"Banished from Eden, wearing cloths of animal skins, her husband sore at her, and on her way to being the mother of the first murdered child--and the mother of his killer--Eve must have felt very low. Alone. Defeated. A failure. What must Eve have wanted most at that moment? What would you have wanted? She ached to do things over, to have done things right the first time." With these words, Nancy Leigh DeMoss exposses the heart of most women. We are like Eve. We have all experienced defeat, failure, circumstances out of control - many times from our own choices, many times not. And with these experiences comes the burden of guilt, shame and condemnation. But, as Nancy has found, and reveals to us, there is hope! There is One who waits to bear our burdens, heal our hearts, and release us from the fears that beset us on all sides. She exposes the lie that started all the way back in Eden, so that we may recognize its many expressions in our own lives, identifies the Deceiver and his methods, then introduces us to the power of the Truth, and the one who is Truth, as our means of freedom from bondage. Read by Lisa Helm. Abridged. 4 CDs. 5 hours.
The lies Christian women believe are at the root of their struggles. In Lies Women Believe, Nancy Leigh DeMoss exposes areas of deception common to many Christian women -- lies about God, sin, priorities, marriage and family, emotions, and more. She deals honestly with women's delusions and illusions and then gently leads them to the truth of God's word that leads to true freedom.
"A director of womens ministries and host of a Christian radio show offers a largely thoughtful program of fundamentalist Christian advice. Twenty-two issues are framed as lies and then presented as truths--issues like how to deal with temptation, adversity, loneliness, restlessness, physical and emotional abuse, and less than ideal clerical authority. The advice is grounded in the literal belief that all worthy direction comes from obedience to God and from those males entrusted with interpreting Gods Word. The authors teachings on truth, spiritual integrity, respect for the natural order, and self-respect are comprehensible enough. But her distrust of personal discernment and judgment will appeal to a limited audience."
