She’s Still Got It: Interview with Author Liz Curtis Higgs
New York Times best-selling author Liz Curtis Higgs shares her latest non-fiction book and how it's OK to be a bad girl.
I didn’t come to know Christ until I was 27. I came roaring into the kingdom as this former bad girl. I’m kind of edgy and out there. That hasn’t changed. When you’re that way and you read about these women in the Bible that are meek, mild, gentle and soft spoken—always do the right thing girl, I have no door to enter that women’s heart. Ruth isn’t that woman. She’s often portrayed that way. Not only is she a Moabite, who has this past, but when Naomi Ruth’s (mother-in-law) says to her to return roughly 12 times—Ruth says “No. Your people will be my people.” She bucks the system and goes against the flow. I love her.
You best indentify with Ruth, then.
Yes. This is a real person. This is not a parable story. The beautiful thing of it is that we all bring who we are to the Word of God and he allows us to do that. He trusts us to handle His Word. It takes my breath away as a Bible teacher. I am glad the story telling comes through-because it is a story. If you turn it into a dry book, you missed the Book of Ruth.
