Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible

Flawed Women Loved by a Flawless God

About Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible

Good Women Behaving Badly

A spiteful boss, a defiant employee, a manipulative mother, a desperate housewife, an envious sister…honey, we know these women. We’ve lived with them, worked with them, or caught a glimpse of them in our mirrors.

Now let’s take a look at their ancient counterparts in Scripture: Sarah mistreated her maidservant, Hagar despised her mistress, Rebekah manipulated her son, Leah claimed her sister’s husband, and Rachel envied her fertile sister.

They were far from evil, but hardly perfect. Mostly good, yet slightly bad. In other words, these matriarchal mamas look a lot like us.

“A Slightly Bad Girl is simply this: a woman unwilling to fully submit to God. We love him, serve him, and worship him, yet we find it difficult to trust him completely, to accept his plan for our lives, to rest in his sovereignty.” —from Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible

Praise

“I love Liz’s work! She entertains while teaching and leaves me with points to ponder long after. Her insights are fresh and exciting and will draw readers back into the Word.”

Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible Now Includes Discussion Questions & Study Guide

“Higgs revisits the well of biblical women for this continuation of her hugely successful Bad Girls of the Bible series.… This one takes a different tack, looking at five ‘good girls’ of the Bible and finding them seriously flawed.… She emphasizes the lesson—and the humor—in each woman’s tale [and] capably blends fictional vignettes of contemporary ‘bad girls’ with in-depth exegesis of their biblical counterparts’ stories.”—Publishers Weekly
 
For more than three decades, Bible teacher and author Liz Curtis Higgs has been helping women engage with the Bible and grow in their relationship with God through her writing and speaking ministry. Laced with humor, solid research, and heartfelt self-disclosure, Higgs’ unique brand of “girlfriend theology” has helped women of all ages experience God’s grace anew.
 
In Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible (WaterBrook, 7/24/18)—now with discussion questions and a study guide—Higgs takes a look at five strong-willed women from Genesis whose lives illustrate how abundantly God loves each of his daughters, flaws and all. These women were far from evil but hardly perfect. Mostly good, yet slightly bad. In other words, they look like modern day women.
 
Sarah mistreated her maidservant, 
Hagar despised her mistress, 
Rebekah manipulated her son, 
Leah claimed her sister’s husband, and Rachel envied her fertile sister. 
 
Regardless, Higgs emphasizes that these women were chosen to bear the seed of Abraham and demonstrate God’s faithfulness from generation to generation.
 
Part of the million-selling BAD GIRLS OF THE BIBLE series, Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible will continue to encourage and challenge women of all ages to trust in God’s faithfulness and share these important scriptural lessons with their children and friends in their faith journey.
