Sophia5 Stars Out Of 5November 22, 2004SophiaExcellent book! I highly recommend EVERY woman to read it. It will change your life. What I greatly appreciated about this book was her honesty and compassion. Even if you do not believe the lies, this book will help you explain the truth to others.
Teri King1 Stars Out Of 5October 17, 2004Teri KingThe thing Ive noticed about DeMoss is that she starts outside the Scripture from a premise. Ive been teaching how to study the Bible for years emphasizing contextual reading and gleaning FROM the Scriptures, thus when someone does what she does it is glaringly obvious to me. One should not START from any approach, but should seek to extract the points from the Scriptures without adding into Scripture.For instance take the words Adam was not deceived, Eve was deceived and thus fell (versus knowingly walked) into transgression. Because DeMoss is coming from a preconceived set of patriarchal beliefs (as many have done throughout history actually) she changes this to meaning that women are easily deceived and more prone to deception. In order to do that she has to change words and add words: Eve becomes women, and easily and more prone are added in. The actual verse does not address women in general being deceived, yet this is what she uses and patriarchal teaching uses to tell women they need male guidance and are unfit to control their own lives, determine truth... Etc. etc. get the picture. And this view of woman is the primary foundation for all her views of woman.And curiously she does not conclude her own approach by applying the same method to the first part and say that men are more prone to deliberately choose wickedness. This then reveals her (and the patriarchal) agenda is not seeking the truth but proving a biased premise by reading it into Scripture rather than gleaning truth from Scripture.
Julie Gadbury5 Stars Out Of 5November 19, 2003Julie GadburyLies Women Believe is a challenging book. Ms. DeMoss does not give her readers modern day feminism, but the truth. This book is filled with scriptures to illustrate each truth. God wants us to have a relationship with him, yet if we are deceived by who He is and the design He has for women our walk with Him is incomplete. I highly recommend this book for those who are searching for a deeper relationship with our Heavenly Father.
Michelle Hammes5 Stars Out Of 5October 4, 2002Michelle HammesMrs. DeMoss writes an excellent book directly to the women of the Christian faith. She lets us see the lies as they are with no sugar coating and then teaches us to find the Truth to break free in Christ Jesus. If you want to deepen your faith and walk this is the book for you.
