SNEAK PEEK: SLIGHTLY BAD GIRLS OF THE BIBLE by Liz Curtis Higgs
Good Women Behaving Badly.
Read the first chapter of Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible.
A spiteful boss, a defiant employee, a manipulative mother, a desperate housewife, an envious sister honey, we know these women. Weve lived with them, worked with them, or caught a glimpse of them in our mirrors.
Now lets take a look at their ancient counterparts in Scripture: Sarah mistreated her maidservant, Hagar despised her mistress, Rebekah manipulated her son, Leah claimed her sisters 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.
