Overview

Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible: Flawed Women Loved by a Flawless God by Liz Curtis Higgs

Good Women Behaving Badly

A spiteful boss, a defiant employee, a manipulative mother, a desperate housewife, an envious sister…honey, we know these women. We’ve lived with them, worked with them, or caught a glimpse of them in our mirrors.

Now let’s take a look at their ancient counterparts in Scripture: Sarah mistreated her maidservant, Hagar despised her mistress, Rebekah manipulated her son, Leah claimed her sister’s husband, and Rachel envied her fertile sister.

They were far from evil, but hardly perfect. Mostly good, yet slightly bad. In other words, these matriarchal mamas look a lot like us.

“A Slightly Bad Girl is simply this: a woman unwilling to fully submit to God. We love him, serve him, and worship him, yet we find it difficult to trust him completely, to accept his plan for our lives, to rest in his sovereignty.” —from Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible

One thing you can gleam from this book is that God loves women who are flawed. Also you can learn it is okey to be flawed and stop worrying about being perfect. God loves you no matter what. I enjoyed reading about the women and how Liz brought it into everyday - today - situations. However Leah and Rachel's situation left me with lots of questions as to how come God loved Leah more than Rachel and blessed her first. God reaches out to the ones people would not expect him to reach out to. I am getting my answers as I write these reveiws so see it gets you to thinking. Now I am going to do an in depth study on all the Women of the Bible. Before getting this book I was questioning God on why he didn't bless women in the Bible. I found the answer. Slightly Bad Girls is the first of Liz's Books I have read. I will have to read the rest.
