Thank you Blogging for Books for giving me this book in exchange for an honest review.
EXCITED! That's all I can say. I was just so excited to be chosen to receive a free review copy of The Women of Christmas by one of my favorite authors Liz Curtis Higgs. I adore Christmas books. You probably know that if you've read my blog for long. ~smile~ This book is no exception.
Liz Curtis Higgs can make characters come to life like no other writer I know. This time, the characters are real women from the Bible. Elizabeth, Mary, and Anna. All precious women who were central to the Christmas history of Jesus' birth.
Mrs. Higgs can get more out of a few lines of scriptures than I can dream. The insight that Mrs. Higgs gleans through use of multiple Bible translations and versions, study helps, original languages, and other research give a depth to the Luke 2 story that makes it vibrant. You might say that her descriptions quicken the scriptures for us. Contextual history and customs bring depth.
Cocoa, The Christmas Story, and insight from Sister Liz Curtis Higgs. What more could you want? Oh, maybe some slippers and a blanket. Can you tell I enjoyed this book?
