Essential Reading for All Christian Women Mar 24, 2010
"The New Spirit-Controlled Woman" is one of the most important books any Christian woman should ever read. It explores all the intricacies of four basic temperaments which include:
The Melancholy The Phlegmatic The Sanguine The Choleric
Most women have a dominant temperament and a secondary temperament. So you might end up being a Mel/Phleg or a Chlor/San. There are twelve possibilities. Each combination has a variety of strengths and weaknesses.
The goal of this book is to show you how to become more loving, joyful, peaceful, patient, kind, good, faithful and gentle. Wouldn't it be nice if you could then eradicate bitterness, wrath, fear, guilt, jealousy, selfishness, anger and hostility? This is possible if you are open to having God change your life through the working of the Holy Spirit.
While this book is mostly about temperaments there are some very helpful chapters on pertinent subjects which include:
Singleness is Not a Curse Married for Keeps Temperaments and your Love Life Should We Consider Children Understanding Depression How to be a better Mother-in-Law How to be a Godly Grandmother
With each chapter I read I was amazed at Beverly LaHaye's insight and wisdom. This is truly a healing book, which will make you feel like you have been enlightened. At least in the area of temperaments that is. By reading this book you will finally understand yourself on a deeper level. This means you can start to work on some of your faults so you can become a better person. You might also be overjoyed to learn that God has been working in your life because you now don't struggle with as many faults as you used to. Perhaps you used to be a very angry person but somehow you now hardly ever struggle with that problem anymore.
I can recommend this book to all Christian women who want to become the best person they can be in this lifetime. Depending on your age you are either going to realize you have a lot of work to do or you will be pleasantly surprised at how much wisdom you have acquired just from surviving life. I hope you will read this book with an open mind and an open heart. I know it will bless you.

Everyone should know This Dec 24, 2009
This type book should be a must read in the teen years. And learn why it is so hard to get along with some others. Need one that is titled " Teen ager"
Talk about Knowing Thyself!!! Aug 13, 2009
This book has really helped me to gain a better understanding of why I am the way that I am! I really enjoy the work done by the LaHayes. I have Tim LaHaye's "Why You Act the Way you Do" which covers temperaments in general. Then I bought "Understanding Your Man" to gain better insight on a male friend of mine which HELPED me TREMENDOUSLY! So, I went ahead and bought Beverly LaHaye's so I can see her perspective on how this all relates to women! It was a very wise decison because Bevery LaHaye does an excellent job on showing how temperament impacts women! It is really well written and I really appreciate how she uses scripture to support her points.
As a result, I have a much better understanding of myself as a MelPhleg! I always knew I was that from Tim LaHaye's book, but I just felt that the descriptions of the temperments were general and I wanted something that really dealt with things from a womans' perspective. I needed to understand some things in greater depth and in more specific contexts. This book hits the spot! She covers a lot of great topics and it has helped me to be aware of my blind spots!!
A Discussion about Personalities May 25, 2009
This book discusses the four main personality types, further information about these types, and more information about 12 other types that are related. Ever wonder why so-and-so does what s/he does? This book is about him/her. Ms. LaHaye's husband also writes about this kind of personality identification, but Ms. LaHaye tailors the work more towards females (though I'm male and I found a lot to learn in her book). This book could have been complicated to read, but Ms. LaHaye keeps it all on a conversational level that everyone can appreciate.
Reading this book was like seeing my self clearly in a mirror for the first time! Apr 15, 2008
This book is awesome and not what I expected at all. It lists a possible 12 personalty types (based on four dominant types found in the bible) and all their weakness and strenghts. It goes on to explain how your temperment (personality) effects different relationships: friendships,children,marriages,being single,ect. It uses a spiritual approach to deal with your particular weakness and reveals what you need to pray about. It also gives specific bible passages that are helpful. This book also celebrates the strengths we all have and how to maximize them to carry out God's will for you and to live a more fulfilling, happier life.
