The stories of these women of the Bible reveal a God who is not above it all but who stoops down to meet us where we are in order to extend his love and mercy.
I know they say never judge a book by it's cover, but I have to admit that the title and cover of this book definitely drew the fairy tale fan in me in. I could not help but think of all of the wicked women in all of my favorite princess tales. These tales are full of drama, full of good versus evil and full of fun. The Bible is no different! Actually, if you really think about it, the Bible can often read like a modern soap opera... betrayal, secrets and wicked women! I loved taking a closer look at the stories of these wicked women of the Bible (and wickedly good women too!). Not only did the book tell these stories in a way that was easy to understand and entertaining to read, but it also gave a bit of historical background to the time in which they lived. For me personally, this is extremely helpful in helping to understand these stories on a deeper level. We are in such a different time and place now than these women lived in that it can be hard to truly grasp not just what happened, but the significance of their actions.
If you're looking for a way to dig deeper into the stories of the women in the Bible and see how God used them- both the good and the wicked- Wicked Women of the Bible is a fantastic resource.
Wicked Women of the Bible will be available on September 22nd, but you can preorder now at Family Christian!
