How to counter the lies that keep you from abundant living. Satan is the master deceiver, and his lies are endless. The lies Christian women believe are at the root of most of their struggles. "Man women live under a cloud of personal guilt and condemnation," says Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth. "Many are in bondage to their past. Others are gripped by fear of rejection and a longing for approval. Still others are emotional prisoners." In the best-selling Lies Women Believe, Nancy exposes these areas of deception most commonly believed by Christian women - lies about God, sin, priorities, marriage and family, emotions, and more. She then sheds light on how we can be delivered from bondage and set free to walk in God's grace, forgiveness, and abundant life. Nancy offers the most effective weapon to counter and overcome Satan's lies: God's truth!.… (more)

I have a hard time with what the author calls "truth" sometimes. If something is truly biblical, I will agree with her, but she should not call her own opinions "truths" that all women should follow in order to please God and "prove" they are true Christians. For example, one of her points is that

a true Christian mother should never limit how many children she has (i.e., using birth control). I disagree with this. The Bible doesn't say anywhere that to be godly you must have as many children as possible. It is fine for her to have that opinion, but she shouldn't act like that is God's will for every family.

(self-confidence), children dealing with emotions, and even circumstances.

Ever since Eve was deceived by the serpent in the garden of Eden, Satan knows that women are easily deceived. Now is the time to break through all those lies that Satan wants us to believe. WThe reader will learn how to love God, love themselves, their spouses; how to enjoy their marriage, even more, having the freedom to walk in the truth.
This is the updated version of the original "Lies Women Believe" So you ask why would I want an updated version? Well for starters, there has been some cultural changes that have occurred since the first edition in 2001. Social media being one of those. There are some sexual issues and themes that are addressed in this issue. Nancy has added a whole new chapter about sexuality and has made some other updated that were needed.

Nancy has taken the feedback from thousands of women and addressed all that mail, e-mail, and online reviews. She has used this feedback to clarify and to fine-tune her message and to help express it in a way that is truthful to scripture and relevant to readers in various life circumstances.

I personally like how she illustrates her points by writing sections though Eve's point of view. It's kind of fun to sneak a peek at Eve's journal and see what Eve may have thought and felt.

There is also a study guide that you can purchase to go alongside this book that you can use in a group or even do by yourself. Either way book alone or with the guide, this is a book that all women should read.

I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own.
