Bad Girls of the Bible ~ today's the day!

Bad Girls of the Bible: And What We Can Learn from Them ~ by Liz Curtis Higgs
Ten of the Bible’s best-known femmes fatales parade across the pages of Bad Girls of the Bible with situations that sound oh-so-familiar.  Eve had food issues.  Potiphar’s Wife and Delilah had man trouble.  Lot’s Wife and Michal couldn’t let go of the past, Sapphira couldn’t let go of money, and Jezebel couldn’t let go of anything.  Yet the Woman at the Well had her thirst quenched at last, while Rahab and the Sinful Woman left their sordid histories behind.  Let these Bad Girls show you why studying the Bible has never been more fun!
My friend Donna and I went to Nashville on February 26th for the taping of a video to accompany this Bible study.  I told you about it and shared photos.
Join two dozen women in a cozy coffeehouse setting, as author and speaker Liz Curtis Higgs explores the lives of ten of the Bible’s best-known femmes fatales.  From Eve to Jezebel to Delilah, each woman’s story and struggles come to life, as Liz brings home this vital truth:  “No one is good — except God alone” (Luke 18:19).
The book and video are being released today.  The 288-page paperback has a study guide and discussion questions, and the video shows us women listening to Liz tell stories.  In the following short video, Liz sings about the "bad girls" (this isn't the one I'm in):

Meet all ten Bad Girls in less than two minutes.  Liz Curtis Higgs says, "I'm not really a jazz singer.  You've been warned."

UPDATE:  After I put up this post, I commented under Liz's video on Facebook:  "Liz, I wrote about today's release of your book and the accompanying study video."  Minutes later, she replied:
BLESS YOU, Bonnie, many times over! :>)
If the video quits working, you can watch it on YouTube.

An intriguing title, for sure...and I enjoyed her singing. She seems such a joyful person---listening to her makes me smile.
