Editorial Reviews


Nancy Leigh DeMoss, who is one of the most articulate Bible expositors in the Christian world today, has written a book that I hope will get to the top of the best-seller list.  It exposes the lies that imprison so many women and sets them free.  I highly recommend it.
-Charles Colson

The woman of today is bombarded and confused by so many falsehoods.  These messages may originate from painful childhood experiences or from media that emphasize beauty and glitz above all else.  Or perhaps from a culture that tells women their role as a wife and mother doesn't count nearly as much as a career.  Or the more selfish trend is that if her marriage doesn't make her happy, she owes it to herself to bail out.  In Lies Women Believe: And the Truth that Sets Them Free Nancy Leigh DeMoss exposes Satan as the source of these falsehoods and points women back to the truth only found in God's Word.  Whatever problem today's women may face--guilt, addictions, an unhappy marriage, desire for career over mothering children, troubled children, the list goes on--she reminds us that there is an answer, and it is found in God.  God is enough.
-Tim and Beverly LaHaye

For a quarter of a century, Nancy Leigh DeMoss has listened compassionately to heart-wrenching stories about the ways women in today's world are looking for meaning in life in all the wrong places.  Readers will find themselves in these stories. A careful reading of this compelling book, written by someone who knows and loves the Scriptures, will help women identify and break out of the many bondages--emotional, physical, and spiritual--that trap them.  It will also lead women to a new vision for their lives, and the profound sense of freedom that comes with the knowledge of God's redeeming love made known in Jesus Christ. Nancy's breathtaking book arrives on the American scene at a timely moment in history, when the populace is confused, desperately searching for meaning in life, and buying into anything that brings immediate gratification.  This liberating book will be a blessing to you."
-George and Kingsley Gallup

What a timely, God-initiated and God-endorsed book!  Nancy is a friend not only to us and to our family, but to thousands who have heard her speak and have known her personally.  This is a most timely and crucial contribution to all women.  Nancy deals honestly with the most pressing pain in women's lives and shows sensitively real illustrations and the truth that sets them free.  Without hesitation, we encourage every woman to carefully study and apply this wonderful and practical spiritual help--both hurting and bewildered women, as well as radiant and happy women who desire to help others.
-Henry and Marilyn Blackaby

Have you ever wished you had a trusted friend, a wise counselor, that you could go to for godly, profoundly biblical advice?  Someone you could go to who would help you tackle life's thorniest questions?  Nancy Leigh DeMoss may not be your closest friend, but she will provide you with the solid Psalm 1 counsel that your soul longs for.  On more than one occasion we've sought Nancy's advice and counsel.  She is a godly woman with a heart for God's people.  Compassionate and caring, I think you'll find that Nancy will stimulate you to love and good deeds in these pages.  Buy two of these books--one for yourself and one for your best friend!
-Dennis and Barbara Rainey

Finally we can stop walking around in a maze of unanswered questions.  The 'why's' have been silenced and the truth proclaimed!  Nancy penetrates the confusion of our day and helps us see through the deception that has plunged so many women into despair and frustration.  Then she gently leads us into the truth that is the only pathway to experience God's beautiful peace and restoration.
-P. Bunny Wilson

Today's women need to hear the truth, and I praise God for Nancy Leigh Demoss' incredible faith in His truth and her honesty about our weakness.  She refuses to compromise His Word for the world's sake.
-Heather Whitestone McCallum, Miss America 1995

From the Back Cover

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 marriageIf 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.

Format: Paperback
We don't need to agree with this book entirely to find it worth reading. Do NOT hesitate to buy it just because other reviewers found the book disagreeable. That may be precisely the reason why we should read it -- use it as a springboard for intelligent discussion! I found that many parts of the book were eye-opening and revelational, even if I personally remain undecided about some of DeMoss's opinions.

Many intelligent women may find themselves offended by DeMoss's conservative viewpoints, especially with regard to her stance against the use of birth control. As a single, professional woman, I, too, was at first taken aback by her statement that the highest calling for women was to be a wife and mother. ***However, DeMoss herself is a single woman and has no children of her own.*** If you read carefully, she later clarifies that it is the highest calling IF it is God's calling for your particular life, obviously. The apostle Paul said that his own personal view was that it was better to be single in order to be fully devoted to God.

Lies Women Believe helps uncover how everyone, including men, are subtly deceived by today's modern society. She inspects today's popular beliefs held by most American women and clearly shows how it deviates from the simple, undeniable truth as written in God's Word. A must-read! Great for small groups.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Let me begin by saying that there are some good points in this book, but it is so filled with misunderstanding of scripture, legalism, and false teaching that I cannot recommend it. First of all, the author has little or no qualifications to write this book with any authority: she is not a Bible scholar and even more ironic, she is not married and has zero experience on the subject.

Some lies that she promotes in the book:

--Women are inferior and more likely to sin than men. If you are a woman, don't work because you might hear some bad language or get tempted to cheat. Never mind that you husband probably faces this everyday.

--Women should submit to their husbands to the point of being a doormat, even if they are being abused. Outrageous! She needs to study the Greek and Hebrew words and she would find out that we are called to "mutually submit to one another" which she conveniently leaves out, as well as wives submit to your husbands. The meaning of submit used there is NOT the same as used for submitting to God. It is about mutual respect and accountability. A husband and wife are equal and in a partnership. If one person is allowing the other to act disrespectfully or wrongly--you are not being the helpmate you are supposed to be. I have seen numerous examples of women who believed this lie of being a doormat with tragic results for both husband and wife. It is not godly in any way, but women have been brainwashed for centuries and sadly, it still continues.

--That women should not use birth control and have as many babies as their body will pump out, regardless of the woman's health, ability to care for the children, or God's calling on her life. This teaching is so egregious I find myself in disbelief.

Format: Paperback
Let me say first that I'm a wife (married 15 months) and a Christian woman. I was given this book by a relative as a wedding gift, and because I respect her views, I went ahead and read through the book. I don't like to be negative, but this book is so dangerous to women that I felt compelled to show potential readers what you're getting into.

Perhaps her most horrific claim had to do with the situation of spousal abuse (a term which she limits to physical abuse; emotional abuse is apparently irrelevant):

"There are extreme situations where an obedient wife may need to remove herself and/or her children from proximity to her husband, if to remain in that setting would be to place themselves in physical danger. However, even in such a case, a woman can -- and must -- maintain an attitude of reverence for her husband's position; her goal is not to belittle or resist him as her husband but, ultimately, to see God restore him to obedience. If she provokes or worsens the situation through her attitudes, words, or behavior, she will interfere with what God wants to do in her husband's life and will not be free to claim God's protection and intervention on her behalf." (p.149)

DeMoss is saying that abused women should stay with their husbands in all but the most extreme cases, avoiding "belittling" the man who is actively harming her. Moreover, if she has any kind of negative attitude about the fact that she's being abused, then she "will not be free to claim God's protection." This dangerous doctrine means that not only should women continue to live in harmful situations, but they are encouraged to blame themselves for "provoking" that abuse.

Format: Paperback
This book outlined the lies that many women get caught up in. I felt that there were some good things about this book. We do need to take responsibility for our actions, not remain a victim, and to realize that sin is sin and that God can forgive it all. Surprisingly, the submission chapter was done well, explaining the myths of submission and how a woman in an abusive situation should get out.

But there were many things I didn't like in this book. First, the author took a patronizing, critical, judging tone towards women. She seemed to like to blame women for a lot of problems, without recognizing the role that men often play in those problems.

I was deeply offended about what she had to say about how "a career is more fulfilling than being a wife and mother". I do agree with that statement. But she uses that statement to imply that the only place for the woman is in the home. She blames working women ("in part") for affairs, women being on welfare (I thought working took women OFF welfare), elderly parent being in nursing homes, divorce, single motherhood, teen violence, etc. She doesn't acknowledge other factors going into those things. I mean, men and women have had affairs since the beginning of time. Elderly parents are in nursing homes because they require 24/7 care, not because of the women working (don't sons or SAHM's put their parents in nursing homes?) I work outside the homes, yet, I do have meals with my family and they aren't all fast food or frozen. As far as women gaining financial independence to free them to leave their husbands...I don't know of many women who work for that purpose. But isn't it OK for each woman to have her own money in cases of abuse, addiction, or when the man leaves them for someone else?
