It's Good to Be Queen

It's Good to Be Queen
Becoming as Bold, Gracious, and Wise as the Queen of Sheba
Liz Curtis Higgs
There isn't a whole lot written about the queen of Sheba. We know that she was wise, but sought out Solomon because of his reports of wisdom. The author has taken these few scriptures and other verses throughout the Bible to pull together a women's Bible study on how to be a woman of wisdom like the queen of Sheba. The author takes a personal approach and adds her story telling talents to make those few verses about the queen come alive. The book ends with study guides for each chapter so the book can be used in a small group setting or for personal study.

The writing style lent a more fictional feel to the book, while capturing the reader's attention. I liked her frequent use of scripture and enjoyed the thoughts she brought out about the strengths of the queen. The study guide in the back was a plus that makes it helpful for further reflection. This isn't a typical topic for a women's study and I think readers will appreciate that.

I received this book free of charge from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
