these women? Did their wicked deeds and smoldering desires deserve empathy? After all how was a girl to survive in Biblical times? These are the pressing questions Mrs. Higgs asks.

Women of ill repute have covered many a page of the Bible, some never changed their evil ways but some most decidedly did. Liz Curtis Higgs, author of such books as Help, I’m Laughing and I Can’t Get Up and One Size Fits All and Other Fables, brings these timeless chronicles of our Biblical bad girls to life. More to the point, she makes their struggles, their desires and their accomplishments a part of our own stories. Mrs. Curtis’ own past is revealed in the opening chapter.

Do me a favor and read the rest of this review here. You'll love it. Thanks.

I have to honestly say that deep down, I'm a baaaaaad girl. hee hee hee.

Have you ever heard the song, Good Little Girls... by Blue County? Well, they must of written that song with me in mind. LOL! My Knight doesn't listen to country music, but I do. When I first heard that song, I knew what he would think. So I asked him to listen to it. LOL! He just smiled and winked at me... it was all about me.

I've been wanting to read Bad Girls of the Bible for quite some time. But I have a hard time focusing. I should look see if they have it on tape. That way I can hear it. I know it won't be the same as reading it. :o(

This book on CD would probably be very entertaining, especially if Liz was reading it. But I tell ya, the book is really easy to read. Her chapters are short and oh, sooooo bad!
