Lies Women Believe Review

Book Review: 

Nancy Leigh DeMoss' Lies Women Believe: And the Truth that Sets Them Free explores the "soul-sickness" of our age: The bondage to all the lies our culture teaches women to believe. The foundation of all this bondage and struggle is deception. DeMoss believes that Christian women have been duped into believing the satan's lies. To help women confront his lies, DeMoss has identified the most prevalent strongholds of sin and categorized them according to a set of lies relate to that sin. Each chapter is dedicated to a specific "family" of lies.

Each chapter follows the same pattern: DeMoss explains the lie and offers proof (either through testimony or research statistics) that the lie is believed by many women and causes damage in their lives, which is followed by select scriptures to refute the lie, which is sprinkled with biblical encouragement and admonishments from DeMoss to repent and believe the truth. She places an emphasis on believing the gospel of God's grace shown to us in Jesus Christ.

In the end, though, DeMoss tends toward legalism and over-simplification in a way that undermines that Gospel.


I received a free copy of this book from the publishers in exchange for my honest review here.
