It's Good to Be Queen Review-Worth the Read!


About the Book

Sheba Journeyed Across the Desert with a Caravan of Riches, Only to Find the Greatest Treasure of Them All. So Can You.

When it comes to famous queens of the Bible, we know the good one, Queen Esther, and the bad one, Queen Jezebel. Now meet the wise one, the queen of Sheba, who traveled to Jerusalem to test the mind and heart of a king.

Her quest for wisdom will surprise you, challenge you, inspire you, change you. This wealthy royal from antiquity will show you how to live boldly, seek after truth, ask the right questions, encourage others, receive graciously, and honor the Lord above all.

Shedding new light on this ancient biblical role model, Liz Curtis Higgs unveils timeless wisdom for all who aspire to please the king of Kings. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

I love Liz Curtis Higgs' writing. She is so talented at creating a story line or in this case explaining a story line. I have read this passage in the Bible multiple times but I always read it and just take it for granted. As if  it was totally normal for a woman to travel so far with tons of people and camels and gold and jewels and spices. As if it's no big deal as to why this whole story is even in the Bible -it's obviously in there for a reason. I think Liz Curtis Higgs does a great job at not only reading the passage and explaining the history, but also how the Queen of Sheba is an example to women. I like that she sticks to what the Bible does say and not what others have assumed. I like that the entire passage in I Kings is broken down almost word by word so that it actually makes sense. 
I loved this book. 

Five stars.
