It is reported in the headlines, confessed in the pulpits, and hidden in the pews in churches around the world. The seduction of God’s people by the deceiver is a tale as old as the garden, but we are always surprised when it happens. We must realize that Satan is a lion on the prowl and we are his prey. Beth writes with a passion fueled by the Biblical warnings of the schemes of Satan’s seductive activity and the broken-hearted concern of a teacher who receives countless letters from repentant Christians limping on the road to finding restoration. Delivering dire warnings to Christians to safeguard themselves against Satan’s attacks, Beth also reveals how you can know if someone is vulnerable. Beth writes, We, Christ’s church, are in desperate need of developing His heart and mind in issues like these.” She fears that often God is far more merciful than the Body of Christ is with the deeply repentant and those desperate to find their way home. When Godly People Do Ungodly Things will be a guide to authentic repentance and restoration.

Beth Moore has emerged as a popular speaker and writer in Christian circles,
her Bible studies embraced by church groups across the country. Her latest
full-length book, When Godly People Do Ungodly Things: Finding Authentic
Restoration in the Age of Seduction, holds to her trademark conversational
writing style (including the overuse of italics and hyperbole). Its message
is disappointingly simplistic, choosing such easy targets as Internet
pornography as evidence for satanic seduction, and even using diagrams of
stick figures to prove her points. A New Voice in New Thought? Copyright
