Offers meaningful lessons for women who wonder if God loves them even if they have flaws, combining contemporary fiction and verse-by-verse commentary on the ancient stories of Sarah, Hagar, Rebekah, Leah, and Rachel.
Good Women Behaving Badly
A spiteful boss, a defiant employee, a manipulative mother, a desperate housewife, an envious sister...honey, we "know "these women. We've lived with them, worked with them, or caught a glimpse of them in our mirrors.
Now let's take a look at their ancient counterparts in Scripture: Sarah mistreated her maidservant, Hagar despised her mistress, Rebekah manipulated her son, Leah claimed her sister's husband, and Rachel envied her fertile sister.
They were far from evil, but hardly perfect. Mostly good, yet slightly bad. In other words, these matriarchal mamas look a lot like us.
""A Slightly Bad Girl is simply this: a woman unwilling to fully submit to God. We love him, serve him, and worship him, yet we find it difficult to trust him completely, to accept his plan for our lives, to rest in his sovereignty."" --from "Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible"
