About the Book

The Girls Are Back in Town

Eight of the Bible’s most notorious females strut across the pages of Really Bad Girls of the Bible with troubles that still hit home in the twenty-first century.

The Medium of En Dor crossed over to the dark side. Jael stood up to a ruthless enemy. The Adulteress was caught between a rock and a hard place. Athaliah made a bid for power that ended badly. Bathsheba captured the wandering eye of a king. Herodias made a cruel request of her husband. Tamar exchanged her widow’s weeds for a harlot’s garb. And the Bleeding Woman had a serious health issue only a great physician could handle.

Through a unique combination of contemporary fiction, gentle humor, and biblical exposition, Liz Curtis Higgs brings their stories to life. Whether they were Bad and Proud of It, Bad for a Good Reason, found themselves under a Bad Moon Rising, or were Bad but Not Condemned, these eight Really Bad Girls demonstrate one life-changing truth: God rules the lives of those He loves with grace, compassion, and hope.

“Higgs does such a remarkable job telling their stories that many of the Good Book’s ‘bad girls’ become downright sympathetic…. Higgs is a refreshingly astute biblical commentator…(and) ably points readers to ‘good girl’ tips they can apply from the Bible’s cautionary tales.” — Publishers Weekly
