Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Megaselling author Meyer (Approval Addiction; Battlefield of the Mind) turns her pointed pen to building confidence in women. She defines confidence as "all about being positive about what you can do—and not worrying over what you can't do." She quickly moves into describing God's view of women ("God never intended for women to be less than men in anyone's estimation") and what the Bible says about women in ministry, offering her interpretation of the Apostle Paul's controversial comments in 1 Corinthians. Meyer's quick jabs become less defined as she describes the seven secrets of the confident woman; rattles on about the Proverbs 31 woman; lists 10 women who overcame barriers to become leaders; and then describes 10 steps to female independence. The last seven chapters focus on how women can eliminate fear from their lives. As usual, Meyer presents a relentlessly upbeat message to her legion of eager readers: be confident, here's how, get going. It's a vital message to be sure, but discerning readers might prefer fewer platitudes and examples, less repetition and a bit more depth. (Sept. 5)

The Confident Woman is a great book for Christian women who feel a calling to do more in their lives (regardless of their age). Joyce leads you through claiming your confidence, becoming bold without being overbearing, and overcoming fear in order to succeed in life. In the beginning of the book she covers Adam vs. Eve issues and weaves the message that men and women are and should be partners not enemies. Keep your bible with you for this book as you may want to cross reference, although most biblical passages are included in The Confident Woman, some are only mentioned to be referenced.

Format: Hardcover
This is my second book by Joyce Meyer--my first was "Battlefields of the Mind," which I still use as a reference/text book! Joyce has a way of teaching God's Word that is practical and easy to apply to our every day life. "The Confident Woman" is another daily guide. But, what I liked most about this book is that it puts revolutionary feminism into a Godly context. Joyce is awesome! "The Confident Woman" is a book that has something for every woman--whether you see yourself as a liberated woman or whether you see yourself as oppressed by society and/or by men, your mind will be renewed by the Word that Joyce uses to minister God's love. In her chapter entitled "Setting The Record Straight," Joyce boldly states that: "I believe that Satan has methodicaly taken centuries to build wrong thinking about women into the minds of society. This wrong thinking has caused women to be mistreated, and in turn, has caused women to lack confidence." This book is a must read! Be blessed!

Excellent book. Gives good information and strategies to help women become grounded and increase their self-esteem and acquire godly self-confidence. I highly recommend this book to women who are struggling with self-identification and also for women who may not suffer from lack of self confidence.

Reading Joyce Meyer's books are so 'nutritional' for the soul. No matter where you are in life, when you sit down to read her words, you can feel the truth. She is very inspirational and powerful. After reading this one, I purchased another one of her books entitled; In Pursuit of Peace.

Not only is this one of the best books I've read, but it's one of those books that you want to reread, highlight and purchase for someone else.

Personally, I think Joyce is writing directly to me! Enjoy ~

Format: Hardcover
This book helped me regain self-confidence after I had been socially isolated because of a serious illness. With Great Mercy Joyce's approach is fresh, and she sites her own shortcomings as she writes. Regardless of what we've endured, we can be confident that God will bring us through it. Solid message from Joyce

This is one of the best books I've read in a long time. Joyce Meyers is one of my favorite authors now. No matter what situation you find yourself in, her books and this one in particular, will teach you a lesson to overcome and face, with faith, whatever is currently in your life. The Confident Woman made me think and gave me renewed strength to actually become a confident woman.

This was my first introduction to Joyce, even though I am a Christian woman. I'd never read any of her books or seen her television program "Enjoying Everyday Life." But now I'm looking forward to much more from her!

I believe Joyce truly has a gift for writing, teaching and preaching! She's honest, truthful, practical and bold in her message. If you hunger for God, and know you're not living the kind of life that you could be, you will be blessed by this book! It's inspirational and encouraging, filled with scripture, and a message of hope! Joyce's style is down to earth, clear, and applicable to today! She uses examples of women from all walks of life that choose to live courageously, and follow Jesus.

I plan to re-read this book again (later this year) and gain even more insight, as well as other Joyce Meyer books! She's really terrific!

Format: Hardcover
A good material piece for every women who wants to achieve great confidence in herself. This book will inspire you to take the next step in beliving in yourself. Joyce Meyer basically captured the true meaning of fear, and simply challenges us move on and do it with fear because we will never know what the outcome will be if you don't move forward to face the fear. Remarkable reading. Great holiday gift for that special female that you know could be ready for the next phase in her life, but have fear.
