Publisher's Weekly

Higgs, bestselling author of Bad Girls of the Bible, offers a sweet but substantial gift book about accepting God's grace and leaving the past behind. Higgs's personal history includes "a lost decade of sex, drugs, and rock 'n 'roll," and though she doesn't focus on her past, she writes believably as someone who struggled with accepting grace herself. Each chapter contains multiple Scripture verses strung together with comments she's received from readers (such as, "I don't feel I am worthy of having God forgive me of my sins and weaknesses. I feel like a failure.") and reflections from her own life. She walks through several stages of receiving grace-including doubting that grace could be possible, confronting sin, forgiving yourself and repenting. Readers will feel at ease with Higgs's down-home style that's never preachy. Higgs aims to provide "a field guide, tracing a well-worn footpath from doubt to belief, pointing us away from shame and toward hope." She succeeds, and readers who are looking for more insight from this former Bad Girl will be very thankful. (Sept. 19) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.


Best selling author, Liz Curtis Higgs, touches the heart with her latest Embrace Grace: Welcome to the Forgiven Life. It would be hard to admit that there is any one of us who does not wear a coat (thin or thick) of guilt regarding something in our past or some current mistake, even though we know we are forgiven. Liz shares how an embrace is so much more comforting than a hug. An embrace truly has so much depth. Chapter by chapter she explores moving forward through embracing doubt, faith, truth, sin, forgiveness, repentance, and of course, embracing grace.
Liz relates to the reader as if she has been a close friend for many years, a big sister, or even a wise older woman in one’s life. She persistently writes of concerns that she has had, and those which woman have shared with her through the years without exposing any identities. I found the points that I related to were numerous and I would expect others would find the same. It is so easy to connect to Liz as she shares without condemnation, statements like “it is not about getting your act together. It’s about getting together with God.” Filled with Scripture for each circumstance, this book is a reminder that there is a heartfelt answer to every situation located in one book: God’s Word.
Read this for warmth, understanding, healing of hurts, and to help shed that which may be holding you back. Most of all, read this to move forward in your walk and know that you have even one more friend in Liz Cutis Higgs who has an open door and has “…been waiting for you. Holding this good news close to my heart, longing to share it.” She has been longing to share it with you. -- Debra S. Murphy, Christian Book Previews.com

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Embrace Grace

"Liz Curtis Higgs is a gifted writer and poet who understands the human heart with all its complexity, beauty, and pain. She also understands the heart of God. Reading this book will make you want to let go of anything that keeps you from his loving embrace. I recommend it highly."
–Rebecca Pippert, best-selling author of Out of the Saltshaker & Into the World

"For every woman who has ever felt as if she were standing on the outside looking in, welcome home! In Embrace Grace, Liz Curtis Higgs gently addresses the lies that keep us from everything our hearts so desperately need: love, forgiveness, and most of all, acceptance. Don’t stand out there shivering in the cold! Christ stands with open arms waiting to love you back to life."
– Joanna Weaver, best-selling author of Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World

"Embrace Grace isn’t for perfect, churchy women who have never made a mistake. It’s for women who’ve blown it and are willing to investigate a better way to live. Liz Curtis Higgs is vulnerable, authentic, honest, and compassionate. Embrace Grace provides answers, truth, and a map that will take you from shame and guilt to a hope-filled future."
–Carol Kent, author of When I Lay My Isaac Down

"Leave it to Liz Curtis Higgs–a master writer, storyteller and Bible teacher–to give us a book with a heavy hitting message wrapped in a cloak of warmth that melts even the coldest heart. Liz tells the story of grace, forgiveness, and restoration that every one of us–the wounded, the hurting, the seeking–needs to hear. This book must be read slowly and on bended knee, for each page is steeped with truth that will cause you to more passionately embrace the Father, embrace forgiveness, and Embrace Grace."
Priscilla Shirer, author of He Speaks to Me

"Like the fingers of an expert masseuse, Liz kneads away the knots of guilt, fear, and regret we all have. Embrace Grace speaks life-changing truth to our hurting, anxious souls in a uniquely winsome way."
– Dee Brestin, best-selling author of The Friendships of Women
