Many are familiar with the biblical character known as Jezebel. Her name has become something of a tag used to describe a woman deemed to be of a shameless or immoral background.

In reality, the woman was a malignant narcissist. Her actions have become a blueprint for narcissism and include terms we recognize today, such as – smear campaigns, character assassination, gaslighting, and so on.

In Living with Jezebel, you can now follow the life of this scandalous yet fascinating character from the time she’s introduced to us as King Ahab’s wife until the time she is killed about 30 years later – thrown from a window by her own retinue.

With a direct connection to modern day life, you can see how the life of Jezebel can impact on our own lives when we allow people to enter and cause chaos. These are people who love no one and believe everyone is disposable. This is the person who uses everyone, expects 100% compliance, and would have no problem killing you if she thought she could get away with it.

Suitable for readers who have little understanding of the Bible or for Bible students, Living with Jezebel also serves as an in-depth character study that shows ways she uses to operate within the church and why she can’t be permitted to teach.
