The Girl's Still Got It: Take a Walk with Ruth and the God Who Rocked Her World by Liz Curtis Higgs

Goodreads Summary: You know Ruth’s story. Now meet her in person. And prepare to be changed.   Walk with Ruth as she travels from Moab to Bethlehem, certain of her calling, yet uncertain of her future. Hold Naomi’s hand and watch love put the pieces of her broken life back together. And hang out with Boaz, their kinsman-redeemer, who blesses both women and honors God, big time.   With best-selling author Liz Curtis Higgs by your side, you’ll tarry in the corners of their ancient houses, listen to their conversations, and consider every word of every verse until you can say, “I totally get the book of Ruth. And I see what God is trying to teach me through this rags-to-riches redemption story—he has a plan for my life.”   Girl, does he ever!   Think of it as time travel without gimmicks, gizmos, or a DeLorean: a novel approach to Bible study that leaps from past to present, gleaning timeless truths that speak to the heart.

My review: I loved this book. Ruth is one of my favorite stories in the Bible, so I just knew I had to read this book. This is almost like a Bible story. Liz did a great job breaking down the verses and explaining what they meant. It was clear that she had done a lot of research before writing this book. Even with all that, this book managed to be a fun and entertaining read. Liz definitely included her sense of humor every once in a while. I found this a very refreshing book. I loved to see her taken on the story of Ruth. It is also very much a romance story, which I love! Not just that, but through this book we see how AMAZING God is. Why wouldn't we trust Him? Such a good book! I definitely recommend it!
