Children's LiteratureThe author uses hip teen language to draw relevant lessons from women of the Bible. Referring to Eve, Bathsheba, Esther, and others as "divine divas," she retells the Bible story with explanations in side clips such as "rationalizing: finding ways to make something that's wrong look right" and "punishment: God's judgment of sin under the Old Testament law." At the end of each story are "Didjaknow?" questions and related stories of people today such as Condoleezza Rice, Laura Bush, and others less well known. At the end the reader is encouraged to sign a pledge to seek God's plan for her life and send her name to the author through the Baker Publishing Group to receive a B.A.B.E. ID. Spiritual gifts and Christian character traits with Biblical references are listed. A Leader's Guide gives directions for having "chat sessions." The author is beauty editor for "Brio" magazine and founder of "The B.A.B.E. Seminar" series for teen girls. 2005, Fleming H. Revell/Baker Publishing Group, Ages 12 to 18.
