I love reading but I found this pretty boring and didn't really appreciate the comparisons to the biblical stories. Sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars look in the mirror 4 Nov. 2007
By Gail Diaz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
most of us don't feel we are "really bad" or even just "bad" girls, but when you read Liz's book about "Slightly Bad" girls of the Bible, it really hits home. Just a "little" controlling, how bad can that be? I've yet to read a book by Liz Curtis Higgs that did not inspire me and cause me to think more deeply about my relationship with Christ.

5.0 out of 5 stars Filled with Humor 24 Jan. 2012
By Alex S - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
If you want to spend time laughing, at the women of the Bible and at yourself, buy the DVD. It is based on Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible: Flawed Women Loved by a Flawless God, and while it doesn't follow the book completely, it is a very useful video for small groups who would rather do the video than read through the book and accompanying workbook Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible Workbook: Flawed Women Loved by a Flawless God.

Because this video does not break into chapters like the book and workbook, it is aimed at a different audience. I purchased it thinking that I could show clips from it with each of our lessons, but discovered that it was better to watch in whole than in part.

A great purchase, but not necessary for the study itself.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some great points...but kind of all over the place... 20 Nov. 2007
By T.L. Walker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I actually picked up all three of the "Bad Girls of the Bible" books at once, having never heard of them before, and decided to start with the "Slightly Bad" girls and work my way up. First of all, I love the subtitle of this particular installment--"Flawed Women Loved by a Flawless God". That really hit me where it hurts, if you catch my drift. I also enjoyed learning more about Sarai/Sarah, Hagar, Leah, and Rachel and seriously believe that this book would be great for new Christian women, while to someone who has studied many different facets of Christianity and the Bible for most of her life, it's pretty much just an easy read that may or may not bring up some great new things to think about.

My main complaint with this book was what I would call the "filler stuff"--I feel as if there were way too many direct quotes from Mrs. Higgs sources. I really think she could have re-worded a lot of the quotes and made them more her own. It also bothered me that she repeated whole verses or parts of verses from numerous different versions of the Bible. Although I believe the King James to be the "best" translation, I am not averse to *all* other translations...still, it got to be almost confusing, especially when she was quoting certain verses from three or four different versions and those versions were saying some VERY different things. She really should have picked one translation and stuck with it.

My favorite part of the whole book? The comparison between contemporary storylines and Biblical stories! Mrs Higgs left me wanting to learn more, especially about Sarah's and Leah's contemporary characters. Overall, I'm glad that I picked this up because I do feel as if I may have learned a little bit from it, and even that little bit is something. I'm also looking forward to reading the other two books in the "series".

5.0 out of 5 stars Slightly Bad very good 19 Jan. 2009
By Q Mary - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A delightful read... I wish it had covered more than five characters, but the presentation was well organized. I used it as a reference for a group Bible study, and it provided me with fresh new insights on Sara and Hagar.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing way to look at the Bible 24 Jan. 2012
By Alex S - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I introduced this series to a group of women for a weekly Bible study. While the Title brought them in, there is definitely much content in the book, particularly when paired with the workbook Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible Workbook: Flawed Women Loved by a Flawless God.

At issue is the fact that we as women often think that God can't use us, simply because we aren't perfect. At the same time, God has always used flawed human beings, both men and women, to accomplish God's own purpose. If you are reading this as an individual, I recommend that you simply grab the book and go, but if you are leading a group of women (or mixed group), I strongly suggest incorporating the workbook into your group.

For a shorter lesson, with a few more laughs, I suggest Slightly Bad Girls. However, the video doesn't correspond one on one with the book and workbook, so it might work best without the other two.
