Still hot off the presses, Liz Curtis Higgs’ “The Girl’s Still Got It: Take a Walk with Ruth and the God Who Rocked Her World,” is the newest book from the author of several hilariously insightful studies on the ‘bad girls of the Bible.’ This particular work takes readers back in time for an eyewitness view of the events happening in the time of Ruth and allows us to delve into the characters of Orpah, Ruth, Naomi, Boaz alongside the townspeople of Bethlehem and the potential kinsmen redeemer not mentioned by name. As with Higgs’ other works, “The Girl’s Still Got It” is overflowing with historical tidbits, Jewish culture and customs, Hebrew word study, personal experience, and lots of laughter. This book would be absolutely perfect for a group meeting (not just one for women either!) with the included discussion questions and makes a great Bible Study tool on the book of Ruth as it also has a fabulous study guide included. I read the entire book through in one evening so it’s quite the past-paced, ‘novel’ type read. I think the part I enjoyed the most, and, when I read it through again, will complete was the introspective study guide questions which tie Ruth to the New Testament (several of which would make great sermons or lessons with a bit of research!). A definite recommend read for any and everyone! For just a sample of the many treasures inside, here are a couple of my favorite lines: “When God is on the move, He invariably leaves footprints” (pg 100) and “Maybe that’s the simplest definition of faith: sitting tight. Waiting without fretting. Trusting without second-guessing. Believing without demanding proof” (pg 140). Great stuff!
