The Girl's Still Got It: Take a Walk with Ruth and the God Who Rocked Her World by Liz Curtis Higgs
Goodreads Summary: You know Ruthâ€™s story. Now meet her in person. And prepare to be changed. Â Walk with Ruth as she travels from Moab to Bethlehem, certain of her calling, yet uncertain of her future. Hold Naomiâ€™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. Â With best-selling author Liz Curtis Higgs by your side, youâ€™ll tarry in the corners of their ancient houses, listen to their conversations, and consider every word of every verse until you can say, â€œI totally get the book of Ruth. And I see what God is trying to teach me through this rags-to-riches redemption storyâ€”he has a plan for my life.â€ Â Girl, does he ever! Â Think of it as time travel without gimmicks, gizmos, or a DeLorean: a novel approach to Bible study that leaps from past to present, gleaning timeless truths that speak to the heart.
My review: I loved this book. Ruth is one of my favorite stories in the Bible, so I just knew I had to read this book. This is almost like a Bible story. Liz did a great job breaking down the verses and explaining what they meant. It was clear that she had done a lot of research before writing this book. Even with all that, this book managed to be a fun and entertaining read. Liz definitely included her sense of humor every once in a while. I found this a very refreshing book. I loved to see her taken on the story of Ruth. It is also very much a romance story, which I love! Not just that, but through this book we see how AMAZING God is. Why wouldn't we trust Him? Such a good book! I definitely recommend it!
