If you’ve ever longed to take a closer look at the Bible’s Book of Ruth, I happily recommend Liz Curtis Higgs’ new book, The Girl’s Still Got It. This book is a twelve-week (or twelve chapter) Bible study in commentary form. Seriously, it’s a commentary disguised as the story of you, the reader, led by Higgs to travel back in time to get to know Naomi and Ruth and the other people in their lives, but most of all the God Who loves them and meets all their needs in spite of whatever choices they’ve made.
Higgs takes readers through the four chapters of Ruth phrase by phrase. She’s done the research: Bible study in many translations, commentaries, and studies written by other people. She combines these with her own thoughts and with relevant life application stories from her own life to help readers really dig into this precious Bible book. Discussion questions and a study guide allow readers to really think things through or talk them over with others for new insight. A liberal amount of end notes shows dedicated readers where to go for even more information when they’ve finished enjoying Higgs’ book.
I love Higgs’ honesty and sense of humor. I appreciate the great amount of research she’s done. Combined, these produce an amazing Bible study book. I thank Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers for sending a complimentary copy to me in exchange for this honest review. I greatly encourage you to read this book as well!
