Lies Women Believe: And the Truth That Sets Them Freeby Nancy Leigh Demoss
Synopses & Reviews
We are like Eve. We have all experienced defeats and failures, trouble and turmoil. We have all experienced a selfish heart, a shrewish spirit, anger, envy and bitterness. And we ache to do things over, to have lives of harmony and peace.
In her book, Lies Women Believe, author Nancy Leigh DeMoss exposes those areas of deception most commonly believed by Christian women:
-Lies about themselves: I should not have to live with unfulfilled longings.
-Lies about sin: I cannot walk in consistent victory over sin.
-Lies about their marriage: If I submit to my husband, I will be miserable.
-Lies about their emotions: I can't control my emotions.
-Lies about their circumstances: I just can't take any more.
Nancy Leigh DeMoss sheds light on how we can be delivered from bondage and set free to walk in God's grace, forgiveness, and abundant life. This book offers the most effective weapon to counter and overcome Satan's deceptions-God's truth.
Satan is the master deceiver, and his lies are endless. Nancy tackles many of the falsehoods that deceive Christian women with alarming frequency and severity. She confronts these lies with practical truths found in Scripture, helping women to face the realities of this life with freedom and true joy.
