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.
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.

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."

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
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.
We don't need to agree with this book entirely to find it worth reading.
Maybe DeMoss got everything else in this book right, but I just want people to know that when I say DeMoss is deceived, I mean specifically in how she addresses women.
This study is more about Ms. DeMoss' opinions; however, she does present scripture as she presents "the lies women believe."
