Higgs vuelve a revisar el conjunto de mujeres de la Biblia para su próxima entrega de su muy exitosa serie de Mujeres Malas de la Biblia. En tanto que Mujeres Malas de la Biblia y Mujeres Realmente Malas de la Biblia trataron de aquellas como Jezabel y Salomé, a menudo demostrando que estas mujeres no fueron tan nefastas como sugieren tradiciones posteriores, este libro toma un giro diferente, mirando a las que parecen ser cinco mujeres buenas de la Biblia y hallándolas con serias faltas. Concentrándose en Génesis, Higgs se enfoca en Sara (maniática del control), Agar (llena de amargura), Rebeca (una intrigante maquinadora que mostraba favoritismo por sus hijos), Lea (otra intrigante) y Raquel (consumida por los celos). Un tema que emerge con claridad es cómo la fertilidad, o la falta de ella, dominó las vidas de estas mujeres en una cultura patriarcal. Como siempre, el tono de Higgs es conversacional y amistoso, hablándole al lector en segunda persona al recalcar la lección —y el humor— en la historia de cada mujer. Como es su costumbre, Higgs combina con mucha habilidad relatos ficticios de mujeres malas contemporáneas con una exégesis profunda de las historias de sus contrapartes bíblicas. Higgs también revela sus propias trastadas al entretejer anécdotas personales en cada capítulo, subrayando así el tema general del libro: incluso las mujeres fieles pueden a veces hacer daño y ser egoístas.



Higgs revisits the well of Biblical women for this next installment in her hugely successful Bad Girls of the Bible series. Whereas Bad Girls of the Bible and Really Bad Girls of the Bible tackled the Jezebels and Salomes, often demonstrating that these women were not as nefarious as later traditions would suggest, this one takes a different tack, looking at five seemingly good girls of the Bible and finding them seriously flawed. Focusing on Genesis, Higgs looks at Sarah (a control freak), Hagar (who was filled with bitterness), Rebekah (a conniving schemer who played favorites with her sons), Leah (another schemer) and Rachel (who was consumed by jealousy). One theme that emerges clearly is how fertility, or the lack of it, dominated these women's lives in a patriarchal culture. As always, Higgs's tone is chatty and girlfriendish, addressing the reader in the second person as she emphasizes the lesson—and the humor—in each woman's tale. As is her custom, Higg’s capably blends fictional vignettes of contemporary bad girls with in-depth exegesis of their Biblical counterparts' stories. Higgs also reveals her own foibles as she weaves personal anecdotes into each chapter, underscoring the book's overall theme: even faithful women can sometimes be hurtful and selfish.
