“The Girl’s Still Got It” by Liz Curtis Higgs- book review

“Take a Walk with Ruth and the God who Rocked Her World” sub title. 

Liz Curtis Higgs does it again, she opens the Bible to us with a bright new look.  This time it is the book of Ruth.  While we are probably familiar with the basic story, Higgs takes it verse by verse, and explores several different translations, and expands and explains.  She takes us into some of the history and traditions, so we can better understand the story.

And what a story it is! Love, death, famine, and a bit of romance!  All in the Bible.

The book has extensive footnotes and bibliography.  There are study questions for use in personal study or a group setting.  Each chapter has a small testimonial from a “Ruth in Real Life” which is written from a woman who has experienced what characteristics are explained in the chapter.

This book is written in a casual, conversational style.  It is quite easy to read, and I think it will appeal to women who do not like to read.  Great for a young women’s Bible study or Sunday School class.

Disclaimer:  I was provided an Advanced Readers Copy of this book by the publisher, Waterbrook Press.  All opinions expressed are my own.
