It's Good to Be Queen: Becoming as Bold, Gracious, and Wise as the Queen of Sheba by [Higgs, Liz Curtis]I really enjoy Liz Curtis Higgs books. In this one she brings in focus the Queen of Sheba, including her wisdom. This was, through the queen's eyes we can see why we need to follow God and demonstrate throughout our lives how to be a true seeker. I am so thankful that Liz Curtis Higgs is able to share this story with us. Our lives may not follow the same path but if we keep our eyes on God we will lead just as rich of lives.

Queen Sheba - a bold, wise, and courageous woman In "It's Good to Be Queen: Becoming as Bold, Gracious, and Wise as the Queen of Sheba" Liz Curtis Higgs presents the reader with a well-researched book about the biblical story of the meeting between Queen Sheba and King Salomon. Usually Bible readers know the "good" Queen Esther and the "bad" Queen Jezebel, but it is refreshing to read about this "bold, gracious, and wise" woman who had the courage to undertake a challenging journey that took her and those that traveled with her about two months (one way for about 1,500 miles) to travel and, at least, a two months stay (for the camels to rest) in order to verify what she had heard about this wise and rich king, Salomon, because she desired wisdom. The book follows the individual verses and is divided into eleven segments that start with "It's Good to 1) Be Bold, 2) Be Open, 3) Seek Wise Counsel, 4) Be Humbled, 5) Be Honest, 6) Encourage Others, 7) Praise God, 8) Give Generously, 9) Receive Graciously, 10) End Well, and as a conclusion 11) to Be His. Higgs states in chapter 1: "By focusing on Scripture, we'll avoid the shadowy corridors of speculation and legend, lest we get distracted and lose our spiritual footing." And she does exactly this in her book about Queen Sheba. The book does not only include questions for a book club, but also a study guide that can be used to dig deeper for personal study or in a Bible study group. I highly recommend this book. It is not only well written and well research (as can be seen in the extensive notes at the end of the book, but Liz Curtis Higgs presents Queen Sheba in such a way that she is a challenge to the reader. In chapter 3 she states: "Sheba was a true seeker, looking for God even if she wasn't fully aware of it. The impulse that drives her is not unlike the one that drives our own quest. In a sense we're all seekers longing for answers." The complimentary copy of this book was provided by the publisher through NetGalley free of charge. I was under no obligation to offer a positive review. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own. #It'sGoodToBeQueen #NetGalley

Liz Curtis Higgs in her new book, “It’s Good to Be Queen” published by WaterBrook Press brings us into the life of the Queen of Sheba. From the back cover: Sheba Journeyed Across the Desert with a Caravan of Riches, Only to Find the Greatest Treasure of Them All. So Can You. When it comes to famous queens of the Bible, we know the good one, Queen Esther, and the bad one, Queen Jezebel. Now meet the wise one, the queen of Sheba, who traveled to Jerusalem to test the mind and heart of a king. Her quest for wisdom will surprise you, challenge you, inspire you, change you. This wealthy royal from antiquity will show you how to live boldly, seek after truth, ask the right questions, encourage others, receive graciously, and honor the Lord above all. Shedding new light on this ancient biblical role model, Liz Curtis Higgs unveils timeless wisdom for all who aspire to please the king of Kings. I don’t think there are many books written about the Queen of Sheba. Good thing we have Liz Curtis Higgs to help make up for that situation. The whole account of the meeting of the Queen with King Solomon occurs in 1 Kings Chapter 10, verses 1-13. Doesn’t sound like much does it? However there is much truth to be learned and Ms. Higgs has mined these verses and presented it all in her book. In ten chapters Ms. Higgs unfolds ten wisdoms that we can learn and apply to our lives. With chapter headings from It’s Good to be Humbled to It’s Good to End Well all I can say is that this is really marvelous and I am glad to have received this book. At the end there are Discussion Questions and a Study Guide. This book will keep you thinking. I believe that everyone should have a copy of this book and it would make a great gift for friends and family!
