Praise for The Girl’s Still Got It
“This is by far the most interesting, encouraging, and applicable book on Ruth I’ve ever read. Liz is brilliantly profound as she makes the Bible come alive in a fresh, enlightening way. I kept finding myself saying, ‘I didn’t know that!’ Plus, Liz’s trademark wit makes this book so much fun to read. I give this book my highest recommendation.” —Lysa TerKeurst, New York Times best-selling author of Made to Crave and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries
“Liz Curtis Higgs is one of the most amazing teachers of God’s Word that I have ever experienced. Her in-depth knowledge of the Scriptures, gifting as a communicator, and personal relationship with the Lord make her unmatched in the ability to take biblical truth and make it applicable to anybody.” —Priscilla Shirer, New York Times best-selling author of The Resolution for Women
“Liz has a profound gift. She can pull back the curtain of history, and suddenly we are weeping with Naomi, kneeling beside Ruth, and celebrating a God who redeems our stories in outrageously beautiful ways. You will love this book!” —Sheila Walsh, author of God Loves Broken People (and those who pretend they’re not)
“Liz is authentic, hilarious, and theologically substantive. Every time I have the privilege of hearing her teach or reading something she’s written, I come away with a bigger, clearer picture of Jesus. Her new book about an Old Testament girl named Ruth—which is ultimately about God’s redemptive affection for all of us—is a must read!” —Lisa Harper, author of Stumbling into Grace
“Liz’s genius, sensitivity, and humor are reflected on every page. I’ve taught the book of Ruth many times, but, oh, did Liz introduce me to insightful, ancient cues that deepened what I thought I knew. You’re going to fall in love with The Girl’s Still Got It—and with Liz!” —Jan Silvious, author of Same Life, New Story
“Liz Curtis Higgs has done it again! With her thorough research, spontaneous wit, and extraordinary attention to every detail of Ruth’s life, Liz will have you laughing and crying at the same time while being challenged with poignant choices that apply to your own life. This book sings of hope, redemption, and lasting joy. I highly recommend it for personal and small-group study.” —Carol Kent, author of Between a Rock and a Grace Place
“I love Liz. I love Ruth. Put them under the same roof, and you have my full attention. Liz is the consummate storyteller, and Ruth is a woman with a story worth knowing. It worked for me. Big time!” —Patsy Clairmont, author of Stained Glass Hearts
“Liz has certainly still got it! You’ll laugh, learn, and love Liz’s contemporary parallels to Ruth and Naomi. She brings them alive, vividly helping us identify with their hopes and hurts. Like us, they faced enormous storms, but also—and Liz makes this so clear—they learned to trust the Lord of the Storm. Liz’s astounding research will teach you valuable history—yet all the while you’ll feel like you are curled up with a novel.” —Dee Brestin, author of The Friendships of Women and Falling in Love with Jesus
“Liz Curtis Higgs has taken this remarkable story and made it come alive! With delightful humor and well-researched insight, Liz presents Ruth’s story as it truly is—the story of you and me. For we, too, have been chosen and deeply loved by a Kinsman-Redeemer who went to such extravagant lengths that he left heaven and interrupted eternity just to make us his own.” —Joanna Weaver, author of Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World
“The first time I heard Liz Curtis Higgs speak, I fell in love with her wisdom, her grace, and especially her infectious laughter. It has been the very same for me with this book. She had me at the first sentence, bent over the pages, underlining like a crazy woman, writing notes in the margins, and laughing out loud along with her. Liz writes with the mind of a scholar, the heart of a novelist, and a beautiful wit. I cannot wait to huddle my girlfriends around our kitchen table and study The Girl’s Still Got It.” —Angela Thomas, author of Do You Think I’m Beautiful?

“The last biblical famine had occurred during Joseph’s time, and God had put that one in motion too: “He called down famine on the land and destroyed all their supplies of food.”
That sovereignty thing in action? Right. God really is in charge, and he really does know what he’s doing. The famine in Egypt made a way forward for Joseph “till the word of the Lord proved him true.”17 And that same famine, terrible as it was, brought Joseph’s brothers to his door for a God-ordained reunion.
Whenever heartache, loss, disappointment, stress, or any of the other stuff we hate comes our way, it helps to remember that hard times are purposeful, meant to refine and redirect us. They’re not arbitrary or random, and they’re definitely not cruel. If I’m going to suffer, at least let it be for [ … ]
“Resist the urge to say you’re too old, too young, too busy, too scared, too worn out, too washed up, too anything to be useful to God. Truth is, you’ve always been part of his love-the-world plan. Need proof? From the day he formed you in your mother’s womb, God has watched over your every step, making sure you got where you needed to go. When you stumbled, it was God who steadied you. When you fell, it was God who rescued you. When you lost your way, it was God who carried you home. Why? Because he knows you fully, loves you completely, and holds you close to his heart. God will never give up on you…You claim a special place in his Big Picture.”

Liz Curtis Higgs, author of The Girl’s Still Got It, recently appeared on LIFE Today with James Robison to discuss how God uses the lives of Ruth and Boaz in the Book of Ruth to demonstrate his love and redemption for us today. Click here to watch the full interview.
Why study the girls (and guys) of the Bible? Because they help us understand God’s character. Through the fickleness of his people, he reveals his unchanging nature. Through their neediness, he demonstrates his compassion. Through their rash behavior, he exhibits his patience. Through their sinful choices, he shows us what mercy looks like. Through their bitter complaints, he proves his capacity to love the unlovable. Through their disloyalty, his faithfulness shines.
