By its title, I was expecting “Wicked Women of the Bible” to be about Jezebel and others like her; however, Ann Spangler surprises with stories about Deborah, Ruth, Eve, Abigail, Bathsheba and many more. Some of the women would typically be considered wicked, while others were described as “wicked good”.
Using biblical accounts and historical and cultural backgrounds, Spangler tells the story of twenty women in great detail. Some stories, particularly Bathsheba, will be thought-provoking and make an excellent topic for discussion. A Bible study is included for individual and group study.
Spangler’s work is well thought out and planned. The title is a little misleading, but don’t judge the book by its cover. I found it interesting, informative and thought-provoking. You may find yourself looking at the women in the Bible a little differently after reading this book.
