Item description for Believing God-Hc by beth moore...
Overview "Believing God" is the tradebook adaptation of the innovative, first-of-its-kind, Internet-based, interactive Bible study of the same name. Join bestselling author and Bible teacher Beth Moore in her latest offering as she explores what it means to know and truly believe God, not just to believe "in" him.
Publishers Description "Is it working? Your belief system, that is. Is it really working? God's intention all along has been for the believer's life to work. From divine perspective toward terrestrial turf, God meant for his children to succeed. . .Are our Christian lives successful? Are they achieving and experiencing what Scripture said they would? In a recent sermon my son-in-law preached, Curt told us the only way we were going to impact the world and the next generation is to prove that our faith in Christ is real and that it works. For countless Christians I'm convinced it's real. My concern is whether or not we have the fruit to suggest it works."--Beth Moore; "Believing God"
From Publishers Weekly Best-selling author and Bible teacher Moore, staunch Texan that she is, uses
all her homespun charm and folksy anecdotes to convince Christian followers to
throw off their characteristic unbelief and start "believing God." Moore is
bent on proclaiming a message of renewal and spiritual combativeness against
the defeatism so common in today's churches. With her typical can-do style,
she energetically espouses that the main reason God has kept his believers on
earth after their conversions is so they might "succeed" in the here and now.
Why then, are so many Christians living lives of mediocrity? Quoting Hebrews
3: 19, Moore says the primary reason is "unbelief." She uses the biblical
Joshua's story of faith, belief and courage to admonish contemporary
Christians. Moore also presents a five-point system to stimulate the
weak-kneed to victory, encouraging readers to speak the following statements
aloud throughout the day: "God is who He says He is. God can do what He says
He can do. I am who God says I am. I can do all things through Christ. God's
Word is alive and active in me." Bible study enthusiasts will flock to this
newest offering from Moore, a popular author with a sterling reputation. But
while biblically accurate, much of the book is wordy and repetitive. A little
restraint might have given this garrulous resource the zing it now lacks.

More About beth moore
Beth Moore was born on an Army base in Green Bay, Wisconsin, during what her father describes as the worst thunderstorm the city had seen in five years. He affectionately says the Lord brought her into the world with a drum roll. The fourth child of a retired Army major and a homemaker, Beth was raised in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. Her father managed the local cinema where each of her four siblings had a role to play. Beth’s job was to hand out samples of popcorn and soda. Growing up in the theater had its perks. Sometimes Beth would be allowed to slip into a movie and take with her a pickle bag full of popcorn and a Dixie cup of Coke.
There in a theater chair, wide-eyed and full of Coke, Beth began a lifelong love for stories. She loved to tell them, write them, and hear them. But the story that captured her heart and consumed her life was not told in a movie theater. It was told in Sunday School-the story of Jesus-a Savior who loved children thought she was special. A seed was planted in her young heart that would grow to mark her life with a passionate love for Christ.
At 18 Beth sensed God’s call to work for Him. Although she couldn’t imagine what that would mean, she made it her goal to say yes to whatever He asked. Beth graduated from Southwest Texas State University with a degree in political science. She later received an honorary in humanities from Howard Payne University. She married Keith in 1978, and now daughters Amanda and Melissa have joined the family. As a young wife and mother, Beth began speaking at luncheons and retreats, Mother’s Day Out, and teaching Christian aerobics.
Beth took a Bible doctrine class at her church taught by Buddy Walters, a former college football player who taught the Scriptures with tears streaming down his cheeks. She fervently prayed for such a passion for God’s Word. It was Buddy who first taught Beth, along with Keith, how to study the Bible.
Beth founded Living Proof Ministries in 1994 to teach women how to love and live on God’s Word. She has written numerous books and Bible studies, including Breaking Free, Believing God-Hc, and The Patriarchs: Encountering the God of Abraham, Issac & Jacob, Leader's Kit, read by women of all ages, races, and denominations. American missionaries and expatriates have taken Beth’s Bible study groups up all over the world. Living Proof Live conferences are in all 50 states; attended by more than 658,000 women. Ever the storyteller, Beth is known to pepper her teaching with stories and poems written from the perspective of pertinent characters. She communicates with great energy, passion, humor, warmth, and grace. Beth attends Houston’s First Baptist Church, where she hosts an interdenominational Tuesday-night Bible study for women in her city.

boring Jan 4, 2007
Beth Moore should have read this and recorded it herslef! It was possibly the most boring thing I have ever tried to listen to. I was so excited and oh so disappointed. I will not buy any audio of hers again, unless it is in her voice! She is amazing but the reader did not come close to capturing her essence.
