The Girl's Still Got It - A Review
The book of Ruth has long been my favorite. And Liz Curtis Higgs is one of my favorite authors. When I was given an opportunity to review this nonfiction book by her, I jumped at the chance. Having read her other nonfiction books, The Bad Girls of the Bible books, I knew I'd enjoy this one. What I got the most out of this book isn't the love story that speaks to the romantic in me, but the fact that God is in control of EVERYTHING. This book isn't a story of pain and suffering. It's a study of hope and redemption. What's also fascinating to me is the point that the author makes about the role of women in the book of Ruth. Women aren't minor characters. They're major characters and they are strong.
I received this book for free from the publisher, Waterbrook Multnomah for the purpose of reviewing as a part of the Blogging for Books program. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
Rating - 5 stars

Liz has created a YouTube video called the Righteous Ruth Rap. Take a look at it and enjoy it.
