Bad girls of the Bible : and what we can learn from them by Liz Curtis Higgs( Book )

26 editions published between 1982 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,657 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Bad Girls of the Bible, author Liz Curtis Higgs offers a clear-sighted, life-changing approach to understanding those "other women" in Scripture -- such as Delilah, Jezebel, Rahab, Lot's wife, and others. Liz combines a contemporary retelling of their stories with a solid, verse-by-verse study of their lives and the lessons we can learn from them. Whether they were Bad to the Bone, Bad for a Moment, or Bad for a Season but Not Forever, these infamous sisters show us how not to handle the challenges of life. With her trademark humor and heartfelt encouragement, Liz Curtis Higgs teaches us how to avoid their tragic mistakes and joyfully embrace God's grace. - Back cover

When the lads are forced to depart the glen, Jamie McKie intends to brighten his daughter's summer by escorting Davina to the Isle of Arran. Her cousins make her welcome at the manse, and the parish delights in hearing their talented fiddler. But when she catches the eye of a handsome young Highlander on Midsummer Eve, sheltered Davina is unprepared for the shocking events that follow. A timeless story of passion and revenge, of lost innocence and shattered dreams, Grace in Thine Eyes explores the sorrow of unspeakable shame and the gift of immeasurable grace."--Publisher description

Mad Mary : a bad girl from Magdala, transformed at His appearing by Liz Curtis Higgs( Book )

4 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here's the truth, sister: Mary Magdalene has been knocking at the door of my heart for three years. "She got squeezed out of Bad Girls of the Bible when I realized I needed more time to research her complex story. Then she was dropped from the roster for Really Bad Girls of the Bible because Tamar and Bathsheba took up more than their allotted pages. (Pushy, huh?) Now I know the real reason why Mary M waited so patiently in the wings: She deserves a book all her own! "Come meet the genuine Mary Magdalene of the Bible-not the scarlet-draped legend-and follow her one-of-a-kind story of deliverance and dedication, despair and declaration. Like my previous Bad Girls books, Mad Mary begins with the fictional journey of Mary Margaret Delaney, a bad woman-or was it madwoman?-adrift in contemporary Chicago, desperate for someone to save her from herself. "Once Mary Delaney's story has prepared our hearts for learning, we'll leave the Windy City and go verse by verse through Mary of Magdala's ancient biblical tale, tossing aside modern misconceptions as we embrace the real Mary M. "Prepare to be amazed by this eye-opening sister who was transformed twice when You-Know-Who showed up and spoke her name. Oh, Mary!" Based on the life of the first mother to cross the Rocky Mountains and settle in the Northwest, "A Name of Her Own" is the fictionalized account of a real womanUs fight to establish a home in a new landscape, to survive in a nation at war, to protect her sons and raise them well, and, despite an abusive, alcoholic husband, to keep her marriage together. (September)
