This book tells the 'real' story of biblical women of ill-repute. Essex brings to life women like Eve, Gomer, Delilah and Jezebel--all women we love to hate. Essex uses sound biblical interpretive tools to uncover the history of these women. Then, Essex uses reflection questions to help us think about how we are like the women in the Bible. She does not preach but encourages and gives us the tools to uncover the meaning and purpose of these women in the Bible. This is a must read for all thinking people of faith and for those searching for an intelligent treatment of the Bible and women in it.
