No matter how you got stuck in a pit and no matter how long you've been there, whether you deserve it or not, your Redeemer is waiting, and He promised that you can get out of that pit once and for all. Drawing from the text of Psalm 40 and her own time in the pit, author Beth Moore encourages readers that no matter what has come before, there is deliverance and healing in Christ and it's yours to claim.

What happens when we invite Gods Power into our pain
From her first breath of fresh air beyond the pit, it has never been enough for Beth Moore to be free. This author and teacher whos opened the riches of Scripture to millions has longed for you to be free as well. To know the Love and Presence that are better than lifeand the power of Gods Word that defies all darkness.
Her journey out of the pit has been heart-rending. But from this and the poetic expressions of Psalm 40 has come the reward: a new song for her soulgiven by her Savior and offered to you here, friend to friend. It is Beths most stirring message yet of the sheer hope, utter deliverance . . . and complete and glorious freedom of God:
I waited patiently for the Lord
He turned to me and heard my cry
He lifted me out of the slimy pit
He set my feet on a rock
He put a new song in my mouth
It is a story, a songa salvationthat you can know too.
Beth Moore is a writer and teacher of best-selling books and Bible studies whose public speaking engagements carry her all over the United States and the world. A dedicated wife, mother of two, and happy grandmother to one, Moore lives in Houston, Texas, where she leads Living Proof Ministries.
As the title implies, Beth Moore's personal growth book, Get Out Of That Pit: Straight Talk About God's Deliverance, urges her readers to do just that. Moore states that everyone, including herself, can be unwittingly drawn into a life of dwelling in his or her own problems, or pits. In a highly-effective way, Get Out Of That Pit employs both inspiration and instruction to help readers find the salvation from the pits where they might be living.
Using biblical examples of people in the pits, combined with illustrations from her own life and the lives of those she has loved and counseled, Moore gives her readers a look at the kinds of pits in which they might get trapped, how to avoid them, and how to get out if they are already trapped inside. As a teacher, public speaker, wife, and mother, Beth Moore has encountered many situations that she now uses for the educational benefit of her readers. Beth Moore's stylegentle honesty and encouragement through sharing previous triumphsmakes Get Out Of That Pit a compelling read, and separates it from the dozens of books on the same topic that already populate bookstore shelves.
Of particular interest is Moore's close study of when Joseph's brothers threw him into a pit (Genesis 17), mainly because Moore takes a well-known Bible illustration and draws her readers into a deeper examination of this tale. Whether you are a reader who has been pushed into a pit, one who has found yourself inside one suddenly, or one who has jumped in headfirst, Beth Moore provides the practical instruction to help you extract yourself from it. To break the chain of distraction, addiction, and destruction, Moore advises her readers to cry out, confess, and consent. Get Out Of That Pit then lists several real-life examples of people in the throes of each of these three steps.
The most refreshing aspect of Beth Moore's book is the genuine character of the author, which reverberates through the entire textthis author is a real person who obviously wants to use her personal struggles to help her readers. Also, this book includes reflection questions corresponding to each chapter of the book, and a whole week's worth of devotional materials. Moore's latest volume on personal growth is appropriate and recommended for anyone who feels stuck in a pit and could use some help getting out. Meg D. R. Tepfer, Christian Book Previews.com
