BernCaliforniaAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5We will find ourselves in the pit, straight talk about getting out!October 6, 2017BernCaliforniaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I had heard the name Beth Moore but had not really had an opportunity to work through any of her bible studies or read her books. When the opportunity to read her book came up, I looked forward to seeing for myself what she was encouraging her readers to do.
I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. First of all, I loved her candid conversational style of writing. Often, in the Christian arena there is so much "Christianese" in our language that many that are new in the faith struggle to understand what the author is trying to accomplish. On the other hand, books can also be so Bible light that the truth of what God's is calling us to is lost.
In Get Out of that Pit, Beth Moore speaks candidly to the reader about her own personal struggles and the struggles that many have shared with her coupled with the power of Christ and His word to rescue and redeem those that cry out to Him.
Along with her conversational style and scripture, Beth lays out plainly the ways that we may get into the pit. She identifies 3 ways we find ourselves in the pit: we're thrown in there, we slipped into the pit, and finally we willing jumped in. She does not judge the reader, rather she willingly admits that she has also been there along with us at different points.
However, she continues the book with giving the reader 3 steps to get out centered on God. In other words, she reminds us that we cannot get ourselves out of the pit on our own but by the grace of God and involve: Crying out, Confession, and Consent. As she walks the reader through Psalm 40 - she shares how we can in fact, get out of that pit.
I was encouraged to read this book filled with practical truth about the strength we have in Christ to live for Him.
debsMaineAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Get out of the Pit ~ Beth MooreSeptember 24, 2017debsMaineAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 0Beth has done it again!! For all Beth fans, she will not let you down with this book. This book talks about when you are down and can't seem to get away from your sadness. She teaches us how to reach out to God and work on ourselves and our faith to become out of the darkness and into the light. Each chapter covers subjects with bible backup and questions for you to work on. This is a book that you will need to take your time with. It is not a book that you will sit down and read from cover to cover. To get the most out of the book you will need to read, pray, think and journal to get the most out of the book.
This is a great book for anyone that is depressed or knows of someone going through depression. It is a self help book with putting God and your faith first.

Pilar ArsenecNew JerseyAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Practical DeliveranceSeptember 3, 2017Pilar ArsenecNew JerseyAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Get Out Of That Pit is exactly what the title says. This book will help you get out of whatever pit you find yourself in. Beth Moore discusses four different ways we find ourselves in pits, and biblical ways to get out of them.
This is the second book I've read by Beth Moore. The first one was Breaking Free, which was also good.
Beth Moore has a no-nonsense approach and spunky writing style. It's as if she is sitting with you over a cup of coffee. She is a good bible teacher and story teller. She describes her own mistakes with humor, transparency and humility. She understands what it's like to be stuck in a pit or valley, which is why she is passionate about helping others.
If you are going through a difficult time and find yourself stuck, Get Out Of That Pit will inspire, encourage and help you.

Kerri SweerisAllegan, MIAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent ReadAugust 30, 2017Kerri SweerisAllegan, MIAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Have you ever found yourself in a pit? Literally or figuratively; I suppose both are possible. I've never been in a literal pit, unless you count the time I backed Doug's truck into a ditch.... But that's a whole different post!
I have been in my share of emotional pits. We're not just talking down in the dumps, feeling sorry for myself pits. We're talking hopelessly, depressingly STUCK with no idea how to get out. Sometimes I don't know how I even got there, let alone how to get out.
Beth Moore is a Bible teacher and author of many books (really good ones at that!). I just re-read her book "Get out of that Pit" which was re-released for its 10th anniversary. I was reminded that there are are several ways to know that you're not just stuck in a rut, but that you are IN a pit.
Do you feel stuck? Just plain ol' stuck. Like you just can't get motivated? Then you might be in a pit. If you've ever been in a mud-hole or even a deep pile of snow, you KNOW what it's like to be stuck. I have literally pulled off a shoe walking through the mud. I'm sure as a kid I've lost many a boot to Michigan winters as well!
Do you feel like you've lost your vision? You know, "the thing" that used to get you out of bed every morning? Well, you might be in a pit.
So how did you and I get into our pits? Beth Moore tells us there are 3 ways to get into our pits:
First of all, you can get thrown in. Think of Joseph in the Bible. His brothers threw him into a literal pit and left him for dead! How can you or I get thrown in? Think of abuse as a child. Or maybe being abandoned by a spouse, leaving you a single parent. Maybe, like me, you've been diagnosed with an incurable disease.
Secondly, you can slide into a pit. Maybe you never really meant for that "friendship" with the opposite sex to go there...it was supposed to be just harmless flirting.
Third, you can jump right into your pit, Yup. Feet first, head first, whichever, you just jump. Think of David in the Bible. He saw Bathsheba, he lusted after her, and he slept with her, even thought he KNEW she was married. Then he had her husband murdered. Pretty big pit there if you ask me. Maybe you've never had an affair or killed anyone. Maybe you have; who am I to judge? You may also be a recovering addict; 10 years sober. And you decide to have just one drink to celebrate. To prove to yourself that you can do it. The next thing you know you're totally wasted and have just become a pit-dweller.
But just like most stories in the Bible, there is HOPE! Our God will not leave us in the pit if we ask for help.
"I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; He set my feet upon a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord." Psalm 40:1-3
Beloved, God loves you SO much He will do and/or allow *anything*, and I mean ANYTHING to get your attention, and get you back on the road to Him. He loves us with a love difficult to understand. And God does not want us living in a pit. But we have to ask for His help.
Are you in a pit? Do you want out? Beth Moore gives us the way out in her book "Get out of that Pit". The answer is really quite simple: Cry out to God. Look back at the passage of Scripture... God will hear your cry!
From the back cover: "It is Beth's stirring message of the sheer hope, utter deliverance...and complete and glorious freedom of God."
