The Girl's Still Got It
Ruth. My favorite book of the Bible.
It's no wonder when given a chance to read a book about her life, I snatched it up.
Liz Curtis Higgs' book, The Girl's Still Got It, is going to be released July 10, 2012.
I have never read any of Higgs' books before. Higgs goes into depth about what it might have been like for Ruth and the other characters in her story. The book includes discussion questions and a study guide. I also saw that there is a DVD available for purchase. It seems like this book would be fitting for a women's Bible study group.
Ruth continues to be my favorite book in the Bible. I appreciated Higgs' statement about the overall purpose of Ruth: "The book of Ruth is a crash course in Soverignty 101, with God whispering all through it, 'Trust me!'" (2).
Higgs does a great job of knowing the background of the culture.
This book was good, but I did not connect with her writing style very well.
I reviewed this book for Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers Blogging for Books. I received this book for free in exchange for a review of the book.
