Woman, Thou Art Loosed! is an insightful book for women of all walks and seasons of life written by T. D. Jakes. Originally published in 1993, this particular book is published in 2016. Not a new message but still so very relevant to women today. Recognizing that women are often emotionally frail, bound by past experiences and hurts, and in need of healing and release in their spirits, Jakes shares spiritual insights into the healing of those wounds. Each of the 15 chapters is well supported by scripture and examples of women in the Bible and deals with different stages of life (single, married, young, older--he calls them 'winter women'--love it!) and a variety of emotional and mental issues (past hurts, guilt, abuse, abandonment). The author writes that there are three characters in each story, the person, the problem, and the prescription. Each story is different but the prescription is the same, understanding who you are in Jesus Christ...a daughter of Abraham, a survivor, a daughter of the King, loved and called by God. Change is not easy but recognizing the faithfulness of God and his desire to restore and nourish, gives strength to bless His name, redefine purposes, experience attitude readjustment and ultimately, to be freed of the past and become the woman of faith, pure and holy, strong in Him, that God has purposed for each of us. Well thought out, the book is easy to read and follow Bishop Jakes' thinking, a wonderful resource for all women, whether in need of a spiritual make-over or just a tune-up.
I received a copy of this book through The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.
