A spiteful boss, a defiant employee, a manipulative mother, a desperate housewife, a jealous sister — we know these women. We’ve lived with them, worked with them, or glimpsed them in our mirrors. For all of us who’ve stubbed our toes along the rocky path of righteousness, here’s proof that our God is faithful.
This final addition to the Bad Girls of the Bible series has been expanded for 2018 to include Discussion Questions and a Study Guide, wrapped in a colorful new cover! Look for the updated edition now in stores and online.
Find Out the Truth About God’s Faithfulness from the Bible’s Slightly Bad Girls.
These women were far from evil, but hardly perfect. Mostly good, yet slightly bad. In other words, they look a lot like us.
Sarah mistreated her maidservant. Hagar despised her mistress. Rebekah manipulated her son. Leah claimed her sister’s husband. And Rachel envied her fertile sister. Even so, they were chosen to bear the seed of Abraham and demonstrate God’s faithfulness from generation to generation.
“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
Prepare for a memorable encounter with these matriarchal mamas — and the flawless God who guides our steps just as faithfully as he did theirs.
Imagine if our Slightly Bad Girls lived in 2018…
