Reviews - What do customers think about Lies We Believe (Repack)?
I love destroying the lies in my life!!! Jan 16, 2006
This book has been my number one best 'life changing' book. I'm aware of the lies I believe, tell myself and unknowingly teach others. I wish I would have known about this when I was five. It's important to filter your thoughts, understand your behaviors and destroy the lies you tell yourself daily. Chris clarifies what's a lie and why and then empowers you, through Christ, to make changes and live in freedom. Walking in the truth is powerful...read his sequel to the book called, The Truths We Must Believe. Both are truly 'life changing.'
A Life-Changer May 31, 2002
My family practice physician "prescribed" this book for me during a very dark period in my life. It's short, practical and a very easy read. I make it a practice to re-read the book at least once a year.
While I've found the book makes an excellent gift for folks who are suffering, it's important for the giver to remember that reading this book -- or any book -- doesn't guarantee a magic fix. The reader must be committed to change. But sometimes when we're suffering, we're so overwhelmed that we don't know where to begin. This book has some mightily powerful suggestions.
Life Changing Truth Nov 14, 1999
This book was the beginning of a journey that has changed my life. After suffering through many years of anxiety and depression, among other things, The Lies We Believe showed me the misconceptions that I had been letting cause my unhappiness and ultimately it has led me to a deeper understanding of myself and Jesus Christ. If you take the Truth from this book to heart, you also can experience the peace that has begun to flow in my life.
