Liz Curtis Higgs has been telling tales since she wrote her first novel at the tender age of ten. Careers in broadcasting, public speaking, nonfiction writing, and children s books brought her back to her first love fiction at the turn of the 21st century.
Can modern women learn lessons from the women of the Bible? Higgs, a best-selling Christian author, offers her live audience a retelling of the lives of Sarah, Hagar, Rebekah, Leah, and Rachel--the wives of the first three biblical patriarchs. These women had "control issues." Faced with infertility, bad marriages, favoritism, and/or slavery, each sought to give God a "little help" in dealing with these matters. Despite their flaws, the women were shown compassion and love by God. Truly inspirational, Higgs's film makes her points with empathy and humor. She proves that her believing audience can indeed learn from their biblical sisters. The only flaw here is the lack of chaptering on the disc; if it stops, viewing begins at the beginning--one can't move forward or back to review the best bits. Still, the program is recommended for libraries where Christian materials are popular.--Kathleen Sullivan, Phoenix P.L. Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
"I love Liz's work! She entertains while teaching and leaves me
with points to ponder long after. Her insights are fresh and
exciting and will draw readers back into the Word."
