The Women of Christmas by Liz Curtis Higgs

This was an absolutely delightful little book, filled with snippets of the different stories we are told in the Bible, thoughts from everyday people (like you and I), and the author’s whimsical thoughts about each part.

The book tells the stories of three women – Mary, the mother of Jesus, Elizabeth, the mother of John, and Anna, the prophetess.  For those of us who have heard the Christmas stories over and over again, you would think it would be the same thing as normal, but it’s really not!  The author takes you through the stories piece by piece, commenting on all aspects of what’s said – and not said.  I loved the way she made them come to life, and really make sense for us NOW!  She asked questions about parts of the Scriptures that made me laugh out loud, they were so funny.  But she had some really, really great points!

At the end of the book is a study guide, with three questions for each chapter.  It’s an easy guide, not a whole lot of work there, but would make a great starting point for a small group study, or even for a group of girlfriends who read through the book together.

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.  The thoughts and opinions expressed here are completely my own.
