Wicked Women of the Bible By Ann Spangler

This is another great book by Ann Spangler! Her books are always great for Bible study and reading. Those people mentioned in the Bible are for us to learn from in both their positive and negative choices. Of the 20 “wicked” women Ms. Spangler covers, you might be surprised at first. Some of the women studied are “wicked” as in naughty girls and others are “wicked” in the slang term of awesome! In her talented style the author shares each lady’s story in such a way it brings them to life. I appreciate that she does not turn it into fiction, nor does she detract from God’s Word with a great deal of “imaginary” information. Her sense of humor is sprinkled throughout and makes the reading even more enjoyable. Although I have known about all these women through my Bible reading, this book helped me learn even more about them and see them in a different perspective. They became flesh and blood people with failures and struggles just like women of today.
The mini biographies include very interesting historical backgrounds concerning the women. Questions at the end of the chapters provoke thought into how you might apply what you have learned to your life, and deeper understanding of the woman in a scriptural context.
As always with Ann Spangler’s books, it stays in my personal library. It is great devotional or study book for groups, women, and teens.
I received this book free from http://www.BookLookBloggers.com. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have stated are my own.
