The Girl's Still Got It, By Liz Curtis Higgs

The Girl's Still Got It: Take a walk with Ruth and the God who rocked her world, By Liz Curtis Higgs

The back cover reads:
Walk with Ruth as she travels from Moab to Bethlehem, certain of her calling, yet uncertain of her future. Hold Naomi's hand and watch love put the pieces of her broken life back together. And hang out with Boaz, their kinsman-redeemer, who blesses both women and honors God, big time. With best-selling author Liz Curtis Higgs by your side, you'll tarry in the corners of their homes, listening to their conversations, and consider every word of every verse until you can say, "I totally get the book of Ruth. And I see what God is trying to teach me through this rags-to-riches redemption story-He has a plan for my life."

Having enjoyed other books by Liz Curtis Higgs, I was excited to give this book a try.
From the moment I picked the book up I was in aw! Not only does Liz break down the bible verses, explaining was they mean, but she gives such a great look at the culture of that time! I felt like I was reading a history book at times, amazing!
The book presents like a bible study, with a study guide in the back. It could be read as a devotional, with wonderfully written chapters. The book offers information on Ruth and Naomi's cultures, traditions, and the what nots of that day.
After the contents list, there's a map, there are also discussion questions in the back as well.

As as usual, Liz Curtis Higgs, offers her, often amusing, narrative of through the story. Liz really makes the story come to life!

Though written for women, I would recommend this book for any gender and any age. In fact, my dad loves the story of Ruth and is planning on reading this book. As personal use or as a group study, this book is a mush read!
