About Bad Girls of the Bible by Liz Curtis Higgs 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! READ a sample.
Enjoy this fun take on the Bad Girls of the Bible from author Liz Curtis Higgs!
“Badness—in other words, sin—doesn’t have to be that dramatic. It can be something on the sidelines: an unkind word, a whisper of gossip, a neglected request, an unrepentant attitude, an intentionally forgotten event.
It all boils down to a heart that’s hardened against God—however temporary the condition, however isolated the tough spot…
Here’s the good news: He loves us anyway.”
Excerpted from Bad Girls of the Bible by Liz Curtis Higgs
Daily Reflection: How do you know God loves you in the midst of your "badness?"
Popular Bible study teacher, speaker and New York Times bestselling author Liz Curtis Higgs is featured this month on the cover of Christian Retailing Magazine. The article highlights how instrumental Christian bookstores have been in both Higgs’ personal spiritual growth and in her professional life. In the 30 years since Higgs became a follower of Christ, she has written 30 books with more than 4.5 million in print. She credits the ministry of Christian retailers in helping readers discover her work, including her signature title Bad Girls of the Bible, which re-releases this month.
“They became my go-to source. They filled my arms with books and I was so grateful,” Higgs says in regards to Christian bookstores after she came to know Christ in 1982. To show her appreciation Liz is doing a “Thank You Tour” in July where readers can join her for a LIVE BIBLE STUDY on Bad Girls of the Bible. She will be teaching about the Bible’s top 10 shady ladies in Oklahoma City (July 23), Nashville (July 24) and Grand Rapids (July 27).

Women everywhere marvel at those “good girls” in Scripture–Sarah, Mary, Esther–but on most days, that’s not who they see when they look in the mirror.
Most women (if they’re honest) see the selfishness of Sapphira or the deception of Delilah. They catch of glimpse of Jezebel’s take-charge pride or Eve’s disastrous disobedience. Like Bathsheba, Herodias, and the rest, today’s modern woman is surrounded by temptations, exhausted by the demands of daily living, and burdened by her own desires.
