Soul Sustenance: Really Bad Girls of the Bible

I recently had a chance to read Really Bad Girls of the Bible: More Lessons from Less-than-Perfect Women. This book is great for anyone who feels less-than-perfect themselves! By taken women - quite honestly, lesser-known characters in most Bible stories - who are notorious for some fault, Liz Curtis Higgs pulls Biblically-based, sound lessons for all women.

Some of the stories are familiar, with a unique focus on the female in the story (David & Bathsheba, the beheading of John the Baptist), some of them are people who aren't usually seen as "bad" now, but were then (the bleeding woman), and some are much more obscure stories of the Bible (Jael, Athallah). All of them provide different lessons for all of us not-quite-perfect women.

This Biblically-accurate, well-written book isn't preachy, but rather encouraging. I like Higgs' writing style, and I look forward to reading more of her work!

Disclosure: I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
