    One thought on “Breaking Free”

    1. An insightful study in the book of Isaiah. I fully expected God to reveal more of Himself as I gave my attention to Him but did not expect to "see" so much more of myself. While the process is painstaking it's also a relief and helpful in knowing what obstacles are on the path of my Christian walk. Gained a lot of insight into areas that I need to surrender and the model for how to do that. Loved this study!

    2. Where I live it is possible to ask women if they've had their BM for the day and they understand it to mean Beth Moore. I read this book as part of a womens' study at a church I used to attend, at a time when Beth Moore was just beginning to be the bee's knees. Her writing is hardly revolutionary, but since the christian sub-culture is behind on almost everything, she was considered to be a new voice. This particular book was about breaking free from things that have held you back from living th [...]

    3. Holy Toledo. In going through a year's counseling and really watching God peel of the layers of stuckness from my life a few years back, I went into this Bible study with 2 things stacked against it:1) I thought I was going to struggle through Beth Moore as an author (I was judging a book by it's cover - or an author by their reputation in this case - and just didn't think she was going to be an author that I would easily hear from)2) I went into it knowing I would learn things & seeking God [...]

    4. This book helped me learn what I needed to learn of Gods love and grace and how to recognize and then to let go of what kept me prisoner. A must read in my opinion for everyone who has junk in their life that they carry guilt and or are ashamed for others to know and have regrets or living with consequences that hurt. Get it, read it, study it, do it - get free :)

    5. Summary:I have read and heard Beth Moore mention Breaking Free, "had been one of the most difficult books" she'd written. It is difficult because of her own painful memories of abuse.Breaking Free's main theme is liberty in Christ Jesus. Liberty from strongholds and oppression, specifically directed at those who have been victimized through sexual abuse.Breaking Free's main focal passage from the Bible---The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good n [...]

    6. Reading this for the second timee woman at our church are doing the in-depth Bible study of this topic, but I am doing the less-intense version since Baby #3 is due this month.Finallyd I do mean FINALLY I finished this book. It is probably a much better study than it is a book, but I enjoyed it and was challenged, so it was definitely worth the time I spent reading itwhich was at a snail's pace, I assure you. The point of the book--that you can be saved and still be living in bondage--is all too [...]

    7. Amazing that Beth Moore can write a book on four lines of scripture, Isaiah 61:1-4. I have memorized this passage and it will forever be close to my heart. Overcoming a stronghold is powerful. Coming face to face with it may be hard, but once you face it and give it to God.well, you can probably write a book :-) I love Beth Moore and her candid speaking of how she has (and still is) overcome her obstacles. I learned my love for Bible Study from Beth Moore. She makes it a fun adventure.

    8. Moore starts the book off with a challenge…morizing the word of God. That in its self gets my mind rolling with a slight tinge of anxiousness. Moore emphasizes verses from Isaiah which help one’s mind to “break free” from the stronghold of idols, pride, legalism, prayerlessness, and unbelief and to make “Him to become God alone to you with a powerful story to tell”. Many self examples are used to paint the picture of overcoming these strongholds. The use of Hebrew/Greek words and def [...]

    9. Once upon a time, the clouds parted to reveal a single beam of sunlight that hit nothing but Amytiger as she learned this concept of pro-con charts. In the background, a church choir, for no apparent reason, sung "Ohhhhhhh." A single tear ran down her cheek at the beauty of this concept of pro-con charts.Slightly exaggerated from how I first found out there were pro/con charts (actually, when I was in the sixth grade a fellow student explained it to me, but that's not as fun

    10. A Christian is held captive by anything that hinders the abundant and effective Spirit-filled life God planned for her. Breaking Free proves God's words in Galatians 5:1, "It is for freedom that Christ has se us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery." This Bible Study's themes come from the book of Isaiah. A must read for all Christian women!

    11. Another awesome bible study by Beth Moore! Dig deep into hidden area's within your life where God is seeking to turn trash into beautiful treasures. Surrendering is key to growth as a Christian & despite the pain involved, it's quite necessary. Very empowering!

    12. One of the most powerfully moving Bible Studies I've ever undertaken. Although some scoff at her fill-in-the blank methods, the content was deeply thought provoking and emotionally stirring. I came away changed and healed after participating in this study!

    13. I have never gotten so much from Isaiah before. Beth Moore is amazing at putting together modern examples of captivity and using Biblical truths to set us free.

    14. Went through this for a women's bible study. I think I liked the bible study and the women in it more than the actual book.

    15. This book was good enough that I read it twice because I didn't want to forget the important and helpful information Moore reveals. So glad I found this read.

    16. The women's study group that I am a part of at my church started studying this book last fall. Beth Moore is one of the few people who can write such a lengthy book on four lines of scripture, Isaiah 61:1-4. The first section is a brief historical overview of the kings of Israel and the different captivities of the Israelites. Then Ms. Moore leads you through a study about the obstacles that keep us from knowing God as we should and summarizes some of the benefits of knowing God more deeply. The [...]

    17. I definitely prefer Beth Moore studies in a group with discussion, but there were a number of things that jumped out at me from this book. First, the five benefits: 1. To know God & believe Him; 2. To glorify God; 3. To find satisfaction in God; 4. To experience God's peace; and 5. To enjoy God's presence. I happened to (or perhaps was prompted to) read Chapter 34 about rebellion and discipline just after discussing the rebellion and lack of discipline of a young child. I was thinking how co [...]

    19. A 2.5 star review.I've only ever heard good things about Beth Moore's books, so it was with high expectations that I approached this book. Unfortunately it couldn't live up to my expectations. I found her main points interesting and relevant, but unfortunately her examples and anecdotes were much too vague for me to be able to draw any sorts of parallels to my own life. Her reasoning was not to lock the reader into thinking those were the only situations relevant, but unfortunately it didn't wor [...]

    20. I read this book in preparation for the Summer Book Club at our church. Three books for the summer - read (one each) per a particular month, meet to discuss it, move on to the next month's selection. Frankly, this is the first Beth Moore book I've ever read, and I couldn't exactly say why, except perhaps that I'd seen her on TV before, and she never really seemed to "speak" to me. After reading this book…I'm still not entirely sure she speaks to me, but I do know I want to reread the book - sl [...]

    21. It took me two months to read this book. But not because it was bad or hard to read but because it was so deep and so heart provoking that I could only do a few chapters at a time and then I had to stop and chew for awhile. This was a good good read. But more than that it was a good, no great, unpacking of what true liberty in Christ is. Beth Moore did a thorough job of helping the reader understand what binds and what can and does free. Her writing is easy to read but not simple to digest. She [...]

    22. This book is what you want to put into it. If you just want to skim the surface or go to a nice women's gathering, it might be kind of intense causing you to tune out. If you want to dig deep into God's Word, this might not be "inductive Bible study" enough for you, causing disappointment. Beth Moore is a little intense for my California-ness, but every time she seems to be over the top, she says something so true, it stops me cold.Breaking Free is part Bible study and part commentary/book. It h [...]

    23. I have enjoyed many of Beth Moore's Bible studies but this is the first time I have read one of her books based on one of her studies. I thought it was well written and I really liked that it included Bible memory work. I keep a notebook full of quotes I want to remember and I pulled quite a few from this book. Her testimony is full of hard things and she is not afraid to share her struggles which I think makes her very easy to relate to. I found this book very encouraging and I would recommend [...]

    24. Awesome. Christ has won the victory and we truly can live in liberty through Him! Beth is amazing. This book was so Bible-focused (the book of Isaiah) and so God centered. Though she could have made it all about her own journey to freedom, she continually points the reader away from herself and onto the Lord. That is why He has blessed her ministry so much. It is amazing to me that even Christians who have the assurance of salvation through Christ, can still get so easily caught up in lies/bonda [...]

    25. If your willing to look into your ownself.d allow truth of God's word to replace the lies you believed, to trust God with your past as well as your future then this is the book for you. This is an intense study It's a book you just can't "read" through. There are applications, memorizing, and the willinginess to let go of yourself ( die to yourself) And let God rule. There was a lot of weeping for me.d this was needed but Joy was replaced. REad this book slowly - don't try to hurry with it You w [...]

    26. Truly the best study I've ever gone through that led me to better understanding myself, my hinderances to God, and a way to clear the path back to a more whole relationship with Him. This study digs deep, uncovers past hurt, as well as areas in my life I didn't even realize were affecting my relationship with God until I read more about it. I recommend this book to everyone, male or female, young or old. It caused me to grow deeper in my relationship with God, and has given me a new awareness of [...]

    27. I read this book in treadmill chunksterally. God must have known that He could have my full concentration while on the treadmill because every time I tried to read a chapter of Breaking Free while not on the treadmill--I quickly became bored and couldn't focus on the content. On the treadmill, however, I had to figure out how to get sweaty hands to highlight what resonated with me and I wanted to remember for later. Thank you for the gift of this book and the added benefit of exercising while be [...]

    28. I used the kindle book along with the audible for times when I couldn't actually sit and read. It took me a while to get used to the voice, but once I did I really enjoyed the book. It is very insightful and focuses on relationship with God vs legalism or knowledge of Him. I was once a captive, then was free, but somehow slipped back into captivity and this book basically emphasized what I already know I need to do. I would recommend this book to anyone.
