Woman Thou Art Loosed! Written by T.D.Jakes (copyright 2016) focuses on the hurts of women. The author uses the woman at the well in Luke 13 as an example of a hurt woman. The author points out that the abuse a woman has had to deal with, can change her and can leave her bitter. He also points out that she is not responsible for what has happened to her. You can’t help where you have been or what has happened to you, but you can help where you are going from here. God doesn’t care who you are, where you came from, or even your social status, he cares about your heart. He wants to help you over come your pain and move forward. He will bring complete healing, the whole person, the body, the emotions and the spirit. He will deal with all the issues left over from abuse if we just ask him and have faith in him to heal us. God wants to give us strength to over come the pain. He wants us to celebrate who we are.
The author also touches on marriage and stresses we are to get married for the right reason. We are not to settle, we are to chose someone who is not less than what we want. We are to chose someone with strength, someone who will hold us, help strengthen us, build us up and be with us when trouble comes. He also points out that men should understand that women do not deal well with the stress of unpaid bills and financial disorder. Women need security, especially in a home. Women are made to be receivers and men were made to be givers.
This book is not what I thought it would be. I felt is was a little preachy at points. The book has some good points to it. The author uses stories from the Bible and Scripture a lot. But I was surprised the author referenced Mary Magdalene as a prostitute, no where in the Bible does it state that. The book was originally written in 1993.
I received a copy of this book from BookClub Network for an honest review.
