Get out of that Pit by Beth Moore

From her first breath of fresh air beyond the pit, it has never been enough for Beth Moore to be free.
This best-selling author and Bible teacher who has opened the riches of Scripture to millions longs for you to be free as well—to know the Love and Presence that are better than life and the power of God’s Word that defies all darkness.
Beth’s journey out of the pit has been heart-rending. But from this and the poetic expressions of Psalm 40 has come the reward: a new song for her soul, given by her Saviour and offered to you in Get Out of That Pit—friend to friend.
This is Beth’s most stirring message yet of the sheer hope, utter deliverance, and complete and glorious freedom of God:
I waited patiently for the Lord
He turned to me and heard my cry
He lifted me out of the slimy pit
He set my feet on a rock
He put a new song in my mouth
It is a story, a song—a salvation—that you can know too.

Meet the Author:
Beth Moore is a teacher and writer of bestselling books and Bible studies whose public speaking engagements carry her all over the United States and the world. A dedicated wife, mother of two, and happy grandmother to two, Moore leads Living Proof Ministries.

My Take:
First of all I want to begin by saying, that I do not necessarily endorse Beth Moore and her ministry. There is a lot of controversy over her position and theology and I may not agree with everything she "preaches". Yet recently, I was given this book to review. It is one of her earlier books with a new cover for the 10 year anniversary. I read it with an open mind, willing to give her a chance and see what she had to say. 

There are many different types of pits, and most all of us find ourselves in one at some point or another. Beth Moore had a lot to share about the various ways  we get ourselves into the pit, and how to get out. Her message was not new revelation, it was shared with Scripture and back up from God's Word. She had some really good points and food for thought. Personally, I haven't found anything in this book that I thought disagreed with the Word of God. I did, however, find much I could relate to, as I have been in the pit before, and at times still find myself there on occasion. She has a good sense of humor and it helps keep the depressing/overwhelming aspect of being in the pit lighter. She offers hope - not in people but in God. As with any other self-help type book you read, you should always take time to compare it to Scripture and make sure it is not just the author's point of view.

I would recommend this book.

Disclosure: I received this book free from Handlebar to read. I was not asked to write a positive review, and all opinions are my own.
