Dynamic Women of the Bible

Today the first copy of this, my 21st book, came in the mail. It's always exciting to have a book in hand for the first time and to see up close and personal what a fine job Baker Publishing did on the cover and interior design. It was great fun writing the book---testing the limits with how much I could toy with the sparse biographies of these biblical figures. Lot's wife and daughters are examples. Mom turned into a pillar of salt for her sin of looking back---over-kill I suggest, and the daughters, believe it or not, were spared. Amazing. They seduced (and become pregnant by) their drunken father. The Bible is a most interesting volume to say the least. The book is meant for a Bible study or book group, with questions at the end of each chapter, some more than slightly risqué.
