Format: Paperback
For those who love studying women in the bible, Liz Curtis Higgs, offers a twist with her own brand of humor. Ten "bad girls" are included in this book including the well-known stories of Eve, Delilah, Rahab and Jezebel. She also includes other women that are not studied as often like: Potiphar's Wife (Genesis 39:7), Sapphira (Acts 5:1) and Michal (1 Samuel 18:20).
Unlike other books that plunge into the study, Liz uses her storytelling talents to weave a contemporary setting for each woman. After reading the story, readers are treated to humorous, yet thought-provoking commentary. Each chapter ends appropriately with several "Good Girl Thoughts Worth Considering" questions.
These book definitely provided new insights and was "fun" reading. I would recommend this book for new female Christians and/or for women who just enjoy reading biblical studies with out the (yawn) overzealous commentary.
Higgs continues her "Bad Girl" series with "Really Bad Girls of the Bible" and "Mad Mary: A Bad Girl From Magdala, Transformed at His Appearing."

Format: Paperback
This book changed my life. It may not be "scholarly" as one reviewer pointed out, but for me, the average Christian woman who is so glad to fall into bed in one piece at night, I don't want dry Biblical exposition! Give me stories! Give me laughter, give me tears. Give me thought-provoking messages to ponder. Give me grace. If you are in need of grace without having to wade through commentaries and "scholarly" books that must be accompanied by eight feet tall glasses of water, Liz is your lady! And if her lessons at the end are from her own heart, then be glad, for her heart is as compassionate, understanding and accepting as your down comforter. Highly, highly recommended. Lisa Samson, author of The Church Ladies.

Format: Paperback
Not only has Liz Curtis Higgs done her research, but she's a great storyteller, to boot. By first placing each featured woman's story in the appropriate historical setting, and then creating a similar story in current times, Curtis Higgs does as any good pastor would, giving the reader a sense of how lessons from the Bible can be helpful today.
Once you mix in Curtis Higgs' sense of humor, you have a great book of learning, laughter, and thought provoking moments. The humor allows the reader to lighten up on herself (or himself) about past transgressions, and to see that even those "Bad Girls of the Bible" were able to change and grow in positive ways -- most of them, anyway. "Bad Girls" brings a sense of hope, especially to those who may be struggling with issues of self-esteem and concern that they might not be "good enough" for God.
Curtis Higgs brings to light women that are often missed or have not received much attention compared with the men of the Bible --yet another great aspect of this book. I look forward to reading the next installment!

I found this book very eye-opening and applicable. I saw a little of myself in each of these women and the devasting effects that sin can have on yourself and others. I strongly recommend this book, its funny, interesting, will definetly change your view of yourself.

Format: Paperback
When my husband saw me reading "Bad Girls of the Bible," he asked me why I wasn't reading about the good girls. The answer is simple; occasionally you learn more from the mistakes of some than from the perfection of others. Curtis-Higgs has written an excellent book. Combining fiction, research, and thought provoking questions, she's provided readers from all kinds of backgrounds, both christian and non-christian, points to ponder. I'm eagerly anticipating the second installment.

Format: Paperback
This book is entertaining, thought provoking, and convicting. I saw myself in so many of the examples given. I learned new things from Scripture. I intend to read it again. The really good news is, there's a sequel coming in the summer of 2000: Really Bad Girls of the Bible! I can hardly wait.

This work is God-breathed, the best ever to come from Liz Curtis Higgs. Absolutely life-changing! You'll alternately weep, sigh, gasp, rejoice -- and yes, even giggle. And oh, is it filled with depth and grace.

Bad Girls certainly can teach us much! This book is a wonderful vehicle for bible study groups and the depth of Liz's research is astounding! The contemporary stories are a magnetic pull, putting the reader right into the situation. How could a serious student of the Bible not be intrigued? Liz's excellent questions at the ends of the chapters really make you think, too.
