Ava5 Stars Out Of 5Delivering Women standsApril 20, 2015AvaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Very good book. What a pleasure it was to read a book that puts so much weight on scripture. Scripture was supported by scripture. The verses were accurate and relevant. If anything, the author loaded this book with too much scripture. I often felt that she made her points abundantly clear and then she threw more scripture at me. lol
I learned a lot from this book and strongly recommend it to anyone that has ever asked, "What does God want for me as a woman?" It proved to be a wealth of information on this focused topic. I have no doubt that men would gain from reading it too. It was thorough, even exhaustive in it's research. I'm all about the facts and I felt the author did exactly that, she presented the facts.
Nadine5 Stars Out Of 5Delivering Women from the Snares of DeathFebruary 28, 2015NadineQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I thought this book was awesome! It was so full of scripture, and kept pointing the reader to the Bible. I don't usually write reviews, but after I read the first one here, I thought I should speak up for this book and its author.
None of Ms. Coleman's scripture verses were misquoted. The two references given in the other review were simple editing oversights. The verse was quoted exactly how it appears in the Bible, but the reference was mistaken (saying 6b-7 instead of just 7, on pg. 98.) Also, the other review says that Ms. Coleman twisted scripture, but no examples were given because there are none! The problem is that readers twist scripture when they don't like what it says.
The example given about page 134, where Ms. Coleman supposedly "added" to scripture, doesn't exist.
Ms. Coleman's book is scholarly. Some paragraphs I had to read several times, because I agree that she writes in an academic way. It took me a few times to absorb the scripture, but I believe that this is a failing on my part, since I am less familiar with the Bible than she is. I don't think that the style of someone's writing justifies a bashing. Sure, if she purposely misquoted scripture to make a point, there would be a problem, but I didn't find that to be true at all.
I don't think that Mr. Coleman sounded prideful, but I do think that he's proud of his wife. If he was so arrogant, why did he write, "I believe she will heap more treasure at the feet of our Lord than I will" (p. x)? I would like to see more Christian husbands supporting their wives this way.
The point is, none of us are perfect, so I don't think it's fair to bash Ms. Coleman for saying that even though she makes mistakes, she did her best. She said she made most of the mistakes she listed, and wanted to share her experience with us so that we could avoid making the same mistakes. In my book, that qualifies her to teach me.
Also, the other reviewer was offended at Ms. Coleman's epilogue, which was an amazing scriptural exegesis of 2 Corinthians 12. I have never heard godly sorrow and worldly sorrow explained that way before, and it made perfect sense! Ms. Coleman teaches that wise Christians receive correction without getting offended. If they get offended every time, how can they learn? I admit that a few times, I felt upset by what Ms. Coleman wrote. But after I prayed about it and read the verses she suggested, I knew that I was being prideful. The truth is that the Bible is right, and it convicts us when we are wrong, which I was! I used those uncomfortable moments to grow spiritually, and I have Ms. Coleman's book to thank for that. She warned the reader right from the beginning that her book would convict them. She said, "I apologize in advance". Then she said the conviction would help change our hearts for the better, so she said, "I rejoice with you in advance" (p. xii). That is exactly what happened to me when I read the book!
I am happy to say that I am rejoicing with her right now because of what God has done for me through her.
There's one more thing I want to say. There are too many examples of Christian women who are worldly and want to keep sinning so much that they bash the women who are trying hard to be godlier. Those who truly love the Lord want to do what He says. Ms. Coleman teaches this in her book because that is what the Bible says! Praise the Lord for her! Godly women like Ms. Coleman don't find excuses for their sin, and they don't bash other women unfairly. They try to be better people so that their Father in heaven is glorified. So, if you want to keep making excuses for your sin, I suggest that you do not read Ms. Coleman's book. But if you want to improve your relationship with God, read it!
Anonymous1 Stars Out Of 5"Delivering Women from the Snares of Death"October 10, 2014AnonymousQuality: 3Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1There were a lot of things in this book that were either Biblically wrong or that I didn't like, so I am only going to mention some of them.
She used two different Bibles throughout her book. They were the LXX (Septuagint) and the KJ (King James) versions. I think it would have been a little easier to read had the author stuck with one Bible.
This book is poorly written. I noticed two misquoted verses. One on pg. 98 and the other on pg. 134. There were numerous times that I couldn't understand her point or make sense of what she was trying to say because she either didn't explain herself, expected you to believe her without any Biblical proof (if she did give proof, she was twisting scripture), or her explanation didn't make sense. Her longwinded writing style made it difficult and sometimes confusing to read this book.
Her husband, Peter, wrote the Forward. He came off as prideful and arrogant. I thought he was trying too hard to convince me that his wife had the authority to write this book. He believes she knows Gods will because she reads the Bible. He said, "I have every confidence that if tested faithfully against the Word, this book will stand." While reading, I quickly realized this book didn't stand against the Word of God.
One of the most alarming things in this book was on pg. xv of the Introduction where she said,"If I am in error, do not choose to believe me. Choose to believe the Bible." She shouldn't have published this book if something could be Biblically wrong. She admitted she was still learning on pg. xvii.
Her entire book is based off of a six-point list she came up with, which was originally nineteen-points (pg. xvii). They are foolish, stubborn, clamorous, wanton, idle, and usurping. She claims these are examples of the works of the flesh (she quotes Gal. 5:19a) and that "Not one of them, if left unchecked, leads to eternal life (Gal. 5:21b)." She then emphasizes that they must be purged and quotes 2 Tim. 2:21b. Though she admits we are already purged from sin, and without sin, if we are in Christ on pg. 164.
She added to verse John 13:4 by saying Jesus tied His robe into pants (pg. 134).
The last, and probably the most disturbing, thing in the book was on pgs. 172, 173 of the Epilogue in which she basically insinuates that if you reacted with defiance or self-justification upon reading her warnings, you probably don't belong to the Lord. I was stunned when she said, "Did you mock, dismiss, or disdain the messages herein, me, the messenger, or God, the examiner of your heart?" I thought it was pretty arrogant of her to claim to be a messenger considering she admitted she is still learning. She also mentions that she'd love to meet and "give you a big hug", and that "You may not know it yet, but you really need one!"
I would strongly suggest not to give this book to anyone; especially someone that is newly saved or easily deceived.

Tell us a little about yourself. Paige Coleman was knee-deep in Anthropological field work when a Toronto Police Officer walked into her life and taught her the gospel of Jesus Christ. Despite her efforts to prove his religion wrong, his knowledge and higher understanding on the subject prevailed, and she became a believer.
Abandoning her Anthropology career despite being a PhD shoe-in, she chose instead to earn a Bachelor of Christian Education from Redeemer University College and became a schoolteacher in North York, Ontario. She married the man who brought her to Christ and soon left her job to become a full-time homeschooling mother to their two sons.
Paige and her husband believe that the devices of feminism and modern secular humanism have robbed Christian women of the joy and glory that is the promised inheritance of Biblical living. Various Christian authors, whose buy-in to feminism has nullified their good work in Christ, have left many bereft of the true happiness and fulfillment that can only come from obedience to Gods Word.
With this in mind, it is Paiges most sincere desire to see women take back the freedom that is theirs in Christ, to defy the seducing spirits of this world, and to embrace the soul prosperity that God provides to those who love Him enough to deny their own will and choose to do His will.
Paige and her husband raise their boys in the beautiful, rolling Caledon hills of Southern Ontario. They hunt, they fish, they hike, and they ride. They praise the Lord daily for saving their souls from death, their eyes from tears, and their feet from falling.
What was your motivation behind this project? The torrents of ungodliness in the women around me who claimed to be Christian but didn't follow Christ troubled me exceedingly (Ps. 18:4). Christian marriages were in shambles, joyless, or falling apart. Christian women complained about their husbands, bashed their husbands, or ordered them around. They dictated in the home, often using their strong emotions to do so. They dressed like men, talked like men, and aspired to hold positions of authority like men. Their children were being left to themselves as their mothers pursued careers outside the home not out of necessity, but out of a need to gain material wealth and prestige. In a word, my heart was broken over how far women of the church had strayed from the Word and will of God.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Since I began writing this book, I prayed for one woman, unknown to me, whose life would be changed by it. I prayed that it would lead her to confront her sin before a holy and just God, repent of it, and be delivered. I want every reader to be that woman just like I was once that woman.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? The process of writing this book taught me first that the Bible interprets itself and that all the answers we need are within its pages. Second, without Jesus Christ, we can do nothing (John 15:5). Third, it is God who works in us both to will and to do of His good pleasure (Phil. 2:13). So at the end of the day, any and all glory belongs wholly to God. I love the freedom and knowledge that this truth lends itself to. There is nothing more fulfilling than to meditate on God's Word day and night!
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? God is my number One influence, my Saviour, Master, Creator, Counselor, Father, and Friend. My husband is my saviour with a little "s". He led me to Christ. He inspires me, encourages me, teaches me, and loves me. Other authors who have shown me a beautiful and honest picture of Biblical womanhood, whose work I admire, are Teri Maxwell and Debi Pearl.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Just this: If you want to have a prospered soul, to be blessed, joyful, and fulfilled, read the Bible and do what it says!
