Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Beth Moore has emerged as a popular speaker and writer in Christian circles, her Bible studies embraced by church groups across the country. Her latest full-length book, When Godly People Do Ungodly Things: Finding Authentic Restoration in the Age of Seduction, holds to her trademark conversational writing style (including the overuse of italics and hyperbole). Its message is disappointingly simplistic, choosing such easy targets as Internet pornography as evidence for satanic seduction, and even using diagrams of stick figures to prove her points. A New Voice in New Thought?

First, I must admit that this is the first Beth Moore book that I have read. I have heard her speak before (during a marriage conference), but have not read anything written by her.
Overall, I liked the message of the book. It is very difficult to live in a holy manner given the ungodliness that we face everyday in modern society. This book helps to understand the challenge, and offers an approach to prepare for the spiritual battles that you may face. Her warning that mature Christians may face the toughest battles is well placed since we do not talk much about it within the Christian community. I particularly liked her one analogy of "the lion is in the yard" - this section of the book is well done.
The book also offers a plan of restoration particularly aimed at those believers who have veered from the straight and narrow path. Although her message is simple, it is biblically based and may be useful for someone who is not sure what to do about the mess they have made of their life.
My main negative about the book is that her writing is not very concise. She writes likes she talks and includes a few too many personal comments throughout the text. Having said that, it is just a minor distraction, not a major irritation.
This book offers a wake-up call to the church about sin. We face an enemy who is ruthless in his approach to destroy our lives, or distract us from our call to follow Jesus. By reading this book you will be prepare yourself for the battle we face. If you do not think that we are in a battle then I suggest you read this book in order to face up to the reality of the challenges Christians face, even mature ones.

This title is the second I have read by Beth Moore, and it is the best yet. It is easy to read, but profound in nature. Many Christians may be inclined to miss the impact of this book because of its simplicity.
Moore here does not seek to be informative, but inspiring. There are many other volumes on the market that offer much better insight into the darkness of human nature. If a person is desiring that sort of deeper understanding, then this book is not the one to purchase. If a person is looking to find motivation to overcome his/her darker side however, then this title is the one to choose.
Moore divides her work into three basic sections: the Warning, the Watchman, and the Way Home. The Warning section describes the attacks Satan makes against devout believers. The Watchman section unfolds ways in which a disciple's defenses can be strengthened to resist such attacks. The Way Home section, as the title implies, points Christians in the right direction to recover from having succumbed to temptation and seduction from the Enemy.
I recommend this book highly to persons who are intent upon living consecrated, victorious lives for Jesus Christ. Moore's honesty, transparency and humility serve only to strengthen the arguments she presents. This one is not a book to miss!

First, a word about the audience this book addresses.

1. It does not address carnality. Sinnners are already lost - they are not Godly.
2. It does not address frauds. People that pretend to be Christians but lead a life opposed to God are sinners dressing up as lovers of God. She points out that just because someone fails does not mean they are fraudulent. Fraudulent believers never really lived for God anyway.

This book adresses people who walk with God daily, yet fall into pits of sin doing unGodly things.

2 Corinthians 11
2 For I am zealous for you with a godly eagerness and a divine jealousy, for I have betrothed you to one Husband, to present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
3 But I am fearful, lest that even as the serpent beguiled Eve by his cunning, so your minds may be corrupted and seduced from wholehearted and sincere and pure devotion to Christ.

Secondly, Some Christains believe it is not possible to be seduced one once you are a Christian. Beth Moore writes that this is false and is proved true by the above scripture (among others). Christians are being seduced TODAY. Consider David - a man after God's own heart - He fell into an adulterous relationship and didn't realize what he had done until the prophet revealed it to him! She writes that those of us who are already walking with God need to beware. We are living in the age of seduction and we who walk with God can fall into traps. Knowing this, we should feel the sense of urgency to guard ourselves against being deceived.

Beth Moore explains that she has received countless letters from true believers that have fallen into traps. Godly people that have a history of walking with God, but fall into sin share some common denominators that she shares in this book.
I highly recommend that every believer in Jesus Christ should read this book - now.

The title of this Beth Moore book is certainly a provocative and thought-provoking one. We all wonder why godly people stumble (including ourselves.) The author explains to us the seductive forces in the world today and shows how sincere Christians can fall into wrong thinking and acting. She then details how we can arm ourselves, through prayer, Bible-reading, accountability groups, and other methods to resist the temptation all around us and keep our eyes on God. She describes what repentance really is and shows us how to go about restoring our tarnished relationship with Christ. This is inspiring and is a wonderful "how-to" book for any Christian.
