Format: Hardcover
I am continually amazed at the poor quality of the PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY reviews that Amazon provides for us as we shop for books. There always seem to be a few barbs thrown at any sincerely Christian author, causing me to question the motives and credibility of PW. In the case of Beth Moore's book, one of the sour comments made by the PW reviewer was that this book lacks "zing." Perhaps the reviewer confused this book with their own writing, because Beth Moore brings her usual stellar style to this book. And what Beth Moore has captured here in the substance of her book is the fundamental difference between believing that there is a God (something that even Satan believes) and actually *believing* God. Such belief, which produces tangible action, presupposes that there is a relationship between us and God, and that communication proceeds out of that relationship. This book will inspire the reader to draw closer to God...to get to know Him and His voice better. Moore also invites the reader to live a life of adventure, faith, and meaning, by knowing and following One in Whom we can trust. It's another winning work from Moore; a bracing read filled with great wisdom that, if heeded, will result in many benefits for the reader and for the ones the reader touches in their daily lives.

Format: Paperback
This study showed me spiritual depths and possibilities unknown to me before. I found this Bible study incredibly engrossing, revealing and uplifting; it takes you on an odyssey to reveal, learn and internalize (i.e. live) what the Holy Spirit is really all about. In concrete terms, what is It, when do you get It, and what does it mean to "live in the Spirit"? Exactly how is the Holy Spirit changing the lives of believers? Beth Moore digs deep into the original languages of the Old and New Testaments to show us what the writings of the Bible truly say regarding the fruit of the Spirit as described by Paul and others in the context of Galations 5:22-23 and related Biblical text. Love, patience, kindness, gentleness...our everyday definitions of these words barely scratch the surface of what God is truly saying. Worth the effort.

Format: Hardcover
We all claim to believe in God, but how often do we actually believe God? Do we take his words to heart, believe in His promises to us, and His ability to make miracles happen? Beth Moore, the director of Living Proof Ministries in Texas, uses the biblical story of the Israelites wandering in the desert for forty years searching for the promised land as a metaphor for our own lives. The goal of "Believing God" is "to encourage any Christian who will listen to move to his or her personalized place of divine promise and to flourish." Moore does not define this "promised land" as a life of ease or wealth, but rather as the place where we fulfill the destiny God put us here to accomplish. As we cooperate with God and God's plan for us, our lives take on greater meaning and we achieve an inner peace.

Moore encourages everyone to make a five statement pledge of faith: "1) God is who He says He is, 2) God can do what He says He can do, 3) I am who God says I am, 4) I can do all things through Christ, and 5) God's Word is alive and active in me." Several of the chapters of "Believing God" are dedicated to exploring each of these statements in greater detail. All five are powerful and have incredible ramifications for our lives, but perhaps the most life-changing statement is "I am who God says I am." As Moore states, "I tend to want to rewrite it, 'I strive to be who God says I am.' Nope. That's not what the Word says. It says I'm already who God says I am." And so, who are we? In Ephesians 1:3-8, we discover that we are "blessed, chosen, adopted, favored, redeemed and forgiven." Moore also maintains that God tends to purposely put us in situations that force us to face our insecurities because God wants to weed them out of us.

Format: Paperback
I begame a Beth Moore groupie with her first Bible Study on the Old Testiment Tabernacle and have followed her with each successive study that she has written. I've also traveled to see her speak, and gone to a similcast or two. That's the kind of lady she is. If you read her, you'll love her too, and be trying your best to keep up with her.

This study did not, at the time it was released, have videos to accompany it, so I consequently passed it over and moved on to the next one. I think it's been more than a year now that Beth finally put videos to this study and made it available as an online study. I completed it last year. It is excellent, as is all her stuff.

I recommend it HIGHLY for the working woman, like me, who hardly has the time to get the laundry done or bills paid on time. You can do each lesson at whatever pace you want and when you have finally completed it then you can log on and watch the video. It took me about 8 months to complete this 10-week study at my own pace. Although I missed the fellowship of the ladies in sharing our stories and meeting in person, it was still very rewarding to have spent the time in God's word. I still benefited from THAT immensely. ( To sign up for the online study go to: [...])

You can't do a Beth Moore study without growing closer to Jesus and wanting to have the relationship with HIM that Beth has with HIM. She actually has two available online, this one and BELIEVING GOD.

God bless!
