Bad Girls of the Bible | Exploring Women of Questionable Virtue (Essex)
Bold, Notorious Women
Barbara Essex, author of Bad Boys of the Bible, brings to life the Bible's "bad girls" -- notorious women we love to hate. Exploring lives filled with betrayal, deception, rejection, jealousy, and exploitation, she looks beyond the notoriety to show us women of exceptional boldness, courage, determination, and independence.
Bad Girls of the Bible: Exploring Women of Questionable Virtue tells us about women we know - women not that different from ourselves: Eve, Lot's wife, Rebekah, Tamar, Potiphar, Delilah, Jezebel, Job's wife, Gomer, Herodias, the woman caught in adultery, and Sapphira. This 12-week Bible study is designed for all who seek fresh ways to understand the stories of biblical women.
