When it Comes to Badness, There's Nothing New Under the Sun In her best-selling book Bad Girls of the Bible, Liz Curtis Higgs breathed new life into ancient stories depicting eight of the most infamous women in scriptural history, from Jezebel to Delilah. Biblically sound and cutting-edge fresh, Bad Girls already has helped thousands of women experience God's grace anew by learning more about our nefarious sisters. And there are more where they came from! With Really Bad Girls of the Bible, Liz reveals the power of God's sovereignty in the lives of other shady ladies we know by reputation but have rarely studied in depth: Bathsheba, the bathing beauty. Jael, the tent-peg-toting warrior princess. Herodias, the horrible beheader. Tamar, the widow and not-so-timid temptress. Athaliah, the deadly daughter of Jezebel. And three ancient women whose names we do not know but who have much to teach us: the ashamed Adulteress, the bewitching Medium of En Dor, and the desperate Bleeding Woman. The eye-opening stories of these eight "Really Bad" women demonstrate one really life-changing concept: the sovereign power of God to rule our hearts and our lives with grace, compassion, and hope.

How might women in the Bible tell their stories if they were prompted to do so by Eve Ensler's controversial play, The Vagina Monologues? This collection imagines some answers to that question. The monologues herein are written by a variety of authors, including scholars, undergraduates, clergy, and laywomen; the content of the narratives reflects this variety, being at times faithful or irreverent, tragic or even funny. All seek to give twenty-first-century voices to women in canonical texts--including the Hebrew Bible, Deuterocanonical books, and New Testament--who are often speechless, nameless, or otherwise marginalized. Not for the faint of heart, these monologues not only end the silences but also add flesh and bone to characters whose experiences have too easily been justified, metaphorized, or altogether ignored. By naming the torn places in these women's stories, this volume invites readers to encounter both the biblical characters and their contemporary interpreters with an attitude of compassionate listening. Our hope is that such compassionate listening may contribute not only to more just readings of sacred texts, but also to the mission of Eve Ensler and V-Day to end global violence against women and girls.

WARNING: using this book can become addictive--you may find yourself taking the complete Bible journey--one day at a time—again and again. Finish the entire Bible in a year or less using these daily readings and reflections. Here are all the great stories, prayers, quotations, poetry, heroes and villains that make the Bible so special. There are also excerpts from dozens of Bible commentators, from Augustine to Martin Luther to Pope Benedict XVI. The author's role is that of a traveler, a lay person learning from the experts, and occasionally disagreeing with them. Also included are themes from Shakespeare, Mark Twain, Gandhi, Dickens, and many others, where they seem to fit. To get the full benefit requires about 10-20 minutes of reading each day. When you finish you will have covered 73 Bible books; 27 in the New Testament and 46 in the Old Testament (including Apocrypha if you wish). Like the old Alka-Seltzer ad, you will be able to say, “I can’t believe I read the whole thing!” There are stories of love, devotion, high adventure, great heroism, amazing creatures on sea and land, princes, queens, kings and patriarchs, colossal battles far more grand than anything in the movies and some of the world’s best-known poetry. The stories of Jesus are at the center of everything—you can get to know this great man through the gospels and epistles and the prophets and psalms he loved to quote.

She examines the differences between Adam and Eve and the interactions in the midst of Satan and Eve and other biblical women that followed Eve’s path. This book will transport you through creation and lead you back through the expectations of the “Wo.” E. C. Norman expresses how important it is for women to learn from Eve and her construction tools and see how they are still in operation today.
