Overview

Wicked Women of the Bible by Ann Spangler

What can Jezebel, the Bible’s wickedest queen, reveal about God’s holiness and power and even about his sense of humor? What about the Woman at the Well—the one with five husbands and a live-in lover? And what of the prostitute whose tears bathe the feet of Jesus in front of people who despise her?

There are also “wicked good” women like Deborah, Ruth, Hannah, Abigail, Esther, Mary, and more. What do their lives tell us about God’s invincible love and his determined plan to save us?

In Wicked Women of the Bible Ann Spangler tells the stories of twenty wicked and “wicked good” women in greater detail. At the end of each story, Ann provides a brief section including additional historical and cultural background as well as a brief Bible study in order to enhance the book’s appeal to both individuals and groups.

The stories of these women of the Bible reveal a God who is not above it all but who stoops down to meet us where we are in order to extend his love and mercy.

Ann Spangler in her new book, “Wicked Women of the Bible” published by Zondervan transports readers back to biblical times and brings stories to life. From the back cover: What can Jezebel, the Bible’s wickedest queen, reveal about God’s holiness and power and even about his sense of humor? What about the Woman at the Well—the one with five husbands and a live-in lover? And what of the prostitute whose tears bathe the feet of Jesus in front of people who despise her? There are also “wicked good” women like Deborah, Ruth, Hannah, Abigail, Esther, Mary, and more. What do their lives tell us about God’s invincible love and his determined plan to save us? In Wicked Women of the Bible Ann Spangler tells the stories of twenty wicked and “wicked good” women in greater detail. At the end of each story, Ann provides a brief section including additional historical and cultural background as well as a brief Bible study in order to enhance the book’s appeal to both individuals and groups. The stories of these women of the Bible reveal a God who is not above it all but who stoops down to meet us where we are in order to extend his love and mercy. There are those that feel that The Bible is strictly about the men. In this book Ms. Spangler shows that the women play an important part as well. Not all of these women are nice. In these twenty stories some of them are really wicked while others are good. Why did God allow these stories into His Bible? What truths can we learn about God? After each story there is a brief section called “The Times” which provides additional background information to delve more deeply into their stories. Then there is “The Takeaway” which includes questions designed for individual and group Bible study. Women are important. God thinks so and these stories show just how important. I recommend it highly! Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Zondervan. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

I recieved this book from BookLook Bloggers, and I couldn't have been more excited to read this book! The title of this book is slightly deceiving, one's mind automatically goes to the morally bad definition, but Spangler includes the ""cool", "awesome" definition that portrays something as great in slang. With that definition the title is fitting. This book includes women from Eve to Mary Magdalene, but each story also includes the men involved. For example Miriam's story includes Moses and Aaron. For that reason this book is good for both men and women alike. Each section ends with takeaway questions which make it great for individual or group studies. This book is wonderfully written and informative, as well as entertaining.

Nice selection of portrayals of Biblical women, with each having a storyline to study and contemplate in the context of the reader's denomination. I feel that the title was chosen by the publisher for it's eye-catching value, but that does not denigrate the value of the writing and the author's aims. I feel that it delves into the story of each of these women in a way that the King James editors never could. I received this book for free through Goodreads Giveaways.
