Prolific Bible teacher and women’s ministry leader Moore (Get Out of That Pit) moves away from her characteristic dead-on expositions of scriptural principles in her newest; the topic is insecurity, and the content, she admits, is close to an autobiography. Moore, always transparent with her own personal struggles, is refreshingly so throughout this text. Readers will be chortling in laughter one moment and sucking air the next as Moore exposes the many faces of female insecurity. The author names and claims each one, then defuses every bit of power these nonsensical inner voices possess by countering their lies with God’s truth. Women, no matter what their age, battle against advertising’s siren call for unattainable physical perfection; the habit of making a man’s love the ultimate validation; and the worldly definition of success as money, power, and status. Moore uses personal essays, women’s true confessions, expressive prayers, and lots of commonsense suggestions to jar women out of their insecure rut. Readers will delve into this work and find themselves comfortably uncomfortable, and this is a very good thing. <source: Publishers Weekly>
Beth Moore is Beth Moore so I expected nothing more or nothing less from this book. However, I did secretly expect and hope that my insecurity to go away when I’m done reading this book. But really, who am I kidding?! If only it’s that easy. :-) It’s going to take time and effort and I’m pretty sure there will be no end to it.
It was a good book in terms of defining what insecurity really is and what aspects of my life it affects (I found out a lot of issues I go through is stemmed from insecurity!). Somehow, I knew the answer to my insecurity even before I read the book (not because I knew Beth Moore is a Christ follower but because it is the truth!) and God’s right in the middle of it. Thank God I don’t have to do it alone! :-)
